I am always left with mixed feelings whenever I hear about
another Canuck escaping the ravages of another Canadian
winter.However,in this case, I am clearly happy to hear that Le
Mouton Noir has managed to slip by the border patrols:-).Hopefully,he
will not cause too much of an upheavel in the social order of things.
There are a few things you should protect yourself against though
John.Firstly, don't let Le Baron de Kingston see any sort of wood
structures appearing to be useful in anyway,like a
garage,shed,carport or even a sandbox.Unlike the rest of us, he'll
probably see an up-turned boat just waiting to be
rescued/completed/launched and will instantly begin schemming on ways
to remove said"boat".
Next,keep him away from the American beers.No offense intended
here John,it is just to be safe, since his system has been
adjusted,since birth, to deal with slightly higher octane brews and
can be tricked into thinking it is drinking water if one is not
careful.I know that all the health experts agree that good hydration
is essential to good health and regularity but we also know that
alcohol has been proven to reduce heart problems(just look at those
blasted Frenchies and Italiens with their fat rich diets and long
lives....geeese....!) and Le Mouton Noir must keep the old ticker in
shape!Give him real booze:-)
And finally, do say "Salut mon amie!" to Le Baron when he finally
does grace your abode with his presence and wish him a safe trip with
his "roof luggage" on my behalf.
Peter Lenihan,safely tucked away north of the border with some real
beers and a strong heart.....:-)
