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.

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

You could wait forever

The Wiz

Who knew the CBC had advance clips from NBC's Christmas musical, The Wiz?   

We're not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy....
Urine trouble now....

Among the many tweets and twitters concerning a PC candidate's exit from the election race after being caught peeing in a homeowner's coffee cup, was this one ....

Janis Millar

Laughter is always the best medicine and if that's what it's going to take to throw the cons off stride then start laughing everyone. Everyone should go out and buy one coffee mug and when the con candidate comes to your door just hand it to them with a big smile. If you can find one with a zany saying all the better. Start laughing people.

Call it the Tempest-in-a-Teacup strategy.
