Dec 25th 2017:  Another white Christmas - again this year we saw Santa fishing while driving past Cameron Lake on the way to Duncan. Lesley & Rick did the turkey and I brought my new pear wine. Shared the wonderful dinner with Fran & Peter, Evalina & Fred and Christmas crackers.

2017

Dec 24th:  It's snowing! So we took Frosty for a good run because she loves the white stuff. Can you tell she misses the Yukon?

My church doesn't have midnite mass this year but we did celebrate Christmas season with a CWL lunch and St Vincent de Paul supper.

Sept 13th:  Four years ago today I left Ontario behind along with months of elder abuse at the hands of Victor Hutter of Port Elgin and Marilyn Watson of Waterloo.  To this day they are trying to steal my life savings.  I celebrated my escape from them with good Greek food and wine at Orestes.

Feb 4th:  Over two feet of snow has fallen in the last 8 weeks!  So instead of going for walks I'm mostly inside doing some major downsizing.

2017



Jan 26th:  A night of good food and friends at La Bruschetta Restaurant. We celebrated Freddy's last nite before turning "65". Since he has two left feet, Judy lent me her husband Willy for the good songs.

As an offshore racer, Mazurek has the club's deepest keel (over seven feet) and the tallest mast (50') - so we were encouraged to join in with the annual stringing of Christmas lights.
nite reflection

Dec 17th:  Because of the rare cold wave we still have lots of snow in Port Alberni. It was a big surprise to find the -11C temperature had frozen the ocean water around all the boats at our marina in Deep Bay. And made for good reflections!

2016





Dec 10th:  Yesterday we woke up to four inches of fresh snow and took Frosty-Girl to the doggie park - she was not very co-operative! Another six inches this morning makes for a winter wonderland.

Is BLACKMAIL a form of Elder Abuse?

March 16th:  I was warned today my estranged son (Victor Hutter of Ontario Hydro, Port Elgin) intends to continue his harassing phone calls even if I pay his $32,000 blackmail money. Is he insane? I'm not

   2016

hyacinths

March 15th:  My hyacinths came out last week. Camelias too. My fruit trees are budding, but not yet any sign of new leaves in the valley.

   2016
Is BLACKMAIL a form of Elder Abuse?

March 13th:  Well, the lies are exposed. Fred says a new email from Victor retracts his promise yesterday to never contact me. I made arrangements this morning to pay his $32,000 blackmail money to get peace back in my life. But since it's obvious I can't trust him, definitely no cheque going to Port Elgin. To repeat, I don't even want him (or Marilyn or Christine) at my funeral!

   
Is BLACKMAIL a form of Elder Abuse?

March 12th:  Excellent news today. Victor emailed Fred this morning to say if I pay the $32,000 blackmail money, I never have to talk to him or see him again for the rest of my life. I will be free of his harassment by March 31st. Time to go to the lawyer and get this in writing.

eating sprouts already

alfred's birds

Feb 3rd:  Even though the winter rains continue, nothing puts a smile on your face faster than catching an early morning visitor nibbling fresh grass and garden sprouts.

A few minutes later, all I could see was starlings and wondered if Alfred Hitchcock was in town. Each winter day we've been putting out seeds, bread crumbs and diced lard for the jays, flickers, towhees, thrush and juncos. The neighbourhood also has bald eagles, doves, pigeons, crows and gulls.

Jan 9th:  A full house at the Legion tonight to see the Elvis tribute and of course some dancing (sorry no pic's).

   2016
Is BLACKMAIL a form of Elder Abuse?

Feb 2nd 2016:  A few days ago I found out one of my investments is coming due early: $32,000. By coincidence of course, I got a letter from my estranged children's lawyer demanding I pay them $32,000 within two weeks or they will use Ontario court actions to declare me incompetent, force me to return to an mental institution in Ontario and give them control over my money, investments and all my assets.

This is elder abuse. I am being blackmailed by my estranged son (Victor Hutter, formerly of Ontario Hydro, Port Elgin) and my estranged daughter (Marilyn Watson, Wilfred Laurier Univ, Waterloo).

Back in August 2013 the Woodstock police were helping me get a restraining order against them and Christine Hutter Baird. After I moved to The Yukon, the Whitehorse police there referred me to Victim Services to protect myself. Here in BC I met with the RCMP to shield myself from ongoing harassment by Victor.

