It was a beautiful night for a flight. Problem was, we were short on crew. A few text rejections, and I ended up telling my kids that they'd be crewing tonight. It's been a few years since they've come along.... Continue reading

Allan popped in for a couple hours yesterday - walking in the door just as we were leaving for Swim Camp. Brian played the good host and made him some scrambled eggs. Mark and I were back home before Al's... Continue reading

Just a few quick days after this year's Balloonfest and St. Ignace happenings, we headed north. On the 4th. It was a treat to get to see the large flag flying from the north tower of the bridge. It only... Continue reading

I made pannukakku again this week - on a day where I was so caught up in projects, all of a sudden I realized I needed something for dinner before the the evening running began. (Also - thanks to great... Continue reading

What I wrote down for my main goal of summer was to keep the balance. So far so good. Mark decided a few days in that he wants to see how many days in a row he can swim. His... Continue reading

We headed down to the Village today. We went early to beat the weather. It was the quietest we've ever seen it on Memorial Day weekend. My guess is that most people chose to go Saturday or Monday for better... Continue reading

This was how Mark and I's Tuesday evening chat started. It was the way he said those two words that had my heart and soul immediately clenched for the worst. I was certain that this was going to be a... Continue reading
