TODAY OF COURSE, IS BOXING DAY…… THE DAY THAT ALMOST EVERY CANADIAN HEADS TO THE STORES TO SPEND THEIR CHRISTMAS MONEY…..

THERE ARE EVEN A FEW HEARTY SOULS WHO MAKE THIS A DAY TO DO ALL THEIR NEXT YEARS CHRISTMAS SHOPPING…..

 DENISA HAVE DONE THE SAME FOR MANY YEARS…… THIS YEAR …… IT JUST MIGHT BE DIFFERENT……

WE ARE STILL IN A QUANDARY AS TO WHAT TO DO TODAY…… DO WE STAY IN CALGARY AND JOIN THE MASSES OF PEOPLE IN LONG CASH REGISTER LINE-UPS. OR SHOULD WE PACK UP AND HEAD BACK HOME……  

MAYBE TAKE THE LONG WAY TO EDMONTON AND FIND A NO-TELL MOTEL ALONG THE WAY…….  WE DO HAVE OUR PET YORKIE WITH US SO FINDING A MOTEL MIGHT BE A CHALLENGE…… 

I HAVE INCLUDED A PICTURE OF A POWERFUL SNOW BLOWER THAT WE PASSED ON OUR WAY HOME FROM  NELSON……. WE STOPPED AND WATCHED IT SLOWLY PASS…..

IT WAS ACTUALLY MOVING ABOUT WALKING SPEED…… THE SNOW IT WAS BLOWING WAS ALMOST AS HARD AS ICE……. IT WAS ONE POWERFUL MACHINE…..

IT’S -7C AND CLEAR….. YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE……..
