The Solstice was last night 11:04 PM here.
So today is first day of summer.
You would not know it here.
Calgary and the near by communities are in a state of emergency.
Rivers have over flowed the banks, and people are being evacuated.
They are telling everyone to stay home if they are not flooded out.

Stay on high ground, Caroline. Sad
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

So glad you posted, Caroline! I heard about the flooding on the news and was concerned about you! We have quite a few other members in Calgary, too. Hope everyone is OK.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I am fine as my home is on higher ground,but they evacuated people living in low lying areas.
Bridges are closed. The military engineers are being brought in too.
I hope all of our Calgary members are okay, too.

No we have not heard from Joanne.
I think her area is safe.

Oh, thanks, Caroline. With the images we've been seeing on the television, that whole situation looks pretty scary!

Debra,

It's been decades since I had a poster of that saying!

Several hippy-looking young people sitting on the steps, in a kind of Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, staring off into space and smiling gently ...

Thanks, guys!

I must be old ... there are dozens of Tee shirts and posters with that name, but none like my favorite old poster from college (early '70s).
