Since the end of the month is nearing, I thought I would share some events that transpired a few weeks ago. In fact, it happened a day or so before New Years. My dad, or at least the remains of him, had been bundled into a very large box, along with his guitar, some photos … Continue reading »

R.I.P. Brian Klem

At 10:30pm last night, I received a phone call that I have been expecting for a very long time. My dad’s fiance called me to tell me that he had passed away during the night. It was a surprise to hear but I was at least glad she called to tell me. My dad is … Continue reading »

Well folks, it seems that this year is starting to look a lot like last year and let me tell you, I’m not overly happy about it. It all started so good. We found out that our troublesome neighbors got their own well which meant that we would not have to deal with them anymore. … Continue reading »

About a week or so ago I asked Tamara if she would like to take Easter Monday and go out caching with me down in Riverside-Albert. She enjoys caching but has not had a chance to go out with me much in the last year or so and there was a specific cache that I … Continue reading »
