Alberta Bound

My twin brother, C, and I have just completed the long haul down the Trans-Canada from Toronto to Calgary. We did it in a lime green '68 Chevy Truck--very hot! The new news is that I've been made Regional Manager of Alberta for The Good Beer Folks and am moving here. . .Parkdale, I hardly knew ye!

The move will be for a year or so.
I hope Cowtown is as full of crazies as Hogtown is; I suspect, however, that no place on earth could possibly have as many nuts as Toronto. I will do my best to find them.

Wawa has not one, not two, but no less than THREE large geese. What town needs that many oversized geese? What town council, buoyed by the success of one large goose, decides that a flock is needed?
And why build them all the same? Why not make an Elvis Wawa Goose, or a Pete Rose Wawa goose?


I hope St. Thomas' mayor doesn't visit and get it in his head that more Jumbos are needed to stimulate tourism.

How much excitement can one town contain?

OMG, I can't believe you're moving away like that. Without any warning. It's like you dumping me after a one night stand because you want to date my hotter best friend instead. *sniff*

Good luck with the move and job, B.!

I barely had time to change my underwear after getting offered the job--and it was necessary to change the drawers just in case we hit a moose and mortified my mother during the coroners identification process.
I hope that I'm making the right move; I just started to LOVE Parkdale like a brother. . .a brother that stays up late, huffs corrective fluid, and swears at family gatherings before passing out in the corner.
A love that is nearly indistinguishable from the love I have for Steve Guttenburg.
