I think I'll start with the Unhappy News...
A friend of mine was one of the three Canadians killed in that bus crash in Mexico on Monday.
They are in the middle of 'negotiations' to get her body sent home. (basically finding the lowest bidder) It's tragic. I can't even look at the pictures. Not looking forward to the funeral.

But I'll close with Happy News...
*yawn* I'm not used to staying up this late but I'm sooooooo glad I did.
"Murdoch Mysteries" is my new bestest addiction ever. *happy sigh*
The Alberta Badlands!!!! Only one of my dream photography locations to visit one day!!!!!!
::falls over flailing::

Sabu, Ris, Lori...summer road trip....?!?!? It's that or Kamloops & Tranquille! :o)

My goodness, your friend. This is such sad news, it's so tragic. *gives you hugs*

I haven't been watching MM since the first one - PURELY because circumstances have prevented it, and I'm not used to watching TV serieses on a scheduled weekly basis anymore, ahaha. I think Ris is in the same boat as me, so I'm eagerly waiting for it to come out on DVD!

::hugs tight:: It really is tragic. Sadly drunk drivers will continue to devastate families and friends. Fuck!

Oh, oh, I missed last Wednesday's MM episode about Jekyll & Hyde but caught it this last Saturday!!! So - try and be near a tele on Saturday around 6:00 and see if this week's dinosaur episode airs.

I'm going to want to have the season DVDs of this show too!!! *muah*

I'm so sorry, sweetheart. If there's anything I can do or if you want to talk, let me know. *snug*

::clings:: Thank you sweetie. It's still so shocking. She has had a dog and two cats. They're never going to see their mamma again. I know that sounds silly but it sets me off on a crying jag again! But life goes, right? I can't even imagine what her daughter is dealing with. ::clings tighter::

Oh my god, that's dreadful. I'm so sorry, honey.

I still have your initial e-mail about Tranquille; we should TOTALLY try to actually do it this year! I mean, now I have a good car and Kamloops isn't too far away, so we should be able to manage it, yes? YES!

Thank you pet. It's all so crazy surreal! She was at Photo Club on Tuesday, laughing and sharing and now . . . it sucks. She was a cool (old) gal. She's going to be missed. Her daughter's in the process of finding an afforable way to get her body home. :o\ The funeral's going to be tough But time heals things.

OMG! You still have the Tranquille email! That's so awesome! So, yes. YES!
