MY LOVELY DAUGHTER IS IN HER 1ST YEAR OF PODIATRY SCHOOL IN BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA AND IS REALLY ENJOYING IT.  SHE JUST STARTED MID-TERMS THIS WEEK AND FINDS THE COURSE VERY CHALLENGING AND REWARDING.  THE TIME DIFFERENCE IS 14 HOURS AHEAD OF OUR TIME AND WE HAVE TO PLAN OUR PHONE CALLS CAREFULLY.  THEY HAVE ONLY HAD 1 DAY EVER IN BRISBANE WHERE THE WEATHER WENT BELOW 0 DEGREES CELSIUS AND IT WENT TO MINUS 1 MANY YEARS AGO.

LOOKING FORWARD TO WHEN THIS BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMEN WILL GRADUATE AS A PODIATRIST AND THEN JOIN OUR FOOT CLINIC.

SHANNON HARDY, DR. JOHN A. HARDY'S AND MARZ'S LOVELY DAUGHTER STARTED PODIATRY SCHOOL LAST MONTH AT QUEENSLAND UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY IN BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA.  IT HAS BEEN VERY INTENSE THUS FAR BUT SHANNON IS ENJOYING THE COURSE VERY MUCH SO FAR.  AFTER WORKING IN OUR TORONTO FOOT CLINIC FOR SEVERAL YEARS SHE HAS DECIDED THAT THIS IS THE COURSE SHE WANTS TO PURSUE FOR HER CAREER. ITWAS A TOSS-UP BETWEEN FLYING AND BEING A PODIATRIST, BUT PODIATRY HAS WON OUT.

WE HELPED HER GET SETTLED AND SHE HAS A LOVELY APARTMENT IN A BEAUTIFUL CITY.  IT IS ALSO VERY HILLY AND SHE WILL GET LOTS OF EXERCISE AS YOU ARE EITHER GOING UP A HILL OR DOWN ONE.  WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED ON SHANNON'S PROGRESS. THE TIME CHANGE IS 14 HOURS SO IT IS A BIT TRICKY TALKING TO HER BUT SO FAR WE ARE MANAGING.

 

 

DR. HARDY'S LOVELY WIFE, MARZ HARDY AND HIS BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER, SHANNON HARDY AROSE EARLY AT 5:00 A.M. TO PARTICIPATE IN THE 2014 SPORTING LIFE MARATHON.  WE SLEPT ON OUR BOAT AT OUTER HARBOUR MARINA LAST NIGHT AND MARZ AND SHANNON LEFT ON SHANNON'S VESPA TO MAKE THEIR WAY TO THE STARTING POINT.  THEY REPORTED BEING A BIT CHILLY ON THEIR MOTORCYCLE RIDE BUT THE WEATHER IS GOING TO WARM UP AND SHOULD BE QUITE PLEASANT LATER ON IN THE DAY.  NONETHELESS, GREAT WEATHER FOR A LITTLE RUN.

THE HARDY'S HAVE ALWAYS BEEN VERY ACTIVE AND BELIEVE STRONGLY IN PHYSICAL FITNESS.  WE HAVE A FULL WORKOUT CENTER ON OUR FARM IN SCARBOROUGH WITH A STAIRMASTER, TREADMILL, COMPLETE BOWFLEX SYSTEM AS WELL AS FREE WEIGHTS, ETC.

THE REST OF THE DAY WILL BE SPENT WITH THE MOTHERS AND A SMALL FEAST.

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WISHES EVERYONE A HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

THE HARDY'S ARE UP AND JUST LEAVING FOR ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAY ON THE SLOPES.  JUST LISTENING TO JOHN DENVER'S SONG, 'ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH IN COLORADO'.  -10 CELSIUS BUT WARMING TO +6 AT NOON.  NOT A CLOUD IN THE SKY, WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE, JUST HOPING MY LEGS HOLD UP A BIT BETTER THAN YESTERDAY.  HAVE TO STAY OFF THE DOUBLE BLACK DIAMONDS TODAY.

MARZ HAD SMOKED SALMON, SCRAMBLED EGGS, ENGLISH MUFFIN,TOAST, LATTE, FRESH BERRIES AND ORANGE JUICE, SHANNON HAD A HAM AND CHEESE OMELETTE, MILK AND FRESH BERRIES, AND THE CHEF, DR. HARDY HAD A HAM, TOMATO SANDWICH ON ENGLISH MUFFIN BREAD AND ORANGE JUICE.  DELICIOUS!  THAT SHOULD DO US UNTIL LUNCH AS THEY HAVE GREAT FOOD PREPARED IN MANY RESTAURANTS ON THE HILL.  YESTERDAY HAD GREAT HAMBURGERS CHARBROILED ON A OUTSIDE GRILL.

THERE MAY BE SOME THAT THINK THAT PERSONAL FAMILY INFORMATION HAS NO PLACE ON A PROFESSIONAL  BLOG.  FIRSTLY, I CARE ABOUT THOSE THAT MATTER TO ME AND I HAVE ALWAYS MARCHED TO MY OWN DRUMMER. SECONDLY, OUR PATIENTS ARE A PART OF OUR HEALTH CARE FAMILY.  WE TREAT OUR PATIENTS AS FRIENDS AND FAMILY.  THAT IS WITH THE UTMOST RESPECT AND CARE AS IF THEY WERE A FAMILY MEMBER, AND WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THEY LOVE OUR HUMAN TOUCH BLOGS.  SO THAT IS WHAT DR. HARDY CARES ABOUT, FAMILY, FRIENDS, STAFF AND OUR PATIENT FAMILY!   PROBABLY ANOTHER REASON WE OUR FOOT CARE CLINIC IS ULTRASUCCESSFUL!

SHANNON HARDY IS MY DAUGHTER AND SHINING STAR.  SHE HAS BEEN UNCONDITIONALLY ACCEPTED TO 2 PODIATRY SCHOOLS SO FAR, WHICH MEANS THAT IN A FEW SHORT YEARS SHE WILL BE JOINING MY FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS AS A PODIATRIST.  WE HOPE TO HAVE OUR SECOND FOOT CLINIC UP AND RUNNING BY THEN AS WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF LOOKING FOR THE APPROPRIATE COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE TO PURCHASE.

SHANNON IS AN AMAZING PERSON AND EXTREMELY HARD WORKING AND DEDICATED.  SHE STARTED TAKING FLYING LESSONS AT 13 AT TORONTO ISLAND AIRPORT.  SHE FLEW SOLO AT 14 YEARS OF AGE AND RECEIVED HER FLYING LICENCE AT THE MINIMUM AGE OF 17.  SHE ATTENDED BRANKSOME SCHOOL UNTIL SHE LEFT FOR SCOTLAND TO ATTEND ST. ANDREWS UNIVERSITY WHERE SHE EXCELLED.  SHE IS COMPLETING HER 4 YEAR HONOURS DEGREE IN SCIENCE THIS SPRING AND WILL BE ATTENDING PODIATRY SCHOOL NEXT FALL.
