She Keeps Me Smiling!

We finally arrived in Vancouver...
Trying to manever the big farm truck ladened with our bikes becomes a special challenge in itself.
By the time we parked it underground...
we left it there.

It's much easier being chauffeured by a taxi then trying to park the big farm truck.

Until...
we are riding along...
and suddenly the window opens,
and I hear this wild shrill whistle...

I glanced aside to see what the commotion was all about.
Well, that farmer man of mine spotted his daughter walking along the street,
as we neared the restaurant which was to be our meeting place.

The cab driver stopped and asked what was wrong.
"Oh, nothing...I just see my daughter walking down the street." he says excitedly
The driver asks, "Where are you from?"
"Chilliwack...."
that word defines us very quickly.
He's always been proud of his kids no matter where they are.

This morning as we enjoyed our breakfast together,
the waitress brings over a Zippy Cup to my table setting and she's smiling at me.
The waitress  played along and said, that my daughter had ordered this special for me.
 In my house you will notice that I have a collection of Zippy Cups.
Somehow there's a special connection between those Zippy cups and it keeps us smiling.

  5. We took a trip to Portland once and decided having a car was a real pain. We had to pay to park it at the hotel and we didn't even use it. Looks like a fun outing with your daughter!

  6. I'm glad that you could spend some time together. Did she even look when she heard the whistle or does she just ignore them by now? You got a great picture of her walking there! I hope you got around on those bikes without getting wet.
