Just because he broke his bone!!1 LET HIM KNOW

Most of the time we are out in the cabin without running water ...nor power.....nor phone service (of any kind)...but when we come to town for supplies we check our e mail and try to blog.

Take care Standrings...as best as ye can...

Lovingly Mother Standring/Nana Standring...xoxoxox

Good news and bad news

Hello Mom and Dad,
Good news, my contracting company (Total Enerflex) found me another operating job with a small oil company (Arcan Resources Ltd.) located up in Manning, Alberta on the Chinchaga (that's a road) in the hamberg area (that's the area of the road). I'm getting the same rate of pay ($26/per hour), and I'm working the same schedule (2 week's on 2 weeks off). Its a small operation with only me and another guy looking after 5 oil wells, a battery (that's a first stage refinery plant), and a water injection facility plant (that pumps water into the formation to increase oil recovery). That's my good news, cool ahh?
The bad news is that yesterday Caleb fell off Roxi's trampoline and landed on his head busting his eye brow open which required tape stitch's, even worse he landed on his wrist and it has a hair line fracture that will be casted tomorrow. He would have got it casted today but the doctor missed it and Corinna got a call from the radiologist latter in the day letting her know that they had missed it, and to come in the following day for his cast. Poor Caleb having a lonely summer that just got a little worse!!!
Well that's all for now, I can see from your pictures that you're having a great time, I wish my family and I could be there too.
Love Joe.

A quick hello

Just wanted to send out a quick hello from Kelowna. The weather is hot and the workload heavy. It's great. It's so nice to have access to the blog again (after the Chinese government declared "Mother Standring" a security risk and blocked her blog from the whole country. Joe I love the pics from your yard. It looks great... And Calebs hair looks fantastic!!!!! Don't let anyone cut it.... It's way too AWESOME!!!!

Love you all. Will post some fun stuff soon. Don't forget to drop me a line as soon as you can if you're planning to visit (I have rented a 2 bedroom apartment for you all)
