The Millennial Toilet

   Home. Our Atlantic land journey has been completed. A trip that saw Honey and I drive a little more the 12,000kms, over 30 days. An epic journey, for both of us. When you add distance, to number of days of travel, then divide that by the number of times I got lost, then multiply […]

   The road trip was the solution to an awkward dilemma. When they were first informed that I was ill, my brother and his family from Ottawa, wanted to come out and see me immediately. My initial response was “no way.” I looked like crap and felt worse. I didn’t want to see anyone at […]

If I Knew Then

   You know those questions people often ask? If you had to do it over, would you change anything? I have learned that wisdom does indeed come with age and experience. Too bad we couldn’t get a little wisdom in our early 20s. The world is changing, and in the last number of years it […]

Credit Card Shuffle

,

   No matter how old you get, your kids are always your kids. When your child’s life goes off the rail, so does yours. It doesn’t matter who you are, just look at Queen Elisabeth and the whole Andrew thing, if you are a parent your life is forever intertwined with those that you helped […]

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

   The one thing I can honestly say, is that a massive dose of chemo medicine is everything advertised and then some. From one day to the next you don’t know what to expect. Wake up feeling good and you’re puking by lunch, or wake up feeling like crap and puke first thing, then go […]

The Covid Connection (Snow Job Pt 2)

I guess it was inevitable after two years that I would finally have contact with the dreaded virus, COVID-19. It wasn’t, the I had contact with a guy that may have had contact with a guy that had definitely been in contact with some one that had the coronavirus, sort of contact.  No, this was […]

Snow Job

It snowed last week. Two different weather systems left almost two feet of snow on my walk and driveway in the course of 72-hours. This might not seem to be much to some, but when you need to move it with a shovel, it’s a mountain of snow! This winter has brought us a total […]

My COVID Christmas

It’s Christmas and all around the world people are celebrating the holiday season. This year it is a far different experience. We are not getting together in large family clusters, sitting and gorging ourselves on roast beast and ant-acids. This year is about Zoom calls, text messages and e-mails with loving sentiments. It’s virtual hugging, […]

It's An Overload

I find there is too much going on in the world and that managing to have one complete thought, before another one pops into my head, is all but impossible. It would probably help if I didn’t spend time watching and reading the news. Mind you if I didn’t, I might never have known about […]

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 […]
