Skippy


This is where we went to when we skipped class in High school. Sometimes we hung out in the hallways, sometimes we came down to the beach. The other day it took me a minute to think before answering my sister's questions on asymptotes. Asym-what? How did Animal Farm end? What Shakespeare play is the quote "fair is foul and foul is fair" from? What is the story behind the Fraser River Gold Rush? What city is called Canada's "Paris of the Prairies"?

Saskatoon. And this is where every Canadian will LOL and say "there is nothing Paris about Saskatoon!".

Why do we learn these? A highschool teacher can confidently answer that knowledge is power, and it will come in handy when you reach middle age and start playing along with Jeopardy on TV to distract the loneliness that comes within your heart. I'll take 400, Alex.

  4. My sister and her husband lived in Regina for several years. That resulted in an uncle (by marriage) telling the story about the years he spent on his grandfather's farm in Saskatoon--every time the family got together. I've never been to Saskatoon, but because of that story (hearing it over and over) I don't like it!

    No matter what happens in life, you'll always have you....so you've got some pretty awesome company.

  6. Jeopardy's a valid point but I'm still not convinced that spending our youth in classrooms and not on a beach is wise.:) Gorgeous shots, babe, and you've made me think - I have to google most of this stuff now. Damn.:D

  9. Nice photos! A lot of the things I'm learning in school seem useless. I guess it's supposed to make you more knowledgeable and cultivated?

  11. Haha...hahahaha!
    Right, that's all this knowledge is useful for. Asymptotes is going to be a game winner on Jeopardy, just you wait ;)
    Anyway, wish I had a place like this to escape to when I skip class!
