At long last, summer was finally here
For those who long to spend their days lying on a towel down at the Beach Strip, splashing in a lake or an outdoor pool and using the temperature as an excuse to gorge on ice cream, this summer has been a season of bitter disappointment. Adding insult to injury, it followed a bitterly cold winter that seemed to last for 10 months and cover us all in seven or eight metres of snow.

Back-to-school isn’t what it used to be
It’s been 14 years since I had my last back-to-school, and while the first September out in “the real world” was quite tough, now the beginning of September to me just means a rent cheque, Burlington’s RibFest and Labour Day football.

Of old friends in new times
It had been years since the three of us had been in the same room. There was no big reason for it. No knock-down, drag-out fight. No acts of betrayal. No financial partnerships gone awry. It was just that life had caused us to drift apart the way it often does when no one’s watching.

Barry Coe is singing a brand new ‘Summer Song’
This summer is my first as a retiree and I must confess it’s been a unique one. I’ve been amazed at how quickly time passes. One day folds into another and then a week has gone by. There seems to be a new urgency to do things and enjoy them because you now realize that time is not infinite.
