Kim & I didn’t sign up for cancer to be a big part of our life, but it is. Kim helps me when needed & sometimes when I don’t need it, but she gets concerned that whatever may be too difficult for me. I’ve had to adapt how I do things, like hand washing the dishes. The first few times it was awkward and hurt slightly because of the wheelchair. Different way of leaning over the sink. Eventually I figured out how to do it “My Way”. I may be slower at most things, but I can do them. If something I’m doing around a large group affects others, either I get out of the way or people can just ask me to move, I don’t want to ruffle any feathers!
My parents & I have Saskatchewan Roughriders, football, tickets. This will be the first season at a new stadium. In the old stadium we’d get there about 45 minutes or more before game time & be among the last 100 or 200 people to leave. I had to go up & down about 10 stairs to get to my seat, but dad & I tried to wait so we wouldn’t delay anyone entering or leaving the stadium.
I try not to bother others & I’m not bothered by others who ask me to get out of their way. I know my wheelchair can be an obstacle for others, I have no problem moving. I try not to rely on others either for help. I almost always tell people “I’ve got this, don’t worry, I’ll ask for help if I need it.” I don’t need help with everything, don’t worry. If it’s my first time doing something I need some supervision the first few times until I can figure out how to do it my way, so I can at least minimize any help needed.
I can deal with a band not touring in 2017 if they have nothing booked & are recording a new album. As long as they don’t take 10,000 days (like Tool) to do it.
From the album “10,000 Days” by Tool. Latest release since 2006. The longer they take, my expectations of the album become larger. Yes, pun intended! We’re only 10 years/ 3,650 days in. We may have to wait another 20 years! Hahahahahahaha!

I would love it if more bands did a full North American tour. If they did one show in every state & province. The closest Canadian date is Toronto? It would take 2 maybe 2.5 days of driving from Regina to Toronto, but this is what most “North American” tours look like. This is an actual tour itinerary for a band that shall remain nameless. They are situated in America.

If we’re lucky someone will go through Vancouver, B.C. which is also quite the hike from Regina! Even Canadian groups don’t even think about touring in Saskatchewan, yet In Flames, from Sweden, schedule a tour date 2 hours north in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It’s a boring drive, but 2 or 2.5 hours in a car is better than nothing! At the moment we’re in no shape of considering to pay for airline tickets, a hotel, & concert tickets while grabbing a meals from any type of restaurant.
Kim’s 2007 New Year’s Eve resolution was “to be a better wife”. I found it written on a small piece of paper in our previous house. I’ve always thought “How could she be any better?” I’m not keeping score, that shouldn’t happen in a marriage, but if I was I’d easily be losing. She’s AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
Halestorm vs. The Pretty Reckless. I like both groups, bad song choice for both though.
Foo Fighters to spend most of 2017 recording!!!
