I’m Back…

I’m Back…

Just about one month ago, very early in the morning before my eyes were completely open, I managed to destroy ALL OF THE CONTENT of the Trail lady blog. Almost 10 years of writing was destroyed. I know, I couldn’t believe it either so I spent more than a week trying to recover it before […]

Lost! I Love my Town (Pinawa)

I thought I was done with teenagers, but then Pete brought his beautiful yellow lab Marshmallow home for Christmas. Turns out Marshmallow, at 6 months old, is just entering those teen years in doggy terms.  Pete had pretty good control of him before he got here, but I guess we’ve been a little too lax […]

No doubt consumers don’t want to pay more for anything BUT, who should? I do consider myself somewhat of an expert in this […]


If you work for a company for 35 years and retire they have a dinner for you and buy you a gold watch, or a fishing rod – depending on how important you were. If you own a business you spend months, or maybe years, negotiating a sale and negotiating details.  You are done running […]

The Boy in the Park

It was my first rainy Tucker walk this morning, rainy enough for me to force the dog into his hated rain jacket. Victoria is a privileged society and we don’t let our dogs get wet. I had to drag him to Saxe Point, he hates the rain. As we walked through the trails in the […]
