That was a whirlwind trip, Monday!
He needed something to hold his stuff whilst doing Meals on Wheels: his phone, keys, wallet, and his new camera will all fit in. It is mesh, and will be cool in summer.
We finally found one online at Cabela's new Ottawa store. What a store! It is enormous. Lots of stuffed animals, including a moose, caribou, coyotes, deer, bear. It gave me a bit of the heebee-jeebies, although it was interesting to see what they look like close up. The coyotes are small. Ours seem much bigger!
Little bear (above), roasting marshmellows, needed a home. He was broken, probably dropped, and only the one light under his fire works. It lights, partially, but I found him in the sales department. What the heck! The solar powered sensor was reglued on it. It was 50% off the full price of $70, then 25% off of that. I gave it a home.
After that, we went to lunch at a newish find: Fratelli. Lovely Italian place with actually great pasta. Too much pasta is over cooked. We've been before. It's tough to find really good pasta places. These are from both our visits. Excellent service, and lovely decor.
Next stop: Big Al's. That was amazing! I can't remember what these worms are, but they are rather creepy.
Then, hubby noticed these iguanas were having a moment! I'd neglected to bring in my camera, so I borrowed his.
Finally, we bought three more comet goldfish for the goldfish pond. We've lost a few over the winter. Home again, jiggedy jig, to pop them in the aquarium. One big, new happy family.
