Remember me? Of course!

I just got an email today that was a voice from the past. A co-worker from almost 20 years ago googled my name and found me on the AWNA website. (Aack – what a horrible photo. I really have to have that changed.) I had to share some of the text below because Mary made a guess at what my life was like now. How close do you think she came to reality? Hi Julie Anne: Remember me? From the Echo? Can’t...

Getting ready to leave

The suitcase is packed and zipped. Just need to put a few things in the carry on and I’m ready to go. Does George have the tickets? He was the one that booked this flight right? Hmm… must ask before it is too late. Still no toner for the printer at home, and there will be much stamping of feet and “i told you so’s” if this is not set right before the last minute. The Phlight is to...

Closing ceremonies

It’s true, Monday is always the nicest day for weather. Steak’n’dregs for breakfast. Scrabble games for brain food. And MORE curling. Sports highlight when the team comprising Randy, Jennifer and JA scored a perfect end against George, Lynda and Bob. Yes, yes…the other team still won the game, but that will only ever be a...

Day Two – where are you?

While disappointing that 4 or 5 couple scheduled for Sunday were unable to make it, the rest of us gamely soldiered on. Welcome the Brunattis, Rachel’n’Brent, Heather and welcome back the Kovats. More skiing, souping and curling of course. Is is true that Bob and Jennifer never lost a game? Pork roast, bison roast, sweet potatoes, salad and yes, another frosted cookie. I forgot to put in the cabbage...

Day One down, Day Two to go

Frolic 09 – Day One from JAMcRae on Vimeo. Day One down, Day Two to go. We had 4 Snookies, 3 Kovats, 2 Palmers, 2 Fiedlers, 2 Holli and Tim’n’Eric with their snow-loving dog Frisco. It was the coldest Frolic yet staying around minus 18. Still got in one loop of skiing before dark. Prime Rib with Yorkshire pudding for dinner, plus Turnip/Apple bake, Red Beans& Rice, Caesar Salad and some lovely...

Making ice

Of course getting reading for the Frolic means making the curling rink. Always trying something new, this year we’re trying to make the scribe lines stand out better. last year’s rings didn’t work well at all, so hopefully this method will be better. Ouch, leg cramps from crouching for hours. Testing out hosting video on Vimeo. Making Ice from JAMcRae on...

Symphonic tambourine

I meant to comment on the symphony a week or so ago, but am very tardy. George, Scourge and I attended the ESO’s performance of The Music of Science Fiction Sci Fi Spectacular with George Takei Story from the Journal It was a relaxed affair, no stuffy tuxedoed old folk. Many TV geeks. Not just music from Star Trek, it was music from movies (Harry Potter, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Superman etc.) and the...
