  • Birthday Camping…

    Day #43 Usually I don’t reveal the inspiration of my blog titles until the end of each post, but today I must break with tradition and dive right into the title topic of today’s commentary. Now, I don’t want anyone to think that I am fixating on my yearly birth anniversary, but there is a […]

  • Spielberg Take Notice…

    Day #42 Shockingly it was raining in Fort Hope today. According to the weather network, we are supposed to be in for at least a few days of sun over the next little while. It’s not that rain was the defining factor of the day, I just like to keep you all abreast of the […]

  • Dinner Party…

    Day #41 I promised last night that I would tell you a little bit more about yesterday’s canoe adventure. So, here it goes…We put our canoes in the water at about 5:00pm, just short of a place called ‘Pioneer Pit’. It was freezing cold, rainy and altogether miserable, but away we went. We travelled down […]

  • The Trek…

    Day #40 What do most normal people do on wet, cold, rainy days? Some would chose to stay inside, read a book, watch tv, play some music or maybe attempt to balance their checkbook. What have I done during the last two rainy days? Well…let me tell you…Yesterday, the temperature peaked at a balmy 13 […]

  • The Fort Hope Half Marathon…

    Day #39 I really have very little of note to report about today. I woke up periodically throughout the morning, but managed to keep myself in bed until about 10:30. I awoke to pouring rain and cold. I have actually gotten to a happy place when it comes to the rain. I actually find myself […]

  • A Campfire and a BBQ + Lyndsay’s Home!

    Day #38 Aloha! It’s currently 1:14am, and I really should be sleeping. Unforunately I am just now sitting down to type out my blog for the day, so I guess my night time/early morning dreaming will have to wait for a few minutes. Today was a good day. It had peaks and valleys like any […]

  • Frozen Grapes…

    Day #37 The obvious clever remark to make about frozen grapes is that they are better than sour grapes. But I have to say that I quite enjoy sour grapes. I would much rather eat a sour grape than a sweet grape  any day…as for the metaphor surrounding grapes, I do believe that sour grapes […]

  • Where’s the Hat? Just Call Me Chef Fearnall…

    Day #36 Breaking news! Today, I was thrust into a role that I had not yet been field tested in. Tonight, I fired up the stove, whipped out a frying pan, took out a pot and made dinner! I was the only person available to man the kitchen this evening, so for the first time […]

  • Bring on the Charge…

    Day #35 Yesterday I asked for a cavalry charge…Today I received it! If only life always worked this way! The 4-6 class at Literacy Camp had once again dwindled to a measly 4 children as of 12:30 on Monday. Today, by 12:30 our numbers once again ricocheted off the bottom, all the way back up […]

  • This Radio Thing is Really Kinda Fun…

    Day #34 Last night was the first night since I’ve been in Fort Hope that I haven’t slept particularly well. Perhaps it was a result of that nagging offbeat that I felt pulsating through my ‘yesterday’, or maybe it was the excitement of eating my white macaroni for lunch that kept me awake; whatever the […]
