The Importance of Being Earnest: July 29/09

This was a dramatic reading of Oscar Wilde's play performed at Cambrian Player's studio, with no sets and minimal costuming. I borrowed Ven. Hoskin's older-style clerical collar (given him by his father) for my role as Canon Chasuble.

Cast for Act One

Cast for Act Two

Truly impressive was Eva Burkowski as Lady Bracknell, the part she was born to play!!

The Seven Answers of Sunday School

The Gatehouse @ Camp Gitchigomee

Most of the time when I am at Camp Gitchigomee, the Gatehouse is where I stay. As you can see, it is similar to Lamont (now gone) at Dorion Bible Camp, but larger and (since it has two windows) airier.

My Camp Gitchigomee Logs

Here is my complete collection so far. Each log stands for a week of camp or a camp event such as a reunion. The colours and symbols follow a code by which each log designates my role that week.

I started at Camp Gitchigomee only recently (in 2003), but already I have 26 logs. At 25 one qualifies for "long-service" logs so that the logs may be displayed side by side.

Family Fun Day: Sunday, July 19/09


K's own version of Croquet which morphed into a game of knocking the balls into the bushes for Richard to find. Much merriment ensued.

"A puppy!"



He may be eyeing me a bit warily, because he wasn't thrilled by the hot sauna or jumping to me into a cold pool. So now I may be associated with uncomfortable extremes of temperature.
