Another Month – Another #@&?ing Idiot Light

All photos taken on March 21, 2022. Welcome to the first full day of spring? Strange title, I know. 5 weeks ago, we were going for a downtown city walk, when the check engine light came on, so we turned around and headed to the dealer to check it out.

Analogue Adventures 1988 – #1 – And now for something completely different!

Photos taken on April 9 and 10, 1988. “You can’t fly right now.” I heard the words as if through a haze, as I sat on my doctor’s exam table in a world of pain.

I Find Myself With a Smile on My Face – Part 5

All photos taken on September 27, 2022. …to ride through Terwillegar Park and see how far we could go. Long ago, in another life, we had walked and cross country skied in this park, when it was little more than an abandoned gravel pit. We were amazed on the changes in the last 40 years.Continue reading “I Find Myself With a Smile on My Face – Part 5”

I Find Myself With a Smile on My Face – Part 4

All photos taken on September 27, 2022. This would be one of the longest legs of our ride at 6.1km (3 3/4 miles) along the treed edge of Fort Edmonton Park to Whitemud Road and then down into the river valley and across the Fort Edmonton Footbridge. From there, we took a short jaunt upContinue reading “I Find Myself With a Smile on My Face – Part 4”

I Find Myself With a Smile on My Face – Part 3

All photos taken on September 27, 2022. …for another trip to the Amenities Block (coffee recycling station). When hiking or biking anywhere, knowing where the washrooms are is a plus.
