READ ALL ABOUT IT
A husband and wife who work for the circus go to an adoption agency. Social workers there raise doubts about their suitability. The couple produces photos of their 50-foot motor home, which is clean and well maintained and equipped with a beautiful nursery.
The social workers raise concerns about the education a child would receive while in the couple's care.
"We've arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin, and computer skills."
Then the social workers express concern about a child being raised in a circus environment.
"Our nanny is a certified expert in pediatric care, welfare, and diet," the circus couple explained.
The social workers are finally satisfied. They ask, "What age child are you hoping to adopt?"
"It doesn't really matter, as long the kid fits in the cannon."
Enjoy the latest Volkswagen tv commercial featuring the great Willie Nelson, and his trademark song, "On the Road Again", with Nelson driving a vintage VW Beetle. Willie is an ageless performer.
We met Erna Parrotto at Continuing Care the other day, and she said she was about to turn 95, but doesn't look a day over 65. We first met her when she would cook spaghetti sauce for husband Dom in the old days. Happy Birthday Erna!
Coming across the bridge on Sunday morning about 9:30, and was headed south towards Mac's. We were met by two half-tons, one Ford and one GM/Chev, coming towards us in the two northbound lanes, racing at probably 90 to 110 kms/hour. In the seconds it took to realize what they were doing, we watched in the rear view mirror as one went across the bridge, and the other one braked and turned right towards the dinosaur. Can't imagine the carnage, if this had turned out differently.
Watching some great football of late, especially by the Calgary Stampeders, who top the CFL, makes us think that maybe it is time to add more teams to the League. Years ago, there was a bid from a group in Halifax, Nova Scotia to build a team in Atlantic Canada, and maybe there might also be some interest to start a team in Saskatchewan.
