The event of the week at the villa was Fred & Mariano Krukoff's 70th wedding anniversary.
Few of us reach that milestone. With Judy Skiba on piano, they danced to the anniversary waltz at noon. And huge balloons are still hanging over our table.
It was Fred who proposed they sing happy birthday for my 96th.
Visitors this week were Wendy Turton, who was my flower girl (her mother a matron of honour) and her sister Jocelyn Hainsworth of Redvers. They are both keen gardeners, so we toured the courtyard.
The visitor’s tracking lists have been filed for COVID-19 tracking. Visitors were Wayne Smyth with Larry, Charlotte Kovach with library books and a movie, Sherry Wilson with Mildred, Verla Smith with Ted, Ingrid Hansen and Sharon Kennett with Mildred, Val Puska with Marie, Myrna Bleris and Diane Bourgeois, Dennis and Gtsele Toms with Grace, Phil Mark with Janet, David and Aimee Creshton with Cliff, Larry Husband with Irene, Jeff and Rhonda Ross with Dosy, April Gaiger with Carol, Remi & Gwen Donais with Ruth, Richard Ketcheson with Betty, and Leora visited Harold and Cheryl.
I missed the crop tour that same afternoon. Drivers were Mary Thiessen, Bree Moore and Pastor Alex and his wife Amber. Thank you kindly for driving. The residents could inform Alex of harvest problems and customs in this corner of Saskatchewan. Manuela Dick and her fiancé Jonas Penner visited us and sang for us.
The Dick family is moving to Steinbach, Man. Sandra came to work just after one came here, and she has risen from caregiver to cook. In spare moments she sits at the piano and plays for us. We will really miss their tender loving care. The wonders of Internet.
Philip brought his computer and I heard my granddaughter in Philadelphia sing her auditions for the choir at her new college. At the moment all classes are online from home so all four of their family have Internet jobs in a house with air conditioning.
