In case you didn’t catch the words ‘virtual trip’ in my trip to Dallas – this is a confession that I did not leave Winnipeg and stayed in the frigid temperatures with way too much snow.  Chester and I had our walks in -20’s C temperatures with the ‘feels…

I don’t have a lot of time to spend in Dallas, so didn’t waste any time in jumping right in.  My friend Donna gave me some tips on places to see and I was going to spend my time seeing them. After spending 20 hours in the car driving,…

I almost got lost leaving Kansas City.  I thought I-29 went all the way, but it seems to end here and I am now on I-49 and still heading south.  I only have about 7 more hours of driving and we will be in Texas.  🙂 Chester is still…

Weekend Trip – On The Road

As mentioned last week – I am on my way to Texas for the weekend.  I finished work at 5:00 pm yesterday and Chester and I were on our way immediately.  I am looking for some warm weather and I’m going to find it. At 7:00 pm, we were at the Canada/US border.  We had… Continue reading Weekend Trip – On The Road


Have you ever noticed how short the weekends are compared to the work week? Of course, the work week is longer than the weekend (5 days to 2 days), but in reality, the weekend seems much shorter than it should be. I have a decent job – the pay isn’t great, but I work with… Continue reading Weekends

Weekend Thoughts

The temperature was -1C when I got up this morning and it has dropped to -3C by 8:30 am.  It will be dropping more by evening and then it looks like we head back into the deep freeze again.  It was nice while it lasted and we got rid of quite a bit of snow.… Continue reading Weekend Thoughts

It Warmed Up

OK, its warm enough in Manitoba now – I can go home.  Currently it is -9C and going up it -1C today  🙂  Time to start driving home from Texas.  That was a nice little vacation and it didn’t cost me a penny.  😉  Thanks for letting me stay at your place Donna!  Sure hope… Continue reading It Warmed Up

Texas in Manitoba

What a drive.   Here in Texas (in my dreams), it is a pleasant 23C under a sunny sky.  🙂  Back in Winnipeg it is -23C with a windchill of -34C.  The weather people can tell me all they like, that there is heavy snowfall between Winnipeg and Texas and that Texas has snow and ice… Continue reading Texas in Manitoba
