Here I am!

Oh!, this is a picture of the very fine cat who used to live with me and let me look after her! Kitty

Her name was Sarabi. She was a fine kitty. Its true that kittys leave paw prints on your heart! My "new" kitty is curious, sometimes annoying, and in some ways an overgrown kitten. Her great goal in life is to flush the toilet as many times a day as possible!! Her name is Puddy Tat. She has broken many things and one of her next most favourite things is to roll stuff (like apples) off of the table and tip over full bottles of diet coke! She loves to walk over my desk and push buttons on the power bar, the fax machine and to step on the button for the speaker phone! Here she is. Puddy

TIP OF THE DAY: If you are just looking for sermon material go to Sermon Pageand then return when you have MORE time. OK!

    Hi! Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ!

    Early Life

    I am a native of (Canada)

    Since 1997 the Island has been connected to the rest of Canada by The Confederation Bridge which, at 12.9 km is the "longest multi-span bridge over ice covered waters" in the world. I even walked from one end of the bridge to the other in 1997. It's hard to believe but this year is it's 17 th Anniversary!

    If you look at the background to this page you will see what people used to do in the winter to travel back and forth between PEI and NEw Brunswick. These 'ice boats' were replaced with ice breakers. The first one was called 'The Northern Light' and it was WOODEN. I kid you not! The boats were often tied up in windy weather. The bridge is often closed to tractor trailers and other 'high sided' vehicles but has been totally closed only once or twice due to weather, as far as I know! Some days that is IS open you wouldn't want to be driving on the roads! It DOES get pretty windy out there in winter!!!!


    I am a graduate of Charlottetown Rural High School in Charlottetown PEI and (Class of '84), in Sackville N.B. The Alma Mater of many many Rhodes Scholars and winner many times over of the Maclean's Poll on universities. It's small and it's a great place to study. I have also graduated from in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and its even smaller than Mount Allison.

    May the class of '87 live forever!!!!! Was it really

    that long

    ago? Good Grief!

    Here we are! Class

    Location and Churches

    In September of 2014 I began ministry at the Hantsport Pastoral Charge where I serve Avon United Church. It was created when St James and Junipeer Grove Untied Churches amalgamated to form one congregation. It is located at the north east end of the beautiful Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia. It is a Pastoral Charge in Valley Presbytery and The United Church of Canada. of the Maritime Conference .

    We worship at 10:00 and are located at 17 Prince St. Hantsport. Come join us!

    I try to have my sermon ready by Saturday evening but as a person in pastoral ministry sometimes it is not written that early! It has been so long since I had a 'normal week' I wouldn't know what to do with it!

    If you have suggestions for my web pages please email me.

    My hobbies are cross stitch, photography, reading, scrapbooking, surfing (the internet) and well, ministers don't get much time for hobbies.

    There is a long story behind my email address. Basically, my one and only much younger sister calls me 'Sueboo', which is the 'most printable' of the things she calls or has called me!!!

    kidsThis is a really nice picture of my nephews and niece. The two older ones live live here on PEI on the family farm with their parents and next door to their grandmother and an aunt and uncle. The youngest is #48 with the Victoriaville Tigre, a team in the "Q". This picture was taken at their cousin's wedding.
