days with ronalda

After returning to Halifax from Cornwallis, I met up with the incomparable Arthur Bull who I met up on The Learning Circles Project. It was great to catch up and talk about the stuff we have been learning lately.

The next day my cousins, the inestimable Ronalda and her equally inestimable husband David came to meet me. They took me for lunch at Boneheads

and to Pier 21.

We went back to their home in Bedford for a scallop dinner (Ronalda bought the scallops because I had no scallops in Digby - you see what a good cousin she is)

and then to the casino

to see ANDY KIM!

My cousin has some juice. She met Andy Kim the day before and he had given her some tickets for the show. It was great. He has a lovely stage presence and is touring with a really talented and charming band. Oh, and the songs are good too. He played all the old favourites and some new soon-to-be favourites.

The next day Ronalda took me to Mount Uniacke (to enjoy a coffee by the lake and stories of days gone by), Windsor (to see the church where my Grandfather was a minister) and Lunenburg (to walk by the sea and eat a lobster roll).

Thank you Ronalda and David for another beautiful set of days and good laughs for the memory bank.
