Chronologically speaking, the title sums up our activities of late.

Toronto Sun Newspaper :
Paul McCallum, the B.C. Lions’ ageless 41-year-old kicker, stepped up and nailed a 53-yard field goal for a 33-31 victory as time expired Saturday night. McCallum fell to the turf at new B.C. Place Stadium and was mobbed by teammates as the crowd of 30,622 went wild. Just another night in the CFL. “I knew what I did wrong on the kick before,” said McCallum of the 45-yard attempt Taylor took back. “So I knew what I had to do right.”
The Lions (8-6) extended their win streak to seven games and take over top spot in the West Division.
|We're No. 1 - well, in the Western Division for the time being!|
|What does road rage have to do with tires?|
While I was enjoying the afternoon and evening at the football game in downtown Vancouver, Jeanette and good friend Marg were in Fort Langley enjoying the annual Cranberries Festival. Jeanette chose to park at the Fort parking lot. As she approached the angle parking spot, a road raged younger fella - along with his wife - madly drove against a one way to overtake Jeanette who had signaled and was preparing to park. He tried to block her entry as he tried to reverse into the spot. Because he had driven to the parking spot against a one way, he could not angle park. He had to reverse into the spot. Jeanette was there first and proceeded to park.
Well, the idiot went completely nutty; yelling, honking his horn, swearing, cussing, threatening, etc. Jeanette and Marg quietly walked off. They are not the type to cuss and argue, nor to add fuel to a raging dispute. They both wondered if our vehicle could suffer the wrath of their fury though. Well, they were right! Upon their return the front passenger tire was flat.

|Well trained herding dogs - and their handlers - were vying for trophies|
|These highly trained dogs were incredibly talented. Talk about listening and following their handlers commands? Unbelievable!|
|This dog will respond even without verbal commands. She just knows what her master expects from her facial expressions or the movement of the herding stick. Most, if not all, of you RV owners with dogs would have enjoyed this event.|
Thanks for dropping by. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
