Girls night Christmas Party

Friday night and about 20 GREAT girls are having their annual Christmas party. Can’t imagine what the conversation is about…..

All I know is that they are good friends….and having a good time together. The group has been together for years and reciprocate with a party at Lisa’s in Port Dover in the summer. Good girls, all of them.

Here at my place…..a good movie and some decent wine.

Watched  John Skow today at work…he is a good man.  He puts his heart into his judgements… impresses me constantly.

Met  Mike Barry at the Chapters store the other night. I think he is one of the best lawyers in the city….no doubt. A really NORMAL guy….and a professional as well.  Inducted into the UWO sports “Hall of Fame” about a year or two ago.   Impressive….

Tomorrow night is Steve Dubarry’s (probably spelled it wrong) Christmas party. I think that I will go with Mo, as my reasons for not going are weak. …..

Still up at 1:20 am….go figure.

Little bit ‘o snow on the ground…..not much.

Sad to see that Paul Carter died in the last few weeks….weird how you see someone every few days or so, and all of a sudden they are gone from the earth.

Listening to Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” right now…..1:30 am….

…trying to make some front page drive in news……

…livin by the sword….

……you get it.

Tomorrow gets me walking the dog… the sun.   Good stuff.  Fresh air, exercise  and all that…..

Just a few more thing to get for Christmas…and then just the seasonal food things.

…with autumn closin in….

…night moves….night moves.

Sunday in the Big City

Went out shopping today for Christmas stuff. Got a few things, still much to be found. Assisted Mo with her decorations outside and took Riley out for her constitutional. Solidified a few more details for the trip south, and began to look for a “netbook” computer, to allow me to communicate while I am there.

Met a guy today at Chapters who was riding a BMW 800 M/C. Asked him all kinds of questions, and he advised that he was “more than happy” with the bike as a “get around” cycle. Beee-utiful machine!

Great weather the last few days, nice if it would last into the New Year, but not likely. 

Got the roof done (cedar)…..and the outside work finished prior to snowfall. Looking forward to the 2009 “Chili Cookoff” at the Byron Legion this month. Entering a crock of chili (actually Mo is) for the first time. See what happens. Should be fun. 

Went over to Michigan shopping last weekend….


Port Huron, then Shelbyville, and finally Birch Run. had a nice night over, and came back with a bunch of stuff for Christmas. Had to pay sales tax at the Canadian border for the first time in a long while….

Hard to fathom the differences between Canada and the U.S. just a couple hours away….language differences, food, lifestyles….

Stopped at “Tonys” restaurant in Birch Run. All I can say is….”ridiculous!” 

Check out the “you tube” vids on the place. ;)
