“How do you feel about the potential of having Jack Layton as our next Prime Minister?” I asked.
There were several occasions when we sat around the dinner table discussing politics and the election. Dylan’s class participated in a video conference a couple of days ago with Liberal MP Justin Trudeau. Not surprisingly, he came home demonstrating a particularly strong Liberal bias as we discussed things over supper. I believe Dylan has the capacity to lead; he certainly shows a keen interest in the affairs of state and of the world.
We announced the biggest concert in Fort McMurray history a few weeks ago, as Events Wood Buffalo inked a deal with KISS to play here on July 2nd. The show went on sale yesterday at noon and sold out in 24 frenetic minutes. I’m not sure whether I’m a pessimist or realist, but I was not initially convinced that we’d be able to sell the show out at all. But in 1440 seconds I was proven unequivocally wrong. I’m so pleased. It’s a million dollar show and I’m relieved that all the expenses will be covered.
Now that the river has broken and water is flowing on the Athabasca, I’ve been able to get out and enjoy some early season fishing. Unfortunately, our regular spot is inaccessible owing to some construction, so I’ve been relegated to a rather unproductive spot on the other side of the river. That said, I’ve managed to catch a couple of small burbot, so I shouldn’t complain.
