Well, friends, for the first time in what feels like eleventy thousand years, I’m on vacation. I can’t even describe for you how I pine for the ocean when I’m landlocked. I mean, I live Canada – land of a bazillion rivers – and I’m within walking distance to the confluence of two, even!). I’m […]
Hi friends! This week, our musical interlude is brought to you by a scheduled post. I’m on vacay and that includes my technology. Catch y’all on the flipside! And on that note, I give you… Yay!Cation Songs:
There’s lots of gentle (or not) ways to tell time, but no matter when you decide to start, you need a good soundtrack to get you off your duff.
And for that, friends, you’ve come to the right place!
Friends, it’s a Summer Miracle. King Louie had to go to his royal physician’s today for the yearly checkup. He has never, in the 11 years we’ve been visiting this vet (nor the 2+ years we visited the one in our previous side of the province), eaten a treat from the tech, the receptionist, the […]

Sometimes things that must be altered are so big […]
On Thursdays, I drive my gentleman associate to work so that I can go swimming. As soon as we pull into the yard at his work, I switch the radio channel from the morning show he usually listens to on his drive to the CBC. I don’t listen to the CBC very often anymore, since […]
This year it’s 60 years since the Temptations cannonballed into the amazing Motown music movement in Detroit. Otis Williams is the last surviving member of the original Temptations, but even now, 60 years in, The Temptations are still producing and recording original new music. How great is that?
