He’s a helicopter parent, she thinks he’s chirping “CAT” far too often. He says, “You can’t be too careful these days. Danger sits licking it’s paws in every alley and breezeway in the city”. We’ll start taking calls shortly after the show begins.


Window wraps …

Recently overheard conversation between me and myself.

Me: Completely sick of winter
Self: Yes, we know, we know already.

Me: So I was thinking …
Self: Uh oh.

Me: I wonder if you could get special wraps for the living room windows. You know the kind that buses and cars have? They could be pictures of spring, green grass, birds, the sun …
Self: ya … so?

Me: So, you put them on the windows and when you look out, you only see spring.
Self: But what if you want to go outside? The cold will break your illusion.

Me: Well there’s the genius of the plan. You don’t go out. You take vacation and stay in with the heat cranked. It’s a win/win.
Self: sigh …

Hiding under rocks isn’t as much fun as I thought …


It’s been quite some time since my last post. The rock I’ve been hiding under got a little cramped and cold.

It’s been hard to summon any interest in anything lately due to this seemingly endless winter. I was so very tired of writing about the cold.

So today, I did something I don’t normally do. I stopped during a training run to take a picture of my country’s flag. The sun was shining just so and our flag was glowing.

I am proud to be Canadian.
I love my country.
I love my city.
