I'm about to step into our car and drive the girls and a friend to Manitoba. Barring the unforeseen (last time we tried this, we made an unplanned stop in Sarnia while Eastern North America figured out how to turn the lights back on), we should arrive in Winnipeg roughly the same time as my wife.
A good deal of my extended family resides there. I'll also be attending the Winnipeg Folk Festival, the better to stalk musical heroes Jason Ringenberg (cow-punk godfather, currently having fun as "Farmer Jason"), Daniel Lanois and EmmyLou Harris. I'll also be bringing my notorious book suitcase to stock up on unexpected finds in some of Wpg's finer used bookstores. I'll do what I can to update my sites, but for the next two weeks postings could be sporadic.
