KAPOORS ON THE ROAD
With two trips to Edmonton already planned, one on the July long weekend and one on the September long weekend, another trip on the August long weekend to attend a family reunion was more than Anil was willing to undertake. It’s a lot of driving and he was really looking forward to a quiet time in Victoria where he could play some golf and read plenty of books.
I couldn’t really argue with him but I knew that I had to attend the reunion, especially as I am now the eldest living female grandchild in the line descended from my Walker grandparents (Audrey is the only one left of their six children). This is not a family known for longevity.
I flew to Edmonton on a direct West Jet flight and my sister-in-law Jeong Ae met me at the airport. After picking up David at home, we headed for the Next Act Pub for drinks and chicken wings with my sister Donna and her husband Duncan. We had a great evening catching up on everyone’s summer activities and hearing about the canoe trip David and Duncan had enjoyed that afternoon on the North Saskatchewan River. Audrey wasn’t able to join us but we made plans to meet the next day to buy supplies for the reunion and then drive out to Westlock to kick-start the reunion early.
