Getting A Move On

My parents came up the other day to help us get started moving. We took our couches and mattress to the dump. I have to say that they have quite the setup at the Spyhill dump in Northern Calgary. It looks more like a park than a landfill, at least the part where most people go. You drive in, have your car weighed, then you drive up a small hill, back up to the edge of the hill and then you throw your garbage over the edge of hill into giant metal bins. When the bins are full,they take them away and dump them in a location of their choosing. I'm sure this is a much more economical way of filling up the landfill.

When we got back from the dump it was time to move the piano. We had Steve Meldrum and Ethan Nelson help us. It was a good thing too, because the piano is very heavy. We invited them and their wives to go have a little fire with us in Bowness Park. It's been a long time since we have had a fire but with the great weather, we couldn't resist.
