Friday Morning Coffee Club meets at The Ranch for gourmet breakfast prepared by Chef Justin

Jim, Chef Justin, Mark
The Friday Morning Coffee Club, aka FMCC, enjoyed a gourmet breakfast at The Ranch prepared by Chef Justin Cleland on a beautiful Winter day.

Chef Justin was ably assisted by Jim Roberts (his uncle), and Mark Spence-Vinge in preparing the meal enjoyed immensely by FMCC who were on hand to enjoy their second visit to The Ranch. Thanks Jim.

Although on this visit, we ate around the big table in the ranch house, it seems to me there is something about the mountain air that really contributes to the fellowship, friendship and laughter that abounds at all FMCC meets, but maybe a bit more at the ranch!

A special highlight was the presentation of a birthday cake and a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday" to Brian Passy.

As the old saying goes "... and a great time was had by all!"

A special thanks to Chef Justin, who spent countless hours planning and preparing the meal featuring Eggs Benedict. We also wish Justin all the best as he launches his career in music.

And before anyone asks, no, I did not try bronc busting on this trip.

It has also amazed me the number of people who have stopped me on my walkabouts in the past week and asked "What are you guys going to do now?" or "Have you found a new place yet?"

Of course, they are referring to the loss of our Friday morning home for almost two years at the Starbucks in the Cranbrook Target store. Starbucks is closed now and the store will be  soon.

Thanks for asking

As I write, no we haven't but if anyone would like to offer suggestions, please email me at mj.morris@live,ca.

 For the moment we will meet at "temporary" locations.

Joel Vinge sent more pics and added to the story. Thanks Joel.
 
Ordinarily I would have waited but I wanted to post before leaving for Florida on a recruiting mission for  The Ranch and FMCC,  More later on that11
 
 I am updating from Calgary before boarding my flight. My new mini computer is great -- next challenge my phone!!!
