Memo to JamieWho [Feb. 9th, 2016|10:57 pm]
Young Geoffrey
[Tags|, , ]

I received notice of your (belated) unconventional birthday greeting on Sunday morning. It was a surprise and good one, so thank you very much.

This is acknowledgement is also belated, but I can explain!

Raven had insisted on (also belated) a birthday weekend for the two of us, and so it was that we were about to head off to the wilds of Eastern Quebec (Trois Rivieres, to be precise), the better to engage in forest-skating.

By way of proofs, may I present the following photo, cropped, but not otherwise altered in any way!

If you were wondering, the ice was in really nice shape and we had a very good time, on and off of it.

No guilt crap needed!

Thank you, but please! Birthday greetings are a nice thing, but not required on my journal or in my life. (Not to mention that I'm bloody terrible about it, especially on-line.)

Re: No guilt crap needed!

I'm awful about such things anyway, but your birthday was staring me in the face for days on my notification list, and so that makes it silly that I forgot :P Plus you're the day before my birthday, and Aquarians gotta stick together!

Us too

Weird thing is, I'd never heard of (what I call) "forest skating" until a month or so ago, and now I learn that there is at least one north of Toronto and others in Quebec.

And more, having now spent about three hours exploring the Labyrinthe de la foret perdu, it seems like a completely obvious winter pleasure and it's a bit of a wonder to me that there isn't one anywhere that it gets cold enough and there is a bit of a flat forest to build it in.
