Post 2426 - Saturday

Been a long day. 

I got up around 6 and left the house 45 minutes later.  I had breakfast at the Ardmore Tea Room.  I love that place.  I ordered the French Toast.  On Friday, Patricia and I went to the downtown Cora's.  I had French Toast there.  It cost twice as much and was about a tenth as good.  It was virtually inedible.  At the Tea Room, it was excellent.  The service is terrific.  Even the tap water is some of the best I have had.  I can see why it's been in business for several decades.

I drove to work and commenced my overtime day at 8am.  The task confronting me could not be performed during the work week, and not even really on Sunday.  I opted to do it today.  I'm glad I did, because the particular task I had to do took many hours.  It is not that hard to do; it is just beastly time consuming.  There were a couple bumps in the road that I fixed on my own, and that slowed things down a bit.  I was there until 4:30, having worked through lunch and only munching on crackers with cheese and tuna and energy bars throughout the day.

Around 9:30, I got an email from JC Douglas.  I had written him Friday evening to see how he was doing.  I didn't get a chance to write him back until my labours were completed.  Without revealing too much, he is in a good place and is looking forward to new challenges.  He wants to have an on air radio position, and he would be an excellent choice for any station that wants to hire a rollicking radio guy.   I selfishly hope that he is able to remain in Halifax.

I spent sometime this evening on Facebook, looking at the KOOL FM page.  Lots of people were pissed that Griff and Caroline are gone from the station.  I can only imagine their level of disappointment come Monday morning when that format ceases to exist and becomes what I think will be an alternative/modern rock format.  All the middle-aged housewives who like to listen to these classic hits from their youth will probably move over to Lite 92.9, or maybe even C100, if that station embraces that kind of music a bit more. 

I think that Monday the 26th will be a very interesting day in Halifax radio.  I'm kinda looking forward to it.

There's not much else to report.  I got home around 5:15.  Newbie was looking through the screen door as I drove in the drive way.  He had apparently been watching out for me for some time, somehow knowing that this was the weekend and that I should have been  home.  Sorry, bud.

This evening, Patricia and I started watching "da Vinci's Demons", a Showtime show picked up by Super Channel.  It is about the other Leonardo, da Vinci to be exact.  He is a guy who invents stuff and gets hired to be a military engineer so that he can develop weapons for his city.  He also solves crimes and womanizes and generally pisses off as many people as possible.  We love the show and can't wait to watch more episodes as soon as we can.

Tomorrow will be a busy day.  Some kind of wine tour I got corralled to going to will be in the afternoon.  I don't care for wine.  I don't "get" wine.  I have little interest in checking out wineries.  We will also visit my mother for a little while.  Probably get some veggies in the Valley before returning to Halifax before darkness settles across the land.

I guess that's it for tonight. 

See you tomorrow, my lovelies.
