We made it through another Hallowe’en without my wife getting arrested for scaring the ba-jeezuz out of the local children. I sometimes have thoughts that I’ll be explaining all of this to a psychiatrist one day. Anyhoo, all the best from my family to yours! Have a safe and happy Hallowe’en!!
Backwards roll, front handspring, one hand cartwheel, press handstand, back layout with half twist, round off, cartwheel, tuck jump, backwards roll to pike, 180 split leap. Just beautiful! Of course I’m talking about the other kids. Mine is doing none of these. She’s the fiery little 5 year-old blonde chick lying on the mat in the middle of the gym like a bag of wet […]
For the most part, my wife and I are polar opposites. Why we’re attracted to each other the way we are is sometimes beyond me considering how different we are. She’s a night owl. I’m a morning person. She’s a social butterfly. I’m an introvert. She retains medical knowledge like a Cardiothoracic Anesthesiologist. I can’t even pronounce “Cardiothoracic Anesthesiologist”. What we do have in common […]
One of the reasons I got married was so I wouldn’t have to work so hard to get a date. I know it sounds ridiculous but it’s the hand-on-the-bible, hail Mary full of grace, God’s honest truth. Not because my lovely wife ever has second thoughts about going out with me (God, I hope she doesn’t have to think twice), but now that I’m married […]
KD MACK’S JOURNAL: VACATION – DAY 1: So far none of the other people in the neighbourhood have noticed I’m on vacation. I think I’ll keep it this way because it’s low profile and I’ve always wanted to use the term, “I’m keeping a low profile”. Went running this morning. Tried to beat my 5km time record. I almost succeeded but I got a call […]
Just a big ol’ FYI. I think I fixed my old art gallery. You’ll find oodles of doodles and samples of my artwork. And before you ask, even though there is a commissioned artwork section in my gallery, I don’t do commissions anymore. So, even if you say, “please” I’ll still say “no.” But I’ll let you down easy. My art is just my way of decompressing […]
I’ve done some questionable things in my life. OK, some of them were downright awful. But I’ve moved forward and accepted the fact that there will be a special place in Hell waiting for me. The wait ended May 1st, 2016. It was a crisp and clear spring morning. My wife and I took the kids up to Wasaga Beach to the spend the weekend […]
Today marks my 47th year on this earth. On October1st, 1969 at 4:30 (Atlantic Time) I came into the world at 8 pounds, 14 ounces, 21 inches tall. Yes, 21 inches. My dreams of making the neonatal basketball team were dashed that day by 3 inches. Regardless, here I am, a lot taller, a lot heavier and with a helluva lot more life experience. It […]
