Mitchell has begun his life out in Calgary AB. He has taken on the huge challenge of living away, far away, from home & heading a new job in the elevator industry. With him now done Durham College in Toronto, we had him over to the homestead to present him with a graduation gift. Last December when we were on the cruise (in the Carnival boat that stayed upright!)he saw a watch that showed all the workings through the front & back, he was also the penniless student & admired the watched & put it back. Bill & I decided it was the perfect gift 'of time' for him. We purchased the watch & held it for this occasion. Last year we also found a card that was so him, now was the time to bring everything together...
Later that Saturday night, Mitchell had his going away party at Crabby Joe's & I captured this picture of him, with his grandpa Ernie, his dad & brother Nick! a rare photo indeed.
Mitchell left Monday morning on the 7am flight with his dad. I miss the tight hugs from my Boo Boo Bear already! ...he'll be home for Christmas, however I still have a heavy heart.
I do have the grand-puppy Diesel to keep me busy till then!
