    What a difference a day makes! Yesterday I was thinking that the rain had ended,with my "blue sky" thinking. Today was a near death experience,when I got home I was shaking uncontrollably and had to get myself into a hot bath (it was probably barely warm),my poor old body was in hypothermic shock.My iPod got wet,but it seems to be still working, although the internal speaker has given up for the moment.It probably got wet!

    This was supposed to be a three hour run,but we got turned around a bit in the cool muddy forest and when we got back on track we were temptingly close to Sandy's car and warmth! We did run two hours fifteen minutes though... Ben the dog was pretty good today, we needed to put him on his leash a couple of times when we were near the roads. We saw about nine of my running buddies while out there.It was a bit of a schmooze-fest!

  • The Al Howie interview 2013

    Sep 30, 2013 | 70 min
    It turned out to be over an hour with a couple of cuts in the dialogue to let the music through.All in all I liked the whole day, even getting rained on, and getting a bus tour of the whole Cowichan Valley! You don't have to change busses up there, the bus that I was on Life moves at a different pace up there and I enjoy using the Brentwood connector. My interview with Al will probably be heard by about 100 aficionados of the open mike...It will be ready on Spreaker internet radio shortly and on youtube after that. It is audio only so you can listen to it while playing scrabble with your friends.
