Watching the mountains melt into flatlands is really amazing.
What’s more amazing is trying to remember what it was like to live somewhere so flat. I always forget how f-n flat it is here. *laugh* You can watch your dog run away for 3 days... they say. Ahh Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan. There’s no place like Saskatchewan.
My girlfriend Leslie(of 30 years) picked me up and we drove to our old highschool. What an out of body experience it is to visit your old school. So weird. I can’t even explain it, but when the bell rang I got goose pimples. *laugh*
I went to the school to visit with my favorite teacher... say hello and give him a copy of LDV. What a lovely man he is. Even remembered who I was... and I graduated 20 years ago. *yikes* I guessI kind of stuck out from all the rest.
**Please take note of the AMAZING pink stole that Claire made me. It's hot!! Wait till you see my muff! :)
Then Leslie and I went back to her house and we had some homemade chili she made me from HIAV (what a good friend) and then we hopped in the car and headed down to The Globe to see my Dad’s play.
The theater has changed quite a bit since the last time I was there. New foyer, new bathrooms, the offices are on a different floor now... but the theater is still the same. It's a theater in the round, if you're a little confused. This is my childhood people!! I grew up here watching actors act and directors direct and watching my Mum and Dad take care of it all.
My Dad was phenomenal. What a powerhouse of an actor he is... He works mostly in film and tv now... but when he’s on stage he’s just a superstar. It was such a treat to see him in this show and to watch him kill. He just killed and the audience gave him a well deserved standing-o.
Hopped into bed and woke up ready to hit the airport and get to Toronto. I can’t wait to see Shoshana and celebrate her birthday.

Getting up at 5am makes me cranky... the flight from Van to Regina wasn’t long... but holy mother of crap was ever tired.
