Mimzy and me and Amy
Posted: May 26th, 2008 - 8:03pm by Doug PowellLast year it was five weeks touring France; this year, Amy's studying business French in Quebec and Ontario (Canada) and I'm tagging along.
We left Manhattan and our dogs on May 21, but picked up another for the 18 hour drive: a borzoi, or Russian wolf hound, named Mimzy who a friend in Guelph, Ontario, had purchased from its current owner in Manhattan (Kansas).
That's Mimzy and me (right). She made the trip, uh, interesting (and should come standard-issue with a drool bucket).
After games of golf, hockey, a committee meeting with Chapman and meals with kids, friends and parents, it was off to Montreal. We're staying in the Latin Quarter, and today wondered through the Notre-Dame Basilica.
This is the bathroom (right) in the Basilica, and like every other public washroom I've visited in Quebec, there was no paper towel. Proper handwashing requires the proper tools, and that includes paper towels.
And because this song was played during the beginning of tonight's game 2 of the Detroit-Pittsburgh Stanley Cup finals, here is Stompin' Tom Connors with, The Hockey Song.
