What’s Going On?

I’ve been too lazy to post about stupid crap I find on the net (J-Walk tends to grab most of it anyway), and not motivated to post about personal occurrences, although here’s a summary of recent events:

  • Wally has diarrhea, which he’s been letting us know about by the mess he leaves every morning on the living room carpet the past few nights.
  • My wife and I started Tai Chi Chaun classes.
  • Someone with the “Kelsey” last name from Newfoundland contacted me about the Kelsey painting I posted about – another artist!
  • I recently used about 1300 Air Miles.
  • My motorcycle doesn’t work again. Some electrical problem I can’t figure out, so it’s stuck in my garage collecting dust.
  • I used a GPS for the first time recently. Nice gimic but not practical for me.
  • My wife quit her baking job at Tim Hortons after working there for a year, getting up 3:30am every morning to work a couple hours everyday.
  • Caitlyn, my seven year old daughter, is taking piano lessons, which she finds boring.
  • I’m THIS close to buying an original painting, preferably from a local artist, but some of Jean’s tempt me.
  • Iain (my three year old son) didn’t want to go to pre-school today because he doesn’t like timeout. This is the first we heard about it.
  • I started playing chess a lot more, which I was once very good at in my teenage years. I posted about this, though.
  • Gratz to Sedition.com on its 10th year aniversary! Too lazy to comment on his site about it even.

Besides Tommyboy, anyone interested in me posting like a diary? Which reminds me: Oh Me Nerves! posted about that topic recently, reminding me how it’s interesting to look at past personal posts.

Phillip & Jody Cairns Photography

Jody and I have received genuine, no-fooling, legit photo credits, all of them on the Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Website.

fogo island newfoundland Mine appears in the Arts and Economy article.

Jody has two photo credits. The first is in the article on Rural Depopulation in Newfoundland and Labrador; the second appears in Depopulation Impacts.

All the articles are written by Jenny Higgins.

We’re famous.
