Well, not a lot going on at the Tie Dye T-Shirt Project site. What I had written for this blog, was mysteriously vanished by some unknown computer glitch so I lost my entire last blog. My apologies to anyone who we met and I didn’t get you mentioned in the blog.
In my haste to get the last blog out I forgot to mention the names of the three great guys we met last time out. They are:Ralph, William and Tim. Hi guys, thanks again for participating in the project.
The main tpic of conversation the past week was “the storm”. Mother nature had had enough and let go with a big blow. The city was in a state of chaos with trees down and power lines out everywhere. Something around 700000 people lost power. Ours was out just over two days. We had to throw out all our fridge and freezer food. But the real story was the damage to the forest!. There were literally hundreds of trees down. On our favourite walk along the Coquitlam River, it was like trying to get through the jungles of Vietnam. It was truly depressing and saddening to see all the carnage suffered by this beautiful land. One can only imagine what the bigger storms do to the landscape. I’m sure this was minor in the history of natural disasters. I shudder to think . But the GVRD have crews out by the hundreds and are doing yeoman work on returning things to some sense of order.. It is going to take a long time.
The Tie Dye T-Shirt Project came through the storm unscathed but hardly anyone has been around due to the difficulty of getting to the site. More unfortunate is that the last two shirts have been taken and no note of any kind was left. Hey if you want to make this much effort on picking up a shirt why not leave s little note. It will make it that much more fun for everyone in the project. Short, long whatever. Just give us something……
Not much time left on the clock for this year’s Tie Dye T-Shirt Project. Looks like we’ll fall just short of our goal of 100 shirts. We did have one more recent visitor to the site and his comment was: “What a great idea! Thank you sooooo much!” Signed Paul?
Youre welcome Paul. (Do we have the name right?) Glad to see you had a chance to pickup a shirt before we shut down for the year.
Cathy and Tie Dye Guy are going on a holiday to Harrison next week so t-shirts will not be available until the following week. Meanwhile have fun on th trails.”………………..TDG
