A HOLIDAY WEEKEND IN CANADA_Canada--Canada-Canada--
It is --FAMILY DAY on Monday--
Well, Himself is "off" on Monday anyway----but---for families, it is a time to hit the ski hill--- go ice fishing, or ski-doing--
In fact, there will be a Fishing Derby on Horne Lake, in Town, with huge monetary prizes---
The city drills the holes in the lake, and people sit by a hole in the ice, trying to catch the longest fish, with something like $30,000.00 as 1st prize.
It is really not my "cup of tea" (Mom used to say that!)_
I do enjoy the Grandkids coming out however-----no school for them that day.
I must tell yu that last night--about 10pm, I was "vegging" on my recliner in the living room--sorta drifting off and on to a sleep mode--
All of a sudden, Beau jumped up barking and ran across the room to the front door--- and--in walked son #3 , the Policeman son, in his Police Uniform--
He "scarred the liver out of me!"--(another of Mom's expressions)-
He had been doing a "ride program"--- with another officer, and had in his hand 2 shopping bags, full of tea, coffee, chocolate bars--- and all sorts of things, that his daughter is selling for their high school for a trip to Quebec--
Man! One never knows what will happen next in this house!
Of course I bought enough to make a dent in his bag--gave him a G'Ale for himself and his partner out in the car---and---I will give those chocolate bars back to his children on Sunday--
So, FAMILY DAY----a day with more time to get outside--to walk--- to be happy--
Lord love duck!-- I love it!
