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!
