Dress as a hippy or for the Circus Royale

CICK concert, Tina Turner tribute a chance for Smitherees to dress to party.

While downtown I over heard a sales clerk ask a young woman where she was from, was she a tree planter? The young woman was dressed something like the “hippies” in the 1960s did. She said she was a tree planter and how did he know she wasn’t from around here? He said “you don’t look like someone who lives here.”

It left me wondering what does a person from Smithers really look like?

Speaking about the Legion, I just read an article written by Stepharry Crowley, Legion Riders volunteer coordinator: Legion Riders – It’s a Freedom Thing. He speaks to riding a motorcycle: “you feel the wind, smell nature, hear the roar of your pipes. You can’t help feeling one with the lush beautiful world around you. Legion Riders was created by and for Legion members to demonstrate unity – as Veterans and Veteran supporters – and to share our support.” Check out legionriderseast@legion.ca and legion.ca/communities-youth/legion-riders. Another one is nationalmemorialride.com, all good sites to learn more about the Legion Riders.

Closing with – homogeneous: of the same or a similar kind or nature; of uniform structure or composition throughout. Derives from the Greek roots homos, meaning “same” and genos, meaning “kind.”

One more thing: “The best way to predict your future is to create it.” –Stephen R. Covey
