The Yellow Shirt has a number of meanings - for the Survivors, the joy of cancer survivor-ship, being alive and celebrating the survivor-ship of others who have defeated the disease; for current patients, the hope of successful treatment and to wear a yellow shirt the following year; for the families and friends, the gratitude owed to them for the perhaps more difficult burden they bear, because unlike the patient, they are not afforded the right to have a lousy day. The fourth meaning, for those we have lost to the disease - they are not there to don the yellow shirts, we can only walk in memory, remember, honour and celebrate their lives past.
The spirit of Love and Hope feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above it's strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility; for it thinks all things lawful for itself, and all things possible.

I had gone to spend a few days on the beautiful Belleisle Bay, just the other side of Hampton, NB
My friend and her husband (Donna & Bill) have a lovely cottage there. There is olde home charm, and beauty all around us.
OOOPS, NO.....we went to a field!

|Yah, my Dad taught me some basic carpentry skills too.....|
Mother Nature was most kind and touched our yards with beautiful spring flowers, only to be crumpled by our hail storm. Other Maritimers that may have started early plants and endured a surprisingly last minute late snow storm, of great proportion.

The Victoria Day long weekend this year has meant shovels, icy roads and a record-breaking snowfall for many residents of central Newfoundland in Atlantic Canada.
In Gander, Newfoundland, 58 centimeters (23 inches) of snow fell between Saturday morning and Sunday night, with peak snowfall on Saturday evening.
Environment Canada meteorologists said the snowfall blew away all previous records - & how about that for your long weekend in May - when many Atlantic Canadians are planning their first long weekend of camping adventures, the weekend many move into their summer places, the first long weekend for many to plan that first fishing trip.
So, those of you that are feeling the heat of the sun in your area, please send some rays to warm up Atlantic Canada.

Citizens in our small town caught outside when the rain and ice pellets fell, quickly ran for shelter in shops, front porches, etc. No severe damage done, bit of flooding, some dented cars and a few sore heads for those caught running to shelter.
The wind howled, the hail plummeted with great force; the thunder roared and "The rain came tumbling down"; with even greater force.
Being the modern TECH society we are today, I grabbed my iPhone and took photos and videos.
Saw a FLASH SEVERE WEATHER WARNING from just across the border in Calais, Maine - and always pay attention to NOAA Weather Service; as this area tends to get the Boston - Calais line of weather.As quickly as it all came, 11 minutes later was gone, leaving debris from trees and large pools of water everywhere - it was like someone turned off all the wacky weather taps. According to our Meteorologist's, we will experience more of these swift weather changes, and heat waves before summer is even here!
