Believe It Or Not!

Posted by 2 on

Believe it or not, there is an annual “World Naked Bike Ride” in Toronto and I have the images to prove it! Please beware: these photos are not for the faint of heart. Please don’t confuse the above event with the new Tail Wags “Mothers Against Naked Riding” (M.A.N.R.) campaign.

Trying To Maintain a Sense of Humour Today

Posted by 2 on

I am trying to maintain my sense of humour today but it’s been a challenge: The puppy rolled in dog poop while on our walk and when I went to pick him up, I got covered in it. While trying to conduct a phone interview for a live taping on Global Talk Radio, the following occurred: i)               Dogs started barking at a squirrel in the backyard. ii)             Phone line cut out 3 times. Thanks Rogers! I’m switching back to Bell Canada. iii)            Elte carpets rang the doorbell. They were 4 hours early for a service call. iv)            The golf company...
