Anyway, everybody's having babies! Babies are excellent.
Last night I tried to hum a tune into Joan's belly.  A pause... Then WHAP the biggest damn kick we ever felt!

Maybe baby was already listening to Aretha.

And now a new thing: anxiety  >:(  I have rational reasons to feel it, I guess, but it's hitting me nonetheless.

A little grand dad bragging. Oldest grand daughter just got back from England where she was with the BC U18 women's rugby team. They were there for ten days and won all three of their games, including beating the reigning English club champions 24-5. They also visited London, Bath, Oxford and Brighton while they were at it.

Congrats to you and them. Sounds like a fun trip. Now did they get to sit down to enjoy a feed of that traditional English dish....curry?

Ya, they had a lot of fun. Don't know about the curry, haven't talked to her since she got back on Sunday.

The Brits were in India for more than 300 years and has a lot of the best Indian food, so I guess it could be called traditional

The kid is damn good. To be picked as a 17 year old to tour with the U18's was quite a coupe. Last March, she went to Vegas to play with the BC U18 Sevens. They came second. During the tryouts, the UBC coach stopped by and told her to keep her marks up because she could be in line for a scholarship. She is just going into grade 12. This summer at the provincials, the U Vic coach invited her to their tryouts.

I got some feedback on my communication practices on Friday...

Poor posture, resting **** face and cutting people off are things I do.  I have been somewhat aware of these in the past and worked on them but it was kind of tough hearing it, especially from a much younger woman with a lot less experience.  Still, she could have said nothing.  I actually owe her a huge debt of gratitude.  (Side note she IS supposed to be coaching me as I am onboarding into a new environment using new methods but often times people leave this kind of thing out because it's personal and awkward.)

HOW ARE YOU ?

NOT GREAT, BOB


The heavy smoke in the air is a big reason why.  It's affecting my eyes, my sinuses, and my lungs. Normally at this time of year I would be out swimming, running, paddling my kayak, and biking in the hills. I love being physically active outdoors. Being asthmatic, trying to do those things right now with the current air quality would cause me to die.  It's sucking the joy out of life right now, affecting my mood and my energy level.  Everything feels like a chore.  This is worse than last summer, which was worse than I'd seen since I've lived here. If this is the way things are going to be every summer, I am going to have to rethink living here.

Wx report here was light rain in the am, then a breeze, blue sky, then more smoke, luckily fairly high up. It reminded me of my time in Nfld., "if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes".

I get the impression that the scene in Toronto is mostly women who look like Al Franken.  Is it all flat-tops and thick-rim glasses?

I am off to Edmonton for a brief visit with my family and some  friends.  I'll be back mid-week, unless I get arrested or stabbed.
