Friday Pie & I drove down to Woodstock and returned the rental van Dad had arranged for us. We've been staying with him & S since then. Monday we'll be on the road to pick up another rental in Fredericton and heading on to the Miramichi to see my cousin Drew & his family.

Here's to the land of the shamrock so green, Here's to each lad and his darlin' colleen, Here's to the ones we love dearest ...
