Hubby decided to join me for a walk this morning and although it was only 8-9 degrees celsius, the sun was out so he decided a short sleeved t-shirt would be good enough.
I was happy to be walking but I forgot hubby likes to make stops along the way so as soon as he saw those golden arches, we stopped.
We came across a “stobie” pole on steriods. Actually, there were quite a few of these.
They’re called hydro poles here.
I got hubby to stand at the base so you can get an idea of how gigantic it is.
Today we had to do a bit of personal business/banking so we went downtown.
Hubby has been loving driving this Cadillac. It does seem like we’re driving around in luxury!
Passed some Cannabis store signs along the way. Took a few pics of the downtown area which looked quite nice.
It’s funny for me to see signs in two languages wherever we go.
This pic upper right was a very funny situation. Hubby had to get a copy of his birth certificate so we went to Vital Statistics and had to get a number and wait to be called. Hubby went to get a number and violently pulled the number tab. All of a sudden, the entire roll came undone without any tabs separating. It rolled across the floor and hubby, full of embarrassment, started rolling it back up as quick as he could.
What made it even more funny was that there was a customer immediately to his right who saw it and started laughing uncontrollably. It was such a funny giggle because he was trying to stifle it but just couldn’t.
We walked around Portage Place looking for some other department. Lot of interesting things and people around there.
We drove out to the country again late afternoon and stopped in at Tim Horton’s on the way and this time, we got some sweets as well!! We got a Maple Pecan Danish and a Cinnamon Scroll.
I love how here, and in the U.S too, they offer you coffee with milk or cream. I could get used to the lovely taste of cream in my coffee!!
Still not used to the fact that they display prices before the tax is applied. You never really know how much you will be charged. The first few times I couldn’t work out why I had paid more than the ticketed price and then I was told. Why don’t you people rebel!! This is a horrible system! The ticket price should include everything you need to pay. Price and tax! None of this add on at the end. And if you’re having a meal, you have to add on tip after that as well so you may think something is fairly cheap until all the extras are added on to it.
I had doggy cuddles this afternoon again. I could have sat here all afternoon with that little cutie.
We went with family to Portage la Prairie. It seemed like a nice place but it was so close we moved from the park to the indoor recreation centre.
Because it was easy, we went to Boston Pizza for dinner again tonight.
We started off sharing a big plate of nachos. These were great.
In our party of five, four of us had the New York Steak Sandwich. It was so delicious!
And we also ordered a plate of chicken tacos.
We said the first lot of goodbyes to family tonight and that’s the worst part. Always wonderful to see family and it’s never easy to say goodbye.
For now, goodnight and bonne nuit.
