One last thing...(yes, I know it seems like I go on and on and on).  I am from Calgary and last week most of Southern Alberta experienced extreme flooding.  Many people have lost their homes and many pets are displaced.  I was fortunate not to have any flood-related problems (except for work) and my family is safe.  Calgary is the town I grew up in. Although I just recently moved back, it is a place I have always called home and although so many are pitching in to assist, it saddens me to see that so much more is needed  

 Please consider making a $5 donation to the Canadian Red Cross   If you are a Rogers user, you can contribute $5 by texting ABHELP to 4664.  For other mobile companies, you can text REDCROSS to 30333.  The Calgary Stampede will go on this year as planned starting next Friday (July 5th).  To raise money, the Calgary Stampede is offering up tees that say "Come Hell or High Water", a slogan recently popularized from our current situation.  You might want to check them out as well - Calgary Stampede tees. Thanks for sticking around and hearing me out!
Humbly yours, Christinabean
