Happy Travels GT.

Celebrated my son's first birthday here. We had a very small party with grandparents a couple of friends, ordered pizza, fed him his first cake.... it seems he prefers spinach to ice cream right now but that's fine, spinach is cheaper.  ;)

Yes Bon voyage GT.

Sonal convey my congratulations to your little.

I heard many new mothers who, after the first birthday and have to return from "mat leave ," express their regrets as the littles are getting fun as of age one.

I hope your little has and shall remain fun for you and the dad.

Oh it rained last night apparently first time in a month and almost cleared all the smoke. People here are all smiles!

Sounds like fun!  I arrived safe and sound and fed the masses at the opening of the field school.  Then promptly got a completely flat tire on a campsite in rural manitoulin island.  Can't win 'em all ... but I also did just spend 20 minutes staring at the zillions of stars you can see from here on a clear night.   Someone at the campground actually had a compressor and got us enough air in the tire to get back to the hotel, but I suspect it will be flat again in the morning, but much easier to take care of in the daytime at a hotel than where I was earlier tonight :) . I suspect part of tomorrow will be sending the tire off to the shop to have it repaired.

Sorry to hear about the tire. Hope it all worked out.

I'm back now, frantically learning and hour set for tonight. Yiiiiikes.

Our slot was great. I had to really take the reins on that gig and marshall the bass player and cue everything. We nailed it all though that guy had some confused bass sliding moments :)

I needed that adventure, I'm hustling some more.

Yep got the tire repaired without too much fuss and got it back on the vehicle.  Then had to rush my wife to the Emergency later that afternoon as she got very suddenly very very dizzy and her ears were plugged, etc.  That all worked out fine as well as it was just something that happened due to a rapid change in barometric pressure (which she is sensitive to).  She got some steroid nasal spray that is helping with that.  Today was business as usual.
