Wild West Pancakes

Still Stampede Week here in Calgary - although we have yet to officially partake. I have ironically been involved personally in my day-job role with service club pancake breakfasts, well outside of the actual fair grounds. This morning, at an ungodly early hour, I am off to yet another one.

If you peek over to the right of this post you can peruse some of my Tweets from yesterday's breakfast, in what seemed to be the backstage area for taping of the Mad Men TV series. Or the Camel manufacturing plant staff break room. Considering how much effort has gone into "stop smoking" efforts around North America, this part of the city clearly missed the memo. Adults smoked. Younger adults smoked. Even dogs with tattoos and eye patches sneered at me through a filter-tipped haze of smoke rings and baked bean farts.

That may have actually been Crude Pirate, who turned up to help celebrate our Western heritage - or should I say "Rrrr Western He-rrrr-itage"??

Always entertaining - who knows what adventure awaits today amid the pancakes, syrup, and sun-baked wicker cowboy hats??

Rest assured, you'll likely get to read about it here tomorrow morning :-)

Chow for now!

Man, between the 2 of us, this coming week is pure still bouncing back and forth between the 2 roles and your role extending out from early AMs to late feels like we are working 4 jobs...ah well, see you around sometime Cowboy!
