I always liked the song We Can Work it Out. It’s got a cool melody, and a good, positive message. Right? At a superficial glance, maybe. But I discovered something. In case you live under a rock, here is the song I am talking about: Neat melody, hunh? But take a closer listen to theContinue reading “We Can Work It Out? Really?”
I love being able to brainstorm together and share information. The Girl is writing a play, and I am writing a short story. We are each stuck on some details. How fun is it to talk our ideas through with each other, and ask pertinent questions? Well, it’s quite fun, actually. Who knew my daughterContinue reading “One Thing I Love About Having Adult Kids”

Someday the bizarre weather will end…won’t it? We’re playing the Gallery Bistro in Port Moody, March 9th fromContinue reading “And still it snows.…”
What a terrific weekend! It was so great to see old friends, and to meet people who graduated in all 50 of the Phoenix’s years.
Last night we went to a play at the Phoenix Theatre. There were two empty seats on my right, and just before curtain a man came and sat next to me. Throughout the performance (One Man Lord of the Rings, with Charles Ross), I kept my elbows in so as to allow the fellow on myContinue reading “Coincidence”
The Galloping Goose Trail is a lovely place to walk, run or cycle. It used to be a rail line so it’s nice and flat, and for the most part is well away from traffic so it’s quiet and feels pretty safe. Unless you are a pedestrian.
