Our New Postal Code Is...

...not to be revealed quite yet - I don't want to jinx it. Chris and I went down to Maple Creek yesterday to meet with the sellers and the realtor. A deal has been made, so it is just contingent on a few things (anybody have pasture for 250 cows available??) It was a good afternoon, and we ended the day at a restaurant to celebrate the days' events. This is where we got to have the delicacy "Horse's Nuts" for dessert. Now, this must be just a Maple Creek thing, definitely not a Saskatchewan thing. I would have remembered this growing up. The nuts were just fine, creamy and tasty. Now I will have to find a watermelon to fit on top of Chris's big German head so that we can be true Saskatchewanites to show Roughrider pride - which is a requirement for the land deal.
I was going to stay up for the Royal Wedding this morning - but after arriving back at 12:30 am, I thought I better have a lie in. I lied in until 6 am and then saw the highlights - the wedding dress (no where near what William's mom had worn), the marriage vows (William Arthur Philip Louis -dear Katey didn't muck up this long handle) and the balcony kiss(es). Yes, I am a monarchist - might be because my great-great aunt was a lace maker for a royal wedding wedding dress back in the day (the lace bun is sitting in the Broadview Museum), and a great aunt served tea to the queen. When Prince Charles was in Calgary - I saw him up close when he walked through the barns during 4-H on parade. Maybe I will pay them a visit when I go to England this year. Wonder if I can have tea - I like mine with a little milk.
