A Canadian forum conversation with nostalgia, memories, mentions! I didn't have the pleasure of meeting the missing. I don't golf, or sow a garden. I love rock'n roll, but don't remember names of songs and bands.

Je suis Canadien!

Aw, you're fine. Just remember the Stampeders, Michel Pagliaro, BTO, Burton Cummings, and listen to me gripe about my golf game. Hey, I'll be putting in tomatoes and peppers in about two weeks.

Welcome!

Ooo, I like it.

I've kind of been going with Crone. It has a Paganish connotation, and there's a Facebook group called Crones of Anarchy that I like.

I let my hair go gray since COVID, and I am loving it. When I last Facetimed with my daughter, she said she loved it, too. I said "It's always been my goal to be the old weird hippie woman who wears long dresses and is a little bit feared by the neighborhood children. In fact, I bought some long dresses recently for the summer to help me achieve that goal."

She laughed and said, "Mom, you're THERE. You've been there for a long, long time."

If you ever watch any news on CTV you might be familiar with Lisa LaFlamme, she is the chief anchor and senior editor of CTV National News. She has always been an attractive woman with brunette hair but when the covid pandemic started she let her hair go gray. Now she is not only merely attractive, she looks absolutely stunning with her silvery gray hair. Gray hair rocks.

Crone, shrew and termagant. So we have three for woman and only one so far for men.

Cantankerous, might work, although the definition doesn't seem to specify a sex.

Anyone?

I have a friend about your age who let her hair go grey and long. She is certainly a free spirit!

Glad your curmudgeonly ways are confirmed! Best to embrace it. I'm still working on mine. I tried the other day, but I think I scared a child. Not good. I'll have to work on a more loveable curmudgeonly nature.
Oh boy did it ever go well! A woman in NY saw it on line and made a cash offer. The deal was firmed up with closing in just four days from listing. I've gone through more aggro selling a used car.

Back home now and just spent the afternoon helping a young neighbour install one of those round trampoline-like swings from a low tree branch and then we quaffed a lager while the kids were screaming their delight on the thing. Imagine an afternoon spent with NO political partisan discussion! It got so we couldn't even enjoy happy hours down there without listening to the petty bickering over Biden this or Trump that.

If it gets that bad in Canada, I'm moving to Pitcairn Is.

That is fast!

When I visit the US, well anywhere actually, I try not to discuss religion, or politics. I succeed most times.
Unless there is a legitimate question about Canada and " our ways ", then I might get drawn in.

Along that note, I had my first face-to-face appointment in 2 years with my doctor (I've been experiencing chest pains and dizziness). My doctor and I are friendish - not quite friends but more than patient-doctor relationships usually are. So he always asks about my parents and my husband (we have different doctors).

I'd like to backtrack a moment to say my doctor is French, very sophisticated and good looking, almost the stereotypical idea of a Frenchman. He reminds me of my idea of Acajack actually!

So in telling him how my husband is doing (not great, end-of-life, at home with Home Care), he blew me away by asking me something Canadians never ask each other, least of all from a Catholic (this may make Suesbal very happy!). He asked if I believed in Jesus. I said, "I believe in God," very cautiously while giving him a funny look, and he said. "But do you believe in Jesus?"

Turns out, he's a very pious man. After which we talked religion for at least 10 minutes. I never would have thought!

(No, I wasn't offended. We are friendish.)

Ooh, the pressure. I fear you might be disappointed!

(Out of curiosity, is he French Canadian or French from France?)

French-Canadian!

I have never heard a French-Canadian Catholic talk about religion. I've only heard Catholics of other nationalities speak a few times about religion. Not that I'm an expert in how Catholics do or don't talk about religion.
