Only In Canada, Eh?

Can't get enough Olympic coverage at home?

Come on down to your local airport!

On my way out to Calgary, they had set up a ringside viewing area. Comfy chairs and big screen TV's. True Canadian, eh?

And it was funny listening to fellow rockheads politely trying to explain curling to some of our American neighbours.

Only In Calgary, Eh?

Got yerself a busted up foot? Hell yeah, we'll fix it for ya.

But first we gotta stop at my buddy's to pick up some topsoil.

You know, in my travels I've found that the most interesting people always drink triples.

On Thursdy's.

And also in my travels, these bars always seem to be in the nicest parts of town.

Of course, Calgary has a leg up on most cities when it comes to nice parts of town.

All's Well......

Well, Calgary ain't all bad when you can end the day the right way.

Now if only our boys had stuck it to them damn Yanks.

But at least we have a chance for redemption Sunday!!

Just What The Doctor Ordered

Boy, if that's not enough to spot your dick - all day martini's, on a Sunday. Ouch!

No wonder nobody likes Mondays.

Not Bad...

This is the ad on the hoarding around a new - another - honking mega condo down the block.

I like the editorializing someone has done.

I'm posting this as it is my kind of line, except that it is clever and humorous.

I hope the builder pays more attention to the details of construction than marketing.

Palate Cleanser...

...after the nachos and before the wings.

Oh, and, of course, before the nachos and after the wings, too.

In case anyone was concerned that no beer shots had appeared in a while.....

Ohhhh.....Professional Body Piercing....

I wish I'd seen this place before going to "Moe's House of Body Piercing".

Oww. It still hurts to sit down.

And you can tell this is a professional place of body piercing because, errr, it says so.

Canadian Justice!

To save you some reading, the shocking part of this story is that, after beating and stabbing this guy to death, these poor young men will have to be on probation for a full two years!

We Canadians don't fool around when it comes to handing out punishment. I believe the judge also warned them, don't kill another guy unless you want two more years of probation. And he looked at each one of them. That got their attention!

But really, they had it coming.

I can see stabbing a guy ten or twelve times. Who wouldn't?

But 31? Come on! Give your heads a shake. You're darn lucky he didn't give you two and a half years probation!

And, of course, since they were under 18 at the time of the murder, Canadian law prohibits them from being identified.

So they are now out & about among us, doing whatever. Going to school, going to work, partying, killing other people.

We don't know. We don't ask. La la la......

Kill Them First

Wha' Chew Lookin' At, Willis?


This little guy is thinking, shouldn't you be working?

Double click and, boy, you can see he's really giving me the evil eye. And I thought my office window had one way glass.

He's probably also thinking that he should be mingling with the Egret in the previous post.

And I agree with him! Brrrrrr!

[One safety issue that I am going to pass on to the City of Toronto Roads Dept is that street lamp, anchored in the middle of Wynford Drive. Man, I hit that thing every day!]

Hey? Where Is Everybody?

It's great down here. Squawk!

Just to give you - okay, me, and I guess anyone on the Eastern US seaboard - a little taste of better times......

Well, only five or six more months to go.

Truly Sad....

....when legendary hockey icons have to walk around with name tags on their heads.

In case you are wodnering, they had some kind of protective bullet proof glass around all of them. To keep some lunatics out, I guess.

Oh, and you can just make out my fingerprints on the glass there. I won't say where.

Now this is where you could use those 3D glasses!

Just Like Big Screen TV's

The longer you wait..... when to buy, when to buy?........

[These were all in my SPAM folder. Just like everybody gets. Right? Right?]

More Brrrrr.....

It's everywhere.

Here's what's I found out in Calgary this week. This is the mid afternoon greeting we got. And it was like this for the full hour and a half drive.

I knew there was a reason I left....

What A Difference A Day Makes!
Okay, so maybe I shouldn't have left.

In Kananaskis country, you feel enveloped in a ring of dramatic mountains. You really are in Big Sky country.

And a little outdoor hot tub never hurt anybody.

Although when we were in it at night, I could only imagine what the near by bears must be thinking.....

Hey, fondue!
