Music Monday – “I wish I had carved my bad poetry/Into your back while you were asleep/A little something to remind you of me/A little something for her to hold on to”

I’m fascinated by coincidences and have had a few recently… Went to a housewarming party this weekend and a guy mentions the completely random fact that they ended up sitting next to a previous owner of their Regina home in a bar in Saskatoon, never having met him before! The same housewarming party was hosted […]

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 […]

Friday Fun Link – Indian Head “Chase The Ace” Lottery Goes to Last Card, Local Woman Wins $170,000 Jackpot

It’s not like down east where the jackpots hit $2 million. But my hometown did pretty good going to the last card in their “Chase the Ace” lottery with a jackpot of $170,000. Unfortunately, the winning woman’s name was not Janet Hammond. 😉

Friday Fun Link – Country Corner Donuts (and the Value of Immigrants) #yqr

I was scrolling through Facebook and came across a post by the good folks at Rebellion Brewing talking about a nearby donut shop which they frequent. (I love seeing locally owned businesses supporting each other like this!) That led me to a YouTube video of the donut shop’s owner which reinforced my strong belief that […]

Saturday Snap – Our Seasonal Site Favourite Memories

It’s a silly thing but I sort of felt ripped off that, even after many provincial parks had a fire ban all year, the one we ended up at only implemented a fire ban for the last long weekend of the summer. We still had fun shoving some red Christmas lights into our fire pit […]

Saturday Snap – Like Mother, Like Daughter #ndpldr @thejagmeetsingh

Shea’s mom meets with Jagmeet Singh in Weyburn (home of Tommy Douglas) Saturday afternoon… Shea meets Jagmeet Singh in Regina Saturday evening…

Music Monday – “Put out my lawn chair/Watching the sun arising/Evening comes/I’m watching the sun go down” #saskatchewan #sask #camping #provincialparks #summer #echovalley #fortquappelle

I’ve finally had time to go through all the pictures (2000+!) that I took over the course of the entire summer and winnow them down to a handful of favourites. That’s still more than most people should have to sit through at a single sitting so what I did was create a long slideshow with […]

10 Reasons Why Taking A Seasonal Camp Site Led To Me Having One of the Best Summers of My Life!

It could’ve easily gone the other way. If we’d had a rainy summer, if we had neighbours who played loud rap until all hours of the morning (nothing against rap – just not my idea of campground music), if we hadn’t been able to get out to our site as much as we did, if […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Bridge Between Katepwa and Mission Lakes (Aug 30, 2009)

I’ve always liked this photo taken from a boat in the channel between Katepwa and Mission Lakes in the Qu’Appelle Valley. Not bad for an iPhone 3G camera…
