I used to struggle a lot more with shopping in consignment stores. I have gotten past that and it can be fun to find treasures. Wednesday, I went to one of my tourist highlights in Saskatoon, PBR! It's a consignment store for COSTCO. You can get some pretty great clothes and other items for a portion of the price. You do have to look for the reasons why people returned items. Sometimes it's the wrong size, but sometimes there are flaws. Last year, they would have huge cardboard boxes that had lots of clothes just dumped in and you just go sifting through finding what you liked and your size, if they had it. It was something I enjoyed doing. I loved the surprises. This year, they have begun to organize it more. They have rods where they hang the clothes on hangers by size, so now you go to your size and look for what you like. It does go quicker and you have a better idea if there is something you like. They have just begun doing this and I noticed there were still cardboard boxes with piles of clothes in them, but they were not out for the public. Anyway, I did walk away with some clothes for at least half the price of what I would have paid if I bought them originally. It is one of my requests to visit when I go to Saskatoon. :)
Kim and Orisi have a puppy named George. George and I became fast friends. :)

|Myrna caught the first fish, a walleye.|
|There it is!|
|My first fish, a walleye also!|
|Next, I didn't get pictures of all the fish I caught, but of the fish I caught, they were just about all on the same day!|

The last morning there, I was sitting in the porch and listening to the birds and sounds around the cabin. I took this video.
The last day in Saskatchewan I went golfing with Nick, Scott and Kim. It's been quite a while since I swung a golf club. It was still fun.

I have left Saskatchewan and am now in Utah, Salt Lake City. Yup, feeling totally blessed!
