The magnolias are back

And they’re a lot earlier than last year.

I keep track of these things.

    On Thursday morning, as he was getting ready for school, my son suddenly cried out, “Look, Daddy!” I thought it must be something really dramatic – it was the neighbour’s cherry tree in blossom! As he said, “Spring is really coming!” We saw four more in a street just outside his school. Happy sight.

    Goodness, your son must be really big now! How old is he? (Not that I’ve met him, but I remember hearing about him as a toddler.)

      He’s six. I was looking through some photos the other day and comparing him now to photos when we arrived in India (so he was three or a bit less even), goodness he did a lot of growing up out there! He seems to be finding England a bit cold (um, so am I) so spring is rather significant to him. And we’ll be up in that there Londonton on Saturday, oggling the dinosaurs, so if you happen to be couriering around Kensington or Victoria you might get to see him!

    In Anchorage right now it’s wet, icy, slushy and overall a nasty mess the worst time of the year to be on the road the downtown core is mostly pavement but everything else is so icy you run the tires with lots of studs in a love hate relationship. I’m in Kihei on the island of Maui a warm wonderful topical paradise with my wonderful wife. I wish you (along with a bunch of other messengers) were here with us. I think you’d really dig it here.

      Hey, one day, when couriers are backpaid all the holiday and sick pay they’re owed, along with their expenses, and the difference between the national minimum wage and what they’ve been scraping by on all these years, we should all go on holiday together!

      But unless that happens in the next few months – I might be passing through Anchorage in 2013ish…

        Well, you can stay with us when you hit Anchorage. We’ll even feed you some salmon and muktuk. Yeah this business sucks and if we got the rewards we deserve we’d all get ten days a year in some tropical paradise just for showin’ up
