In the fall of 2011, my lovely daughter-in- law Ash, a blogger, suggested that I blog about John’s and my Snowbirding trip to the US.

Snowbirding: When Canadians (Usually old, very) get the heck out of Canada via plane, train, automobile (A truck and a fifth wheel for the Smiths) during the winter.

I couldn’t believe that people would be bothered to read about our RV’ing escapades, but began anyway. Once we returned to Comox Valley, Vancouver Island, I fully intended to stop blogging, but couldn’t resist sharing the trials and tribulations of trying to assimilate back into North America: attempting to make friends, surviving family get togethers, enduring doctors’ appointments, fishing, handling Canadian weather…  basically anything that amused us. Hopefully “Honey did you see that?” will entertain you too.
