I just had to reread my blog to see where I have left off. It has been too long. Where I am at is saying stuff the mid life crisis guitar, I am getting a 250 2 stroke. The Walton racing has left an impression on me; and I already have a few guitars - maybe a new dirt bike is the ticket. So I hit the road up to a place outside of Wingham, ON and spied a KTM SX 250. It is a 2007 and it has been the owner's bike for the past few years. So he said that this one was definitely the one I needed - and he knows/noticed I road my 990 Adventure up to his shop. So - ya.... I should pull the trigger. I would ride nice, but most importantly look rad in the garage beside my other one.
Well I certainly won't be posting daily updates on the whereabouts and happenings of this year off, but undoubtedly there will be some good content and excitement worked up. I don't have anything officially planned until the end-ish of September. Maybe something next week? Maybe not. I will post though.
Anyway Molly is enrolled in school and had an orientation/meet the creature session today. It was only for 10 minutes, but I seemed to catch-up with the teacher and her kids and their adventures rather than discussing the finer things about junior kindergarten at GPS - hey, it had been quite awhile since I had talked to her and wanted to catch up. Regardless Molly's first day is Friday. She will be in for a bit of a shock, but will otherwise make it fine I am sure.
Lots and lots of swimming and beaching it lately. No pictures to show for it. But the water has been very nice and it is just a great way to spend a few hours.
Shelly and I hit up Brittany's wedding about 3 weeks ago - and again no pictures to show for it. It was a nice event and an even better after party and reception that followed. I always seem to say that the best wedding I have ever been too was the last one I was at. And it is true for the most part. I had a blast, blast at Rick and Caroline's last summer, the Halifax wedding this summer was superb, but Brittany's was really nice and will stand out until the next one I suppose. A few pictures would have been nice.....
And around here I have been putting the final touches on a deck I built/refurbished. I kept the frame and perimetre of a deck outside of the main bedroom. But it needed a new surface and stairs. So slowly I pieced it together and got a neighbour, who is has a metal/blacksmithing shop, to make the railings. it has come together wonderfully actually. Much better that I thought.
I also was a delegate for the Avon Maitland Elementary Teacher's Local at ETFO's yearly annual meeting. Lots of parliamentary privileges, procedures, orders, actions and all of that. We hold 6 seats out of 630 or so in the province. We are a small, but an influential delegation I like to think. It is a good time - but a different good time than the one I had with my buddies visiting.
