Trip to town!

Somebody in my house needed to pick up some immunity boosters, and calcium supplements. "How about a trip to Carleton Place, lunch included?"
As we were about to leave, I noticed 4 red squirrels under the feeder. All were getting along, which might be a miracle of the cold temperatures!


First step, grab the mail. JB's worn his hat for all of December. Remember this hat.


Remember the hat? JB was wearing it in the car. As we sat at the red light, people waved as they turned the corner! You might not be able to see it. You can hear our laughter, as people laughed and waved.


This looks like an interesting infill, there must be four apartments, and it's coming along. We need housing like this in town.


Lots of new housing, big homes!


What do you think of these tail lights?!


I wonder how she managed to get the dog to tolerate the boots?!


The senior's facility is coming along. It's been a bit chilly. Along the way, I noticed a lot of people atop cranes!


Another crane! They are building an extension to the health facility.


And, of course, Hydro lineworkers are always working!


Mission accomplished, we went to lunch. More compliments and smiles! The pub was packed.


Have you heard of manspreading? I had to ask the dude to move. There was a large Christmas party in the other side of the room. They had Christmas crackers, and presents for all. It was fun to listen to.


In the meantime, we'll see what today brings: rain, snow, sleet or hail?!

That's a fun hat!

There should be more red and other bright colors to oppose the gloomy sky and barren trees. Your hubby's hat and the red car are a good example.

I like the hat. Since I don't know what else to post these days, I should post Sue's bell.

Love J.B.'s hat!
We were planning to head to Pembroke for the Festive Meal at Swiss Chalet, but it is snowing to beat the band. It is supposed to turn to freezing rain, then just rain. Yep, plans postponed.

Keep the hat, it looks great, and a lot of red in the map, cold for sure. XXX

Only a good old extrovert can wear a hat like that and get a kick out of it.

Some dogs tolerate those boots. And they are for their own good, really.

ha ha, that's certainly a hat!! You two set out to have a lot of fun and you did.
Always nice to have a little look around as you head into town. All that snow, it amazes me.
