Post 3365 - Saturday

After one am on Sunday.

Saturday morning, we drove to the other part of the province to meet the father and brother of the person who went missing all those years ago. Patricia was there with me and felt the emotion of the moment along with me.

After we talked, we drove out to where the person was last seen. The father dropped off the loved one, who walked around the corner and was never seen again. The father pulled a U turn in the empty lot. I shot video and took pictures of the apartment building from the outside, got video and pics of the place that used to be the vacant lot and which is now a condo building.

And after we said our goodbyes, the father and his other son left us, by doing a U-turn in the parking lot of the building, just like he did in 1998.

It was about 1:30 by the time we finished, so we drove to a restaurant and grabbed a bite before returning to the city. We purchased some groceries at Superstore in Bayer's Lake before coming back home around 4:15.

We watched the first episode of a U.K. crime series on Netflix called Shetland. After that I was so tired, drained from the experience of talking to this man and his son about his missing child, that I had to take a nap. After I got up, around 9, we watched the second part of that show, and then two more episodes.

Sheland takes place on the Sheland Islands in Scotland. We have to have the subtitles on as they speak in an accent that is impenetrable by times, and the characters lapse into Gaelic phrases. It is a detective series mostly set in a town called Lerwick, where an inordinate number of murders takes place relative to its population.

It makes me wonder why nobody has ever done a similar television series set in Halifax. Phonse Jessome has written a crime novel taking place here. Anne Emery continues to write mystery novels set in Halifax. Phonse's series is likely going to be much grittier than Emery's, but that is just me guessing.

It is now past 1:30. When I get up I have to do a fair amount of work on this missing persons case. I have a tight deadline to finish a couple of tasks by the end of the day.

You have a good evening.

Talk at ya later.
