Sunday Funnies

In Canada last week there were 4 by-elections held. The governing Conservatives won two seats, the Bloc Quebecois one and the New Democratic Party one. Michael Ignatieff's Liberals, who a month ago were itching to bring down the government and force a general election, came up empty. Meanwhile, the debacle of long line ups and short supplies of H1N1 vaccines continued apace both north and south of the border. And finally, there would seem to be a difference of opinion out there respecting the economic recovery in America.

Send a search party... and be sure they've got some H1N1 vaccines with 'em!

Cat Lady: That pretty much sums it up!

That old lady standing in line isn't far from the truth from what I hear. I once had a boss about like the doc in the last cartoon. He didn't care if you had pneumonia and a 103 degree fever. You'd better be at work or else...he died at 42.

John: That's actually a Canadian cartoonist from the Ottawa Citizen. He's got a great handle on political and wold events and is usually very, very funny.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
