|I’d thought I would be done with it within two or three days, but my cold seems to be more persistent. Yesterday, at Thanksgiving, I was doing just fine – until the evening when everything got worse. Went to bed very early and took an Ibuprofen, which kept things under control for most of the night. Feel sorry for Bea who probably lost her sleep as well.|
Thanksgiving was a hot day and what else can a fellow do than sitting in the shade. But hey, it’s better than a cold Norwester blowing from Quebec.
Speaking of Quebec, did you know that the province of Quebec has a language police? I’m not kidding. If you run a business there you have to put your business name into French. That goes also for Walmart, Best Buy, Target and all the other big shots. The name must show what they are selling. If the merchant doesn’t change its name fines up to $20,000 are looming. A few of the big outlets have started to fight the thing in court. I really hope they win. What happens in Quebec is going straight towards a dictatorship. What’s next? No English learning in schools, or only French speaking folks are riding public transit? It seems to fit in with what’s going on in Alabama where separate schools for blacks and whites are in the discussion.
The fact that it goes on right smack in the middle of Democratic Canada and the Feds don’t do nothing against it is outrageous. You can read about here.
Ok, I had to let off steam. It has been boiling for a while. Now I’m feeling good.
Despite my cold I went along yesterday with our friends to the Golden Corral for Thanksgiving Dinner. Normally, we would have it right here in Camp, but this year not many people are here, and so it was decided to go eating outside. It was all good and of course, I ate too much. There was no more food for this guy, the rest of the day.
I had been under the shower and was now standing in the deep-water tub, trying to get the water out from my eyes. Doing that, I accidently pushed my glasses too much of my face and they disappeared in the water. Everybody who knows me, also knows that I’m a blind fish without my glasses. And of course, I would never ever been able to find them in 5ft. deep water. A gentleman being with me in the tub dived after them and brought them up again. Thank you, thank you for being there at the right time!
Thanks for visiting and stay cool out there!
