Mr. Dylke and Mr. Bond

In the years that Craig's friend Peter shows up in Calgary, we have a tradition of taking their picture in their "poses." Here they are in August 2010. These two refuse to grow up!

Here they are - wrestling the notorious T-Rex.

Dinner at Chris and Karl's - April

Way back in April, my Mom and Dad showed up in Calgary. One of the "family things" we did was go over to my sister Chris's place for dinner. I got a few pix - but unfortunately, not of everyone. Here are the better ones of the pix I did get....

Chris.
Carol and Chris (or as Joe likes to say - the "Ugly Step Sisters" - although they really aren't all that ugly! :)

This is Chris's friend's daughter. Chris's friend is Joanne - but for the life of me, at this moment I cannot remember daughter's name.

Rhonwyn and Craig. This is the best one I got - still not too great. We need to practice.

Karl.

New York, New York (78)

Nov 4/10

We struck off to the American Museum of Natural History. To get there, we took the subway - it was pretty easy - and an experience of it's own. No pix though.

Anyway - the museum is a big place - we didn't see nearly all of it - because it's big, and because I was fighting off a migraine - a fight I lost mid afternoon - so we had to cut our visit short. However, we did get to the "important" part - the dinosaur floor. Dinosaurs greet you in the entry lobby as well - now made famous in Night at the Museum.

There are many other interesting things in the museum - it's not just dinos, prehistoric reptiles, fish and mammals - but that's mostly what we took pix of.

So - here I am in the lobby.










And some fish.

I guess I was standing crooked when I took this...









There are also some dioramas - this one of the arctic.


Finally- for Pam - our hotel room. Small but nice. We were actually pretty pleased with the hotel - the Carleton on Madison.
