What is an August Unforgettable life newsletter if it doesn't include a family selfie boating at the lake? In hindsight, I wish we staged the photo just a little better to ensure our youngest Sam, who was surfing the wake behind the boat, was in full frame at the moment the picture was captured.
I have a funny story to tell. My youngest son commented on our Instagram post after my personal monthly column was posted last month. What I found humorous and intelligent all at the same time was that he made the comment in third person and said “what about Sam, you haven’t mentioned anything about him but gave an update for everybody else in the family”.
In this photo with Maddy and I is the H.M.C.S Haida, a Tribal-class destroyer that served in the Royal Canadian Navy from 1943 to 1963. What you probably don’t know about me is that I was the lead character in a documentary made about the ship when I was 14 years old.
