reading my poems at the Upper Crust Café. Today I am honoured to be the host for my doctors’/my wife’s and daughter’s employers’ Farewell Party. They are deservedly retiring and will be hard to replace. Great guys; I have been very lucky to have them looking out for me for the past 4 decades.

Tomorrow the grandsons will land for a visit which is always an exhausting, but rewarding/renewing workout. And Monday I am back at the Upper Crust to host the program and to read poems by my old departed Spiritus reading partners: Glen Kirkland and Dean McKenzie. Should be a slice. Still hard to believe they’re gone several years now.
