That's Life - May 5, 2021

Sunday, May 9 is Mother’s Day.

More phone calls are made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year. These holiday chats with mom often cause phone traffic to spike as much as 37 percent.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic we are all limited with the activities we can involve mom in. The family dinner at your favourite restaurant is out unless they have a patio and the weather is ideal for such an event. We’ll see what the province and AHS are planning for new, tougher restrictions as new COVID daily numbers continue to increase.

If you’re thinking about serving your mother or your wife breakfast in bed you should check with her first to see if she actually likes it. My experience results in spillage and toast crumbs. This is not a good way to start the day.

Anyway, be sure and do something extra special for your mom, your grandma and your wife. And most importantly, remind your adult sons what a special day it is. You might have to remind them a couple of times. I’m assuming girls are better at this sort of thing. We had boys so I don’t know, other than my sisters are well organized concerning special days.

Just make sure mom gets a heap of love and attention this Sunday. Hey, how about keeping that love going each and every day?

If you missed the Anti-Theft Licence Plate event in Three Hills and Delburne you will have another opportunity to participate.

Three Hills RCMP and Three Hills Victim Services will be at the Trochu Community Centre parking lot on Tuesday, May 12 from 3-5pm. This event also serves as a fundraiser for the Victim Services Program. The Anti-Theft bolt is free but donations to Victim Services are graciously accepted.

Now remember, Victim Services has not been able to hold their annual Steak and Lobster fundraiser for two years now. To date, they have collected about $3,000 at the Three Hills and Delburne Licence Plate Events. The province of Alberta cut their funding to $1,000 per year and that doesn’t even cover their training expenses.

If you’re attending the Trochu License Plate event dig deep and help Victim Services. If you just want to help Victim Services you can call Victim Services Program Manager Carolyn Kung at 403-443-9401 to make a donation.

That’s Life.
