This is the spot where Paul and Laura Cooley are sharing quips, queries, quibblings, quirks, and quantifications of their daily lives.
To the title: Zee or Zed? The quandary continues to this a most complicated and highly controversial argument that Laura and Paul have had over the pronunciation of the letter 'Z'. It may summarize our daily cross-cultural lives as an American and a Canadian share all that matters, and several things that don't matter, with each other.

Laura's Favorites #4 - The Cabin
In 1976 my parents decided that they wanted a lake place. They bought an old shack on Lake Cavanaugh. Nearly every weekend of every summer from when I was 2 until a teenager was spent at the cabin. BBQ, water-skiing, riding around the lake on bikes, ice-skating on the frozen lake, the out house, running cold water, baths in the lake, making mud cookies in the sand, rainy 4th of Julys, walking to the store for a candy bar, trips to town to go shopping with my mom and swimming for hours on end in the rain or sun. Most of my childhood memories were made there. I went away for University and came back to an amazing summer home. I still call the place "the cabin"... it is the same view that I loved growing up.
