Our friend Blaine Albertson lost his battle with cancer yesterday. I couldn't find a picture of Blaine, just a picture of a sign I made for him when he had his counseling business in Granby. Blaine was quite a guy. He had lost both his arms in a farm accident when he was young but that never stopped him. He was an Olympic skier with the disabled team, played pool(with his feet), bowled with a special bowling ball that had a retractable handle that he could throw with his hook and he even played a little golf. He never quit and I'm sure he battled to the end. A great lesson for all of us. I remember a few Christmas parties at Blaine and Nora's at their house in Columbine Lake and of course B.J.(Hershel), the Ethiopian horse. If anyone has any particular memories of Blaine, please share them with us here on the blob.
PS. I usually don't edit my blog after it's been posted but this an exception. Nora sent me a few pictures that I wanted to share with you. Remember that smile!
