Long night

Barack Obama offered what we can aspire to.

Donald Trump shows us who we really are.

Lucifer isn't just a hot sauce ...

July 23 2016

Donald Trump's GOP convention is over.

It made for a week of fascinating viewing on MSNBC, CNN and Fox, each with a twist on the line-up ... from the Ultimate Fighting Dude to subcontractors to the Hillary-murdered-my-son Mom.

Weeping. Screaming. Lynch mobs. Code Pink ladies in the balconies.  I'm afraid I logged dozens of hours, slack-jawed in front of the TV.

Melania's little oops was adorable.

Recurring audience shots of red faces in even-redder gag wigs and hats was well worth the price of admission--that price being a substantial number of brain cells. Who doesn't enjoy General Flynn, whose appearance on Bill Maher's show the night-after was a nice encore for the frightened. 

If Mike Pence is not a robot, he should be.  His sad eyes, like Chris Christie's, show what his ambition has signed on for. The body language between Pence and Trump is hilarious. Sealed with an air kiss.

The candidate himself is beyond words.

The Republican hoohah was missing only an appearance by Lucifer, God of the Outer Darkness.

"Yes," he would thunder. "Hillary worships me."

If Ben Carson--Lucifer's spotter--lurks anywhere near a Trump White House, pray they give him nothing to play with but toys.

But I imagine the Politburo of Trump Children will see to that.

Scratch Don Jr, who will dance on Bill de Blasio's ass in the NYC mayor's race.

If I were young Barron Trump, I would change my name soon. Pray the witness relocation program can rescue him from this hotbed of ego and ambition. 

And oh, poor Hillary.

I'm not surprised, just disappointed in Clinton's choice of Tim Kaine--a bland, pudgepoop of a running mate. Was Lucifer not available?

Yes, my fellow cynics ... two women would have been Too Much, and Cory Booker would be PC's Memories of Obama sauce. So no Bernie, Warren or Booker. Why deliver anything to the base in this all-important Trump showdown? The Democratic candidate picks the establishment, golly-jeepers white guy. Here, pass the mayo.

Hill and Tim will be trounced in every news cycle.

It will not be pretty.

And with every Breaking News TV banner, Trump will grow stronger.

I think Hillary Clinton has taken an impossible and dangerous risk.

Not even one hand clapping.

It's just an election, right?  Right.

When the wolf's at your door ....

Stocks are in the dumpster.
Prices bubble higher.
Our loonie sings a bittersweet swan song.

Is there no escape from oil dumps and Trump?

Why yes, there is.

"When the wolf's at your door

There's a bluebird in store ... "

Happy New Year!

Enter the new year....


It's 5 a.m. Christmas Day, driving thru Algonquin Park. The lakes are still open. The New Year seems as ominous as the old.

Cookie season

When a gingerbread man breaks an arm or stabs his leg with a knife, you have to let him vent ....
All dog cookies must have smiles on their faces, for Christmas....

Parka Patrol

For CBC Radio fanatics who've asked about Parka Patrol, there is new evidence it existed.

The 54-episode series ran Saturday nights for two years in the '80s. Call it an odd blues fantasy, worshipped by forest rangers, loons and bath water boilers in the Canadian Outback.

Do you hear wolves? Me too. Hear them at....

Great Pumpkin puck puck


Hooray! It's fall cider time!


County Cider

Spent a week roaming around Prince Edward County, Picton and Sandbanks Provincial Park on Lake Ontario.
Third fall trip down there, the prettiest sideroads in autumn.
Most of the pics below and above come from there.

Blood orange cider from County Cider ... pumpkins too.

Hilltop heaven




Fences make nice neighbors

                     Is there a restaurant in Canada that doesn't have this sign posted somewhere on the premises?
