Intermission Between Rounds at The Vic Park Classic Tournament

Whilst Brendan and Bryce were off using the restroom, Curtis and I wandered over to the first tee pad when I made a comment about some brightly coloured clothes sitting on a park bench. He replied with “Oh yeah, they are,” followed by a small giggle. Upon reaching the tee pad, Curtis set down his…

Lunch and Nine Holes of The Vic Park Classic Tournament

Twenty-two minutes after Round 1 concluded I pulled into the parking lot of a nearby Mexican restaurant called Mucho Burrito to buy a taco salad for lunch. Reading through the menu I changed my mind and went with a regular sized burrito stuffed with black beans and every vegetable they had on the menu plus…

What is in Southern Saskatchewan?

Slowing down after his trip over to the coffee station my colleague says, “hey Aaron how was your holiday?” Usually around this time of year we complete our annual pilgrimage down to southern British Columbia to hit a couple of hot springs, see some extended family and bring back a few cases of cider and…

An Afternoon at Sun Tree Spa; Was it Worth the Price?

You have all seen the commercials of people sitting by a zero gravity swimming pool lying just a few steps from a gorgeous beach with palm trees in the foreground. Then the camera pans over to a beautiful couple getting a massage beneath a gazebo their minds a million miles away from reality. Of course…

Sun Tree Spa, Round 3: The Swedish Massage

Waking up from a short nap, I looked up at my wife with a kinked neck “what time is it?” She looked down at from her book and responded, “a few minutes until a quarter til the hour, why?” SHIT!! Were Late!! … went through my mind as my cellphone started vibrating and dancing across…

Sun Tree Spa, Round 2: The Facial

“Are you ready Aaron?” Emma asked as I re-entered the spa waiting room. “Sort of,” I replied in a sarcastic I don’t know what’s coming next tone. She picked up on my hesitation then says, “there’s nothing to worry about. Do you know your skin type?” I shake my head no. “No worries, I will…

Sun Tree Spa, Round 1: The Pedicure

“Hello I’m Andrea and she’s Emma, we will be taking care of you this afternoon,” she said followed by, “Shauna you’ll be with me and Aaron with Emma.” They both smiled then picked up our clipboards and forms to read our health history prior to the treatments beginning. Whilst walking down the hallway Emma asked…

Walking Down Moose Jaw’s Main Street

After double duty in the underground tours we parted ways with a bottle of Smoking Gun hot sauce made with ghost peppers, garlic, vinegar and spices. Also we picked up a postcard depicting the Dominion Lands Office in 1908 which today is where the Tunnels of Moose Jaw operates out of. Between the two tours…

The Truth About Moose Jaw’s Underground Tunnels

To begin the excitement today we booked two tours, The Chicago Connection about prohibition in the 1920’s and the famous Chicago gangster Al Capone. Then a break until we went underground again to learn about Bunker 24, the cold war and the fight against communism. The first thing you need to understand about these tours…

What Did You Love About Cuba? A Dolphin Named Nina!

We met Nina on a trip to Cuba back in 2017. We stood in line like the rest of the tourists to hang out inside a giant concrete pool in the middle of the ocean. It was both super random and pretty fun. At first we felt kind of bad for these dolphins locked up….

An Ultra Embarrassing Start to Hello Wisconsin!!!

Perhaps there should be an unwritten law about when travellers on an airplane should shout out HELLO WISCONSIN!!! at the precise moment the airplanes’ wheels touch the tarmac at General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee Wisconsin? For whatever reason the passengers around me erupted into laughter as the stewardess picked up the announcement phone to…

A FREE Ride on the Delta Express Tram

After polishing off the two 500-gram bins of food and washing it down with a cool litre of water from the Yeti tumbler it was time to get back on my feet and figure out how-to get onto the Delta Express Train running back and forth across the ceiling tiles. Wandering a bit further down…

Laying Over in Detroit Rock City

It sounds waaaaay better than it actually was. Our CJ200 airplane took off from Toronto Pearson International Airport in Ontario Canada shortly after 7:45am eastern standard time (EST) and came to a rolling holt at one of the many gates along Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, in Detroit, Michigan USA. The time reported by Co-pilot…

Arriving Before Sunrise at Toronto Pearson International Airport

Skidding to a stop on the entry landing zone we smashed around in our seats and taxied over to the gate at YYZ aka Toronto Pearson International Airport. This was my fifth landing in as many years at YYZ. Awaiting the door to pop-open folks on the blurry red eye stood up, stretching limbs, legs…

A Turkey in Time Departing from Edmonton International Airport

For ninety-three percent of the people out there traveling the first flight I chose to fly on down to Wisconsin would make you arrive with bright red eyes, blurry vision and a lack of pep in their step. Of course for this guy being awake after midnight is an everyday occurrence and red eye syndrome…

South Facing Windows Are a Blessing for Heating a House

The week went by in a flash and before we knew it we were sitting in the Tacoma driving East along Whitemud headed towards the northeast corner of the city. Idly we chatted about how fast the week flew by then we sat in silence enjoying the sounds of Colin James, 40 Light Years. On…

An Eruption of Laughter and the Sweet Surrender of Serendipity

Whilst the hostess set down the menus and silverware wraps we tugged on our zippers pulling apart the sides of our jacket, Shauna drew her arms out then snuggled up inside the jacket while I tossed the jacket, toque and gloves into the awaiting seat next to mine then sat down. Neither of us spoke…

The Taco Future Is Nigh

Okay okay, I’ve had my Taco for like almost 2-years, and I’m already contemplating the revolution of its future with all the bling bling of EV tech going on. Honestly, its a bit overwhelming when you compare an ICE Taco MSRP to say a Rivian RT1 MSRP but hey, I suppose by 2030 the ICE…
