Went at the October fest in Bertrand, N.B.

Bertrand,  N.B. had a terrific beer festival this past weekend.  You could sample beers from all around the globe.  All day today was a sample festival,  and there was little place to park to sample the suds.  Beautiful weather,  and warm welcomes from everyone there.

Later on,  we went for a walk through the Acadian Historical Village.  There,  was people from France,  United States,  from all over Canada.  They have one of the regions first banks there,  as well as a restored hotel there,  a turn of the century gas station,  and a old sawmill.  One of my relatives saw the huge chimney at the sawmill and thought it was a crematorium.  Oh well.  Certainly it is not that.

As far as my book is concerned,  I try not to think of it now.  I am quite satisfied that I tried to publish something,  and I knew the risk was there that I was only going to get some local sales,  which is what is happening now.  I have become a local star.  You know,  the guy down the road who plays a wicked piano.  Or,  the guy down the road who scores a goal every time he is on the ice.   Or,  like the guy who can sink 24 beer and still hold in his puke...   Till then...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
