On The Road Again...

In the midst of packing the most unattractive clothing on the planet for the trek to James Bay, I get a call. There will apparently be snowmobiles involved. There are apparently now snow pants involved. I already have in two pairs of these weird paddy pants and a bazillion underarmour thingees, and hats and gloves and mitts and boots and hotshots and things, and now I'm just debating bringing an electric blanket and a long, long extension cord.

I have practiced being cold by going down to the basement to fold laundry wearing only a t-shirt. I lasted two minutes, then pulled on one of the boys' hoodies. I think this does not bode well for me.

I will attempt to Twitter on the road; if you don't follow already, I don't blame you. Twitter is pretty stupid. But anyway. Go to @Tweeetlorraine and sign in. Yes, I'm aware that's spelled wrong.

The only ones visibly upset that I'm going are the cats, as usual. Maggie is wondering who she is going to sit on all day and sleep on all night. JoJo is wondering who will be up before noon to feed her. I am wondering how far north up highway 400 I'm gonna get before I remember what I've forgotten.

Anyhoo. I'm sure it will be interesting. Story set to run in next week's Star...I'll get lots of pics of caribou. Caribous? Whatever.

Stay well.

Oh, a pic from Detroit. Looks like I'm holding hands with the cop. I wasn't. He also wouldn't let me wear his hat. I asked. Nicely. Sigh.

I see you haven't loaded the next pic where he puts the cuffs on you and into the cruiser for wearing UGGS.

Funny. When I was looking at the pic, I thought: "Jeeze, but I'd love to jump behind the wheel of *that*." Didn't realise until I looked at the photo spread that it would be your choice to take home.

And WTH were the Staties doing there?

Good pick Lorraine. Flashing lights, monster bumpers for going to Wal Mart. That will get you home when the parade is on. You won't have to run.
Nice lookin' boots too. Should have asked for the baton instead of the hat. You really need to get back on the iron horse so you can use them properly.

Ozzie is right, the cop looks like a cardboard cut out. Was this taken with an Olympus?
