Fall is Here and Winter is Coming.

2016-10-22-10-10-27The temperature is dropping and so are the leaves.

Winter is coming.  But that’s okay.

It’s getting harder and harder to find Chloe’s orange ball among the leaves, but she’ll still run and run and play and play until she’s ready to drop (or I freeze first!).

The changes in the seasons are what makes Canada such a great place to live.  And living up here in “the country” makes it even more spectacular.

God is good.  Have a great day!

Cars, Bikes, Pedestrians and Craziness

trafficI’ve been working downtown on a contact for over a year now and I’m amazed I haven’t seen more accidents than I have.  Every day, in my walk from Union Station up to Queen Street and back again in the evening, I have witnessed hundreds of “near misses”, but surprisingly few accidents.  That, in itself, amazes me.

Between pedestrians who pay absolutely no attention to the walk/don’t walk signs and the crosswalk locations and have their heads down staring at their phones, to the cyclists who think that just because they have a bike lane they own the road and can ignore the yellow and red lights, turn into the oblivious pedestrians (even when said obliviots actually have the right of way), and the cars that cut off other traffic to make turns and use yellow lights as the signal that means “jump into the intersection to block the traffic, the cyclists and the pedestrians”, and those same pedestrians who step off the curb early and block the car who has jumped into the intersection, I’m amazed someone hasn’t gotten killed, injured, or just plain shot.

People ask me if I enjoy living in the country now.  The answer, every day, is “You bet!!!”

TTFN…. If I make it out alive!

New Postal Code Confusion


Well, Canada Post, in their infinite wisdom, have decided that we don’t change our address often enough (we’ve only had 4 addresses in the last 33 years), so on August 15th, 2016 they decided that our Postal Code would change from the old L0G 1E0 to the new L4A 1Z3. As of today, THEY still . . . → Read More: New Postal Code Confusion

Jokes — Yes, I Know They’re Really Bad

Found this list of oldies the other day and I couldn’t resist posting them.

An “Interesting” Month

As some of you know, it’s been a very ‘interesting’ few weeks for us in the Lahn household with some ups, and some downs.

On Friday, Feb 5th, we picked up an 8 week old Border Collie puppy that we’ve named Chloe. She is a joy with all her energy and we can hardly wait . . . → Read More: An “Interesting” Month
