Young Geoffrey now pushing 50 [Feb. 6th, 2012|01:33 am]

Thanks to those of you who wished me a happy anniversary of birth — it was.

The whole week was a good one, the highlights including an outing in Gatineau Park on snowshoes (I am the bigfoot-like creature at left), finally getting out onto the canal and dining Sri Lankan style.

And also, a Mysterious Ottawa Valley Apparition, caught on camera by the one and only Phantom Photographer, who was able to attend this year's Winterlude opening ceremony, while I laboured on this week's edition of True North Perspective.

Cut to spare those uninterested in my personal blatherings. If you want them, or the striking photo of the Ottawa Valley's no-longer mythical Dance of the Winter Turkeys/Danse des dindes d'hiver come to spectral life, click here.

*stifles giggle* You do look vaguely Bigfoot-like. (Who took the picture, though?) I think it's the dress-in-black effect.

As an apologetic aside, though, happy belated birthday! Glad you had a nice time.

Who indeed

The photographer was Raven, of course. She is seldom without her camera.

And by the way, the post really wasn't designed to elicit congratulatory replies. I seldom manage to wish others a happy birthday, so I don't expect it, either. Not that I mind it, of course!

Re: Who indeed

Oh, I thought she was the half-seen one in white. If you don't mind me asking, then who's that?

And, well, congratulations are always in order :)

Thanks

As per the subject-line. And also, I approve of your attitude on capital punishment.

Re: Thanks

Thanks :)

It's weird; I hadn't put a ton of thought into it, but for the last few years it's been reallllly bothering me. Yay for awareness?
