Just a thought... Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family. [Anthony Brandt]
Ah, Friday. And not just any Friday: one of a precious few that precede a summer weekend! We've fewer of these left than we care to count, and with the CNE beginning today, well...you know....
Of course, this means a few things, including the fact that any time for summer vacation has to be taken - and soon! So that's what I'll be doing next week. One week in BC for Rob and me to take a road trip with my Dad to Victoria and to visit with sisters near Kelowna. Should be fun - or it'll make the news. One or the other.
I promise to share some BC beauty shots with you when I get home. I was going to write while I was away, but Rob persuaded me to give him the week off (since he does the editing and processing every day). So, I will.
I'll return a week Monday with lots of fresh stuff and adventure to share (I hope). The audio journal, for those of you kind enough to ask, will return after Labour Day. I wanted to give Rob a bit of a break from that, too. Thank you for understanding, and especially if you have been missing it. I was going to run a poll; if this was Twitter it'd be easy to do it.
In the meantime, in honour of the CNE and its bizarre food offerings (honey mustard crickets on a beef hot dog top the list this year, I think), I wanted to share with you some video Rob and I shot in a restaurant at one of the resorts to which we took listeners in Mexico a few years ago.
There were some unusual crunchy items on the menu and I decided to try them - just for you. There's a good chance you didn't see this, and I hope you enjoy it. (I'll apologize now for the loud restaurant music and even more jarring lighting! At the very least, they may be welcome distractions from the delicacy I decided to try.) Here's the link.
Have a great weekend! Darren and I return for the long haul on August 29th.
