Or, at least that’s where Lafleche, Saskatchewan is in comparison to where we live in West Central Saskatchewan.  For the last few days I visited my mother, two sisters, a whole bunch of seniors out for a potluck, a coffee row gang at the local “Merchandise on Main” and gas station attendants on the way down and back!

When all is said and done, the days were refreshing.  My wife sent me off with her blessing – in fact, with her insistence.  When life becomes too hectic she knows that I need to just get away.

And away is where I went.  Take a look for Lafleche on your map.  450 people.  Centered in the middle of nowhere.  A small lake nearby.  Fields aplenty.  Town spirit.  And not much else.

But somehow you’ve got to love it!  And that’s just what I did!
