Folks drop by now and then, whether visiting from nearby City or far distances. I had the great pleasure of Ben n Sarah dropping by with their Grandma while they were here on holiday from across the border. "Grandma" is a very dear friend. These kids are like two miniature adults. We had wonderful conversation, stories told by all parties and time passed quickly. One of our topics of discussion was of course "The Inukshuk" - you all know that part of me by now - RIGHT! Building one or talking about them always leads to someone taking one home, Eh. As many of you know, I started building mini Inukshuk's from smaller boulders n bits of rock, just for fun. I did have quite a lineup of these small little "Shuks", however; with summer visitors, the numbers have quickly depleted. I certainly do not mind parting with them as the story of the Inukshuk gets passed on again and then - again by the new owners. Sarah and Ben spotted the four remaining and claimed one each, along with the story and the passing of hand to hand. Their job upon arriving home was to place and name them.
Sarah has called her Inukshuk "Sadie" - Nook Shuk", and Ben's Inukshuk is "Pow Wow Sugar Bear". Sadie was their dog and Sugar Bear, their cat. Sadly, both pets passed away this past year, so the kids thought this a great tribute to remember them by. Ben and Sarah, I enjoyed your visit very much and I hope the next time you are up in Canada visiting Grammy, you might stop by again. lol
