As An Honoured Son Who Enters His Father's House.

HRH Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and his missus HRH Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, were welcomed at Government House last night, in the warm and formal Sto:lo custom, by His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor Steven Point. I was happy to see some old pals at dinner, like Wendy Grant-John and Ed John, both of whom were right proud in the way the special guests were gifted with beautiful robe-blankets and cedar crowns. The prince was given a beautiful talking stick, and the duchess was given a bowl carved in the motif of a wolf, a spirit-animal with which His Honour's family enjoys an ancient affinity. The royals-from-away were treated as well to a song in the old language.

Qualicum scallops, Cowichan Valley venison, good company, and a well-deserved night out for my hardworking wife, Yvette, who was pleased to be seated beside this fine mariner.

But what happened to PC's ears? Either it's the camera's angle or... no, it can't be. Or could it?
