Day 9 (I think)
City: Banff, AB
Venue: @banffcentre (The Club)
The day started with a reasonable 11am lobby call, followed by a reasonable 3 hour drive through beautiful Kootenay National Park in BC.
We stopped for a second to take in the beauty of Columbia Lake / Blue Knight Peak. In a desperate Moment relieved myself at a roadside turnoff overlooking Mt. Assiniboine, pretty sure a passing car got a good look.
Pulled into Banff with just enough time to drop the bags in the room and go to soundcheck. The show was awesome, it was sold out, and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. The one 13 year old in the audience learned something new today... PG13 Parents strongly cautioned – Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13... thankfully it wasn’t too bad.
City; Cranbrook, BC
6:30AM Lobby Call, 7.5 hour drive, thanks @francusmaximus8 .... then an absolutely fantastic show to 351 wonderful people. Not bad for my first time in Cranbrook!
Sherie, Tafari and I went out for a romantic dinner as a throuple. Champagne and everything.
I feel like the lack of sleep helped my comedic banter on stage, and the energy from the excited crowd kept me going. All the staff at the theatre went above and beyond to help make the experience top shelf.
Some of the band went out to celebrate @billysticks birthday, me on the other hand... I went to bed because we have a sold out show tonight @banffcentre - and I want to be ready to party!
Practicing solo recalls with Whinnie today while Mahoney is off munching grass. Not much speed yet but that’s okay- when starting training recalls don’t worry to much about distance or speed! Look for first the opportunity to just reward your pet’s choice to move to you! Are you making it fun to run? #getpawsitive
City: Sherwood Park, AB
It’s always amazing to come back to Festival Place, this is the 3rd time in 2 years they have had us back and it is just such a dream to work with the staff and crew here. They take such good care of us.
It’s also super fantastic when I get to see my moms side of the family, they are so supportive and so much fun!
I went to bed real quick after the show. 6:30am lobby call ain’t no joke.
Happy Valentine's day to you and yours...
Wish you ghuys nothing but too much Joy, love and happiness..
Love her more
And treat her more better❤️

Day 5 & 6
City: Saskatoon, SK
Wifi: Jesuslovesme (I shit you not)
Ok. So here is the thing. A house that is only used for an Airbnb (ie not your personal home) - should probably have a more nondenominational palate. Everywhere you turned from the decor to the wifi network and password was scripture. Also - please let renters know if the place has cameras etc. I get it, you want to make sure that no one is messing up your house... rent it long term Instead of short term. I felt spied on and judged.
So anyway. Here we are in Saskatoon - and she is a cute one. We did a Radio interview on @cfcrsaskatoon on Tuesday, and morning plus the noon news @ctvsaskatoon then headed to the venue.
Love the @thebassmentclub - it’s a super awesome gem of a venue. Sound was awesome, people were awesome, hospitality was great and we had such a great time. Can’t wait to come back.
Next up: TONIGHT @festivalplacesp IN SHERWOOD PARK, AB
Days 3 & 4
City: Regina, SK
Wifi: 10 digits of someone’s phone number - who’s? I don’t know.
I will firstly confess that I completely forgot to take a lot of photos. It’s been a long ass day... both of them.
Sunday we left Winnipeg (and my power adapter for my portable printer), and headed for REGINA! Few pit stops, some BBQ @jack_keatons_bbq_bar , and bed time.
The day started at 5:30am. I must make another confession... usually I see 5:30am from the other way. At any rate - we played on @globalregina and @ctvregina between 7am-9pm. Surprisingly my voice woke up real fast under the pressure of live broadcast news and a strong coffee.
Tried to nap. Failed. @francusmaximus8 cooked us an Italian lunch. I tried to nap again. Failed again. Then headed to @cjtr_91.3 to do an on air interview/performance and hang out with Jeff “Redbeard”. Then we headed over to the venue, set up, soundcheck - you know - the usual. Dana sent us over for a delicious dinner at #thecapitolregina . We played a great two series night, packed up, headed home, and I fell asleep with my phone in my hand halfway does this post.
Next up: Saskatoon!
Bee gees : run to me (1972)
Run to me whenever you're lonely (to love me)
Run to me if you need a shoulder
Now and then, you need someone older,
So darling, you run to me. #beegees #runtome
Don't you dare turn around, nothing left beyond but ashes where buildings once stood and cricked foundations. Here in front of you is the only vision revised for you. Leave all what caused injury behind and fine here your peace.
