November – that’s a wrap!
And in Canada, it was a November sans precipitation – lacking rain or snow (mainly snow, being Canada and all…). Only one day of wet, but it was enough to cause 544 accidents from start to finish of the sudden snowfall.
Mrs. That Dan Guy and I happened to be out that day, and a trip that would normally take half an hour took two and a half hours. I’ve still got parts of the steering wheel embedded in my palms. My braking leg is paralyzed into a stance not unlike a dog at a fire hydrant.
In unrelated news, yesterday we had our Big National Football Championship, and what a nail-biter it was, being decided by a field goal in the last two seconds. Well, there was much more drama than that, and enormous heartache for the losing team, who had already begun to celebrate their championship win before a penalty strangled their dreams, and rolled it down an embankment into a gully of despair. For my money, the right team won. What a thriller!
Gotta go, we’re getting the house ready to greet December – who seems to be bringing along an appropriate level of Canadian chill, for this time of year. Otherwise known as frostbite.Chow for now!!
