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 […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Family Photo at Regina Public Library (June 2011)

When we did a family photo shoot in 2011, we decided to use downtown as our location which naturally led us to include a few shots around my employer, Regina Public Library.

The People in Your Neighbourhood

I’d been a patron of Regent Place library in Regina long before I ever applied for library school, let alone before I applied to be the Branch Head there. So when I went in for the interview, I laid it on pretty thick about how I was involved in the community, how my son went to […]

Walking Tours on YouTube

Shea recently told me a great tip – YouTube has numerous walking/running tours that you can put on your TV while using your treadmill. What a great way to make time on the treadmill more interesting!

Happy 14th Anniversary, Shea!

It’s a bit awkward to transition from seven days of George Carlin “Seven Words You Can’t Say on Television” posts to “Anniversary Wishes” but this blog is nothing if not diverse! So Happy 14th Anniversary to the best wife I’ve ever had! 😉

Music Monday – “South of the border, down Mexico way/That’s where I fell in love, when the stars above came out to play/And now as I wander, my thoughts ever stray/South of the border, down Mexico way” (And Our Wedding Slideshow!)

Shea likes to joke that I was the “best bride ever” when we were planning our destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera back in 2002. And it’s true – my natural “anal retentive” librarian personality shone through as I pretty much handled all the arrangements from flowers to writing the entire script for the ceremony […]

Happy Birthday Shea!

Have a great day!  Love ya!

10 Random Memories From My First All-Inclusive Vacation, Oceano Palace, Mazatlan, Mexico

I’m a fairly obsessive journal keeper (less so since I’ve become an obsessive blogger) 😉 so, as we get closer to another all-inclusive adventure, it was fun to go back and re-read my entries from when Shea and I went to our first all-inclusive – the Oceano Palace in Mazatlan in 2000. (I’m also an […]

Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds – Three Concerts on the Beach @davetimmexico

It was about a week before we left for the Dominican Republic in February 2015 that I stumbled upon the news that Ringo Starr was performing at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, not far from the resort we’d be at. After some quick discussion, I ended up buying tickets for my parents, Shea and […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Another Use For a Multi-Purpose Tool? (July 2016)

Shea demonstrates another use for the multi-purpose tool she got me for my birthday last year…
