I won’t let winter defeat me



I know it’s Monday morning but I need to put you to work right off the bat. Easter is approaching and with it, the Lenten season. If you are not a catholic, proceed to paragraph two. I’m looking for ideas on some of the things that you “gave up” during Lent. Don’t send me the obvious ones like sweets and liquor. I know you are more imaginative than that.

One of my goals at the start of the year was to put on a show, similar to “The Vinyl Café.” If you are not a CBC radio fan, you won’t recognize the program. It is a weekly radio show with host and writer, Stuart McLean. He is a wonderful story teller and humourist. His show features stories and music. Besides the radio show, he tours the country and does a live version of the show. I hope to do something similar in late April with all proceeds going to charity. I have already received a verbal commitment from a very well known author and will have no trouble lining up some top notch music. The show will be called “Week45 Express.” Stay tuned.

We had great fun at the dinner theatre last weekend and raised some money for the library to boot. The Harbor Players put on a great show. Lots of laughs and a superb meal. Check them out if you get the chance. I was in charge of selling 50/50 tickets which was probably one of the easiest jobs going. I had a lot of fun travelling from table to table selling “winning tickets” only. During dinner, I was sitting at a table with fellow board members and it seemed that none of us were particularly lucky when it came to winning anything. This prompted me to write a story called “ A 50/50 Proposition.”

Are you as tired as me hearing about someone else’s flu? It kind of goes hand in hand with winter. I once believed that hockey was our national pastime but now I am thoroughly convinced that complaining about the weather and bitching about the flu have overtaken hockey. It is not that I am unsympathetic or uncaring, but it’s just one of those things that we have to endure.

Coming up this Wednesday is my story about glasses. Despite all the modern advances of contact lenses and laser surgery, glasses wearers are still in the majority. The next time you’re in a large group, take a look around. Just about everybody ( over the age of 50 anyway ) wears glasses. The story is called “Mine Eye Have Seen The Glory.”

From “ 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do”… “They don’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves.”

Have a great week. See if you can make someone smile today.
