We did one of my favourite things yesterday.
Took a drive to the mountains...
Got up close and personal with the wildlife...
And saw the sites. Yes, Banff.
In truth, we went because my friend Kerry, someone I've known since my high school days, is visiting and had never been to Banff before.
But seven years ago we were also out in Banff. Doing that tedious 'wedding' thing. It's our anniversary today.
And it's started to snow.
Anyway, if you're wondering why I still seem to be a bit quiet, that's why. Company from out of town visiting until Wednesday, and actually spending some time with hubs. I'm still working on getting stuff done, and am working on a special post for later this week...
And no, it doesn't involve MacBride or his kilt shaking antics.
Julia Buckley took this photo of me at B'con, when we went for dinner with Bill Cameron and David Skibbins. It was a lot of fun. The dinner, not the photo-taking. I hate having my photo taken.
I'm sure the guys will love this joke.
After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came to visit Eve.
"So, how is everything going?" inquired God.
"It's all so beautiful" she replied. "Everything is wonderful, but I have just one problem. It's these three breasts you've given me. The middle one pushes the other two out and I'm constantly knocking them with my arms. "
She went on to tell Him that since many other parts of her body came in pairs, such as her limbs, eyes, ears, etc.......she felt that having only two breasts might leave her body more "symmetrically balanced," as she put it.
"That is a fair point, but it was my first shot at this, you know. I gave the animals six breasts, so I figured that you needed only half of those, but I see that you are right. I will fix it up right away."
And He reached down, removed the middle breast and tossed it into the bushes.
Three weeks passed and God once again visited Eve in the Garden of Eden.
"Well, Eve, how is my favourite creation?"
"Just fantastic," she replied, "But for one oversight on your part. You see, all the animals are paired off. The ewe has a ram and the cow has her bull. All the animals have a mate except me. I feel so alone."
God thought for a moment and said, "You know, Eve, you are right. How could I have overlooked this? You do need a mate and I will immediately create a man from a part of you. Now let's see............Where did I put that useless tit??"
Now doesn't THAT make more sense than that stuff about the rib?
