London, ON, January 2009
I tend to wear my Canadian citizenship on my sleeve. As much as we like to whine about our long, cold winters, I suspect deep down most of us truly love living in this part of the world. Our unique meteorology has helped us build a national persona that just wouldn't be the same if we had it a little easier from Mother Nature. We hunker down, help each other, and use our strange Canadian sense of humour to make it through till spring.
And we skate. A lot. So when my wife and I took the munchkins for skates a few weeks back (their feet keep growing...imagine that!) I couldn't resist this shot just before we headed home.
Your turn: Please suggest a witty caption (or two, or three, or...) for this photo. I'll post the winner next Sunday, along with a new Caption This photo. For more background on the CT thing, click here. This photo supports this week's Thematic Photographic theme, winter. For more on that - come on, you're curious, right? - head over here. And have fun with both of them, as that's why we do what we do!
About last week's photo os a dilapidated old house: I often wonder if it'll still be there the next time we pass through town. I'll watch for it when we do. In the meantime, I was quite jazzed that so many of you shared your thoughts on this forlorn, forgotten home. Honorable menschens go to:
- Tabitha In Bliss: "Is anybody home?"
- Terri: "Cletus and Lurleen's house may not have been much, but when the tornado headed for the trailer park, at least they were safe."
- Gary Rith: "May 15, 2012, a new B and B and antiques shop was opened this week by George and Jeffrey, who have just moved out from the city."
- Tanya: "This just in: Ancient brothel slated for demolition."
- Dana: "Sign of the times."
- Jean: "Brilliance, before the crumble."
- Robin: "Nightmare on Elm Street." and "Roof or consequences."
- Vodka Mom: "Um, honey? You CANNOT be serious."
- Stephen: "Cracked house" and "Reverse mortgage."
