Nearing the end of 2008

Posted by on Monday, December 29, 2008 at 10:14 am

2008 is ending quickly. This year we saw rocketing gas prices, a slow down in the economy, the reelection of the Canadian Prime Minister and the election of a new US President.

With 2009 only days away, we are busy preparing for our sport show circuit. Our shows start in Minneapolis this weekend and then we move to the Chicago more.


What do you think?

Last week we were completely out of our element. We visited our youngest daughter in Toronto since she would be unable to come home for Christmas. Not only that but her champagne (23rd on the 23rd) birthday is Tues, which we would miss also.

Toronto may be in the same province as Ignace but it is a world away. 12 more.


Made it home

We made it home on Friday evening just barely getting getting out of Toronto before things got really set back at the airport with the “big storm”. I am glad many of the West Jet pilots are old bush pilots.

Now to Kenora for a few days to visit Mike and Care.Then we’ll be home for Christmas.

We’ll be more.


Flight Delays

Karen and I are sitting/waiting at the airport in Toronto after visiting our daughter Joanna – pre Christmas.

The weather forcasters are calling the winter storm today, “snow-megaddon”. Well, temps just below freezing and a few inches of snow doesn’t really constitute an emergency where we live, but when you share it with a few million people, I guess things more.

Take a break

According to the dictionary a “vacation” is “a period of suspension of work, study, or other activity, usually used for rest, recreation, or travel”. Take note of the suspension of work part.

We live in world of connectivity. We some how feel we must be in touch. With what? Stress is built upon feeling important enough that we can’t be more.
