Remember... it's almost Christmas

A few weeks back, my Dad and I went on another secret mission (we does those a fair amount now). We took the bus downtown and joined a big crowd of people in the cold. After a fair amount of being quiet, a band started and then another one, and another one - it was a band parade that consisted of mostly Canadians in a variety of uniforms, and a mini band of Russians. It was pretty powerful stuff.

Speaking of powerful stuff, I scored three goals last Saturday at my soccer. Two were in a drill, but one was in the scrimmage (my Dad was medium excited, but I could tell he was holding back his jubilation). I will try and find you a picture, but Dad says that I have to protect my 'image rights' for future contracts. He's alright my Dad, but a bit nutty.

It has been a busy couple of weeks, and I thought I would get you up to speed more visually this time - actually, I like talking too. Shortly after Halloween, my Dad and I went to see a BC Lions game at the New Stadium! I love that place. Actually it's not new, but it sure looks that way.

It was so loud at the game that I was a little unsure at first, but I eventually got into the times when the announcer told us all to make noise - I just went for it. I got a foam claw and practiced my roar on one of the ramps. We left just before the end, but it was quick late so I took a committed snooze in my chair on the way home.

Swimming has been getting better and better, and my Dad and I have a pretty dedicated Tuesday now from waking in the morning, swimming in the afternoon, and dinner at La Taqueria.

Lastly, Ollie and I wanted to give a shout out to our parents. 16 years ago tonight was their first date. I'm not sure what a date is, but it's probably something from back in the middle ages. Put it this way, I have no photos of them from then because photos were stored on paper back then! What? Anyway, Ollie and I did one of us instead - this is from our 'strike a pose' catalog.
