Hi Anne, Heather, J. Yes, there are some things that should never change, including snacking.

Heather: Calgary, May 29th, at McNally Robinson, in the evening but no time set yet. I'll let you know. Looking forward to meeting you!

Oh, that sounds so exciting! Hey, my dad lives in Penticton. Maybe I should give him a heads up.

I'm into everything except the weather. I don't want to talk about the weather.
