New Treasure – New Adventure

So about a month ago we did a little road trip and went to an amazing music festival down south and enjoyed 3 days of Canadian 80’s bands, which I’ve already told you about, what I didn’t tell you about was the trip home. We just happened to stop at one of the most beautiful tourist booths ever, so that He Who Never Stops Working, could check his e-mail and reply to some texts, and also so that I could have a walk-about. I’m not nearly as good of a sitter as I used to be. Anyway, I love tourist booths, you can find out all about the city/town and the area and sometimes if you’re really lucky, which I am sometimes, you can find treasures. At this particular tourist booth I did exactly that, I found a treasure that I have been looking for, for the past couple of years. I purchased my treasure and a couple bottles of water and made a bee-line for the truck, where I waited patiently, waving my arms and jumping up and down, while He Who is Long-Winded, finished his phone call. Then it went something like this, “Guess what I got? You’re never going to guess what I found in there? I have been looking for this for frigging ever and I found it. Are you going to guess or what???”…..’No, what did you…’ “Look it!!! Look at this. Isn’t it amazing!!!”……’Umm, you know what that is don’t you?’…..”Well, of course I do! It’s a backpack for Uncle Matt!!! Can you imagine, me finding a backpack for Uncle Matt here. Who would have thunk it? It was fate, kismet, kharma that we stopped here!”……’You do know that this is a….’….”Yes, I know what it is! Do YOU know what it is?”……’Yup, looks like Matt has a backpack…..finally.’…”Thank you, now get driving.”…

Now we finally get a chance to try out the backpack. And I was right! It fits him perfectly, like it was made for him. Today we are going on a bit an adventure, taking a little day trip north, across the dam and back into a little lake where according to some friends, there has been a discovery of dinosaur tracks. How exciting is that? Uncle Matt has been packed and ready to go since last night, new fishing duds – check…..fishing rod – check…..new backpack – check…..He hasn’t really had too many adventures this year, and he’s not missing out on this one!!
