It's almost five here and it is 5 somewhere.
I'll open the bar today to celebrate the life of my sister who passed away yesterday and I'll lift a glass to the climber's friend Susie who was an avalanche victim. The bottle's on the bar. Drink up. Celebrate someones life.

I didn't realize I don't have any pics of Suzie until earlier today, so I stolez one (from the news paper):


You know some of my most fond memories of her are the beers we cried and laughed over... she had a talent for making anyone laugh no matter how they felt... mad, sad, down, it didn't matter she put a smile on peoples faces. The day I met her (through my old climbing partner Marc) we climbed the three of us at Grassi Lakes above Canmore. We even had one hell of an exciting drive back down to Canmore for dinner and beers as I blew a tire going around a corner on the Spray lakes road right after the grater went by... making the road a loose pile of gravel and... apparently... pieces of tire eating grater blade.

Fast forward a few years and there's all the beers and training sessions on the climbing wall at the college. Free concerts and her laughing all the cuts on my face from my early ice climbing days... I might have had a tendency to knock down a lot of ice when I was pumped and swinging to hard.

She had one hell of a life... cut short, but one hell of a ride. Literally as it includes her epic bike ride from Canada to the tip of South America.

Tonight I'll raise my glass to her, the crazy life she had, my other friends who succumbed to our game, charley's sister, and to all of us who push on a live life to the max.

My glass is raised.... upside down... until I finish it and need to fill it again... then I'll raise it again!

She sounds like one hell of a woman, Climber. She will be missed indeed.

I'll hoist my cup of coffee in silent salute.

hey climber, i was just reading about the avalanche that took susie's life. So tragic. So sad.

I'll remember susie and tip my glass to her. And next time i'm in the backcountry she'll be in my thoughts.

cheers mate

I'll raise a glass as well... to both of those women.

Each day is a treasure. More so each memory.

Amen and bottoms up to that.

Wild night tonight. Bought a pair of emo black jeans for work and a candle at walmart. I'm going to start shopping there for regular clothes more often, its way cheaper than Prana hoodies and Patagucci dresses for some pretty cute stuff. I haven't actually looked at wal mart clothes in a long, long time....aside from what I'm sure is shit quality, they're not bad (I do have to wear the juniors, though, the smallest woman's falls right off me!)

My room smells like spring blossoms now. mMmmm.
