Wow!!! Monday March 15 2010 was the 100th birthday of Elizabeth Priscilla Brandson (nee Layng), Larry's mother, and my mother-in-law. It's hard to imagine, and the more I say 'one hundred years', the harder it is to believe.
The family gathered on Sunday, the day before, for a celebration. Four generations of family, and a few friends, came to visit and have some birthday cake.
'Bessie', as she was fondly known, as a baby. She was born in the rural municipality of North Cypress, in south central Manitoba, March 15 1910
With her four sons, 1951
Peace Portal Lodge 2010, White Rock.
(Well technically on the Surrey side of 16th Ave, but since she had lived in White Rock for the previous 46 years, that's how we'll leave it)
My original blurb is below. This blog was started to show some of our customers where their food is coming from. But...since there aren't actually many of our customers reading it, and just because I wanted to... this blog now is all over the map. Lots of dog stuff, places we go, things we do, and of course gardening and animal stuff, and whatever else I feel like rambling on about.
We live on a 10 acre hobby farm in the Bradner area of Abbotsford, British Columbia. We are vendors at the White Rock Farmer's market, selling a large variety of items. These include jams, jellies and marmalades, sewn items, free range eggs, cut flower bouquets, fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit. We grow organically, although are not certified organic. As of summer 2017, our hobby farm houses 2 humans, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 ewe, and 80-99 laying hens.
