To describe the midsummer day as sweltering would be an understatement. The thermometer had soared past 35° C shortly after noon. At 5:30 p.m. I’m slouched in one of two big wicker chairs on the porch of a 100-year-old log cabin.
First day of spring, 2013, blows in on the heels of a late winter blizzard. The past two weeks were so mild, it’s hard to believe that winter isn’t finished with us yet. It all reminds of last November’s chill.
Biggest infrastructure project in Saskatoon’s history just hours away from opening. Perfect excuse for a parade, party and cake.
A broken spoke can really wreck your day. That’s why there are sag wagon drivers. On GASP 2013, the rain couldn’t dampen spirits.
Memories of the last day of operation of Kinsmen Park. The carousel will be restored like it was new, but the little train will be gone forever. A new, fancier one will replace it. And a big Ferris wheel, too.
I really enjoyed that warm September day in 2011 when we found that cookbook at Crawford’s Used Books, in Perdue, 60 km west of Saskatoon.
