Leslie and I returned from the Re-Tour (Re-Tourned, as it were) exactly on schedule on December 9th, after 52 days plus previews, 12,800 kms, and 60 events. To cut a long story short, we did what we set out to do all according to plan, and if we perhaps did not prove that we can draw audiences the way Stephen Leacock did in 1936-37, we believe that our audiences had a good and interesting time, as we certainly did. We met a lot of people and saw a lot of country, and no one can deny that that is a very fine Canadian thing to have done in our sesquicentennial year.
2019 is Stephen Leacock’s sesquicentennial year, of his birth that is, and I have no doubt that the Stephen Leacock Project will think of something interesting to do then. Just what that might be remains to be seen.
As does the future of this blog. It will have a future. That is about all I can say at this stage. I have much to read and think before I will know.
Thank you for paying attention. Please stay tuned.
