Julie and I were invited to join our good friends, Helen and Karl, at their place for drinks and dinner on Friday night. Julie and Helen attended lab school together from 1976 to 1979 at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, ON. We’ve remained friends all these years even though we didn’t see them for long periods of time. It was a really nice break for Julie after many long hours caring for her ailing parents in the hospital.
Karl made us all a Caesar to savour while we enjoyed a few rays of spring sunshine.
Helen and Karl and their new pup, an Australian cattle dog – a red heeler.
They have a beautiful place near Harrowsmith, ON. Helen and Karl raise many animals for food and enjoyment on their acreage. Karl is a retired horticulturist and has an amazing garden each year.
The 2 college buddies.
After a great steak BBQ we all visited with some wine in their family room around a nice warm wood stove. Ah, the good life! A great night with good friends.
…take care, the muleskinner
