Welcome to the Neighborhood

Friday, September 30, 2022

Two nice ladies from the neighborhood stopped over this week and brought this beautiful  orchid. Was quite a surprise- even got a card and said : " Welcome to the Neighborhood". We live in a little side street with only about 9 homes so it's nice that most have welcomed us. Not all mind you.. two homes have kept to  themselves but most have at least said hi or introduced themselves.

Brooks Alberta Corn Maze and Farm

Monday, September 26, 2022

Visited a nice little farm a few days ago, not far from us, in Brooks, Alberta

Visited some animals, ( love them!)  picked some raspberries and did a bucket list- Corn Maze... although I don't think I would do one again. I went into panic mode in there, ( and we found our way out in 7 minutes! If you would do the scavenger hunt one they said it would take 45-60 minutes.. no thanks- too long for me) .  Good thing for me that Gerry has a better sense of direction than me. Definitely too we both said a buddy system is the best with those things. Not really good for someone like me who has anxiety and am claustrophobic.. but I like to at times try to over come my fears as well. Have you been in a corn maze before?

Costs for visit: $13 each for corn maze
                      $5 to pick about 2 cups raspberries

PBR Canada’s Elite Cup Series Presented by Wrangler Returns to Medicine Hat Oct. 15

Friday, September 23, 2022

For the second time in history, PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Canada’s elite Cup Series, presented by Wrangler, will travel to Medicine Hat, Albertareturning to Co-op Place on October 15, 2022 with the PBR Robertson Implements Classic, presented by Art’s Excavating.

PBR Canada’s Cup Series regularly features Canada’s best riders alongside some of the league’s top international athletes, squaring off against the rankest bucking bulls from across the nation.

For one night only, fans will witness exhilarating 8-second rides and wrecks throughout the action-packed event as the PBR’s courageous bull-riding athletes face off against their 2,000-pound opponents.

The PBR Robertson Implements Classic, presented by Art’s Excavating will mark the seventh event of the 2022 PBR Canada Cup Series, presented by Wrangler. The tour will launch on April 23 in Winnipeg, Manitobaand travelling across Alberta and Saskatchewan prior to arriving in Medicine Hat.

PBR Canada’s elite Cup Series, presented by Wrangler debuted in Medicine Hat in 2021, when two-time PBR Canada Champion Zane Lambert (Ponoka, Alberta) went a perfect 2-for-2 to win the tour stop and surge to No. 2 in the national standings.

Lambert, began his outing inside Co-op Place in successful fashion, recording the sixth-best score of Round 1 when he covered Bob Rock (Skori Bucking Bulls) for 83 points.

The qualified ride avenged Lambert’s lone buckoff from his victory in Lethbridge, Alberta, earlier that season, when the Skori Bucking Bulls’ bovine athlete got the better of him in a swift 1.84 seconds during Round 2 inside ENMAX Centre.

In the championship round bull draft on Saturday night, Lambert once again elected to go head-to-head against a familiar opponent, drafting Lil’ Hooch (Flying High Rodeo Co.). The Ponoka-native covered the bull for 87.5 points in mid-August en route to a runner-up finish at the Touring Pro Division event in Coronation, Alberta.

Fast forward three months, and Lambert once again made the requisite 8, this time marked a championship round-best, and event victory-clinching, 86.5 points.

Lambert’s flawless finish earned him a crucial 68 national points. After travelling to Medicine Hat ranked No. 4 in the nation, the 35-year-old surged to No. 2 in the race for the 2021 PBR Canada Championship.

While Lambert remained atop the national standings for the remainder of the season, he was narrowly edged by Cody Coverchuk (Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan) and Dakota Buttar (Kindersley, Saskatchewan) for the year-end honor.

After a dominant season, including four event wins across all levels of competition and a victory in one of the division’s special 5/5 Bucking Battles, Buttar entered the 2021 PBR Canada National Finals with a firm grip on the No. 1 ranking in the race for the 2021 PBR Canada Championship, and accompanying $50,000 bonus.

However, a groin injury initially sustained at the final regular-season event of the year proved too much for Buttar to battle, inevitably sidelining him from competition the last day of the campaign.

With the title decided on the final outs of the year, 2018 PBR Canada Champion Coverchuk mounted an incredible come-from-behind surge, erasing Buttar’s 53.66-point lead, to conclude the year No. 1 in the nation, capturing his second career national championship.

The Saskatchewan contender clinched the title, and his share of the record $175,000 purse paid out at the year-end event, with an impressive 89.5-point ride aboard annual PBR Canada Bull of the Year contender Finning Lil Shorty (Flying Four Bucking Bulls).

Coverchuk is now one of just three riders to have won the coveted PBR Canada Championship in multiple seasons, joining the likes of two-time title holder Lambert and three-time Champion Aaron Roy (Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan).

The bull riding action for PBR Canada Cup Series’ Robertson Implements Classic, presented by Art’s Excavating, begins at 7:00 p.m. MDT on Saturday, October 15, 2022.

Tickets for the event go on sale Friday, March 4 at 12:00 p.m. MST, and start at $35, standard fees may apply, and can be purchased online at, by phone at 403-502-8777 and at the Co-op Place and Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre Box Office.

The Itsy Bitsy Spider!

Wednesday, September 21, 2022

This home we moved into is a mobile home with a basement. Never had a basement before in all my years being a home owner so wasn't too sure what to expect. I know my mom's and sister's used to have insects. This one is fixed up for the most part. A work in process it will need to be. But daughter had been staying with us for a bit since we moved in, and already found this monster spider in basement.. and even said there was a cricket heading down the stairs the other day!

I definitely am a big bug hater! 

We have an abundance of wasps here too when it was hot, so I will be sure to start the spraying for them once daughter is gone and finished with her visit. Don't want to pollute her downstairs right now!

My mom always said spiders were good and they kill the other bugs but its still doesn't mean I like the idea of them hanging around. How about you?

Looking Forward To A Night of Entertainment with Music from the 50's and 60's

Thursday, September 15, 2022

With just moving to Medicine Hat, Alberta a couple of months ago, we were already seeing  that the city has offered so much more than our small town in Saskatchewan did. 

Was super excited to see the Relive the Music Show of the 50's and 60's to be coming here. 

Saw the videos of songs that are sung at the show. Which include songs by Patti Page, Dean Martin, Johnny Cash, Fats Domino, Frank Sinatra, Little Richard, The Platters, Bill Haley and the Comets, Elvis, Paul Anka, Patsy Cline, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly, Ricky Nelson, Chuck Berry,  Chubby Checker, Dion, The Four Seasons, The Beatles, Roy Orbison, The Temptations, The Supremes, The Rolling Stones, Sonny and Cher, Neil Diamond, The Beach Boys, James Brown and more….

Show dates run till late November 2022 and they will be in Medicine Hat on October 6th, and it looks to be a great time...Be sure though to check out 

You can watch the video and see what I mean! 

The cast of Relive the Music features World Champion Luisa Marshall as seen on Oprah and ELLEN (performing as herself not Tina Turner) and 4 to 5 more carefully chosen male and female frontline singers that perform throughout the show.  Although, the show isn’t designed to be a tribute show as such, there may be special Tribute guests appearing at times and the cast will be making costume changes during the show to convey the look and feel of artists in each era.  The Luisa Marshall Show band will be performing throughout. It’s all about the great music, dance and trivia of that era. We can't wait!
