Have A Great Weekend, I’m Outta Here!

I love Parkdale, I really do. So much so that not so long ago I posted about it a little bit in a Friday, Have A Great Weekend kinda post.

Parkdale on King!

However, there are certain times when it’s really awesome to not be in the neighbourhood. This weekend is one of them. The Air Show is in town for the last weekend of the CNE. It’s going to be loud. It’s going to be busy. It’s going to be a gong show.It’s the same thing when the Indy is in town. The cars wake me up in the morning and there are people walking all over the place when I try to go out and get coffee or breakfast in my weekend gear.

The craziest though, of all of the weekends in Parkdale, is Caribana. It’s absolutely nuts. In a good way mostly. A lot of people come from near and far to enjoy the festivities, support local business and have a good time. There are negatives, the violence and stupidity of some of the patrons is always a downer, but that’s just the way life goes.

My favourite thing to do during all of these weekends is leave. Yup, I said it.

MMM Burgers!

So, this weekend I will headed 104 kilometres east to my mom’s house. As you’re aware, she celebrated her birthday this week so we’ll be bbqing some burgers and hot dogs and veggies and drinking some wine and beer and sitting in the back yard and enjoying the deck and the hot tub and the pond and friends and family. It will be awesome.

The Back Yard!

Odds are that I will also get up Sunday morning and go to church with her because I try to be a good son and I haven’t been in a while.

The Back Yard!

Side Note: I also like the minister. He’s pretty awesome.

Let me make this point again, I love Toronto and I adore Parkdale… I just don’t wanna be there this weekend.

I hope all of you have a great, fun, relaxing, special, safe, awesome long weekend. You’ve earned it. We all know you have.

So pack up your stuff, shut down the computer and make your way for the door. It’s alright, you can tell your boss I said it was okay.

Smile Big. Be Awesome!
