Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had some great staff meetings over the years. That’s when we all learn about “what’s new” for the next season and get updates about staff promotions and such.

It was snowing quite enthusiastically at the time, which added to the festive nature of this surprise mystery trip.
We headed north on Highway 162 through Ferdinand to Jasper.

Saving Mr. Banks? A wonderful movie – and a heartfelt reminder that you never know how a person’s childhood has impacted that person’s view of the world.
And that our world is a sweeter, kinder place thanks to Mary Poppins, P.L. Travers, and Walt Disney.
