It has been a quiet few days recently. Lots of people are away on holiday at this time of year. I have been able to catch up with some paperwork in the office.
On Monday morning I attended the funeral service for Thea Smith the widow of the former Rector of Bury Canon Reg Smith. Bury Parish Church was full with family and friends and I found it an uplifting service. Some people commented that Thea’s death marked the end of an era. Whilst I was not in Bury to witness at first hand the “Smith era” everyone always speaks fondly of the times when Reg and Thea were in the Rectory and Thea will be greatly missed.
Later on Monday, Sue and I were back at the Parish Church but this time in the Church Hall to take CeeCee to his dog training class. Although it is called dog training I always think it is more about training the owners! CeeCee used to go on a Thursday evening to the Puppy Socialisation Class but now having been for six weeks on that course he has moved up to the Beginners Class!. We are now trying to train him to sit still as he finds it very difficult to remain in one position for more than a couple of seconds we have a lot of work to do!
