Okay. By the way, here's an interesting fact that came up in conversation a couple of days ago.

Do you know that you were conceived in Toronto? Yeah, July long, 1984. Just thought it interesting that here you are, back where you began.

Love Mom.

Chris and Ailsa came over for tea last night and that was very pleasant. We had a lamb curry pie and a chicken and leek pie, both from the butchers. We had to have them because Dad and I had a chicken and leek pie during the week which unfortunately I dropped as I was taking it out of the oven. It splattered everywhere. it was just like someone had vomited a whole pie. I was on my hands and knees scraping it back together with both hands when Dad appeared, uttered a heart-rending cry of "nooooooo" and then said we'd have egg with our chips instead. He was so mad and I thought it was so funny but I daren't laugh - it would not have been appropriate, but it was really funny. It was like I was trying to juggle with this damn thing but it got out of control. So we had one last night instead and I wasn't allowed anywhere near it.

PS. I think your area will be part of this next storm? I guess you'll get a snow day tomorrow; good time to curl up with the furry girls.
