I've never been to Saskatchewan.
In the sixth grade when we studied the Canadian provinces, my friend Colleen and I picked Saskatchewan. We had to research the natural resources, history, economy and the people. We also had to create a poster to go along with our presentation. I should point out that Colleen was really good at art. We lost touch after she moved to Virginia the following year, but when we met up again after college, she was already on her way to becoming a famous artist. Now she lives on the East Coast and has real art exhibits.
But back to Saskatchewan. Colleen had the great idea to make our poster 3D. We cut out and rolled up tiny paper hay bales and oil derricks. It did look really cool when we were finished and that was probably the last time I thought about Saskatchewan. Until this summer.
We're spending a week at a dude ranch in Montana, close to the Canadian border. I have big plans to ride my trusty steed right on over to Saskatchewan. Unfortunately since we'll be staying in the Northwest corner of Montana, closer to British Columbia and Alberta, my plans to visit Saskatchewan will have to wait.
One of my favorite parts of this job is hearing about other folks' summer adventures. Let me know if you, or someone you know is hiking the Continental Divide or canoeing down the mighty Mississippi. Or maybe you're staying home and building a submarine or writing a novel. Whatever it is, drop me a line and let me know how things turned out.
Anybody going to Saskatchewan?
