Canada Days 43-49

Canada Days 43-49

So this week, I had John in town. We ended up going out to dinner a lot more than I did with the previous person. This weekend, we went to the Toronto Zoo.

We also tried to go to a laser tag place, but we unable to get in. Guess they don’t want us decimating the children. We did end up playing in Cambridge, but I don’t think John really enjoyed himself. I didn’t exactly go easy on him.

 

Sunday, we went to a Casino as John hadn’t been in a while, much less while he was up here. I didn’t do well, but I never expect to. He actually made a little money, but nothing to quit your job over.

 

Only a few days left. For some reason, I thought that an 8am flight would be a good idea. That means I need to be at the airport 3 hours prior, which means 5am, plus one hour for the drive, so that means leaving at 4am. So get up at 3am, check out of the hotel and head to Toronto. Still it will be nice to be home.

 

When I get home there will be a new set of challenges, but I’ll deal with those when I get there. So to everyone that has missed me for these 50+ days, I’m coming back!

 

I understand that today (Wednesday) it snowed in Denver (though looking at the cameras it seems to have melted). Funny that there is no snow up here, but I suppose we are close to a body of water which might act like a thermal storage device.

Rain rain, please don’t go away

While some might say that rain isn’t a good thing, I personally love it. I spent a good evening on a date walking in the rain and rather enjoyed myself. Rain has never bothered me.

 

However, here is a question I ask most people (admittedly stolen from a Star Trek¬†Episode). I’d love to know what you think!

 

When it rains, do you run from doorway to doorway, trying to stay dry, getting wet all the while? Or do you just accept the fact that it’s raining and walk with dignity?

 

Personally, I do the latter, but what do you do?

Back from Cheyenne Celtic Festival

Boy was it hot this year. Friday wasn’t too bad at first, but it sure got hot quick. Saturday, I was under a tent all day but it was sure hot. Glad I had a camelbak¬†filled with Gatorade. No sunburns though, so that is good. Got to meet my good buddy Brad. Sadly, couldn’t get to Marc this year. Here is to next year.

Snow! Whee!

Ah snow! What a wonderful day. The drive wasn’t too bad. It’s a rather good view from my office window.
