Episode 283 - The Other Side of Christmas Might Be Cool


So, we’re back from a whirlwind camping trip to Cooper Harbor Michigan. It’s the home of Mike, the Virtual Yooper, and Chris or the Yooperette.…

When we arrived Mike set up a microwave wifi network for us…. Cuz, like, that’s how he rolls.

It turned out that one of our tires on the trailer needed to be replaced, so of course Mike did that.

We went to a lighthouse!

We drank beer and gin.

Isabelle went to Art in the Park with Chris.

Jon mostly stayed in the trailer.

Mike made his famous Pad Thai.

Plus, we passed Scarborough dude, on his way to Copper Harbour. Seriously.

Thanks Musiels, you’re awesome people.

Episode 282 - I've Had All of the Gin


An extra stop today as we had to return empties for the first time since June or so.

Isabelle and Jon had the opening of their show in Blind River. It was great! To celebrate, yesterday we went out for dinner.

We’ve been watching an Australian cooking show on Netflix called ‘The Chef’s Line’ which is pretty good, though Isa is not much on the episodes about the restaurants. We’ve been spoiled by the likes of Bourdain and Chang.

Isabelle is still thinking about her art podcast. Any name ideas?

The cashier at the grocery store noticed that we went later than usual…..

Episode 281 - Buckets of Gesso With Dirty Pants Michaud


Pretty great title right?

We’ve been remodelling a room, which is fun. The real fun is finding old stuff and then wondering if you should keep it and where.

Isabelle and Jon have a show coming up in Blind River. I don’t. I’ll go though.

It’s pretty warm today, and Monday is a holiday, so, the LCBO was packed. Still, no problem getting in and out in the space of a song.

Isabelle explained to me how artist fees work.

Looks like there’ll be an art burning tonight!
