Empty Sidewalks on Tobacco Road

Home where Danny was born and raised

This is a continuation of a previously published story that I wrote in 2012.  Please read The Summer of ’66 before reading this story; otherwise, it won’t make much sense.  Thanks! ~ Hugs, Danny The road to Tobacco Road had sidewalks, but there were none on Vittoria Road – or at least, none on the… Continue reading Empty Sidewalks on Tobacco Road

A Nude Wreck on Wreck Beach

August 10, 2020 at Wreck Beach

August 10, 2020 I hope you aren’t offended by my photo. I spent the day, sunbathing in the nude for the first time in my life at the world-famous Wreck Beach in Vancouver, BC. But I wasn’t alone – there were several hundred sun worshippers of all ages, scattered along the 7.8 km beach. I’m… Continue reading A Nude Wreck on Wreck Beach

Footsteps to Remember

A few years ago, some friends and I walked around Burnaby Lake and came across a gaggle of geese. I’m not sure who told me that a group or flock of geese is called a gaggle, but it was probably my gal pal, Agnes.  She’s one of the smartest people I know – and I… Continue reading Footsteps to Remember

News of the Day

In early February, I stopped following the news of the day because I was getting stressed out from all of the doom and gloom. I used to watch the news all of the time, and if I were in the car, I’d listen to an all-news channel.  And then, suddenly, I had a brain fart… Continue reading News of the Day

A Walk on the South Trail

Yesterday, I took a walk along Campbell Valley Regional Park’s south trail.  I wanted to clear my mind of debris, caused by years of reckless abandon.  I was feeling happy because I would be on a film set on Friday morning.  It’s a commercial and my first acting gig of the year. It is also my… Continue reading A Walk on the South Trail

Which Way You Goin’, Danny?

For any old-timers reading this blog:  Do you remember the Poppy Family?  Not to be confused with the Partridge Family, Modern Family, or All In The Family, the Poppy Family was a Canadian band that had a few hits in the Sixties.  I was never a huge fan, but I did buy one of their… Continue reading Which Way You Goin’, Danny?

A Happy Goats’ Day

A few days ago, I received an email from my friends, Reg and Leslie Dutton.  They had sent me a beautiful Christmas card in the mail; so, I assumed it was either an esoteric, happy new year or happy birthday message because the Subject line read:  Happy Goats! A quick look didn’t reveal a message,… Continue reading A Happy Goats’ Day

A Fair Lady in Fairhaven

After a short series of emails, Tom, Margaret, Norm, and I got together for an impromptu walk in the village of Fairhaven, Washington.  Norm’s wife, Gina, wasn’t able to join us because she was volunteering.  So, my gal pal, Margaret, was our ‘fair lady in Fairhaven.’ Margaret is Tom’s wife, which left Norm, and I like… Continue reading A Fair Lady in Fairhaven

You Have Mail

Blaine, Washington walk (March 2, 2019)

Today, while having my morning coffee and checking emails, I got a surprise. I was surprised, because I’ve never, ever, received a Happy Thanksgiving card before, and I was elated because of who sent it to me. It was a beautiful, animated card of a country scene, complete with pumpkins, children playing, grownups doing their… Continue reading You Have Mail

The Lost Mustache Walk

It’s been a week since I lost my mustache and I’m not sure if I’ll ever find it again.  It’s only happened twice before in the last fifty-two years.  But I feel naked without it and haven’t had the nerve to venture out in public.  I mean, who likes to be embarrassed? Last Monday, I… Continue reading The Lost Mustache Walk
