Canada Day

Happy Canada Day!

As I sit sipping my Tim Horton’s coffee, with the Hip and the Ladies in the background, reading the Globe and cooling a two-four of Alexander Keith’s for this afternoon, I am filled with a sense of appreciation for our great country.

Stratford

We spent the afternoon and evening on Saturday in Stratford. The town is small but quite nice, with lots of little shops and restaurants. After eating a tasty caramel apple and some very tasty chocolate, we shopped around and bought a few pieces of art for our house, all at reasonable prices. Four small pictures for the kitchen are of fat French chefs, and one for the living room is a print of the hebrew blessing said when you are called up to the Torah. All add a nice touch of personality to the house.

This was mostly because the person doing the choosing didn’t realize I was a huge hockey nut. Hopefully we’ll get to go again next year, and hopefully I’ll get to play; it would be amazing to play on the same ice as the pros.

Even so, the skate itself was a thrill. Stepping out on to the perfectly prepared ice, looking up at thousands of empty seats, and experiencing the atmosphere of an NHL rink from the other side of the glass was a great experience.
