It's 250 km, 155 miles to Victoria. I'm told Canada tried having Thanksgiving after the US, but this made the turkeys jumpy and we were too slow to catch them swaddled in our parkas and muck-luks!

We tried getting them drunk the night before but Mothers Against Drunk Drivers stopped us on principle of it being unethical.

Good luck with the fridge Geraldine. Yes, I missed the rodeo. Got too wrapped up in edits, luckily the tickets were free. I have to finish the edits for the Sudanese kids, I was looking @ those as well.

Well Mike I have not looked at my book since May!! I had only done about 20,000 words. I really need to get on with it but since I was on hols for the 3 weeks I have not been working on it.

I need a kick up the whatsit to get me working on it again but then I am away for 2 weeks again in November.

I wish I had your enthusiasm - well yes I do, in that it's a book that needs writing, but it is hard to get back into it.

I have the enthusiasm, but I function on Tucson time. What Tony Hillerman in his books calls "Indian time."

Awww flying rats.....mind you, seagulls are pretty much vermin with wings and feathers plus they nick your sandwiches.

I guess that is true Anne. :-( Don't you hate when health gets in the way? Tell your body to fly right and not like a flying rat.

Actually, I am reading another one of the Sharpe books by Bernard Cornwell, Sharpe's Tiger and vultures are described as flying rats. Probably a good description. Where do flying squirrels fit in.

That reminds me, I was in Holland Park watching the squirrels and I had a half eaten coffee flavoured Kit Kat in my bag (mmmmm) which was sitting open on the ground behind me. I turned around and a squirrel was sitting IN my bag eating the Kit Kat!
Has anyone ever seen a squirrel on a suger/caffeine high? Normal squirrels are as fast as lightning, this one became supersonic!! Pretty funny stuff!!!
