the children's storefront, heavy lifting

When the storefront burned down, we lost everything--treasured books, toys, all of it. While it was being rebuilt, we worked hard to find replacements, and once we could move in, we had to go get things stored all over Toronto.

building the new children's storefront has taken 15 months

and we now know all about regulations, city inspections, licenses, bureaucracy, and COLOUR. Old people think the phone calls Moscow.

This is a kickass butterfly. The Monarch. All of them east of the Rockies go to Michoacan in Mexico, for the winter. That's a long way from here. They stay until early March when they come home. The Monarch who comes back to my yard is not the one that left. It is the third generation of Monarch and just how did that little Monarch brain figure that one out? Not only do they go to Mexico, they hang out in the heart of drug cartel country, but they are just fine. Mostly they hang comatose on the pine trees until it's time to come home.

no frost can touch them.

last summer keeps me and my hard drive warm.

I had Frizzle and her colleague, Grover, for the holidays. They are both supposed to graduate as vision dogs in February. Grover is the size of a small horse and likes to eat one glove out of every pair. Four pairs so far.
