Still walking but getting more steps with wearing my ankle strap. I swear it does look like one of those monitoring things to keep you in the house but I am logging or at least getting all my steps counted.

Attended the Repair Café at the Creation Station 3866 Railway Ave. Several wonderful people will check out your broken or damaged items: electronics, clothing, furniture, bicycles, outdoor gear, ceramics/glass and more. These are volunteer fix-it experts with the tools to tackle most any repairs. This is a once a month event, the last Wednesday of the month with Wednesday Oct. 30, 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. being the very last time for the season. I took some old watches in hoping they would be able to fix them. After so many years I was able to hear my father’s pocket watch ticking. It sounded like his heart beat to me and I choked back tears.
And another reminder: Square Dancing at the Telkwa Seniors Centre, Sunday evenings at 7:00 p.m. They have started the first one Sept. 29 but said you can still join in. More information: Bob Currie firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 250-643-4672.
