Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Go Flames Go! (February 2008)

The Flames won their fifth game in a row tonight to get back into a playoff position (technically, that happened last game which they also won.) Anyhow, I came across this old picture of Pace climbing on his grandparents’ air hockey table and thought that was sorta related to tonight’s good news…

Saturday Snap – Playing Giant Jenga? Better Break Out The Protective Gear!

As a precaution, Sasha put on her boots and brother’s skateboarding helmet at New Year’s to play the lifesize Jenga game that Grandpa Dennis made for us. I’d upload the video of the game finally toppling when Grandma Joan tried a difficult move but I jumped pretty high myself when it toppled over! 😉

A Few Post-Christmas Thoughts

I can’t find it now but I have a memory that in December 2011, I posted a screen grab of a weather forecast showing +4 for Dec 24, Dec 25 & Dec. 26.  (Here’s one from around the same time on the same subject.)  At any rate, it’s been brutally cold this week and I’m […]

Merry Christmas!

From our family to yours…

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – When A Garbage Can Is A Tasty Gift (December 2007)

Pace thought so anyhow…

Friday Fun Link – What Screams Upper Middle Class?

[Edit: This post started as a way for me to share what I thought was an interesting Reddit post.  But then I had the idea to use it to talk about whether the reason I found it interesting was because I identified – and was slightly embarrassed by – many of the points it raised? […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – At Least They Didn’t Lose Their House In Transit (Fall 2005)

I was looking through Facebook earlier this week when I saw a story that was almost sounded like the ultimate Halloween prank – a guy came home to his farm just outside Regina to find an abandoned ready-to-move house, still on a trailer but with no semi, no drivers and no note! He posted some […]

10 Random Thoughts After Attending One Night and One Day of #skndpldr Convention #skpoli

I’ve only written a couple things about the current Sask NDP leadership race since the last race ended in 2013. But since Shea and I went to Ryan Meili’s hospitality suite on Friday night (where a few people stroked my ego by asking if I’d be blogging about the race this time) and we also went […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Mexican Beach Wedding (February 2003)

So, for “family movie night” last weekend, Shea and I decided to hook up the video camera we bought back ~2002 but have rarely used lately (“Hey kids, that big boxy thing is what an iPhone used to look like!”) to show the kids our wedding video from Mexico in 2003. Pace watched about five […]

Swedish Death Cleaning

This article says people should start slowing getting rid of unnecessary household objects in their 50’s so as to not burden others when they eventually pass away. But given the amount of junk Shea and I have in our house, I think we should probably start now in our late 30’s (her), early 40’s (me) […]
