Beagle thought it looked like a nice snack, but we dragged her away. This one was brown, I usually see green ones.
My ex told a story about a beagle vs a praying mantis. The mantis flew in through the window. That beagle was very interested. It ended up with two rows of tiny puncture marks with tiny blood drops on its nose. The mantis had whacked doggy with its forearms on the nose. Mantis 1, beagle 0.

Well, with a name like Trudeau, it has to be in his blood.

Just read that he and his wife have three children age 8 and under. Running a nation will be a piece of cake.

He'll be going home. He pretty much lived at 24 Sussex Drive, the Prime Minister's residence, from the time he was born until he was 14.

They have started talking about Trudeau-mania.

Taxy, I was thinking the same thing last night when he was making his speech. His kids will be growing up there just like he did.

I am smiling because I like to think that our country has a new chance with an old name. It is now up to him to keep his promises and up to us to remind him when he doesn't!

George W Bush was an adult when his father was president so Justin Trudeau is the only North American leader to have grown up in the house of office!

Well, no. Amy Carter and Chelsea Clinton did as well. Malia Obama is living her teen years in the White House.

GG, it won't be the same analogy unless Amy or Chelsea or Malia or Shasha become elected president of the U.S. Justin Trudeau lived in the Prime Minister's house from birth to age 14. GWB was already an adult when GHWB was in the White House.

That's what I get for paying attention

Last thing that made you smile?

We half Canadians loved Pierre Elliot Trudeau. I well remember him letting fly with an expletive, and then declaring all he said was " fuddle duddle." There were many tee shirts printed with that. My dad actually met him when he was swimming on Lake of the Woods while Dad was fishing.

Hope his son can do good things for Canada.

We found the same praying mantis on our noon walk. Apparently it has a death wish. It was heading on to the highway. I turned it back toward the ditch, in the grass, but it was on a mission.
