Musings from a morning

Coming to work today was something I 

looked forward too after suffering aches

and pains of a fall bug and cold.  I hate

getting sick and during my three and a

half years at Goldenwest Radio I was

proud of the fact I had only 4 sick days

on my record.  I took two days this week

and was ready to come back at 3am the

first night while I was up with aches and

pains.  Some jobs I have had over the years

I wished that sickness would take me down for

a couple of days.  When I miss a day on the

radio in High River I feel guilty so hopefully

this two days away will not repeat itself too

soon.  Stay healthy and happy!!!  The new

blog, a great new building and good people

to work with make it good to be where

I am at in life!  Enjoy your day and fall.


Musings from the Morning

A new Blog page is coming soon,

be sure to check back to see it.


A serving kind of Friday at Boston Pizza in

High River raised a bunch of money

for The United Way in High River.  I was

a part of the festivities with other staffers

including, Jody, Steph and Mike!  Good Times

and fun.  A shout out to BP's Servers who

gave up their tips for charity.



The Hospital Foundation Laid Back Luau

went Saturday.  Thousands  of dollars raised later

and all were smiling.  Seen there Saturday Mcing

was Jody Seeley, I mastered the CD's and we even

had a dancer!  Congrats to all at the Foundation

on another great night of fun and raising funds

for our wonderful community!



It Really IS The Happiest Place On Earth

We have a celebration going on at AM 1140.  Our very own Sean Emmett got engaged yesterday!

Sean 1

And he did it in-style in front of the Princess Castle in Disneyland

We are so excited that there is a woman in this world who agreed to be with our Sean.....just kidding buddy!  We are thrilled that one of our family members has found their true love.  Sean popped the question Oct. 14 in Disneyland.

Sean 2

awwwwww....the first kiss after she says YES!

Sean 3

Sean 4

The newly engaged couple - Sean & Katie....nice work on the diamond!

Thanks to some of the crew from Disneyland for taking some pictures for us all to feel like we were apart of their special moment. 

Congratulations Sean and Katie!!  We wish you all the best and much happiness together!  Love your AM 1140 Family.

Musings from the Morning

Happy "What do I do with the left overs

Tuesday"?  Turkey n' eggs?  Turkey and

?  It's the time of year my Mom and Grand

Mom's shone through history.  They made

it taste better with each meal.  Our

generation not so much.  Have you ever heard

this around your house?  Hey throw it out

let's get a pizza!!  We had some left overs but

we didn't host the dinner so there wasn't that

much except for some Nephla noodles, which my wife

loves and ate up yesterday.  Best of luck with

your left overs.  There is always GOOGLE when

you need something quick!
