An amazing variety of cacti and other succulents. Scroll back up to see some.
All shapes and sizes. Some even looking quite rude. According to some of our Tilley hatted crowd anyway....
Okay, too many to make comments about them all.
It was also advertized as being quite succulent.
Not that's there's anything........

From the airport hotel. Wow, these iPhones are not too shabby.
So I guess no more "fog of life" shots for this blog.
From their observation deck, you get a stiff next from looking up at all the buildings.
Ah well, this is why the Westerner's hate all us smug Torontonians. Well, one of the reasons, anyway.

Was out west last week, in Kananaskis. This is not something you necessarily want to see while out for a leisurely stroll.
But more importantly, do the bears know that they are supposed to stay on that side of the tape....?
Let's not wait to find out.
Although they do have sharp noses. And not in the good-sense-of-smell way either.
And something else we found out - deer don't like broccoli.
How do I know? Some of the fellows at our meeting took out some items from our snack tray.
The pastries went over very well. One guy offered up broccoli. One deer took a sniff and poked him in the stomach. With that sharp nose
As if to say "Are you kidding me?" "Are you jerking me around?"
I hope he didn't put the broccoli back. I don't like it either.....

Quebec students are on strike in Canada, protesting an increase in tutition fees.
They already pay the lowest fees in Canada.
When the fees increases are complete, they will still be paying the lowest tuition in Canada.
I just know all our future government employees will come to work with a great attitude.
I'm so proud......

To engage people in conversation, I heard them ask the couple walking in front of me "Do you like animals?"
They replied "Oh yes, we do! But I'm so sorry, we are on our way to a meeting."
I'm surprised they didn't ask me anything.....
