Dumpster Diving

You know it’s time for a change, when you find yourself standing in disbelief at something that you have just witnessed. Worst yet, something that you have just done. I had me one of those moments a few weeks ago… It was 5am and I had just finished stocking one of my customers and am […]

Currently Updating... Please Do Not Turn Off Your Life

I realize that every person on this planet has been affected by COVID-19, even the hermits. The disruption it has caused, to routines and life plans, is universal. But I can only tell you about me. What has this pandemic done to me? Time hasn’t stopped, and the calendar on the wall tells me that […]

Who Are These People?

Little hands… Little feet… Little voices… All talking at the same time. No, this is not the start of the new school year; this is my living room this week. The ‘Caravan of Chaos’ has arrived at my door. With a Phase 3 implementation across Western Canada, a Covid-roadtrip is now allowed by the powers […]

Warning... Relaxing Restrictions Could Lead To Hugging

Spring/Summer in my world has arrived. I have to include both seasons together because where I live, they are both so short in time that they basically comprise only one season, ‘Spummer’.

A Decade of Difference

Day one, 2020. 1970 is now half a century ago, and I for one must say, time flies when you’re having fun. I usually write a recap of the year that had just passed but since this is the change in decades, I thought it would be worth looking back at the last decade of […]

The Holiday season is always stressful. I think it is for everyone, even those that don’t work in the retail sector. There is stuff you have to do, and a time limit in which to get it done. The holidays are the same for almost everyone around here. We’re all working the same schedule. We […]

Anatomically Corrected

I have had different injuries throughout my life. Knees, shoulders, arms, hands and my back have all had something or other happen to them. All of these injuries healed over time, with very little residual effects short of a couple of scars. I have been on crutches a couple of times but have never required […]

Book of the Month Club

Welcome to the book of the month club. It is not called that because there is a book coming every month, it is called that because it is how long it took me to write it. It took me two weeks to live it and two and a half to write it. Once I started […]

No Hay Problema

,

Things in the world of booking agent have been hectic over the summer. Who knew having a hotel on a deserted stretch of beach on a Caribbean island could be so appealing… in summer! But why not? In the heat of summer everyone wants to head to the water. Crowded beaches suck just as much […]
