Wired for Sound


See those 'container cranes' across the harbour in  Halifax? 


Just behind these is Point Pleasant Park.....our fav park for Sophie.
This is a view from Dartmouth yesterday morning as we were headed
to an appointment I had to get some 'wiring' done.


After the appointment we found ourselves at PPP
 and had a wonderful walk for about an hour.


Sophie was pretty 'wired' yesterday herself.
She needed to cool off at the end in this stream.


She was very playful and running all over the place
and wouldn't let either of us have Mr.Orangie!


Oh, and here are two of those cranes I mentioned above
this time from inside the park.


Sophie wasn't the only one that was wired yesterday!!
Me too! I am being 'monitored' for 48 hours
and have these 'sticky things' over my torso
with wires!

Nothing serious....my cardiologist wants to see how
things are going.

  2. Walk quietly, talk slowly, eat adequately, sleep well, and all those sticky patches will send the right signals. Your tracking monitor is very nifty and small, much tinier than what was here in NZ. Maybe the hardest part is when the patches are slowly/ rapidly, painfully... RIPPED off!!! ( Sorry about that info)...Take care, greetings from Jean.

  7. I see a little snow there, but still a nice place to visit. Those cranes are huge!
    They have come a long way with the monitors, this one doesn't seem to be in your way, at all. Back in the day, they were the size of a portable radio and only lasted 24 hours. I can't begin to tell you how many times I had to wear one and it took them forever to "catch" something. The episode would happen the day or so after the test.

  8. I see you're wired for the beat, Jim. Hope your heart gives an encore performance! I've never had that done.

  9. I hope everything turns out great, Jim!

    That looks like a beautiful park to hang around in and take photographs. We'll have to go there when hubby and I visit you in the future! :)

    1. I couldn't agree more Pat. Years ago, back in the mid sixties, it was decided by the then powers that be, to tear down a really beautiful yacht squadron/marina and put this monstrosity in!! Go figure. Wouldn't be possible to something like that nowadays.

  11. Hey Jim!
    I hope your wires indicate good, good things. I've been wired up a few times myself! At least the technology is shrinking so it's not so obvious! My first time, the battery packs and the computer for reading the camera working through my GI system was a gigantic and bulky vest. My doctor said, "Don't go into any banks" and we both busted up laughing!

    I love big cranes and seaports ~ maybe I'll post a few photos of the Dole ships in San Diego. I think I see stacked containers in the background behind the photo of SD and Ron (#2). Sophie Doodle sure lives the good life with you and Ron!

    Well, I've got to go get real ~ 1 1/2 hours of dental surgery tomorrow morning, so I may be out of commission for the next few days. Take care!

    Oh yeah, I thought that Ashley MacIsaac looked pretty tame in the video you posted. Could the guitar player be his son?

    1. I think we all calm down somewhat as we age Louise and so did Ashley.
      Good luck tomorrow at the dentists.

  12. I wouldn't let you have Mr. Orangie, either.

    Love,
    Janie
