I Have the Best Ex

Emil slows down long enough for a photo before his dad takes him to Camp Easter Seal.

Gord came all the way from Edmonton to spend some time with Emil, who is on holidays till the end of the week, and then shouldered the driving duty to get the lad to his favourite place in the world (Camp Easter Seal). I'll pick Emil up Thursday; he'll be far from ready to leave.


"And what about the strange incident he had seen at home the other day, when his cat gazed intently into a tree until a bird fell out of it, dead, right between her paws?"
~From How to Live, or A Life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts at an Answer, by Sarah Bakewell.


  1. It is great Emil is spending time with his Dad. Tell Emil to call me when he is back home.

  2. Funny you should say that, Sheila, because he wanted to phone you at 8:30 Saturday morning, before they left, and we told him it might be too early. He was sure you'd be up, but we weren't, so ...
    I'll definitely pass on your message.
