    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Dear Amanda, I know that tomorrow is Canadian Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving – here’s my chocolate pecan pie. I’m sorry you’re not here to have a bite of its ooey-gooey chocolatey-ness. I scrolled back through my photos and the most recent selfie of the two of us in my gallery was Halloween of 2019. It has […]

  • Canadian Fall

    Every day is the same…

    How many people feel like this currently? Every day is the same. The pandemic is currently “better” in Ontario, Canada but it still is here. Every day on the news it continues and every day tells us it might be back with a vengeance tomorrow. So each day I go through the motions. I try […]

    Adventures in the Atlanta Airport

    Dear Amanda, The very day that I received my second vaccine dose I booked a trip to visit my sister in Washington DC. I hadn’t seen her, or her baby son, since their road trip down here in December. As close as I am to my sister, it’s just been slaying me that I haven’t […]

  • Travel again soon. SOON!

    Man…things have been so crazy lately. There is a never-ending sea of crisis. I’ve even been to the hospital a few times. But finally, the Canadian and American border is opening!

May the 4th be with us all as he gets behind the driver’s wheel. He’s grown several inches since you last saw him. I guess that’s the nature of teenage boys. […]

  • It’s April… Spring Again… And we Continue…

    Dear Stephanie, It’s been a while. Things seem never-ending during the pandemic that never ends. Currently, Canada is not vaccinating people anywhere near my age, so we continue with another lock-down and stay-at-home order. People are burnt out and tired of it all. I have never been this long without traveling and seeing other people […]

    How Am I Staying Busy?

    Dear Amanda, Holy smokes did life dial up to 10. How am I staying busy? I dunno I might be slowly losing my mind. I went back to work and am now working from home. My cat is stalking me. He looks cute in this photo. He’s lying. I know, I know. He looks super […]

  • So how are you keeping busy?

    Dear Stephanie… It is that time of year once again. It is starting to get cold in Canada and this is generally the time I would be getting ready to head south or elsewhere where the leaves never leave the trees. I really don’t like Canadian winters. With the world being as crazy as it […]
