Thursday Tidbits

Yup, it’s true. The streets are paved with gold in Alberta. Had to see it with my own eyes.

Did you ever notice that economy class travellers don’t get the same treatment as first class? I just love when you’re airborne and the flight attendant announces that a hot meal will be served shortly in first class. It’s like they’re rubbing it in your nose. Meanwhile, the rest of the cattle are getting water and peanuts. Anyway, I couldn’t let this pass. We flew Tango from Toronto to Edmonton so I hastily penned a story called “Last Tango in Toronto”. I’ll be posting this soon.

If any of you read this week’s Casket, you would have seen my story “Uncontrolled Remote”. Those of you with delicate constitutions might be offended by my use of the word “arsehole” but when it comes to remotes, you just have to call a spade a spade. I will be posting this story on Saturday.

I received a lot of nice comments on my story about the 1000 aprons. It was a bit more on the serious side but obviously struck a chord with several of you. It’s really worth your while to go up to Bethany and see the display.

Lots of new stuff. I was in the Credit Union on “cheque day” earlier this week. I should have turned heel and beat a hasty retreat but sensing a story opportunity, jumped into the queue. It’s quite the spectacle. Every conversation was about one of two things. Go ahead and guess. You’re right. The weather… ” awful weather we’re having” or “jeez, but it’s muggy”. And ailments. You will hear every conceivable complaint about every body part if you get in a long enough lineup. The story is called “Chequed”.

The long weekend is almost upon us. Have a great one.
