As my American neighbours to the south celebrated their Thanksgiving, I thought I would take a few moments to give thanks as well.
First, my birthday week. Oh, who am I kidding! I used to have a birthday week, but those days are long gone. Now, I just have a birthday. And a special birthday it was. Many thanks to my friend Sue who organized a beautiful lunch in my honour. Decorations, friends, presents and great food. A beautiful and oh, so delicious Salade Niçoise. And no canned tuna for me. Gorgeous, pan-seared tuna steaks for my special day. With wine. And a yummylicious chocolate-caramel cake. Thank you Sue! And thank you Beatrice, Karen, Esther and Carmie. It was a lovely afternoon!
Sue did have one more treat up her sleeve. And what a treat it was! She took me to a hockey game on the last day of November. A perfect ending to my birthday month! The Montreal Canadians against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Watching a hockey game with my girlfriend, 6 rows from the ice, having hot dogs and beer. Now what could be better than that? I’ll tell you what. Montreal beating Toronto 4-2, that’s what! Go Habs Go!
