Home and Garden Show always a lot of fun


Between the Home & Garden Show, the final few Spruce Kings broadcasts, starting to get things ready for our lacrosse broadcasts, and some other minor details of life, I didn’t have a lot of time to think of a solid topic for this week.

That mean (you guessed it) Random Ramblings.

  • The Home & Garden Show at the Kin Centres was, as always, a lot of fun. We had a number of volunteers step up to attend the booth, which meant that some of the veterans (myself included) were able to cut back on the time spent there. It’s always nice to see familiar faces, whether from interviews I’ve done in the past or just people I know. It was also interesting how many of the people who dropped by to renew their memberships in the society knew their membership was expiring soon, because they always renewed it at the show. I know we always have people at the BCNE who have the same arrangement.
  • Time now for the annual guessing game for people who go by the corner of 18th Avenue and Foothills Boulevard: When will the huge mound of dirty snow collected by the city over the winter disappear? Part of the problem, of course, is that the snow is dirty, which makes it tougher for the sun to work on melting it.
  • The word I’m hearing is that Masich Place Stadium is still a few weeks away from opening. There’s still a few little jobs to do to finish things up, but, my word, that field looks gorgeous now that the snow is gone.
  • I’ve just realized it’s only eight months to Christmas and I haven’t even started my shopping.
