We had lunch and then I dragged her to the grocery store ... all the hot spots!
We met Gord at the Bungalow for a couple drinks.

I got the collar on Morgan and, for the most part, it freaked him out.
It took a while to get the collar on Byron. But then he got really really mad and sulked under the bed 'til I took it off him. Hence, there are no pix of him.

I was barely older than Nemat at that time. And, to be honest, I didn't pay all that much that much attention to the war. So it was interesting for me to read this memoir, especially since it's told by someone who experienced the horrors of such a war.
I'd found KC's sweater a couple days ago when I cleaned out my closet. Good thing because it's minus 7C! Brrrr!
We have a maple tree in front of our terrace. Nice tree ... until the leaves fall ... right onto our terrace! And then we track them into our place.
I swept the terrace last week and filled a big garbage bag full of leaves. And it was the same today.
Here is KC supervising (I was almost finished).

Two more just came out ... turquoise and coral ... and I picked 'em up today.
I have 18 now ... all still sealed. As far as I know, I'm just missing two ... a clear turquoise one and a clear pink one issued about five years ago.

Gord didn't go because he was tired and sore from fencing yesterday.
The bus dropped us off at the Fallview Casino and we had five hours to spend in Niagara Falls.
I started off by playing roulette. I lost $150 ... which I was prepared to lose. It was fun talking with the people at my table. It's amazing the amounts of money people gamble with.
The Horseshoe Falls from the casino:
I had an early supper with Dorothy at Shoeless Joe's (we went there because the lineup for the buffet was HUGE). Then a bunch of us went for a walk to the Falls.
There is a fabulous Winter Festival of Lights across the street from the Falls.
We walked up Clifton Street, which was as tacky (but in a good way) as ever!
A bunch of us met for a drink at the Falls Firkin (in the casino complex):
Then our driver, Frank, took us for a tour of the Christmas lights displays in Niagara Falls and Dufferin Islands before we headed for home.

I like chocolate ... I like mint. But in a gum?
I'd seen it advertised and finally came across it today ... so I had to try it!
It's kinda wacky! Mint gum on the outside and liquidy chocolate on the inside. It got slimy as I chewed it and the flavor didn't last long. I wasn't digging it.
On the way, I passed this house on Brock Street (just south of Dundas W).
They always get right into decorating for the holidays! And it's still November! They have angels mixin' it up with reindeer, Santa and Jesus.
Here's what it looked like at night last year.

Alas, it's true! Not much but enough.
There was freezing rain first so it took a while to scrape the windows clear. Of course, my mitts are still packed away somewhere.
The roads are slippery so be careful!
