Very first visit from Chile!

My first visit from Chile today! I am getting more people from South America, every day now! Thanks for dropping by, Chile! Also Indonesia, and of course Russia was in for a visit today.

It was mild, today. I was walking out at a nature preserve here in the area, and they set up these nice little bird feeders from a gazebo of sorts. My dog ran out the length of her 20 foot wind up leash. She paused, as she was looking for squirrels in the Boreal forest. Then, a chickadee jumped on the dogs rope, nearly a foot from my hand. It stayed there for a few seconds. I think it was looking for some food, in which I did not have, so it fluttered away in disgust. People feed the birds there, and as mentioned previously, they do eat right out of your hand.  The dog did nothing, as he did not realize what was going on, still looking for that elusive squirrel that must have ran under a fir trees bow branch.

I imagine the maple syrup season is now on the run. Trees tapped, with their lines running to evaporators, taking the sweet liquid into the heated cauldrons. Many cords of wood burnt to thicken the syrup. Tested to perfection. Spread it out on snow, and it makes like a taffy. They have breakfasts at these camps, and for 12 dollars you can have an all you can eat maple syrup breakfast. Pancakes, eggs (scrambled or boiled), toast, ham, bacon, beans, coffee or juice. It keeps them busy, and the halls are full, from the morning till closing time. Sometimes the line up is as far as several 10s of feet outside of the main building. Well, I can't wait to find out if they are, indeed open. Have a great night,  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…
