Day 740
People of the internet, Tegan and Sara!
They came to Peterborough Musicfest and played a full set, it was so great to see. As much as I love their new album it was amazing to hear their old stuff played live.
I was there with Ally, her sisters and a few of her friends and actually got into the VIP section to see it! The crowd was monstrous so luckily we were right up close.
Favorite song of the night goes to their closing one, ‘Call It Off’. It was done so subtly and wonderfully and it was good to see that they kept it to the very end.
Today I saw Tegan and Sarah play at the Peterborough Musicfest.

Day 736
People of the internet, the coolest shop downtown.
A local clothing store Flavour has done something awesome, they’ve made Peterborough brand clothing and it’s awesome. The logo is simple but classic and the hoodies and tanks are extra comfortable.
So I went for a bike ride downtown and picked myself up a few shirts.
Thanks Peterborough Northern Originals for giving us another great reason to live in this unique city.

Day 736

People of the internet, a little vacation.

I was up at Ally’s cottage the last few days and had a blast. Drove up late on Wednesday and made it there just in time for dinner and a campfire. As it got late we even managed to get out the telescope and enjoy the starry night.

Thursday was crazy, we swam, ate, fished and took the boat out to go find a rope swing and rock wall to jump off. Then Friday we did it all again but had to call it a day after dinner and Ally and I drove home.

No cell service, but I did manage to sneak up the GoPro for some awesome looking jumping and swimming shots.  I may just save that for Ally and I, we’ll see.

Today I shared some cottaging pictures from the last few days.

Day 729
People of the internet, remember how small and dull the old gate was?
Now here’s how it is now. The new gate to the mausoleum/cemetery concept has two small walls, large pillars, a chained off gate and stone bats to top it off. Around the side there’s even a little treasure chest with bones and a skull left inside.
I love the look of the cobbled LEGO bricks, it definitely gives it an old and stone-built vibe. The zombie is there for extra effect and so you guys can see the dimensions.
I’m still working on the mausoleum and cemetery pieces and when it’s all done I think I’ll make a monster video showing off all the building techniques and little features.
Today I worked on the gate portion of the LEGO mausoleum concept.

Day 726
People of the internet, not quite the super moon.
But still pretty awesome. I took this shot with the telescope as the moon still hung low in the sky with that nice amber glow. It’s too bad it’s not 100% in the frame but I really don’t think it’s a huge deal after editing.
Today I took a picture of the rising moon.

People of the internet, remember that Will Ferrell and Chad Smith drum-off?
Ferrel used the opportunity to raise funds for Cancer for College, an organization that he’s involved with. So I donated and now a few weeks later…this!
Today I framed the Will Ferrel signed photo. Now to find some leather bound books…

Day 723

People of the internet, a quiet week.

It’s just been too busy with work to really do any great posts lately. I was on six days last week and now four days and two night-shifts this week.

I’m going to be feeling it on Sunday for sure.

So I’ve just been focusing on trying to get some sleep, eating right, seeing Ally and hanging out with some friends on my downtime. I have the day free tomorrow before I head to the hospital for a night-shift so I’m sure I’ll find something fun to blog about.

On another note, the two year mark of the blog came and went on July 8th, so technically we should be somewhere up in the Day 730’s if I did my math correctly.

I screwed up counting the posts somewhere…

Two years! How crazy is that? Other than the aerotrike flying the blog has really cooled down to posts about my day-to-day life this summer, biking, running, fishing, the garden…and I’m totally okay with that. I’ll try and make sure I liven things up once in a while with something a bit out of the ordinary when I can, but doing that crazy stuff isn’t a huge priority like it used to be.

But don’t worry, there will still be some awesome posts to come this summer, I’m sure of it.

So here’s to two years of going on runs, LEGO building, scuba diving, spelunking, fly fishing, snowboarding in Quebec, baking, biking, canoeing, music festivals, sledding, basketball, touring Las Vegas, aerotrike flying, Rubik’s Cube solving, turtle saving, skating, geocaching, playing guitar, antiquing, letter writing, tattooing, swimming and of course, blogging.

Today I talked about the two years of blogging.

Day 721
People of the internet, biking.
Just a quick bike ride this morning, I went to the post office, then to the Silver Bean for a glass of water and through downtown. Working up towards the long bike ride to work, maybe if the weather clears up I’ll try it later this week…
Today I went for a quick bike ride.

Day 719
People of the internet, it’s coming along.
What was a vampire bat’s tomb is now  a zombie mausoleum. I think I’ll call the whole concept ‘The Book of the Dead’.
You see, not only does the mausoleum roof come off to reveal a removable stone casket, but now the building is sitting on a small perch of rocks and will completely pivot back…to reveal a hidden chamber.
In the chamber is a stone altar with the book itself, used to raise the dead above it.
I’m still missing a few pieces and working on the pivot action but so far it’s coming along well.
Today I put some more work into the LEGO mausoleum concept.

People of the internet, more fishing!
My buddy James and I hit the road early this morning and headed out for an easy morning by the water. Just coffee and casting, was a great way to start the day.
Today I caught three fish at Gannons Narrows.

Day 718

People of the internet, more guitar stuff.

So I ordered a Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster body off Ebay and took some of my old parts to make a whole new guitar. The neck and hardware are from two separate parts-casters and now they’ve come together to form one nice looking lefty.

I even managed to do the soldering myself. I was super surprised to hear the pick-ups work when I plugged it in! It’s a bit noisy as there is no shielding but that’s for another day.

Today I finished putting together a custom Telecaster.
