Bits & Bobs

…the silly paraphernalia one seems to collect when one has engaged in multiple 365 challenges over the years. All of this, and much more, lives in a very old metal lunch box that I acquired in my grandparents basement, long, long ago. 118 Photos in 2018 - 23. Bits and Bobs

Side Trip to Squamish

December 2nd, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

We were headed for Whistler today but, as we were about 10 minutes out of Whistler, we rounded the corner just south of Daisy Lake and the traffic came to a standstill. It turned out that just 15 minutes before we got there, a three car collision had occurred, with a fatality. That meant that [...]

Seeing the City

November 24th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

The other week we went to the cenotaph to pay our respects to those who fought for freedom during the wars. Remembrance Day is a time to stop and think about the freedoms we have and who we owe them too. It is a time to stop and appreciate those who made those freedoms possible. [...]

I love the inventiveness of some of the city planning department. Maybe they recognize that people spend far too much time looking at a smartphone, or too little time actually “seeing” what is around them. Maybe they hope to jolt us out of our digital stupor and have us see the world around us in [...]

Lest We Forget

November 12th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

If we don’t make an effort to remember the sacrifices that men and women made for their countries, we will be doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past. It makes me glad to see how many people turn out for the Remembrance Day ceremonies, particularly how many young people. Maybe we have a chance. [...]

More catching up

Sometimes the path is straight and clear, and other times it takes a sudden dive to the left and you get off track. My entire year seems to have fallen into the latter category and I have spent an inordinate amount of time getting back on track. But that’s OK, it’s fine, because I do [...]

Remnants of hobbies past

November 4th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

For the past month, since we lost Loki, we’ve practically buried ourselves in things around the house. Painting, caulking windows, cleaning, purging, organizing. Today was the garage. There are things that we have a reason to keep (Four brooms? Well, yes...they all have different purposes) There are things that we completely forgot were there (I [...]

What’s on your bookshelf at work?

October 31st, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

I freely admit that I love books. All books. I love novels, non-fiction, technical books, atlases, …… I just love books. Books are tactile, they have heft. They have presence. And I tend to keep technical books…so they have history. A few years ago the federal government, under the previous government, made a terrible decision [...]

Penny for Your Thoughts

October 29th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

The poor penny, it has been relegated to the world of the discarded and worthless items that today's world generates. Now its value lies only in its elemental material - copper (Cu). But the phrase is a part of our vernacular. Will it one day be another one of those phrases, like “You sound like a [...]
