Last two weeks (ish)

First Sabres game of the season - We went to our first game of the season last night, and Grant’s first game ever! A selection of photos:
Making my way downtown - Faces pass and I’m homebound.
He enjoys catastrophe - It sure is great being back with this hot mess. ❤❤❤
Whistler - On my last full day in Whistler I went shopping for souvenirs with Pam, and also took a couple pictures. 
Boisterious - Do you hear the people sing? Singing a song of angry men? It is the music of a people Who will not be slaves again!
Narratives - A lot of the Grand Meetup is repetition. That isn’t a criticism. With nearly 600 people here, you inevitably end up doing a lot of talking, and depending on who you’re talking with you either catch up on the same things over and over, or you meet someone for the first time and give them...

You do you - I always knew we were descended from unicorns.

Henry was at the counter after me and I heard Ele quote... Continue Reading →
Llamafest - I went to llamafest with my sister-in-law yesterday, and let me tell you about Paxton. I’m sure his real name is Bill Paxton, and he is living in fury that Lucky got to wear the Chewbacca costume, and he doesn’t care who knows it.  Lucky best watch his impossibly fluffy back. Paxton is here and... Continue Reading →
