My Famous Little Brothers

While Brother Mike and I toil away in relative obscurity, Brothers Johnny and Steve are piling on the fame.

Steve is acting as host for CBC Saskatchewan’s after program The Afternoon Edition for the next two weeks. You can listen in live every weekday from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Saskatchewan Time (which is 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Atlantic Time).

Johnny and his fiancee Jodi are famous for their wedding registry adventures. In last week’s Macleans magazine there was an article about registries in which Johnny was quoted as follows:

Johnny Rukavina and Jodi McLellan, getting married in Parksville, B.C., on Aug. 24, were initially wishy-washy about registering, but then common sense and memories of innumerable picnic baskets they’d bought as wedding gifts won out. “Something from the registry may not really be the special dream gift, but it’s also not a picnic basket,” says Rukavina. After registering at the Bay, the couple posted the following on their wedding Web site: “A disclaimer: we are not greedy materialistic fiends hell-bent on acquiring merchandise. We are not hermits who live in the woods and have eschewed all material possessions either.” In the new world of registering, there is a way around everything.
Mike and I will continue to wander along.
