For the first time, I’m sitting in
enjoying a little wireless web computing.
Five years ago, I’d have never believed I’d be able to sit here
unconnected to anything and beam a message to another building that
sends my message through a satellite dish, up and down to earth and
makes my thoughts available to the world.
It’s raining at the edge of Algonquin Park as it is throughout Ontario
today. Tomorrow the weather is expected to turn very cold, enhancing my
dream of getting out on the lake and skating all the way around the
Perhaps we’ll even drop the cup and have another game of shinny. Since
they’re not playing for the Stanley cup this year, maybe we can lobby to
have our Algonquin Park
hockey game winner awarded with Lord Stanleys Mug!
There is of course a trade off. If we get a cold snap without snow, our
20 km road to town will be a skating rink too. Maybe I could take off
for the office like Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates. I remember one
of those snow days at school when no one showed up for classes and they
took the eight kids who were silly enough to come to school, set them on
the floor in the library and put Hans Brinker on the wall with an 8 mm
movie projector. Boy we thought that was special. Remember the days
when watching a movie was truly a special event?
