Adrian and Jo

Adrian and Jo are a young professional couple from a small town near Oxford in the UK. I won’t tell you the name of the town (because I can’t remember) but suffice to say, it’s the kind of place where both town limit sings are on the same stick.

The point of this entry is that Adrian and Jo stayed with us for about a week and I find it of singular interest how so many prople can visit with us for such a short time and yet become such good friends.

They left for Western Canada yesterday to visit with relatives in British Columbia and spend Christmas there. Jo’s brother emigrated to Kelowna, B.C. a while back and loves it. She has visited him there before so they’re not exactly strangers to Canada.

Adrian is an Engineer. At first I thought he had something to do with Aerospace; but, it turns out he works for the Mars chocolate bar company – an understandable mistake on my part.

I hope that they read this blog so they’ll know how well liked they both were and how much they’ll be missed.

A lot of people remark that the Canadiana “feels like home”. The reason?: Well, we like to think that here at the Canadiana there are very few “strangers”, merely friends who have yet to meet.

Just ask Adrian and Jo.
