Forrest, but not Gump

 I sent a package to a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia today - I notice the street address was Forrest, very likely named after Nathan Bedford Forrest, Confederate General and first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

Oh no, O.G.!

 "O.G (sic) Simpson is dead." - CBC Radio One, Ottawa. I remember watching the O.J. chase on TV and chatting about it online on a BBS.

Total solar eclipse April 8, 2024


Wow! As soon as the sun broke from behind the moon, it was like being on a movie set with a spotlight on you! Very unnatural! I did not see the approaching shadow, but it was a bit overcast. 
Started around 2.12pm



Some sunspots are visible

Winter's thunderous return




Sudden return of winter! I heard thunder when the wind was blowing harder.

I got a new cat. I named it Krystal after my late friend who died on this day two years ago.

Easter Sunday Swimmers

 I saw the woman in a cow outfit crossing the street and I figured they were just going to take pictures - they actually were going to swim - the man went in and said the water burned. Swimmers, Glen Walter,Ontario March 31, 2024.
