    Cat Basketball


    September 26, 2022. Actually, Charlemagne was chasing a fly or moth or something. In addition to being polydactyl, with giant opposable thumbs, he also very agile on his hind legs. Today was kind of a quiet day, doing one presentation, getting another one ready, and documenting a third that I…

    Wasp and White Flowers


    September 25, 2022. Fall flowers were out in the Reveler Conservation Area, where we went for a short walk today (couldn’t do a lot after a late night return from football). My camera ran out of power after three photos, so I relied on my phone, which was a bit…

    September 24, 2022. This was the high point of an absolute dog of a football game (though the Argos played really well and their fans should be proud). 42 of the 45 points scored by the Argos were scored on RedBlacks turnovers, including (I think) five interceptions. The first two…

    Sentier Iroquois


    September 11, 2022. The is the river along the Sentier Iroquois near Duhamel, Quebec. It’s an area of rugged beauty. Andrea and I went for what turned out to be a strenuous 8 km hike up to the falls and back on a sweltering late summer day. A lot of…

    September 10, 2022. We were at a rare Saturday afternoon RedBlacks game (I would really prefer more afternoon games). Yes it was another loss, but we came within about 5 yards of winning this one. The losses have been (mostly) close all season, as though we’re just a grasp away…

    St Lawrence River


    September 3, 2022. Cycled this beautiful Saturday 112 km to the St. Lawrence River and back (note my 2022-365 pictures are all out of order because of my 3-week gap while in Anticosti, but I’m still taking them and uploading them). https://flic.kr/p/2nJYwqu
