Quick Guelph Trip

On Thursday night I got, what I'll characterize as an emergency call, from Richy Tremain saying get the girls and you to Guelph on Friday night - The famous Alexander Duncan MacLeod is going to be in town for a visit!  My heart started racing hearing such wonderful news - Off to Guelph.

So it was just fantastic to get there and be in the company of my girls, Rich and his family, and Alex.  Yes, we were missing some fine folks like Mark Kiteley, the rest of Alex's family, and a few other like minded rad people, but we made due of course.  In fact, we began talking about some other great people from our past and Alex and Rich's old roommate from the Brown House, Phil Mathias' name came up.  Hell, Phil lives 8 km away in south Guelph = No sooner then dinner was over, we had called Phil and said we coming over....  That is Phil on the piano video.....

We get over to Phil's.  Rich sees Phil every 2 or 3 months or so, I have seen Phil a few times in the past 5-6 years - But Alex hadn't seen him since the late 90s.  So that was great getting together and catching up....  And bang, Phil called another Windsor Alumnus, Johnny Darren Cress, to drive over from Burlington.  BOOM!  What a great reunion of sorts from old friends & Lancer teammates.  The stories were flying...  We were all somehow better, faster, fitter, more popular then I remember it - Oh well, our intoxication with spirits and friendship might have been to blame for such errors.  No one was the wiser.  No one cared.

So it was great, great times all in all - Boy are we all older though!  Teenaged kids, adolescent kids, running injuries out the waa-who, babies here and still on the way, marriages, grey hairs, enlarged prostates, etcetera, etcetera.  Keep it together my friends!  Until next time.
