You won't get this in Surrey.....

Last Friday I finally came to the realisation that I'm glad to be living in Grand Forks right now. Tell you why.... It's Friday night, and I'm heading into Overwaitea for a quick pick up of some food, which I figure will be a two minute stop. I walk in and right away I'm talking to one of the nicest guys in the world, Rick Rougeau, and his lovely wife Sabrina (Who is coincidently one of the nicest women in the world). We start talking and before I know it 10 minutes have gone by and as we start to say goodbye in walks one of my best friends (And T-Ball overlord) Brian McGraw, who I proceed to talk to and start to shop with. As Brian and I walk around the store we are greeted by familiar faces and smiles from all around. People I haven't seen in years coming over to shake my hand and are genuinely happy that I've moved back to the 'Land of Sunshine and Borscht'.

All in all, I think it took me an Hour to get my shopping done, which, by the way, consisted of Two comic books, A pizza, and a bag of Hershey kisses for those who want to know... yes, yes I am well aware that combo isn't exactly how Hugh Hefner spends his Friday nights. The smiling, the friendly faces, and the waving, was something that made me realise this is a great community, and I am really glad to be living here at this point in my life.

Hey quick Meat Draw update. I was shut out in my bid for a seventh consecutive meat win two saturdays ago, HOWEVER last Saturday I was back on a winning track as not only did I win more meat but I also claimed a $100.00 Pull tab prize as well! Not bad huh?

Gregg - it's Glacia from over at Corrie Canuck.

I'm a ex-Surrey chick...I fled from there when I was 17 and have never looked back.

Did you live there too or were you force to spend time there?
