Walked down to my office a couple of days ago and found a distress note slipped under my door. Eliott and Jade were trapped in Art Camp and in desperate need of food and drink. I fear I was too late as by the time I got the note Art Camp had finished for the summer. Alas for Eliott and Jade.

Ottawa - March 28 the i -deal coffee shop. the spot where I read the Ottawa Citizen article about the end of the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography as an entity separate from the National Gallery. Apparently the Harper government wants the CMCP building to use as office space. I wonder when Harper will tell the National Gallery to move out because he wants that building for his walk - in closet. March 27 - 9.26km, 28 - 15.05km, 29 - 9.86km. Back in Lethbridge.

Remarkably warm weather, above freezing for a couple of weeks - well above freezing. Seemed like every motorcycle in town was out last Sunday. Walking mostly between parking lot and office at the University with occasional breaks walking around the parents basement in Calgary, carrying boxes of junk. Attended the Ukulele All Stars session last night, I'm more than a little rusty.
Jan 21 - 10.84km Walking in and out of the university a good part of the day teaching pinhole photo in my intro class. Always a pleasant part of the class. The weather was perfect for pinhole, very bright, sunny and warm. Tomorrow is snow and plunging temperatures.

Walked in a couple of suburbs and in the downtown area. Saw an exhibition at Trépanier-Baer, The Puppet Collective by Graeme Patterson. Went to my folks house and went into the basement - mistake. Lots of work there.
Jan 05 - 11.62km Jan 06 -7.42km Jan07 - 9.81km Jan o8- 7.32km Back walking in Lethbridge. Lots of snow - huge snow for Lethbridge. There is no snow removal as the city prefers to wait until a chinook arrives for a melt. This has resulted in considerable disruption in driving and walking. Deep snow and ice on all roads and sidewalks.
