Thursday afternoon Timothy Wong came over with his two kids going into grade 7 and grade 6. Tim & I have been best buds since grade 9! That night was the Saskatchewan Roughriders CFL team’s season opener. Tim was in town for that he lives in Edmonton, that’s where he went for University after high school. Dad & I are still in our season ticket seats. Roughly 10 stairs up for me in the 22nd or 21st row in seats 1 & 2. Directly in front of us when we come up the stairs. I’ve been going to the games since my Grandfather could hold me on his lap as a baby, so I’m guessing for 33 years, I’m 36 now, I guess I shouldn’t count the 4.5 years I was in the hospital with cancer?

I fell Friday in the late afternoon while I was going into my parents house. My Grandparents were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on Saturday. On Friday people were coming to my parents place for a BBQ. Kim & I got there at roughly 4:30 pm. Kim backed up the vehicle so I could walk along the side of the car & grab the railing at the front of the house. 1 hand on the vehicle & 1 hand on the railing. I figured “Ah, I’ve done this before, shouldn’t be a problem.”? Oh did I ever misjudge that! Got my arms in place & fell right on the driveway. Fortunately I’ve sort of learned to fall on my side or my bum, so it doesn’t hurt & I don’t break a bone. Of course everyone starts freaking out. “Don’t worry, I’m fine” I told everyone as I was getting on the front step & about to stand holding on to the railing. In the end I was fine. No bruises, scrapes, scars, or anything like that, all of that exercising has really paid off! Yes, I will continue to exercise as much as I can, even if I one day get a job. I really don’t like exercising but I miss it when I don’t, I almost feel guilty on the weekends?

Saturday night we celebrated my grandparents 60th anniversary. I’ve been going to that place since university, I had no clue there was a private room at the back of the building. I enjoyed it. All of my aunts, uncles & cousins from out of town. It’s pretty rare to see us all together since everybody but my immediate family is out of province. We had supper & the cake my aunt made at Tony Romas then we went back to my parents place for a while. Most of us were outside & around midnight it just started dumping rain. Most people left but a handful of us went inside. Kim & I left at about 1:00 am.

Today I watched the Blue Jays demolish the Cleveland Indians 17-1.  My uncle & cousin came over to hang out & watch the game with me.  Good times all weekend, busy but good!

Rolling Stone magazine’s weekend question? My favourite pop punk album would be one of the following 3….


LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SORRY.

Eve 6 “Horrorscope”

Green Day “Dookie”

Jimmy Eat World “Bleed American”

New Echosmith video

Now you’re saying “Who’s Echosmith?” This band…

I think I’ve posted this before?


As much a I like Pearl Jam, Jack White’s not about to get any of my money. Every famous musician has worked hard to get where they are, but I don’t have to like their music or waste my time & energy hating them. Wait 3 minutes & the song will be over, don’t turn on the radio if you like or don’t purchase or stream their music.

Well known for his work in The White Stripes

In Flames DVD, yes please!!!!!! They’re currently working on a new album. There is no release date for the DVD or album.

Chris Adler was only a session drummer with Megadeth, & likely will not return unless needed. He is & always has been the drummer of “Lamb of God”
