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 228 - Art Retreat, Hell I Just Got Here!


So this one is out a bit earlier than usual on Saturday because we recorded it on a little shuttle mission between camping at Pancake Bay provincial Park and home.  

Isabelle is on an art retreat this weekend up by Lake Superior.  Jon and I came for night one, but once the arting starts, it's time for us to head home.  Plus, Jon is not much on anywhere that doesn't have wifi....

We talked about art of course, about how the Group of Seven are hacks (at least as far as I'm concerned) and how the world is a really small place.  Turns out that the person Isabelle is retreating with has a daughter who I taught back in the 90s, and she also knows two guys that my brother teaches at Fanshawe.  Wild.

Episode 175 - Sad Eyeball Punch

Hey, we're back!

We were away camping last weekend, so no podcast.  We went camping with Isabelle's sister Julie.  She was visiting to help celebrate Isabelle's 50th birthday.  It was a pretty casual affair as you can probably imagine.  Basically some friends, a fire, and 48 sliders of various types.

The camping trip was fun, though Jon wants internet, always.  Our friend David visited us during the trip as well.

So, we're looking after a dog.  A dog that looks like Johnny Depp on a bad day, right?

Isabelle is worried about getting dementia, I'm more concerned about living a life worth living.

All that said, not knowing that you own a comforter is odd....

Hopefully the art dept will be back on campus in September, though I have my doubts.
