Look how big Georgie is getting! I took them out to Jack Darling and they had the best time running and cavorting and wrestling.
I trundled off to an an old-school barber shop in the depths of the former South Etobicoke. It’s the kind of place where the barber cleans up the edges with a straight razor and the customers shoot the shit about local politics. I got so caught up in the atmosphere, I failed to scream NOOOOOO when the barber asked if I wanted my moustache trimmed. I was trying to grow it into something spectacular and now it’s been chopped back into the realm of the ordinary. Alas!
….or is there always somebody on the plane who insists on making a phone call after the flight attendant asks everyone to turn off their electronic devices?….

I awoke to the news that Loblaws will be opening up on the outskirts of Kensington Market in 2016. I understand it’s going to be part of a condo tower. Our city is changing so fast. These days I live in the SW corner of the amalgamated Toronto and from my vantage point the changes in the city seem amplified. I hardly recognize my old King & Bathurst neighbourhood any more. It’s condo city.
Kensington has been remarkably resilient over the years. It’s a rag-tag treasure in our city, and it’s one of my favourite places in Toronto. I hope it can survive this latest scheme.
One day when the whole area is filled with big ugly condos we’ll look back and ask, hey whatever happened to Kensington? How did we let it slip away. I wish collectively we had a better instinct to protect the character areas of our city.
I’ve been feeling more or less under the weather for the last week or so, something I’ve been more or less ignoring, but this morning when I woke up I was down for the count. Headache, sore throat, ear infection, nose running like a tap, 0 energy.
I slept much of the day and that seems to have helped at least some. I still have low energy and a runny nose that won’t stop, but my ears and throat feel much better and the headache is gone. Hoping I’m more or less human again in the morning.
…..doesn’t mean I really really really want you to send me a direct message or an email selling me your coaching services. OK? Thanks.
