The newspaper is being delivered to my door again. I put the longest vacation stop on it that they’d allow (even though I’m not on a REAL vacation, just an extended pretend one living alone with nobody to care about but myself), and already it’s back, and already today I’ve spent too much time flipping through it. Practicing my sneery face of disdain because there’s never anything worth reading in there.
Except for these two things. Yes, TWO! I couldn’t believe it either.
It’s not the actual article I read because I get the Edmonton Journal which reprinted theirs from the Los Angeles Times. I think the Calgary Herald, being closest to home should be the best source for this feel-good story. Anyway, the facts appear to be the same. So all of you young moms out there writing about your life experiences, take heart! You have a huge audience that genuinely wants to hear what you have to say. Even if it ultimately ends up being only your grown up kids who read it, searching your blog trying to pinpoint when exactly it was that you lost your sanity.
The other article in the “Arts and Life” section (stuck in amongst the Disasters and Death and Sports pages letting us know that there are idiots out there still playing hockey even though it’s nearly July) was a picture of the reunited Beach Boys to feature their album “That’s Why God Made the Radio”. They will be performing at the Calgary Saddledome on July 11th. Why is Calgary having all the fun?
Those guys are OLD (-er than me, even.) This is their first new material in 20 years.
They are still very sharp dressers.
Reliving the glory days. Good for them.
