Thanks, friend

We visited the 519 where a small memorial for Orlando has been set up. Left a small sympathy card. Started crying again, and someone handed me a box of tissue kept on site for just such an occasion. Tender mercies at tender times. Thanks friend.

The city I live in

I am amazed and delighted by the city I live in, where the city librarian, Vickery Bowles, makes significantly more than the mayor, John Tory. Short article heresearchable list here.

Terrible vacation – Day 5

Kelly is still so sick we had to cancel the dinner reservations for Saturday. So, me, myself and I all headed out to the CN Tower’s Edge Walk for a mid morning thrill. I did not see any weddings while I was(n’t) there. What better way to see the city than to turn your back on it, a thousand feet up. Yep, extreme urban adventure, that’s totally me.  Thanks to Arlene, who suggested  my terrible vacation be called lamecation, subparcation and don’tcation. I think that fairly represents each face in the photo.

Terrible vacation – 4.2

Kelly is just sitting and reading a book, waiting patiently for food to arrive. I have no idea how she does it.

Terrible vacation – 4.1

Staring impatiently out the window, waiting for food delivery, for Kelly’s birthday dinner.

Terrible vacation – day 4

The real reason I am on vacation is that today is Kelly’s birthday. What was supposed to be a week of fun birthday-week touristy stuff in Toronto – the Art Gallery, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Aquarium, maybe the CN Tower, a trip to the Beach, romantic dinners out, eggs benedict for brunch – has failed miserably because Kelly has been very sick. She has made it outside for as long as about 60 minutes at a time, before having to come back inside to wallow in her misery. And to her credit, she knows that if she showed up to any restaurant coughing like that, she’d ruin everyone’s meal.

So, let’s turn it back around, and have a FANTASTIC (if photoshopped) birthday. Why look at all the fun she’s had, and it’s not even 9am and she’s still actually asleep!

Astronaut Kelly

Astronaut Kelly

Kelly flew to the moon, rescued Sandra Bullock (off camera, of course, so as not to spoil the film) and then posed for a quick photo before heading back to earth.

Skydiving Kelly

Skydiving Kelly

Kelly not only skydived all the way from the moon, beating Felix Baumgartner’s record – and not even needing her astronaut outfit – she helped out two guys who otherwise would have lost their way because they didn’t know up from down!

Zoo Keeper Kelly

After skydiving, Kelly made a pit stop in England, where she fed a sloth at the zoo. That took a while…

 

Tour de France Kelly

And since she was “in the neighbourhood”, she then zipped over to Paris and won the Tour de France which was held early this year just for her birthday!

Killer whale Kelly

Kelly then swam back across the pond in spectacular fashion with this help of this friendly killer whale, Bob.  Upon arrival back home (the belugas helped her navigate the St. Lawrence Seaway), Kelly then crawled back into bed for a well-deserved nap.

Happy birthday Kelly!

Terrible vacation – day 3.5

I managed to get out of the house today, between the windstorm and the rainstorm. I hit the Dollar Store where I found eyelashes for cats. Glue included! They even came in multiple colour themes like Midnight Ocean.

eyelashes for cats, totally real and not fake!

I thought ‘This is it! A fantastic way to make my vacation rock than to put eyelashes on the cats! I stood there daydreaming for a moment, imaging how beautiful our little “Ella” Eleganza would look:

And then I thought about Reese. That went dark quickly. I put the eyelashes down and slowly backed away.

Terrible vacation – day 3

It’s a very blustery, nay, its like a windy day out today (authors Frank Asch and Devin Asch). Day 3 of my terrible vacation, and it’s blowing me away.
