Introducing Mr. Camus

My new walking buddy …

I used to laugh at people who bought clothes for their dogs ... now I am one.

Time for change …

I think it might be time to do something different with this blog.


I haven’t disappeared, but, since the early days of this year, I have dedicated almost all of my free time to learning French. I am also busy rereading the entire works of Albert Camus, one of my favourite authors, in English. My goal, this year, is to become proficient enough in French that I can begin to read all of Camus’ work in the original French next year.

Having said that, I have been out hiking/birdwatching a number of times and have already added  28 new species to my Wild Bird List this year.

Well, back to the books …

Season’s Greetings!

Towhee in Santa HatThanks to all of those who followed my blog this year. I’ve enjoyed your comments, tweets and emails. I hope you have a great holiday season. Cheers!

A little update . . .

The duck tea has been slow in coming. My apologies. I’ve been somewhat preoccupied with the technical side of things and working out the various little annoyances thereof. Even more so, I’ve been preoccupied with my latest outdoor interest, chasing down steelhead on the Vedder. Unfortunately, the steelhead have also been slow in coming. One old boy I met on the river last week referred to them as “the fish of a thousand casts.” I must be getting close. The fish and the blog will come.
