And I Thought My Life Was Boring

Out for a walk when I came across a bunch of people standing in a field.

I went, no way.

But way!

They were all Pokemon'ing, or whatever it is.

Then, as we continued on - like your eyes get adjusted to the dark - we saw them everywhere. Even middle aged suburban women!

I tried communicating with some of them ("There's one on my leg!  Get it off!") but they were having none of it.

I'm guessing there must be at least a million dollar prize for who ever kills/eats/liquefies (?) the most.

My life's looking no so pathetic......

Hey, They Forgot The Best Part




And by that I mean, the rest of the state motto:


Those Marketers, always taking short cuts.

Exactly My Reaction......

 ...when my dentist told me I needed a root canal.



And then last month, more good news!



Dentures?
Let's get the party started!

My Favourite

Went to very nice American, family style restaurant for breakfast yesterday.




They serve breakfast, lunch and - my favourite meal - diner.

And in keeping with the family style theme, one of our group had been in for breakfast the day before.

When the waitress took his order, he said "I'll have the same as yesterday."

She said, "And how would I know what that was?"

He replied, "Because you served me."

She said, "Well, honey, I've done a lot of drinking since yesterday."

Just like Mom would say.


[Thanks to an eagle eyed reader for spotting the sign.]

[And future thanks to the other eagle eyed reader for wanting to write a song about it.]

Good News

Came across a good sign yesterday.

And that good sign is a good sign - that the good old El Mocambo is not going the way of the Dodo Bird.

This is the Palm Tree sign to which they are referring.

The El Mocambo is, of course, a famous bar in downtown Toronto.



None the more famous for an impromptu appearance by the good old Rolling Stones back in '77.

I think that is Maggie Trudeau (Captain Sunshine's Mom) in the second row.

Coincidence Or Convenience?

Hospital.....


Funeral Home....


Across the street from one another......

Yikes!

And this is the hospital I was born in.
