Last ditch option


The relationship I have with the pool is a love hate relationship. I hate suiting up, driving the obstacle course of 97, getting my stiff swollen joints into the cold water and doing it all in reverse again once done. I love the extra strength I feel I have acquired from these wet sessions, love the 3 days a week I spend with my BFF and love the fact that the chlorine has essentially dissolved my ugly bathing suits and I can now shop for something new. As I see it the pros have won.

Trending.... Toe Thongs

It puzzles me and confuses me and yes somewhat distresses me when I get large Toe Thong orders. As you might recall dear reader, my jewelry slave and I whilest playing with my beads and possibly under the influence of Peach Bellini's, developed the design of the Toe Thong. We thought it was a "cute" beach accessory not thinking the Yoga, pool and now Belly Dancing ladies would jump on the Thong bandwagon. So....30 pairs were ordered and with my dear slaves help 30 were made and today 30 were declared SOLD.....Why....why???

My most favorite Blog...please visit....and be amazed.

Brian and Vickie are two of the most amazing ecologists I have ever met.Their Blog, The Happy Trappers,lives a life I have dreamed of since I was 8. I love their Philosophy, "We are a Presence on our land there are some people who think it is up for grabs (like our Northwest Passage). We trap in a remote area of Northern B.C. 100 km from the nearest road. We fly in by Beaver Bush Plane and stay here for long periods of time. We are caretakers of the land and this is how we live." They have built their Line Cabins from scratch and gather and prepare recipes from local fare (berries,fish,meat). If you assume they are Thirty somethings trying to find themselves, you would be mistaken. Brian and Vickie are in their sixties and have lived the land all their lives. It is not a recent awakening for is who they are and always have been...Stewards of the land.Thank goodness we have people like this...

Thankfull Remembering

This little boy brought back a flood of memories of March Pasts during D's days in the Militia. Those important parades brought tears to my eyes many times when I would see the mix of men from the Young soldiers still in their teens and early twenties to Jake who had served in the early wars, face solemn and tears running down his face.Such sacrifices made for our freedom....thank you...
