Day 805

People of the internet, a late trip to the beach.

Claire, Ally, Bender and I hit up the Selwyn Beach tonight for a quick time in the sand. We tossed the ball for the dog, watched the sun set and I went in for a quick dip. The sunset was fantastic over the lake and we had the whole beach to ourselves.

Too nice.

Today we took Bender to the beach.

Day 803

People of the internet, hiking with Bender.

This morning I took him on an epic route through Peterborough, across the bridge to East City and all the way to the lift lock and back.

He couldn’t resist jumping in the canal at the lock and actually got himself stuck in the water as the drop into the canal is a little too high. I nearly had to get in and heave him out but he swam over to a spot where I could get down and help pull his dumb butt out of the water.

When we made it back to the bridge he jumped in there too and dove under and came back up with a massive tire chunk. Of course, it absolutely stunk and he loved it.

Best graffiti ever on that walking bridge by the way.

Today I took Bender on a hike to the Peterborough Lift Lock.

Day 801
People of the internet, so many lawn signs.
I’ve been volunteering for the Maryam Monsef for Mayor campaign here in Peterborough and have made two trips out to deliver lawn signs.
Apparently there are more than 500 distributed now throughout the city, which is incredible. I think I’ve put out about 25 of them.
Today I helped distribute Maryam Monsef lawn signs.

Day 800

People of the internet, let’s start looking back at some of the fun posts of the past.

Every Thursday I’m going to get on the ‘Throwback Thursday’ trend and post old videos, pictures and stories from the blog to reminisce about the good times over the past two years.

Like this one, an early song and video I recorded with Antonia nearly two years ago. Two years ago! Crazy!

EVERYDAY THROWBACK: Today Antonia added vocals to Lovers Rock by Sade.

Day 799

People of the internet, why I’m not posting lots of stuff on here anymore.

This weekend I was at Ally’s to spend some time with her family and watch her niece get baptized. In order to celebrate they got the kids a bouncy castle for the afternoon in which I think we used more than the little guys!

We bounced and bounced and bounced…

Now, I haven’t really shared any of the videos I’ve made just for Ally but she really liked this one and wants it on the blog too.

Today I shared the bouncy castle video from the weekend.

Day 796
People of the internet, a long run today.
Went out with the old ICU crew to complete a big 94K relay, from way outside the town of Lindsay all the way through Omemee and back to Peterborough. My leg was a 12K stretch through the town of Omemee and just past the rail bridge.
Kudos to everyone who rallied together to organize and map routes, there were a few people who got off track a bit, including myself (I did an extra kilometer in the wrong direction) but we made it!
Today I ran 12K with the ‘ICU Pacers’ in an epic relay race.

Day 793
People of the internet, Admiral Ackbar.
If you’re going to collect LEGO Star Wars sets, you’ve got to have the Admiral Ackbar minifigure, it’s just too cool.
The A-Wing build was a lot of fun, love the look of the set and LEGO has done a sweet job capturing all the angles and curves of the spaceship. My one gripe is that there isn’t a single printed piece in the whole box, every decal is a sticker unfortunately.
LEGO could have easily done this set with just the A-Wing pilot but for collectors out there they tossed in a Han Solo AND an Admiral Ackbar!
You can’t repel a deal of that magnitude!
Today I built the LEGO A-Wing just for the Admiral Ackbar minifigure.

Day 790
People of the internet, weddings!
Ally’s sister got married this weekend and we had a blast celebrating. Ally was a big part in it all, the planning, the decorating, the crafting…and then she even topped it off with an amazing speech that blew everyone away. We ate, we danced and it couldn’t have been a better time.
To be honest there were two weddings that day and I got a chance to sneak out during picture time to spend an hour at my buddy’s place to watch him say his vows. James had done up his entire backyard and he walked down his lawn to marry Laura right there where we’ve spent time having campfires and playing with Carl his dog.
But back to Ally, doesn’t she look great in this shot?
Yesterday we went to Rhonda and Al’s wedding.

Day 788
People of the internet, getting political!
I’ve signed up to help out Maryam Monsef with her campaign for Peterborough mayor and couldn’t be more stoked. She’s a fabulous choice for any leadership position in this city and really hope to see her do well in the upcoming mayoral election.
Luckily my friend Kemi is taking part in helping out too and she put me on lawn sign duty this weekend. I’ve put out five so far and have about twenty more to do on Sunday. Feels really cool to be getting involved and I’ll be keeping the blog posted on Maryam’s progress from time to time.
Today I put out my Maryam Monsef lawn sign.

Day 788
People of the internet, running the dog.
I think it’s impossible to wear this dog out! I took Bender for a 5K run around Little Lake today and he still had some gas in the tank for a swim halfway through as well!
He was pretty well behaved for being a big puppy with the small exception of squirrels. When he sees one you better be holding on tight.
