It was a nice, bright Sunday here in St. John's - full of sunshine if not necessarily a whole lot of warmth.
Three things happened that are worth noting, for the record:
1. Nick and I took our bikes out for our first spring jaunt. Beautiful day for it.
2. I hauled the barbecue out and fired it up. Hopefully more to come. The aroma was terrific.
3. Not related to the weather, but today was the first time Nick has seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail ... that is, the whole movie. I've shown him tidbits (the Camelot song, the monks who hit themselves with books, etc.) on YouTube, but now he's seen the works. When I heard him howling at the Swedish translation jokes in the Bergmanesque opening credits (and, granted, he won't get the Bergmanesque bit for years), I knew he's found a keeper that will amuse him for years and years ... just like his folks.
Dot Dot Dot is Morse code for the letter 'S,' the full message Guglielmo Marconi claimed to have received atop Signal Hill in St. John's in 1901. It ushered in the age of telecommunications. My maternal grandfather worked as a telegraph operator for Canadian Marconi on Signal Hill for many years.
As well, I have a habit of overusing the ellipsis when I write ... as frequent readers might notice.
