Sunday Morning

Sunday morning in Ottawa, at Frank and Kathy’s house. Preparing for tomorrow, when it’s on to Montreal to try a new life. It’s a nervous time, but tremendously exciting.

Frank and I go way back. We got in a lot a trouble, had way too much fun for own good, and now we’re both grandfathers. It’s crazy how time slips away.

I once traded a couple of dozen albums to Frank for his Suzuki 80 motorcycle. I still say he ripped me off.

We partied our youth away, hitchhiked miles together, went through so many highs and lows. When I first moved to Orillia, he and Kathy followed soon after, and I watched Frank rise from a dead-end job to high-level management. He’s done great, better than most of the old crowd, and I’m proud of him. And he did it because he’s a smart son of a bitch.

I need to cut this short. So much to do before tomorrow rolls around, and I’m sorry I don’t have more to offer right now. I’ll get back on track and back to the Habs and such, but for now I hope you understand. At this stage of the game, my life is slightly upside down.

One thing I’m proud of, though. More than five and a half years of blogging, I still haven’t missed a day of putting up at least one post. Even if it’s not much of a post, like today’s.

  3. I hope everything works out in Montreal for you and Luci. Your blog is the best and lots of people love it but sometimes hesitate to comment.

    Here is something you might want to consider. It’s a free plug in which makes it really easy for anyone who has a Twitter account to connect to your blog with just one click. It supposed to be easy to install too.

    Some people don’t like to fill out registration forms, or waiting for confirmation e-mails just to leave a one-time comment. This feature would appeal to them and they may even return and become regulars on your blog.
