We woke up to rain this morning...actually the rain woke us up at about 2 a.m. and with the thunder rumbling in the distance, Steve thought he had better put the TV antenna down.
We walked up to Ken and Charlene’s just after 9 a.m. and Ken had breakfast sure smelled good! Gee, I could get used to this pretty easily...Ken has been feeding us well this weekend! On second thought, maybe not...I have enough problems with my waistline as it is!

Ken is going to take us into Calgary today to the Pro Bass Shop...Steve really liked that idea...and then to Science World to see the Body World and Brain Display (I wasn`t too sure about that one...but...okay, I`ll go). Andrew, Ken`s son, was going to stay home with Charlene.

The drive into Calgary was beautiful, even if it was cloudy out. The countryside is so pretty—rolling green hills with trees in the gullies... quite lovely. The new Cross Iron Mall is in the northeast part of Calgary and when we arrived at the Pro Bass Shop, we couldn`t believe the size of it! The store is enormous and is more like a museum inside than a store. It is a showcase of local antiques and trophy mounts of fish and wildlife. There are hundreds of animals...from moose to deer to fox, even a polar bear...incredible. It is all displayed with the animals in their environment...a lot of time and effort went into it—very well done! There is even a huge aquarium with salmon swimming in it as well as a waterfall into a pond with more fish.

After Steve made a couple purchases, we strolled through the new mall then it was time to head downtown to Science World. The display was really quite interesting...I just had to try to ignore the fact that they were all real bodies that had been sliced and diced...

We were back home by 4 p.m. The sun had decided to make an appearance, so we sat out on the deck enjoying our visit with Ken and Charlene. After a feast of Chinese food...thanks, Andrew for picking it up...we watched a movie highly recommended by Ken... Orgazmo. For those of you that have met Ken you know his sense of humour! It was a spoof on the making of porn movies...too funny...and very cheezie like Batman or Gilligans Island! Well okay, then...let’s call it a night, shall we?!

Thanks for a great visit Ken and Charlene. Never a dull moment!
