Finally the Wedding

Posted on October 20, 2011 at 8:15 PM Comments comments (1)

My daughter, who’s in the ‘top two’ favorite backpacking partners, Kim finally tied the knot, bit the biscuit, got hitched…oh what the hell…got married. Her beau Lou is probably the greatest guy that we could ever hope for in a son-in-law. What a blast we had at the reception. Can’t remember a better party that went on into the wee hours…and they even stayed to the last minute…unheard of. I know that they’ll flourish for the rest of their lives. Their wonderful son Louie (ring bearer) was perfect through the whole thing. Kim’s been planning this for years. Always wanted the big deal.

I know that I’m probably supposed to talk my books or our wild backpacking adventures or my crazy YouTube videos, but not today. Celebration time at the Bondys’

Congrats to Kim, Lou & Louis Anthony Tessier III

Check out my facebook page for a few pics of the wedding. There is more to come.

My New Fantasy Adventure Book

I think that you’re in for a treat. If you like fantasy adventures I’m about one third into it and expecting my new book to be out in around a years’ time. I’ve written about some of our new backpacking adventures and added a lot of spice. The hikes are real but some of the characters and the plot are fictitious. Travel to a new dimension…feel what the characters feel…see what they see or do not realize what is seen. Physics have changed when you venture here….and that’s ok, but don’t go further. You may not come back. Check my website out. I’ll be giving a sneak preview in a few weeks.

More Crazy Jimmy

Wahoo! All of the videos are there. Check out my YouTube site… http://www.youtube.com/user/effexus3 The newest vids are the 5 “Crazy Jimmy” series. If you want to learn how to load a pack just go in order #1 of 5 …to #5 of 5. You’ll enjoy some of the craziness found on each of them so get your sense of humor out. I think that you might need it.

These videos were shot while I was actually loading my pack for the trek that Kim and I did in 2010 on the Bruce Trail, so beware, it’s in real time… complete with a little trouble. The 2010 hike is the main focus in my next adventure book.

Here on my website, there’s lots of entertaining pages to have fun with. You can meet the real characters from my current book…Friday on the Trail…not to mention an extensive “Meet the Author” page with my bio and favorites….and tons more stuff. Contact me personally on my e-mail…[email protected] but if you like snail mail drop me a line and address it to… Jim Bondy: Box 92 Essex Ontario N8M 2Y1.

It brings you to “1of5”, the first in a series of 5 short videos. I’ll show you how I load a backpack for a trek on the trail and have a blast doing it. Remember that sanity kind of ran out in our family just before 1949...kinda when I was born. Just sit back and have some fun. Don’t forget to subscribe...and pass it on

Crazy Movie

Posted on May 3, 2011 at 8:45 PM Comments comments (0)

HI friends. I’ve been away since January working on a new project to promote my new book. I made a series of five movies showing how to load my backpack. It was a blast. Pam and I had such fun making these and I think that you’ll love them too. There are some really crazy antics that will make you roar…or if you are more serious than I would like you to be, you might just think that I’m a nut-case and need to be locked up. I will soon be uploading it onto my YouTube channel. The link is at the bottom of this page. So many of you loved my adventure book that I have out right now, called ‘Friday on the Trail’. It’s about some of the adventures that I had on the Bruce Trail in Ontario Canada. The first chapter has to do with a bit of a bio about myself growing up, and how I somehow fell in love with backpacking. Ask for it at your favorite bookstore…or even easier you can just go to my website…or email…or write to me. All of my contact information is below. My new book will be out in about 2 years. I think that you’ll love this book too. Talk to you soon.

Hypothermia

Posted on March 23, 2011 at 9:39 PM Comments comments (0)

I learned something new today. When your body (core) get cold, your system shunts more blood to the core area to protect it from hypothermia...robbing blood from your extremities...feet and hands etc. So next time my feet or hands get cold... or I want to have s_x... I'm going to put on a sweater ...:D :D :D

The bully

Posted on March 16, 2011 at 1:24 AM Comments comments (0)

The Girl you just called fat? She has been starving herself & has lost over 30lbs...The Boy you just called stupid? He has a learning disability & studies over 4hrs a night...The Girl you just called ugly? She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her...The Boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home...There's a lot more to people than you think...Repost if you're against bullying..

New Publisher

Posted on March 13, 2011 at 8:19 PM Comments comments (0)

Hey Friends. For my first book I just picked a publisher out of the blue. I didn't think to investigate too much and now I want to shop around as I'm nearing the halfway point in my second. There are a lot of questions that I want to ask now that I've gotten my feet wet.

Don't get me wrong. My publisher did a great job and I only have a hand-full of complaints...most of which, they have taken care of but my biggest problem is that they are from the States. I have to do some real finagling to get around the pricy brokerage fees and the huge shipping costs that they want to charge ($12 per book! Sheesh).

Saying this...I am looking for a GOOD Canadian publisher. There are a million companies out there so a little input will help me weed out the riff-raff. Just reply or send me an email at [email protected] or [email protected] MUCH APPRECIATE

Finally Back

Posted on February 7, 2011 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (1)

Promote…promote…promote. I’m lovin’ it. My newest endeavors have placed my books at the Leamington Art Gallery (gift shop). I’m waiting for confirmation from the Windsor Metropolitan Hospital (gift shop). You can now also find my books at the Pelee Wings Nature Shop near the Point, and am awaiting a response from the Point Pelee Visitor Center (gift shop). The Essex Historical Railway has my books in their gift shop. These are only a few of the new places that I’m hoping will feature my books. It’s really quite exciting…but so time consuming, and I have such a crazy program of work over the next 2 months.

Week 1= Monday-split shift; Tuesday-midnight; Wednesday–split shift; Thursday–midnight; Friday–split shift

Week 2= Monday-days; Tuesday-days; Wednesday-split shift; Thursday-9till5; Friday-split shift

Week 3=Monday-midnight; Tuesday-midnight; Wednesday-midnight; Thursday-split shift; Friday-days

Week 4= All Week-afternoons

Week 5= Monday-split shift; Tuesday-days; Wednesday-days; Thursday-split shift; Friday-split shift

Week 6= Monday-split shift; Tuesday-days; Wednesday-afternoons; Thursday-afternoons; Friday-afternoons

Week 7= All Week-afternoons

Week 8= Monday-afternoons; Tuesday-days; Wednesday-split shift; Thursday-split shift; Friday-split shift.

After this things should go back to normal…somewhat...whatever normal is.

Blast Off

Posted on November 10, 2010 at 9:36 PM Comments comments (0)

Hey everyone. I just had my first book signing at Indigo in Lakeshore (Tecumseh) Ontario. I had a blast. Lots of people were there and many seemed really interested. I sold 7 books but I read somewhere that if you sell one...the signing should be considered a success. The main goal is to get exposure and recognition as an author. I really feel that, that happened. I was not the least bit nervous because I knew what I was talking about and chatted it up naturally.

I was smack dab right in the middle of the front doors. I got to say hi to everyone that showed up. The funny thing was that every once in a while people were asking me for directions. They thought that I was a 'greeter'. That's ok...you never know when I might need that job experience....Hmmm. They seemed a little embarrassed when I told them I was an author plugging my book and pointed to my poster picture.
