Lucky

I’m feeling nostalgic I was listening to some songs on You Tube. Funny, Ever listen to a song you haven’t heard for a long time and remember all the words? I was listening to a Mike And The Mechanics song The Living Years. I think all of us who have fathers who have passed can […]

Les Amours Imaginaires

On the weekend I went to see a new movie, Les Amours Imaginaires. This movie,  is by La Belle Province’s latest homegrown genius,  Xavier Dolan. He made a movie last year,  that had great critical international success,  J’ais Tué Ma Mere. Les Amours Imaginaires, does not suffer from the sophomore jinx, it is Sublime. A must […]

Is the blog the modern day diary?

 “If a man has no constant lover who shares his soul as well as his body, he must have a diary—a poor substitute, but better than nothing. That is all there is to it in my case” James Lees-Milne I read this quote recently in a book review and thought to myself,  I have to […]

Of longing for cool weather, hockey and vacation

The heat is making me crazy. Aside from a few days of cool and clement weather,  it has been sticky and humid since June, and if it hasn’t, it sure feels that way! Not only is it hot but, it’s so bloody noisy. I live in the city, inner city,  where people have postage stamp […]

I really enjoy our exchanges and conversations.  Sometimes they can be quite intense,  sometimes on the borderline of rocky,  other times over the […]

Full moon ramblings on beer, the bionic woman and rejection

The humidity is back. Ugh! I can’t sleep I’m so tense and honestly, I”m exhausted. The pipe problem is fixed.  Hallelujah. A minimum of damage,  it’s a little bit smelly but, everybody says they can’t smell it. I am known for my bionic nose, remember Jamie Summers, the bionic woman,  very hot, especially when she […]

Of lakes and pools and beautiful women

I had a great day.  All my customers, without exception, were in a great mood and complimentary. The AC after a cleaning, seems OK– fingers firmly crossed that it lasts through the summer. My landlord, a nice guy but, usually the clueless type,  said I looked rested and that my new glasses made me look […]

Isabelle the first and hopefully not the last

The summer heat has been upon us for a while and it has been exhausting.   When I was a little kid I used to go to summer camp for a few weeks every summer,  this went on for 3 or 4 years. For an only child this was not the easiest of experiences , […]

It is soooo Hot

We are having a heat wave in Montreal,  actually the entire eastern part of North America is smog and heat.  I have been in most of the day-  I hate the heat,  and I didn’t have much to do (day off). A friend gave a copy of,  Back To Basics- A Butch-Femme Anthology. This book […]
