Noelle came over with a new batch of 13 cameras. I started with a straight forward early Canon digital SLR, but there are a number of weird and wonderful cameras to do next.

I made banana cream pie for the first time. Margaret had an extra shell and I've had a hankering for one for a long while. Neither Margaret nor William have EVER had a slice, which sort of blows my mind because it has always been one of my top picks when we are in a diner with home made pies. I used this online recipe (https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/homemade-banana-cream-pie/print/70269/) and it worked well.

We then took in the Stitch exhibition at the MacKenzie (always great. Carl was impressed and amused). On the way out, we were interrupted by the slowest family of geese that I've ever seen cross a road. They actually came to a full stop TWICE during the crossing.
Fortunately we took the advice from tree guys to take down the second tree beside the new garage site. It had a lot of rot on the inside, sometimes over half the core. At one point, they cut directly through a wasp next that had been built inside the rot. The tree cutter was subsequently stung in the face.

Margaret and William spent the day on the farm with visiting family. I spent the day with mine, first with dad - taking him for a donut which he consumed with such ferocity that he was either really hungry or really enjoying it. Later with mom who wanted to talk about a lot of stuff.
