G'day All,
Well another perfect day in Calgary today we are heading out to the badlands and going Dinosaur hunting. The freeways here are huge there is one just about for every street na not really just the road system is great so off to the wild blue yonder we venture, and wow within 20minutes we were into the flat wheat lands of Alberta, we were looking at the stunning scenery the way the fields dipped and ran for miles a brilliant golden yellow in some cases a dirty brown in others and lovely green in another field. We then had a detour to have a look at the infamous Wall mart store wow they are huge and have everything in them except fresh air, so after we bought Cheryl a new printer we set off on the road again.

after about an hr or so we came across this lovely little town of Rosedale and had a wander around the craft stores and eventually ended up at a B&B for lunch, and it was lovely as usual. Back on the road again we discovered the flat earth policy of Canada wow does this place go on an on into the distance and there were some pump jacks on the side of the road in a field these things are were some of Canada's wealth come from its Oil Alberta Oil. The road to Drumheller appeared and off we went as i was chatting inncessantly in Cheryls shell like she said shut up and look at Drumheller and i said where and she said down there and suddenly we dropped into a hole as the road wound its way down into Drumheller, and the bad lands were spectacular we did not get time to wander thru them as we were looking for the museum and dinosaurs. Now this is a must for anyone I don't care if you are 2 or 92 this is an eye opening display and cheryl summed it up its not just the museum u are looking at its the thousands of man hours these people took not only to excavate the bones but also to catalogue them identify them and then put them on display, it was one of the best displays of dinosaurs i have seen mind u I have not seen many but it was great we spent about 2hrs inside there.

We then head for home driving back into the city the cloud formation from a rain storm was great,ok people we are off to Head smashed in Buffalo jump tomorrow see you all then bye for now
Hugs Stewart and Nancy.

Hello All,
This is your oh so happy and miffed Roving reporter Trevor, man have i got news for you we went to see the dinosaurs today. It was a spectacular trip out there the earth was so flat i thought we would drive off the end of it till the idiot told me "no its an illusion and the world is round", well i laughed at that ha ha any fool can see that its flat just look at it no curve in that horizon so the three of us laughed at him an all agreed the idiot title suits him. We stopped off at a palce called rosedale and straight away i thought of aliens and hid behind the idiot all the way scared that some Goverment official will come out and steal me and di-sect me as a alien, Dave the dragon said no u are too squirrel like for them to pinch you and then i remembered it was rosedale in Arizona that it was they stole the aliens.

We then arrived at the dinosaur museum in a place called Drumheller and wow the bad lands were so scary i refused to set foot in them, so off into the museum we went and had a look for the dinosaurs, i was just mucking around with a huge fish by jumping up into its mouth when out of no where this old goat of a squirrel showed up and said "hey kid get out of the display have respect for the people that made this", so i looked at this old fart and said "who the hell are you you old goat", he looked me in the eye and said my name is Cedrick Indiana Jones they some times call me indi jones but i prefer cedrick.

Well i nearly fell out of the mouth and dropped my nuts "wow wow wow" i screamed you are my uncle I am Trevor indiana jones your brothers boy, well he looked me up an down and said "wow you are like the chip off the old nut hey". So we spent the arvo going all over the museum him showing me a thing or two about the dinosaurs, and we had a blast alas i said i was going to have to go as the idiot was heading back to Calgary and he said hm any chance of a lift i am kinda broke i blew all my nuts at the crap game last night so can't get back to Calgary to get my gear as i am off on another expidition down to the great south land called Australia to look for fossils of the legendary giant kangaroo.

I asked him how he was getting there and he said "well um hm well u know I might smuggle my self in the back of a bag or case or sit on the wing am not sure yet", boy was i stoked and said "how would you like to travel to Oz in Business class" and he said "what what how ", I then explained that with such sorrow i was leaving the idiot and going back to mum as she has promised me a trip down to the Carribean and i can wear speedo's instead of this stupid heavy weighty smelly scarf, and Cedrick looked at me an nodded his head and said "oh ok and i thought that smell was because u had trod in something and had a cold and could not smell it". So with trepidation i asked Stewart if he would mind taking Cedrick back with him in my place, he said on one condition he wear that scarf and not that bloody red Ribbon makes him look like he is batting for the other team, I looked on in horror as i said um well er um hm he does well that was when the sky fell in on me and i got miffed with him and said "hey he is my Uncle and i want you to take him to oz as he is a well respected nutologist And is in search of the crystal nut in oz and if you don't take him with you i will never ever grace your door way again". with that he looked me straight in the eye well i did as he picked me up and said "Promise" well i was so heart broken here we were after all this time and he said to me Promise and i was about to cry when he said "I promise to look after him the same way i looked after you in the Camera bag and through all the scanners so tell him to use spf90 sunscreen". So with that i will hand over the scarf to Cedrick tomorrow night when we have dinner with cheryl our last night in Calgary and after we have gotten back from Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump.
Hugs all
Trevor

Parting of the ways ...
Laughing - and crying in my coffee at the same time!! Still, I don't blame you Trevor ... the Caribbean eh. NICE!! But hell, don't dump that smelly old blue thing on Cedric. Does the poor old bugger realise just how smelly you made it on your travels?

And hey, what's he need it for in Oz Land? I thought the standard garb there was a hat with corky things hanging from it!! What's that about anyway? Is it some sort of secret man ritual .. hey look cobbers, I've got 20 corky things, 20 bottles of XXXX in one session!! Strange these Aussies lol

Great, great, great pics as usual ... but very worrying. I'm beginning to think Canada just might earn the title of God's Country after all!!

Have a good one over there :)
