Canada Days 43-49

Canada Days 43-49

So this week, I had John in town. We ended up going out to dinner a lot more than I did with the previous person. This weekend, we went to the Toronto Zoo.

We also tried to go to a laser tag place, but we unable to get in. Guess they don’t want us decimating the children. We did end up playing in Cambridge, but I don’t think John really enjoyed himself. I didn’t exactly go easy on him.

 

Sunday, we went to a Casino as John hadn’t been in a while, much less while he was up here. I didn’t do well, but I never expect to. He actually made a little money, but nothing to quit your job over.

 

Only a few days left. For some reason, I thought that an 8am flight would be a good idea. That means I need to be at the airport 3 hours prior, which means 5am, plus one hour for the drive, so that means leaving at 4am. So get up at 3am, check out of the hotel and head to Toronto. Still it will be nice to be home.

 

When I get home there will be a new set of challenges, but I’ll deal with those when I get there. So to everyone that has missed me for these 50+ days, I’m coming back!

 

I understand that today (Wednesday) it snowed in Denver (though looking at the cameras it seems to have melted). Funny that there is no snow up here, but I suppose we are close to a body of water which might act like a thermal storage device.

Canada Day 11-27

It has been a long few days. I’ve gone and done a few things for fun. One thing we (my co-worker and I) have done is visit the Royal Ontario Museum. It was a little like a jack of all trade museum. They had various sections, from life to ancient Canada to geology. I found this million dollar loonie coin interesting:

One interesting thing I saw was that Subway up here actually has Cheddar. Needless to say, if you know me, you know that makes me very happy.

This Friday, I am taking my co-worker home, and I think I’ll go visit Niagara falls. The weekend before, we ran into an issue with Canadian Thanksgiving. I had to work on the day that I would normally venture out. But that shouldn’t be an issue from now on. Some of the other things I might do is an fighter jet simulator, Legoland, and a haunted house. I did visit a cheese store as well. It was the first time I found sharp cheddar up here. Admittedly, it’s 30 minutes away, but it is good. We also went to a casino, and I doubled my money. $200 CAD turned into $410 CAD. Whee!
