12 Days of Styxx, 2019 Edition: Day 8

Welcome to a year in the life of our greyhound/lurcher Styxx, compressed into twelve daily posts leading up to Christmas.

It’s birthday time for Styxx. We don’t know his exact age—most likely twelve—or his exact birthday. Considering he was rescued from Ohio, July 4 seems appropriate.

Walking to Rome: Another Day in London

Tomorrow Gail and I will make our way on foot from the Christian heart of London, Westminster Abbey, to Canterbury, a journey of some 120 kilometers over six days. We will roughly follow the trail pilgrims have followed for centuries. A trail colorfully described in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. A trail that, these days, is aptly known as the Chaucer Way.

As a head start, today we will be visiting central London sites significant to pilgrims past and present. (more…)

Walking to Rome: Winnipeg

It starts in Canterbury. Gail and I will leave its cathedral, head south, cross the English Channel, traverse France, climb Switzerland’s Great Saint Bernard Pass, continue south through Italy and finally arrive on the doorstep of the Vatican. (more…)
