Holiday HOHO


I have to blog!!! I need to blog!! …well no not really. However, I have an anecdote.

S and I were out for a much needed sanity break from life. We were having a lovely chat and food and were heading to the theatre to see what all the poop was about with Casino Royale. I am not a fan of the ‘new’ guy, but people have continued to hound me not to make a rash decision and see it before I make up my mind.

So I went, but I digress.

Where was I? Oh yes. S and I were on our way over to the theatre. As we were crossing a crosswalk, a car comes down the road. It was a little too fast for my liking, and didn’t really wait for us to get across the road. S and I could have easily been clipped. Well, we could have...

“What is so strange?” you may ask. “In Calgary that happens consistently.” Well, I have to point out to give the complete impact of this that I walk with a cane. In the winter, I walk slowly (well always slowly, but in winter more slowly…almost backwards).

This car had a DISABLED placard in the window. Call me bizarre, but does anyone else see the irony in this?
Ahh the Holidays! Bringing out the vindictive and ill mannered in all of us.
I am not a scrooge, but this time of year is difficult in so many ways.

SO, I wish all of you in Blog land, a very peaceful, restful, fun holiday, and enough booze not to kill your relatives.

Happy Holidays!!!!

I wonder if the placard referred to the driver's physical state, or...
