Together again

I was trying to think of the last time Jason and Philip were together – just the two of them. It is probably more than a decade – maybe even back when they were teenagers. You must know that as teenagers these two didn’t exactly act like best friends – not even like friends. Most of the time, it seemed to me at least, they were annoying one another, picking fights, hurling verbal stones at each other. Dinner time and Christmas day were the times they were best behaved but rarely would you have seen them going off together to do something.

I grabbed a photo off our google hangout chat



Times are changing and of course, they are grown men with their own families, so it was a real delight on our part to see them together for the past few days. Jason had a conference in nearby Banff and Phil was remarkably off work. So they had a chance to actually spend time together.

I wasn’t along for the ride – but the pictures would indicate they did enjoy being together.


Jason’s on his way here today as he makes his way home so it will be nice to see him for a few hours too.download_20170919_135136download_20170919_142322


Happy birthday Jason

January 19th always lands with great joy as we celebrate, even with him far from us, the birthday of our first born – Jason! He’s a son, husband, father of three and an accomplished academic. He has found his place it would seem in the world of political science and loves research! His field has incredible potential to impact people for good right where they live, so we celebrate all these things. But most of all we celebrate Jason.

Happy birthday Jason – we hope your day is filled with much joy!
