Some Random Thoughts From #rcmpmusicalride in #yqr

A group of eight of us were very excited to take in the “Canada 150” Edition of the RCMP Musical Ride last night, not least of which because Shea’s cousin’s husband is an RCMP member who has been training for the last couple years so that he could be riding in the Tattoo for this […]

10 Advantages of a Seasonal Camping Site

I didn’t post over the weekend as we were camping at our seasonal site at Echo Valley Provincial Park. We’ve had our camper for three years (two full summers since we bought it in August of our first year) but so far, we’ve only done quick hit trips – a week here, a weekend there. Shea’s folks […]

Happy 10th Birthday Pace!

Hard to believe this guy is in double digits!

Saturday Snap – #saveSKLibraries Panel at #saskLA2017 Conference

It was a fairly last minute decision but after debating back and forth for the past couple months, after library funding was restored, I decided to apply to attend the Sask Library Association conference in Waskesiu. (I know the conference location was probably picked 18-24 months ago but the optics of having a conference at a […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Sask Library Association Conference (somewhere between 1997-2001) #saskla2017

I’m at the Saskatchewan Library Association Conference in Waskesiu right now. It’s the 75th Anniversary of SLA and as part of the anniversary celebration, they have a photo album which includes this photo of me on a panel discussion at a previous SLA. This would have been when I worked for the Sask Publishers Group. […]

Thumbs Up From Two Cute Kids

Being “all libraries, all the time” for the past month has meant there’s been a serious lack of cute kid pictures on this blog. Here’s a couple to rectify the situation…

Saturday Snap – Me at @saskbookawards 2017 (and Some Random Thoughts On The Awards, Life, and How I Got There)

So, I once again attended the Sask Book Awards tonight. Here are a few random thoughts… Was flying solo tonight as Shea decided to take advantage of the great weather and her parents (her mom works shift work) being off to take the kids and go to Weyburn for the weekend. Yes, I wore an olive […]

Throwback Thursday – SILS Launch Preparations (Feb 2010) #skpoli #SavedSKLibraries #saveSKLibraries

Like I said yesterday, I’ll probably stop tagging every post with #skpoli #saveSKLibraries fairly soon.  But in the meantime, I have ideas for at least a couple more posts in the hopper though. For instance, I came across this picture and thought it was a nice “full circle” picture – a shot from February 2010 […]

A Timeline of Major Events in the #SaveSKLibraries Campaign #skpoli #SAVEDSKLibraries

Hopefully Saskatchewan’s public libraries will never have to go through what we just went through over the past month ever again. But I thought I’d try to document some of the various events and happenings during the multi-pronged resistance to the massive library cuts in the 2017 Saskatchewan budget (which ultimately led to the cuts being reversed […]

Saturday Snap – Good-Bye Fence, Hello Fence!

Spent most of last night and today getting ready to build a new fence – loading the neighbour’s truck with the remains of the old fence (plus some extra junk we each had to get rid of), a couple trips to the dump, a trip to Home Depot, loading and unloading all the various supplies. […]
