Good morning everyone!

Another chilly morning in Ottawa. There has been no sight of snow but it does appear that there could be some on Friday and Saturday. At least that is what the forecast says! I am OK with whatever the weather brings as I am pretty sure that it will disappear only the re-appear around the beginning of December.

I'd be lying if I didn't say I am a little sleepy this morning. I had hockey at 10 pm and could not quite fall asleep until midnight. It was a fun game. Somehow, the game ended in a tie. Oh well! As I have said before, I like to win, but I am just out there to play hard and have fun.

On to today... another 'Pines Day! Seems like these days are coming a lot faster. Carl has been kidding me about a time machine. Perhaps he is the one speeding up the days as we move closer and closer to the Christmas Season... That crazy camel. Despite it being a non-holiday week, the place looks great. I'm excited for next week's Halloween theme as well as the beginning of November. After all, there is only one 'Pines Day prior to the beginning of the Season!

OK. I should get back to work. I am getting a little to excited. Have a great Wednesday, everyone!

That's a beautiful story!

Good morning all. It's been a long, busy, and stressful week so I hope Carl has something good planned tonight. I need a good ol' barn burner of a shindig to help me kick back.

Hope you all have a great Wednesday!

I'll relieved once the fair is over.
Good Morning, Cetacea!!

Good luck at the trade fair tomorrow, hope all goes smoothly
