Day #22,753-755

Walk km 16,331-16,343: around Stanley Park
Walk km 16,343-16,347: short walks downtown
Walk km 16,347-16,360: Meetup walk from Laurentian to Lake City

Movie #2470: Happy Gilmore (1996, Dennis Dugan)

Not very funny but there are a few chuckles here and there. They claim that's it's funnier than Caddyshack. Damning with faint praise.

Book #489: The Handle (1966, Donald E Westlake (as Richard Stark))

Usually when people go back to an old formula later in life it's just a shadow of its former self. That doesn't hold true to Donald E Westlake and the Parker novels. His reprise of Parker novels in the late 90s/early 2000s were much superior to his earlier set.
This one is fine. A quick read in the hard-boiled vein but nothing special.

TV Episode #100: Have Gun Will Travel - The Mark Of Cain (1962, Andrew V McLaglen)
TV Episode #101: Highway Patrol - Expose (1959, Jack Herzberg)
