The Merry Good Son

So we had a lovely Xmas day after Robbie (yes, the dog) woke us up at 4am, I made him wait until 5am and finally got up and took him outside. Robbie really loves Xmas morning presents so he tends to wake us up early (perhaps we shouldn't tell him which night Santa is coming).

We had just finished our Turkey supper and were relaxing on our computers when I saw headlights go out up the hill but parking lights could still be seen. Odd. Anyway didn't think too much of it because Mark sometimes sits on the hill texting or whatever before coming down to his trailer.

The truck drove down the hill and we assumed it was Mark but then it parked backwards in the parking lot. (Military training) Brad was going out to see what was going on and I told him to leave it because its not our business for another week. He went anyway and when he saw the silhouette of the driver, he knew -but I was still inside blissfully unaware, watching a video.

He snuck up on this intruder and surprised him. They both then snuck into the RV and surprised me!! Was not expecting to see my oldest son, especially on Xmas day!

Robbie absolutely LOVES Lee and the two of them always have a great time together.
(Lee doesn't like having his picture taken)

We had a great visit last night catching up but Lee was tired after the trip so we had an early night. This morning we went for breakfast to The TreeHouse Cafe but it was closed, as was Salt Spring Inn so we drove over to Harbour House Hotel and they had a buffet that was exceptionally good. Only one cook, one waitress (that we saw) and they were working very hard to keep up with the demand.

Lee and Brad at the buffet

The place wasn't packed but it was very very busy, there are still a lot of people without power on the island and this was the only place open that we saw when driving around.

Lee is due at his Father's for Turkey supper tonight (also in BC) so he was only in for the night. A long way to go just for one night but I guess this is how much he loves his Mummy! LOL 

He has just left in order to make it to the noon ferry back to the mainland.

What a good son to come all this way from Saskatchewan to surprise us! xxxoooxxx


  1. Awww that was nice of him. How many children do you have?

    1. Merry Christmas FG! I have two sons, no daughters (blessing I reckon) and they are both my Good Son's. Its a thing I started calling each of them many many years ago... It was a whopping Christmas surprise, absolutely love my boys they are (finally) both fantastic men!

  2. Such a lovely Christmas surprise. Wishing you all the very best in 2019.

    1. Thank you Contessa, hope you had a lovely Christmas and have great plans for a fantastic New Year.

  3. How wonderful for Lee to come and surprise you. I bet that was your best "present" from Christmas.

    1. Bar none. Guess we'll have to go to him next year...
