    After brunch I went to the bus stop to get to the park and it was pouring and no bus came, About half an hour later I was soaked through and through and then a bus came along across the street going in the direction that would take me home. I got on it and went home.

      I think that was a sign for you. Someone perhaps watching over you? I am glad you had a nice brunch this morning.

    There was a lot of rain but after the first 10 minutes , it didn't matter because I got pretty wet ,well really wet . But it was still a nice walk.

    I have a good time too. It was a very nice walk followed by coffee. I enjoyed the conversations with all of you. I also hope to see all at the picnic. Peace and prosperity to all. :-)

    I got there at 3pm on the button. I hope I didn't miss anyone. We walked in the rain and talked for 45 minutes. I had a nice time walking in the rain, and then went to Tim Horton's on Grant. I finally got my soaking wet clothes off and am trying to warm up. I feel invigorated, but glad to be home now. It was nice to meet you Jordan. Hope to see you at the picnic. Great seeing you both, Lisa & Ray. Ken, did we miss you some how? I am glad we got the rain out of the way today. Perhaps the picnic next weekend will be warm and sunny. Here's hoping!

    I am up for going for coffee if anyone else is. I Love walking in a warm rain but it is a bit too cool for me today. Congratulations to all those who ran in the Marathon this morning. True Winnipegers.

    I may show up if the day is nice, I'm really sorry.....

  • Ken

    Winnipeggers are used to less than perfect weather. That's what makes us special people in Canada. I'll be there.

    I am up for the day. It is 3:40am. It is still really raining. I will be heading out shortly for work. So far there is 29 that say they are still going. So we will see how many brave the weather for later today. I still plan on meeting at the Qualicum Family Center. Worst case scenario the meet up turns into simply going for coffee, but it is still on. If you change your mind on going, change your rsvp. Thanks. See you at 3pm!

      Wow you are an early riser Stacey!!! I'm going to be one of the ones to bail...just too wet for me. Have a good time you brave walkers!

    Don't look for me, I won't be braving the weather! Wishing the rest of you lots of fun. See you next Saturday in St Vital Park.

    Sorry, have to work :(

    June 14, 2014

    • Stacey

      I completely understand.

      June 14, 2014

  • Stacey

    Todd, tomorrow is a busy day for me, so remind me to give you the tickets. I will have them on me, but I am concerned I will get distracted and forget to give them to you when I see you. I think you need them ahead of time.

    June 14, 2014

  • H.S.

    Hi Stacey. Even if it rains or thunderstorms or bright sunshine, i will come. Just let me know in case the event is being canceled. :)

    June 13, 2014

    • Stacey

      I will note on the screen if it is cancelled. But just like you, I will be there. I have to work before hand though, just so you know.

    • H.S.

      Yes. Sounds good.:-) And for all those who are afraid of getting touched by rain, Umbrella is the best option with a hot coffee. :-)

      June 14, 2014

  • Stacey

    On Bob FM just now they said thunder storms and light showers all weekend long. I should have known, the Ex is here! LOL Anyway, I am still going down on Sunday. I will check inside the Qualicum Center as well as outside, incase of light rain. The place is only open till 4pm, just so you know. If you change your mind on going, so be it. Kindly change the rsvp if you cannot go.

  • Kim

    Stacey - If it rains don't expect me - I won't have aces to a computer and will not be able to cancel

    June 13, 2014

    • Stacey

      I wont have access to a computer either and wont be able to check. Thanks though for the info.

      June 13, 2014

    • Stacey

      Although others will be able to. So if you cant go, and do have access to a computer, please change the rsvp.

      June 13, 2014

  • candace

    Unfortunately, something has come up and I will not be able to attend. My apologies. Maybe next time?

    June 13, 2014

    • Stacey

      OKay, perhaps next time...

      June 13, 2014

  • Todd H.

    Can we meet IN the duck pond? I mean if it's hot out :)

    1 · June 13, 2014

    • Stacey

      I don't recommend it. LOL

      June 13, 2014

  • Betty R.

    I much prefer the family centre or in front of the family centre like the last time. So that is where \I will be in front of the family centre. Hope I am not alone.

    June 12, 2014

    • Stacey

      I don't understand. It has not changed. We are meeting in front of the Qualicum Family Center which is next to the duck pond.

      June 13, 2014

  • Betty R.

    I meant let me know the location we are to meet. Is it by the duck pond at the family centre/restaurant

    June 11, 2014

    • Stacey

      Sorry for the slow response Betty, I went to bed early yesterday. I was exhausted. Yes you are exactly right. Meet for 3pm at the duck pond at the family center. If it is better for you we can just meet at the family center. It may be raining a little that day.

      June 12, 2014

  • Betty R.

    meeting time 3 pm check
    Please let me know so I won't be wondering around the park aimlessly.

    June 11, 2014

  • Stacey

    FYI - The forecast right now for Sunday is 90% light rain. Just thought I better let you know. It would have to be pouring to keep me from going. Although keep in mind in the first part of the day I have to drive for the Manitoba Marathon, and I am hoping that wont delay me getting there on time. I am sure I should make it, but thought I better let you all know the situation.

    June 11, 2014

    • Stacey

      I just found out I start at 4am to do this job and should finish close to 2pm. I hope I have the energy... I am still coming though. See you then.
