Although I stepped outdoors only once today, it has been busy with many people coming and going. Andy took Vladika Lazar to Abbotsford where he bought a new video camera and, since today was the beginning of Black Friday, he got an excellent discount. Andy later dropped in a couple of times to do various chores. Others, whom we have not seen for a long time, came visiting, bringing us some of our favourite food. More than twenty members of Narcotics Anonymous came for their weekly meeting and Kyrill brought an assortment of buns,and croissants for them to have with coffee. He also took away bags of garbage that had accumulated over the past few days. Since we have no garbage collection here, we appreciate people taking it away.
