Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Bull Fight (February 2000)

The other day I wrote about some memories of our first all-inclusive vacation to Mazatlan Mexico in 2000. One thing I didn’t mention but which is a strong memory was our decision to see a bullfight. I’m not sure what I expected but I was surprised by a lot of it – not just that […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Splash Park (July 2014)

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – The Best Haircut Ever?

When I was working for the Writers Guild of Alberta, we ended up getting into a “Who has the worst (and therefore best!) ID photo?” discussion during one pub night. A young writer I knew pulled out his student ID (which, tellingly, he still carried even though he was no longer a student) and I knew […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – My Storytelling Outfit?

I was looking back and realised that the shirt and pants I wore to tell stories to some kids in a summer reading program two years ago… …are the same ones I wore this past summer. (I have no photographic evidence of what I wore for the school visit in summer 2015 but I suspect it […]

Friday Fun Link – What The Mall Looked Like in 1989

  This post is half Throwback Thursday and half Friday Fun Link. It features cassettes!  Acid Wash Jeans!  Big Hair!  And somebody who looks like I looked in 1989 (okay, the pic is 1991) leaning against a brick wall. It’s a pictoral history of the American Mall in 1989!

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – CalgaryPuck.com Scammer

Instead of my usual photo from the past, today’s post is unusual for a couple reasons – it’s a link to a web forum thread and I hadn’t seen it at the time it was originally posted a year ago.  In fact, I had no knowledge of it until recently. But I wanted to share […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Regent Place Branch of @officialrpl Opens in #yqr (August 2012)

After many years without any significant new developments, Regina Public Library has opened three new (or newly renovated) branches in a few short years with one more on the way by next year (and maybe more to come?) While working at our Central branch, I was able to pop over at lunch one day in […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Is That A Big Orange or a Little Banana? (Jan 2012)

I’ve always loved how cute Pace looks in this photo from our family trip to Hawaii in 2012…

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Parkour Hockey?

Only my son would figure out a way to turn a new hockey net into a parkour gym! 😉

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – “I’m Voting Obama” (November 2012)

Happier times… And when Cam Broten beat Ryan Meili by 44 votes out of thousands cast after Ryan was widely expected to win, I learned the hard way that you can never count someone out. I never thought Trump could beat Clinton but I never assumed it was a sure thing either.  In fact, I […]
