Watching the skies…

…for aliens? Monsters? No! We’ll be watching the skies this coming long weekend, hoping they’ll be clear and blue rather than wet and grey. The forecast is mixed, with a couple of dry days following a couple of damp days, so not too bad.

Looking up

The damp days might be good for beer and chocolate, and the dry ones for visiting beaches and hiking. Then the beer and chocolate.

Adorable? Edible

Watching the skies? Sounds like a nod to old B movies about visitors from outer space. If the aliens do decide to visit this weekend, they might be a tad disappointed, given we’re heading as a province into what appears to be a lockdown due to increasing COVID-19 cases. Sorry, ET, nothing to see or do here until later in the year! Be good. Stay home whether you’re from Mars or Manitoba, and wait for the welcome mat to be put out, a successful vaccination program permitting. Then when you do visit, erm… come in peace?

Weekend in colour

A brief post as we wrap up work and look forward to the weekend. If chocolate bunnies, eggs and all that stuff is your thing, then I hope you enjoy the celebration. If it isn’t, I hope you have time for a beer, some chocolate, and a local outing somewhere pleasant.

Local and pleasant

Almost done here. Getting back to B movies, I hear there’s a new Godzilla vs. King Kong release? Lizards and apes – maybe I can convince Mrs. PC she’ll enjoy this new nature documentary? Hmm. Beer, chocolate, and mindless screen entertainment on a rainy day? Alright!

An ET being good

Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. Great fun hanging out here today with you, pc, and the aliens, chocolate bunnies, and azaleas. I chuckled at the adorable photo of Scout. I hope your weekend has good chocolate, delicious beer, and some fun time on the beach. Happy Easter, my friend.


  2. My dog used to do that. Get under a towel and look up at you with “the look.” The flowers are exquisite. Enjoy the chocolate and beer and the beach. I don’t feel like cooking so am ordering pizza and pop. There are a whole slew of the old alien classics this weekend .What ever you choose, enjoy!


  3. While I love the splash of color and adorable bunny, all my attention immediately shifted to the favorite film ET and the fabulous Scout!! I still enjoy watching ET and tell Mrs. PC that she’ll be able to make it through Godzilla vs. Kong with a glass (probably two) of wine. I’m not an expert on the many Godzilla and King Kong movies since I’ve only seen them once compared to how many times I’ve watched ET, but I enjoyed Kong: Skull Island more as the great cast had a larger role. There were a few favorites in the new movie, but not enough screen time. I’ll be watching Idris Elba’s new film Concrete Cowboy on Netflix today, but I may have to switch to ET the more I look at Scout’s photo. Enjoy the chocolate, beer and hopefully some sunshine!!


    1. ET is an absolute favourite, gets me every time! The monster documentary didn’t happen – I think my explanation about Skull Island (excellent hokum) didn’t help…
      Looking forward to Concrete Cowboy, and I’m betting if I mention Idris Elba, it’ll be on before any Kong movie.
      I hope your weekend was a good one, and I’ll end by saying I think I’m over this Premier League season. Super happy I opted for the beach over staying in this morning to be disappointed again!

  4. As far as the Easter business and beer goes, you could always split the difference with a nice Chocolate Stout…


  5. “… a beer, some chocolate, and a local outing somewhere pleasant…” had me looking up at the sky sort of like a mischievous Scout in that final photo. Wonderful! And hope you had a great one.
