Open Mic Saturday


I’m off to Kansas City today for a first communion for my great-niece Abby.  I don’t think I’ll have much time to blog while away.  I have a few thing set up to auto-post while I’m gone.  I’ll return Sunday afternoon. 

For some reason I’m getting way behind in my email. I have about 200 unread emails and that was before this trip.  I’ll probably have 300 by the time I get home.  I’m going to do my best to whittle that number down to a manageable size when I return.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Contemplation Done Here

When I saw the old chair post it made me remember the old chair I discovered. Last fall I went on a road trip, from Terrace, BC to Telegraph Creek, BC by way of BC highway 37. At a location known as Burrage Creek I stopped to take some pictures at a pullout, and looked up and saw a chair, looking out from the top of an embankment, viewing the whole valley. I scrambled up, hoping to find some story or memento, but there was only the chair and an empty wine bottle. I presumed that some workers on the road crew some 20 years ago left it there.
This is an area of BC and Canada that one should tour if ever the chance comes.

You just know that a lot of thought and contemplation took place on this chair, especially when you add a little alcohol.

Thanks Bryan

Harvie Krumpet

Winner of the 2004 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film, Harvie Krumpet is the biography of an ordinary man seemingly cursed with bad luck. From being born with Tourette Syndrome to getting struck by lightning; from having his testicle removed to developing Alzheimer’s disease; Harvie’s troubles seem unending ! Yet, Harvie learns many lessons about life and enjoys its many fruits. He finds love, freedom, nudity and ultimately the true meaning of what it is to be human.

Thanks sg
