Hangin' Out with Shelly

Shelly, one of my Katimavik roomies, on her backyard deck
Oh sure, it looks like all we did was sit around and gab, and drink. And we did do a lot of gabbing. And some drinking, but not overly so. And while we were at Shelly's we also went for numerous walks around Ho Hum Crescent, where she is building her plantation.


  1. I didn't know you'd had the Katimavik experience. Everyone I know who did Katimavik said it changed them and opened their horizon. My sister Mary, our youngest sibling, was part of it in 1979, and it still is with her.

    That backyard looks so perfect---the rock wall especially

    1. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times ... LOL. Some of my dearest friends now are from those days, back in -- I think it was 78/79. And for sure it was an eye-opener to meet, live and work with people from across the country, and to see some of the country at the same time. A one-of-a-kind experience, methinks, and my memories of it are precious to me.
