The prep concert was on June 10, 2017 for the Edmonton audience - and what a kind audience it was! That was, by the way, the second time I had sung the music with the choir - which was 100% more than another 'guest' chorister from Thunder Bay!! I think we managed to pull our … Continue reading UK Calling – What do I do until we leave?
Well, what a night. Park in the parking lot, walk into the hall and get ready to sing what's missing - a warm up - why because we were still pretty warmed up from just before supper hour with the rehearsal. For a guy that normally sings two concerts on the same day, nothing wrong … Continue reading UK Calling, the concert
This afternoon I get to take part in the dress rehearsal for a concert this evening. This will be the last concert of the season for the Richard Eaton Singers, and guests. I am one of the guests, a former member of the choir who relocated to Saskatoon two years ago. This concert is also … Continue reading Dress Rehearsal UK Calling Concert
A little weird to just see that statement on a post, however that is what the concert I am singing in on June 10 is called. It is a concert with my old choir - the Richard Eaton Singers and it is called 'UK Calling" for a very good reason, the choir will be going … Continue reading UK Calling
Well, we have been sitting in the airport for almost 3 hours now. There are cafe's and some restaurants open, but as yet no airline counters and a lot of the available tables are filled with security staff. All of the gate and ticket agents have gone home and all of the airline lounges have … Continue reading Cuernavaca Day 7 – The voyage home part 2

Basically the 6 of us just lazed around the pool … Continue reading Cuernavaca Day 6 – The voyage home part 1
Not sure what the norm is for a day after the wedding but we went to visit a pyramid (From Wikipedia) Teopanzolco Teopanzolco is an archeological site located just east of the historic downtown of Cuernavaca. Its construction is dated to the year 1427, and it was an important ceremonial center during the fifteenth and … Continue reading Cuernavaca Day 7 – The day after – or the day we travel home 😦
Friday night we had a wonderful time at a BBQ hosted by the bride's parents at their place in the mountains. We had a little work to do by building the BBQ, which had just been purchased, but that was a little fun while the commuting was done almost 30 minutes each way from Cuernavaca … Continue reading Cuernavaca Day 5 PM – The BBQ
We had earlier decided not to do much on the day of the wedding and true to form we ended up doing something but it was not much. Pancakes were served for breakfast and they were very good. Served with a concoction made out of condensed milk as well as jam and maple syrup - … Continue reading Cuernavaca – Day 6 the wedding (Boda)
We didn't move much today - 3/4 of us were not feeling that great this morning - first food we have not really prepared ourselves or had our concierge prepare. The mango margarita we had last night may also have had something to do with it. Ah well. Our landlord came by to pick up … Continue reading Cuernavaca Day 5. With a little discourse on leadership!
