2007 started with a mild winter, we are told that with La Niña, we can expect colder and snowier winters from now on, so in January we got to skate a bit.
In February, Luke for the first time, performed in the East Coast Music Festival, at the 48 hours of music – so he played at 6:00 A.M. in the LiquorDome. The group was ‘good’; they were missing a lead singer (they fired him.). The crowd, at that hour consisted of drunken bar tenders (m/f) from around the city, and ourselves, mostly.
Late February, we could stand the Winter no longer.
In March, Gail went to

We continued our on and off love affair with gardening. Successes with parsnips, garlic and potatoes were not overshadowed by the many disappointments of this rainy summer. I was overjoyed that the Jewelweed seeds that we had picked at Gross Morne,

Luke has now completed his course work in property appraisal, from UBC. He has some paper or presentation that must be accepted for full graduation. He has been busy working but now has found time for romance in his life – so now we don’t see him much either!
For about three years now, I have been boring people with stories, histories, paintings and pictures from Hyatt Verrill, (just see my website stillwoods.blogspot.com/2007/11/index1.html). Well finally there are some ‘hard’ products from my work. The Autobiography of Verrill has been produced as a ‘draft’ and a photobook ‘Visual Verrill’ is available. I love doing this work and have a little fear that I am nearing the end of the research.
The year 2007 ended with a little down and a little up. Lambert, Gail’s brother and Ron were repairing the barn when some supports gave out, collapsing on both of them. The injuries are terrible but as we can attest, they are both making marvelous improvement.
