Happy Birthday Beth

Hope you have a great day what ever you are doing, we will all be celebrating for you tonight at the stuff swap.

Paul and I are off to Island Perk now to have a frappe, hand out a few more flyers, order bbq from Fantasy and rustle up a couple of special door prizes for tonight's swap.

Pics and details to follow .....

The swap was a lot of fun. Not as many people came out as last time but a lot people who came were friends that had never been to the other two so that worked out well, everyone was happy and found something good to take home.

Especially Cindy when we surprised her with a bike to replace a stolen one.

Big shout out to Amanda and Rosie who made the getting a bike easy with their generous donation, it was a perfect fit for Cindy. Also thanks to all who made a contribution to help us buy a bike basket and a sturdy lock and all who came out to see it happen.

We surprised Cindy by having her win a door prize of the basket and lock and when she went outside to show Paul both Pauls were waiting outside with the new bike.

I got a copy of O magazine (this month which is a rare on the island) a boating magazine, and a metal food warmer hurricane season. Paul got a shirt a book and some cd's. (brought 3 bags took home one 1/2 full not bad)

After the swap we Stopped by to see all our friends that had gone on to canucks, have a bit of Dennis' birthday cake and listen to the Usual Suspects for a bit.
