Life in a Northern Town

Remember that song? (Brian the Mennonite, if you're reading this, I know you remember it. I don't have your email. Write me.) It was a one-hit wonder for some band whose name I can't remember, but I loved that song. There was a dream quality about it. In fact, I think the name of the band was "Dream Academy", right? Anyway, that was a good song.

Latest news (actually it's not news for our house, but...) we have another member in the family, a dwarf hamster named...wait for it...HAMMY!! I did not name it! Actually, for all you Robson Arms fans, I wanted to name it "Bushy Bush", but no one went for it.

I had the chance to start reading "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" to my son Dylan today, and he really enjoyed it, for which I was relieved and thankful. I really wanted him to like it, and he did. I'm a little nervous about the movie, but it will bring C.S. Lewis to the forefront like the LOTR trilogy did for Tolkien.

My work is going okay. There is so much to do and so many avenues to explore that I get immobilized sometimes. The world of corrections is huge, and I don't really know anything about it. Just making initial contacts with so many people I don't know is a daunting task at times, and it can be exhausting.

I also want to throw out a big HI to friends that I haven't talked to in a while. Nolan, Ed, ede, Nathan, Brian, Steve, Coop and Wendy, Nathan Peterson, hi to you all. (Sorry if I missed your name. Hi to you too.)

Darren buddy,
Yes I do remember that song. I have it running through my head right now. I"ll pull out that old cassette once a year or so and step into the "dreamscape" that group presents. I've been following your blog for a while now and have enjoyed getting to know you again without your knowing it. I've started a blog recently. It's called "I Wonder". My email adress is
I'd love to hear from you. The family is doing well.

Hey Darren,
just dropped in to see what condition your condition was in.

Hokey, but that's me....authentically cheezy!
