About a thousand years ago I grew up in southern Ontario, hating high school, and living for the summer in and around Parry Sound. Loved canoeing, swimming, summer camp. Found my groove at university – math, english, business, marching band…all were amazing. Met and married a crazy guy from Vancouver and moved out to the wet coast Added a couple more initials to the end of the name, worked in the corporate world for a bunch of years, climbed lots of mountains and hiked over lots of rivers. We popped out a couple of extremely crazy kids and added a lovely yellow lab to the mix. Fast forward several years and one kid is going into third year university back east, and the other actually graduated from high school and is spending her first year of university in the UK. After many years of love and good times,our wonderful lab passed on, so now we have a sweet little boy lab who loves to kiss and lick everyone and everything. And I mean EVERYTHING!
A couple more years have somehow evaporated, and we have moved homes, experienced many family medical challenges and my babies are now in their twenties, still at school though – one in the UK and 1 in Ontario.
And my sweet hairy little boy is still a licker.
