Happy Quebec Day!

Or St. Jean Baptiste Day, or the Fête nationale du Québec if you prefer! I may celebrate with poutine. Other than that, it's a slow news day and I need to get out of my pajamas and into the shower.

I notice I don't get as many comments when I upload cute and cuddly animal photos, so today I bring you weirdness from our cross-Canada drive last year (the quasi-epic move from BC to QC, which was not quite as epic as the move from NS to BC in 2003!)

Excuse me, there is a cuppa tea out there with my name on it.


  1. Good thing Gordon had a clean nose!

  2. I think you said it all when you called him Long-suffering. Good use of the word. :o) Also, you need to come to FL in May and get pictures of our Love Bug season.

    I couldn't find a great picture of a car filled with bugs but this link give you more info.


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
