You people!

❤ Lest We Forget ❤

The long weekend was a mellow one, with the bulk of the excitement being generated by the Sportsnet people when they canned Don Cherry from Coach's Corner.... Did you hear about that? On REMEMBRANCE DAY of all days.... Jeeezuz.... Oh dear, I hope I don't end up chastised for calling those network clowns 'people'?! LOL! This place is getting more out of control by the week. When a born-and-raised Canadian citizen loses his job, as a result of expressing disappointment in the lack of visible (donning a poppy) support and respect for both those who have served for our freedom and those who continue to serve, there is a problem. Just sayin'.

Anyhow, end of rant..... and on to some fun stuff!

The mountain weather in general was meh, with wind warnings and snowfall warnings galore. We spent a blustery Saturday wandering around Banff, where we ultimately ended up at the Waldhaus. This cool little pub is a tucked-away gem, and the drinks are cold and snooker is free. I recommend trying the pubchos if you are up for a unique tasty snack!

The next day was cold but cleared off nicely after lunch, just in time for a quick stroll up to the always lovely Grassi Lakes.

The anomaly of the afternoon was a small herd of elk, who hung out in the river for almost an hour. My own feet were going numb just watching them! That had to have been chilly! Brrrrr!

It is definitely looking and feeling more and more like winter in the Rockies, which I am thrilled about, especially since I purchased a Mountain Collective pass! Can't wait to hit the slopes.

Blah, blah, blah....

What an uneventful month! 'Blah' really sums it up. The weather has been mediocre, and work has been mediocre. Halloween was even boring this year.... I handed out treats to less than fifty little creatures.

I did however finish another small stained glass project, and I was allowed to run a chainsaw one afternoon - so those were a few highlights!

I also did something that I never ever tried as a kid.... cost me a buck five but was worth every cent! LOL!

I hate to wish my life away, but I am really looking forward to the shoulder season being over, so that the focus can switch to full-on winter fun! And by the looks of the forecast this week, it might be happening sooner rather than later! Woot!

Stay warm everyone!
