Only in Canada You Say?

Greetings and salutations from me, here in the great white north. We call it that because once the snow starts to fall here, it sticks around for far too long, not to mention it gets ball freezing cold. 
Anyway, today is the Canadian Thanksgiving. So as per usual, since it falls on a Monday, we "celebrated" yesterday, which was Sunday.
We grabbed a dessert, some liquid libations, and headed off to my brothers house.Before we got there, we had to make a stop at the local grocery store to pic up some cranberry sauce and whipped cream. 
While the wife was in the store, I sat in the car observing life and sipping on a drink. As I sat there, a young lady who was, well she was fat, about 4 foot 8 high, and about the same wide, passed by the car and I wondered if I should throw a bucket of water on her. You see her hair looked like it was on fire. She had a black afro, and at the front at the top, it was pink and bright red! At first glance she did look like she was on fire,though.Sorry, I call them as I see them!

Maybe I'm just not into these new hair styles, but then I never have been much of a fashionista... I was dressed in my best Canadian Tuxedo, and if I do say so, looked dayum good for an old geezer! 

Canadian Tuxedo

The pic is a bit blurry, my wife took it with my new cellphone, yes, I broke down and finally went cellular! Anyway, she isn't the greatest at snapping pics! 
She was dressed very nice yesterday, and I snapped a pic of her, shes not the typical lady though, and hates for me to take pics of her. 




Notice the big glowing smile, yup, wasn't happy about the pic at all! --->






Well we eat till we couldn't eat anymore, packed ourselves up and headed home. It was a beautiful night out, and warm for this time of year, so we sat out on the deck for awhile. It was a great day, and a great Thanksgiving celebration! Today, on to new adventures, hope you all have a great day!

A Day Off, or an Off Day...

Many of us have those times we wonder why we even got out of bed. It's just one disaster after another, and you can't see the end of it all in sight. So my day has been going down the shitter since I opened my eyes and fell out of bed today. 

Actually things started going downhill BEFORE I got out of bed. First I woke at about 3:30am with a cramp in my left leg, which made me get out of bed and walk it off... so 15 minutes later I crawled back into my nest, only to get a cramp in the other leg. So, up I get, and I walked around the room for another 15 minutes. 

I debated going back to bed, because by this time, I was wide awake. Well I walked out to the fridge and poured a glass of milk, then decided it was worth a try. I must have fell back to sleep eventually, because the next time I opened my eyes, it was 8:15.

Meanwhile, my wife was snoring away, sounded much like a cat drowning in oatmeal. She was totally oblivious to my earlier situation... I swear she can sleep through just about anything. 

 
Anyway I got out of bed and started my morning rituals, turn on coffee pot, get mug, put in coffee, sugar... off to the bathroom. Pour water into mug, a little cream, stir, and off to the computer. I only do this to see if the world has ended or not. So far today it hasn't. Although if Trump and that little Korean, otherwise lovingly called Rocket Man by Trump keep their verbal diarrhea up, one can never be sure if the end is nigh... I'd suggest stealing an old wooden school desk for something to hide under, should the nukes start falling! 

After coming to the conclusion the Earth will go on for another day, I opened Twitter, and saw a Tweet about a news story from our local paper talking about our Transit system. It went on to say that there is now an app that lets you track the progress of your bus, letting you know where your bus is at any given moment. 

Well that rubbed me the wrong way, since there are so many dayum detours lately with the Transit system, because I'm often already on the bus, and have no idea where I'm at, every stop is somewhere I don't recognize or want to be at. You'd think after all these years, the city would have the roads completed.




In one part of the city they are creating a round-about. The scheduled date of completion, Aug. 31/2017. They overshot that, and they still aren't finished, want to know why? It appears as they were digging, they found and "artifact." The so called artifact is a can of beans... yes, literally a can of beans they think was lost by a worker on the original Ambassador bridge.The round about they are creating is almost under the bridge.  So they slowed things down to a crawl to see if any other "artifacts" would be found. I'm thinking they are hoping to find a spoon or fork to eat the beans with. If they are really lucky, they may find a can opener as well.

Before I leave, and leave I shall, I don't want to bore anyone to sleep, I wanted to mention that this morning, after my wife finally fell out of bed, she asked me to make breakfast. Breakfast is something I don't normally do, but you know what they say, Happy wife, happy life. So this morning I did breakfast. I made us breakfast wraps. 
I used 4 eggs, several strips of bacon, green and red pepper, onion, mushrooms, and two kinds of cheese, some mayo and salsa, they turned out GREAT! I am going to write the recipe out and put it in my Recipes page sometime soon. You'll love them! So the day hasn't been all bad. 

At the moment we are waiting for our usual friday call from our grandson,  Hurricane Braeden,  I'm sure the phone will soon ring...



well people, lets keep blogging and rolling along....



Have a Great Weekend!
