Brewster seems to be doing better these days.  He’ll be 15 on January 31st.  He’s taking his pills all of the time now.  Kim bought “Pill Pockets” for him.  He’s a BIG fan of Kim’s beef barley soup over his dry food.  He loves bite size chuncks of watermelon that he eats with me at lunch.  He eats about ¼ of my fish at lunch.  He’s been fairly active this week too.

I’m not sure why but I’ve felt a bit slugish all week.  I did my exercises other than on Monday, and I made them count, no weak effort here.  I don’t know if it’s because I had an alcoholic beverage on the weekend or if my body just feels old?  I got out of bed the other day & almost took cover.  Everything was popping & cracking, I thought someone had a machine gun.  This morning I was up at 7:15 am, had my 5 minute breakfast of 2 hard boiled eggs & a glass of vegetable juice.  Then I got after my exercises.  I did my squats first & wanted to “cry” my legs just hurt, had to take an extended breather.

Peeked out the window Wednesday morning and the smoke from the wildfires seems to have cleared.  I hope all is well on the west coast.

Kim went to the condo meeting Tuesday evening.  After a vote of 28-7 on the pet agenda, visiting pets are once again allowed in the building.  Living in a condo feels like living under multiple dictators within a democracy outside.  Kim needed to vent a bit after the meeting.  I guess someone at the meeting had an issue with EVERYTHING…and that’s why the meeting was an hour long!

It’s not even spring of 2021 & I’m already stressing out about finding a house next year!  The stars have to align perfectly for us.  I guess the toughest part will be selling our condo.  Far too many new, vacant condos available at ½ the price.  If we do find a buyer for this place & a house within a month, I’m almost positive we’ll lose money.  I shouldn’t stress until we actually put our place on the market in the spring.

Any guitars you see on here are never going to be purchased.  It’s just me widow shopping.  I’m VERY excited with my choices & they’ve been heavily researched. I’m holding out for a call or email next week or the week after telling me the guitar I ordered in January is here!  Cross your “fingers and toes” for me!  If it’s not here next week or by the end of September, I guess I’ll just keep waiting.  It’s been an odd year to say the least!  It should be here “Any day now”.  A house is a must for us!  No big purchases by either of us until we find a house or end up renovating our suite.

So now that Donald Trump has been caught on tape in February admitting he’s downplaying Covid-19 to avoid a panic, everybodies a “stable genius” and refuse to wear masks now?  People have very little respect for others & it’s getting worse all of the time.

If wearing a mask is too difficult for some people, I have a solution!  You don’t have to put on any other clothes, just a mask over your mouth and nose.  You’ll actually be wearing less clothing & if you want more clothing it must be in mask form, any size, anywhere & we’ll get you a set of markers so you can make them any colour you want.  You’ll look just as ridiculous as you did not wearing a mask in the first place!  You’re welcome!  J

You can wear a mask or suffer the wrath of Red Forman.

There are 3 WILDLY EXPENSIVE “never going to happen” guitars I’d like to own.  Super expensive Core model PRS.  Mark Tremonti signature.

Another super expensive Core model PRS.  Paul Reed Smith’s signature.

An even more expensive Dave Grohl 335 Gibson.  I think these retail at $12,000 US?  If you can find one.  I’m pretty sure I’m done buying guitars.

YAY, new season on Disney+ starting October 30th.  One of the few streaming shows I watch “The Mandalorian”

New video from Alter Bridge this week.  Seeing them live is near the top of my bucket list.  This is the band that Mark Tremonti plays for.  For me, Mark Tremonti & singer/guitarist, Myles Kennedy, are top notch!  I easily have 4 favourite bands now.  Foo Fighters, Big Wreck, Tool, & Alter Bridge.  Foo Fighters since 1997 & Big Wreck when I was of legal bar age & saw the live in 1999!  Alter Bridge had me hooked since I heard their first single in 2004.  Tool was persistent & eventually got me hooked on their 1999 release “Lateralus”.

I googled a bunch of songs to learn on the 7 string & they’re all metal songs, this could take a while 3 down with a LOT to go.

Double Header baseball today.  I’ll be parked on the couch with my acoustic guitar practicing this as I did last night.

I’ll likely be playing/practicing an assortment of other forbiden songs a guitarist shouldn’t play.  Stuff I know but haven’t bothered to work on.

Music throughout the weekend.  “1970s Rock Compilation”, “In Flames”, “Lamb of God”, & “Dead Sara”



Well Friday I didn’t feel like watching the baseball game at all.  Instead Kim & I watched a movie on Netflix.  We don’t watch horror movies much at all.  The movie “Get Out” was really good though!

I stayed up late to watch 3 episodes of “That 70s Show” on Netflix.

Saturday Kim got up & made a large delicious breakfast for us.  Bacon, oatmeal, & fruit.  Then I buckled in to watch the Blue Jays lose again.  This is a rebuilding year for the team.  The President & General Manager are doing a rebuild without stating what they’re doing.

It’s a team full of young players.  I have no expectations this year or next year really.

Woke up early today 5:20 am.  Went to visit a different cousin from Winnipeg at my parents’ place.  Movie night, they hadn’t seen “Aquaman” so we watched that on dad’s big HD projection screen in the basement.

Binge watched the last 3 episodes of the first season of “Big Little Lies” on Crave.  2nd season is starting today

Now it’s time to see if the Jays can score a run today, or find another way to lose a game?


Ed Kowalczyk (singer for Live) radio interview.

…And I liked one song from the debut “Velvet Revolver” debut.

“The Agonist” are back with a single from their upcoming album.



They’re a rock band, just not a heavy rock band.  If you remember “Oasis” from the 1990s, you probably remember the name Noel Gallagher.  He was the guitar player in “Oasis”, his brother Liam was the singer.  Constantly bickering in public at each other during the “Oasis” days when they were one of the biggest bands in the world.

Now they don’t have each other’s phone number from what I’ve read.

They both have their own separate bands.  I checked out Liam Gallagher’s band & it just wasn’t for me.  Noel Gallagher’s very opinionated & really doesn’t care what anyone else thinks.  He’s right & everyone else is wrong.  I really like his music though.  He’s also the singer in his band.  I have 2 of his albums, there’s also an EP & another album on iTunes that was released before the 2nd & 3rd album.
