highway numbers

I have the tiniest of time windows between Friday's return from the whirlwind Manitoba trip and Thursday's excursion off to Prince's Island for folk festival, in which to insert that giant spring back into the top of my head.

So in the finest lazy blogging tradition, I will simply throw a few road trip relevant numbers in your face and call it a conversation.

1 = number of watches forgotten at home
9 = roadkill deer
2.5 = number of hours that I made that 48 gm bag of M&Ms last
200 = number of kms in which I thought about that turkey and swiss sandwich
478 = paces to the outhouse

But if you want some actual words to read, may I offer you my latest article in BC Musician Magazine instead? (I don't have to tell you to click on it to enlarge it, do I?)

Haha, glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks obsessively about a good meal on the road. ;)

Happy trails!

Now I'm craving muffins. Thanks!

Hope you're able to get a bit of down time before all the Folk Festival shenanigans start.

When you have several hours of Saskatchewan highway still in front of you, you have to stretch out these culinary distractions to the max, SME. I think we would road trip together quite well!

I have some saskatoon muffin tops I can send you, Al. Long story...
I'm spending my days making sacrifices to the weather gods to ensure some proper folk festivalling weather.

Great article, Barb! I can just imagine you with a Don King hairdo! LOL! Actually, Mae Moore just came to town & played in someone's back yard! I couldn't go, though...:(

I doubt any of my fave metal bands would come to Rossland to stay with me...I'd be their only audience! Well, and Juno.


Okay that trip to the outhouse is about 477 paces too long, I'm not even sure that gorgeous view from your cottage window is worth it.


Forgot to add, hope the fricken weather improves before Folk Fest or you my dear will need your wellies and a bottle of detangler.

oh and PS I quit my job.

Thanks, WC, house concerts seem to be gaining in popularity, certainly. And hey, if you and Juno both buy a CD and you cook a couple of your fantastic meals, I'll bet you can lure some of your faves to Rossland.

Eventually we'll have indoor plumbing just like you fancy people, UB, and then there will be no more battling mosquitoes, mud, darkness, or bears to take that tinkle.

What? What happened? We need to catch up, UB. After folk fest and before the Germans arrive?
