WINTER poem

No, I didn't compose this, but it does pretty well sum up my life this week. 
WINTER Poem

It's winter time in Canada
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At thirty-five below.
Oh, how I love Canada
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave Canada
Cuz I'm frozen to the ground!
Have a great day...


98% OF CANADIANS SAY "OH SHIT" BEFORE GOING IN THE DITCH ON A SLIPPERY ROAD.
THE OTHER 2% ARE FROM NEWFOUNDLAND AND THEY SAY, "HOLD MY BEER AND WATCH THIS."

ps. I'm still putting my computer back together, but will probably post about my experience another day. What a nightmare. So glad to be back among you all. Merry Christmas!


In my kafuffle, I neglected to mention that I was a weeklong guest on Killarney Sheffield's blog. Thank you so much, Killarney for this wonderful opportunity. I lost my calendar, links, or I would have been there earlier. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and thanks again for stalking me.

  5. Oh shit...eh! Exclaim 98% of Canadians :)
    Delighted you are putting your computer back together. I can imagine what a nightmare it has been. However, as you continue to put it togeher, this has meant that not only do you have the incredible thrill of reading my comment, I got to read your comment on my shy and humble blog.
    I checked out that guest article on Killarney Sheffield's blog. It might be me, but I could not read it because the text colour clashes with the background.
    Have a good one, eh.
    Your adoring, starstruck fan, Gary......

  6. Dear humble, adoring fan... (love the sounds of that) I'm thrilled to hear from you from way across the waters. Don't worry about the interview. I doubt it's anything you haven't read before. And yes, I had problems too. I think it has something to do with our eyes being older than most. Darn, eh!

    Bigs hugs to you and yours.

  9. LOL Oh dear! Your winter sounds absolutely frightening to me! The weather here has not gotten below 65 today. And I do mean 65 ABOVE 0! :o)

    Hope your computer behaves!! Can't wait to hear more about it.

  10. And Merry Christmas to you, Joylene. You are such an amazing talent and a beautiful person, you brighten our lives. I've been to Newfound and love their sense of humor. PE Island remains a dream. Here's hoping 2012 brings a sequel to "Dead Witness" BTW, love the way you go between countries and keep the cultures distance, especially how we're 'the States' - most miss that.

    Pop the bubbly and celebrate!

  12. @Adriana, it takes a special kind of crazy person to live in the north. LOL. Brrr hum bug, I'm cold! Merry Christmas.

    @Kittie, thank you so much for your kind words. I am humbled. I also took the liberty of telling some friends about your post today. It was quite wonderful. Merry Christmas.

    @Anthony, hi! Yes, big big gentle breezes. LOL. Merry Christmas!
