Man, I'm relieved

I just got back from producing an on-location hour of TV from outside Scotiabank Place. A-Channel News Live From Your Neighbourhood: Kanata was a resounding success.
Aside from interviews with people from Kanata including someone from the local art gallery, the two city councillors who represent Kanata and a representative of the Chamber of Commerce, we featured The Capital City Chorus. It is a 97-member, all-male acapella barbershop style group, and it totally made the show.
I'm basking in the success of my first-ever effort at producing such a program. Tired, but very happy.

My pride is showing -- again

This handsome young couple is Little Bro Dan (a.k.a. Dano) and his fiancée, Christine (a.k.a. The Pretty One).
They're getting married next April in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I will be his Best Man.
They live in Timmins, where he works as a paramedic and she works as membership coordinator and receptionist at a gym, while she completes a Human Resources course to combine with her B.A. in psychology.
Here's why my pride is showing this time around: This young couple, who both turn 26 later this year, is in the process of buying their first home together. They have decided that they're wasting money on rent; done their homework; and are now buying a beautiful little bungalow in Timmins.
See why I'm proud? Does it show?

Okay, who DO I look like?

My Mom's pic is in the last post. Here's Dad:

This is my favourite pic of my Dad. My friend Cathy took it a couple of summers ago. It just totally captures my Dad, doing one of his favourite things in one of his favourite places: having an after-supper cup of tea at the kitchen table at the cottage.

On Mother's Day, I think of my Mom even more often than I do every day
