Happy Canada Day, eh?

What do you do, play pin the tail on the mountie?

Happy Canada Day, dufus! And good luck fishing, golfing or whatever you're doing for an excuse to drink beer all weekend.

(P.S. Party hearty, but too much beer will make you a farty Marty.)

Well we didn't need an excuse Friday. Whitey, Sir Drinksalot and I just drank beer. Today was golf day. It wasn't pretty.

Those are all good activities.I'll have to remember them next year, Chris. This year we just played hide and seek with our beavers.

Thanks, Quirks. I'll remember to give you a salute on Monday.

All of the above!

Sounds like you got a repeat on the fireworks this morning (due to hangover), went goofing instead of golfing and did a lot of 'duffing' (again, due to hangover). Hey, so long as it was fun (I hope)!

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
