April 26 Kathy has  made her own sign to thank the Front Line Workers during the  Covid 19 Pandemic. In May we visited the Mandaumin Woods Nature Reserve. After our walk through the woods we found our car with a dead battery, and since it was on Good Friday fortunately CAA came to our rescue. But, unfortunately because of Covid we could not get ride with the driver so here we were stranded in the woods, far from home. Thank God with our cellphone we were able to get a taxi driver to come to our rescue. An expensive taxi ride followed by a big tip.  :-)
