Walked around Balboa Park. Gave a 50 cent coin to a magician, maybe he’ll use it in his act in the future. Got lost, found my wag son after crossing a bridge. Saw another Apollo command module, this was 9 Gumdrop.
Woke at 5am to some man yelling help a few blocks away. Police were on scene, hopefully he wanted their help.
Ate supper at Guadalajara restaurant in Old Town, before returning to Mission Beach.
Robert and I appeared on the big screen in the outfield briefly. Two clothed streakers were on the field. 8-0 for the Royals. Got our tickets on sale for $25 together.
Boogie boarded today in the Pacific. The water was very cold but I went in a couple times.
Supper last night.
Tonight was El Indio, a fish taco.
Saturday morning at 3:50 was wakeup time to be at the airport on time for the first flight to Calgary. Everything went smoothly and we were in San Diego by lunch time.
In and Out burger for supper.
Sunday rented car and went to Santa Monica via PCH part of the way.
Ran into Darcy twice.
Saskatoon is a beautiful city, so don’t let these photos fool you. Every city has a few shiners here and there. “There”, in this case, is downtown.
This is the Holiday Inn Supermax Prison. Don’t worry, it only looks like a prison from the outside. You can leave, unlike the more picturesque Hotel California.
Here’s one of the more beautiful parkades with a cell phone tower behind it.
It’s January, and the snow has retreated into puddles due to the unseasonal temperatures, but the gang activity hasn’t retreated.
The people of Saskatoon are friendly, and will accommodate you whether you’re addicted to tobacco or real estate.
The Sturdy Stone isn’t going to see you, so you should go see it.
The HMCS Unicorn will be grinning at you when you walk by.
Yesterday I ate fruit cake my Mum made for her wedding, and it still tasted good. Few people get to eat food older than they are, and can say they enjoyed it.
One of the greatest things to come out of the 70s was me. Another of those great things was this cake. Both made, in part, by my Mum.
I learned more about the 1970s too by looking in a photo album. Here’s Bengough’s water tower accident. Mum said a vehicle was crushed, and the rink got clipped, but no one was hurt.
I helped invent and host a city bus tour to a movie theatre from the Riddell Centre on Tuesday evening. It went very well, even though our bus was 20 minutes late when first leaving. The weather was astoundingly perfect, and the ten people who went all seemed to enjoy the evening very much. I think UR Sustainability Club will organize another tour like this one, later this semester.
Half of the group saw “Elysium” [7/10] a futuristic movie about a man dying to get to a satellite habitat where magical medical technology can heal nearly anything. The other went to the World’s End, or something like that. They seemed shocked by what they saw. The movie I saw was alright, but probably won’t watch it again.
