I maybe a paddling geek but I do LOVE my (canadian and american style) football! A university team (I support) and two pro teams were playing this long weekend. Its been a long time since I was able to watch three days of football in a row, it was really nice that all three teams won too. A nice way to start off the long weekend I think.
Sunday, I just hung out with my Mom and brother by going though some boxes of my late grandfolks. Its been three years since they passed on, but we just haven’t gotten around to sorting some of their boxes that were from a filing cabinet. One of the great fines was a 12 page typed written story with some handwritten notes from late great uncle about a week long a canoe trip that he took with my uncle back in the late 60′s. I never got a chance to meet him but from the stories I heard about my great uncle he was interesting character and being blind never stopped him do anything either.
Holiday Monday was gonna be a day of relaxing, and re-organizing my computer desk but I noticed my site’s counter showed my site had a few unwanted visitors (spider-bots and spammers) so spent a good hour and a bit fixing that problem. If you’re unsure about having a site counter you really should get one. Nile’s latest post explains why you should get one.
How was your long weekend?