This included their making a formal claim on my money and investments at my bank. It took over two years to convince the bank to release the freeze on my funds.

It never stops...

I am very thankful the police are helping me but they can't stop the ongoing mischievous court actions which have drained my life savings of tens of thousands of dollars since I revoked Marilyn Watson & Victor Hutter of their power of attorney status two years ago.

new year's day breakfast

Jan 1st:  Happy 2016! This past week was fun and wonderfully delicious with christmas concerts, seafoods including squid, a kangaroo burger, lots of chocolate and homemade cookies, many toasts, then prime rib and dancing on New Year's Eve.

This morning we made eggs benedict with escargot and champagne mimosas. Then all walked down to the beach to watch this year's 70 brave locals participating in the polar bear swim.

   2014
truck

Nov 4th:  After fourteen months I finally have my belongings back! When they heard in February I sold my home on Windermere Crescent, my estranged son & daughter (Victor Hutter of Port Elgin & Marilyn Watson of Waterloo) made their second of four attempts to unilaterally declare me mentally incompetent. They successfully obtained an Owen Sound court order to block me from my Herend china, my clothes, my jewellery, my hair dryer, my furniture, my photo albums, my bible - yes everything ... until I agree to return to Ontario for an capacity examination by some quack social worker in London. They also blocked my intended estate sale and the announced donation of the proceeds to the building fund for my church, Holy Trinity Parish.

As I start the unpacking of my 62 boxes, the task has me teary-eyed and rightfully so. Many good memories. It is a great day and I look forward to starting this new chapter on Vancouver Island.

I finally regained control today. It took me ten months to get a letter from my specialist satisfactory to my bank and reverse the damage of what the police call mischievous activity. I call it elder abuse.

May 30th:  No Spring, we've gone straight from Winter to Summer!  Do you see why I call Yukon home?  Why would anyone want to leave this place?

March 3rd:  Almost no snow (or wind) since New Years Day but there's four feet of ice out there.  Always lots of blue sky on my daily walks!

Feb 22nd:  It's been milder here in the Yukon than in Woodstock these past few weeks. There's been almost no snow since New Years Day but that didn't hurt this week's international ice sculpture display in Whitehorse. After chatting with the artist from China, we went for mama burgers.

moose snow

Feb 20th:  During my first five months here the only wildlife I saw was the marina bald eagles. But this week was amazing. I added two moose, a coyote, a fox and a bunch of ptarmigan to my list!

Feb 15th 2014:  Zoom-Zoom touched the hearts of many in Judas Creek. He was our little athlete and so caught us all by surprise when he took a trip to meet his special buddy Topaz in pet heaven this weekend...

With even more snow on Christmas Day 2013, Frosty and I have almost three feet of powder to play in now...

BTW, I'm calling CNN tomorrow with my new remedy for alzheimers:  Hungarian Golden Pear!

happy

A very Merry Christmas to all my friends, fellow-parishioners & relatives who have been so supportive in my elder abuse battle. I have told my estranged son Victor Hutter of Port Elgin, my estranged daughter Marilyn Watson of Waterloo & my estranged granddaughter Christine Hutter Baird of Penticton BC that I never want to see them or talk to them for the rest of my life...

toilet

Dec 18th:  -37C & two feet of snow - I can handle that ok. But there's stuff going on back in Ontario which is sending all my life plans down the toilet. My son Victor Hutter of Port Elgin & my daughter Marilyn Watson of Waterloo left me to die when I fell down the basement stairs last August and today I find instead of getting an apology, they have asked the Ontario Superior Court to force me to come back to their care. I moved to the Yukon Sept 12th to escape their despicable behaviour and heal. I don't want to live anymore if they are in charge of my well being and money. This is truly elder abuse and I dearly hope many other seniors can learn from my "overly trusting" mistakes.

Dec 9th & 12" of snow. I love it here but getting real excited about a trip to Ontario. I'm planning to tour some Woodstock retirement homes starting Jan 25th.

Forest fire near Alaska border (Sept 12, 2013)

 In August 2013 my son & daughter (Victor Hutter of Port Elgin & Marilyn Watson of Waterloo) left me for dead at the bottom of my basement stairs.  Based on this and other elder abuse I decided to fly to the Yukon to live with my eldest son and his spouse (Fred Hutter & Evalina Zamana) at Marsh Lake Marina.
