so, next week I gotta go down to Hamilton to pick up the daughter and the dog. Don't wanna drive at night, so I'm going down during the daylight hours and want to spend some time shopping at Jackson Square.
Is there actually parking available at the mall? I (thank you mapquest) know how to get there from here, but it doesn't really say whether or not there's parking there.
and what's with all the friggin' one way streets there. Jeezuz. >:(

:-( I'm working during Game 3. I also hate all these late starts. :-(
and sorry, but it's after 4 pm and the game is in a couple hours and there was no GDT up, so I just had to.
Frattin is out, surgery on the knee today :( , Reimer out with the knee too.
Attn All TMLfans posters: Yours truly is a moron and put this up yesterday erroneously (got my calendar dates mixed up). Took it down then, and I've put it back up now so we actually have a GDT, but I think I'll disallow myself to ever do one again. Anyone out there want custody of the GameDayBears pictures?
Left to Right: Friend (a Shepherd/Lab cross rescue Feb 1983-May 1993); Rafiki (a Shepherd/Lab cross rescue-- the Swahili word for Friend, Apr 1993-May 2007) and Miko (Shepherd/Rottweiler cross rescue Feb 2007 to present, Miko is short for Amico, the Italian word for Friend)
This photo is of a wood carving my father did, working from photographs of the dogs. It's the lid of a hopechest; one of four in my house all of which represent something special to the owner. This particular chest belongs to my husband.
Story about Friend: He was a huge hockey fan. He was the only child spoiled dog of newlyweds. Saturday night was Cookie Night in Canada in our house. Friend got a Milkbone treat every time the Leafs scored a goal. Wendel Clark and Steve Thomas made Friend fat.
He was an exceptionally perceptive dog. We both worked full time when we got him, and I unwound at night by watching MASH reruns. Friend knew that MASH was quality Mom-hugs-me-because-the-tv-makes-her-cry time. It got to the point where when he heard the theme music for MASH, he'd park at the foot of the couch he knew I'd be sitting on. After a year or so of this (I always attributed it to the music) I realised something else. I was doing laundry one day, and there's Friend, having assumed the MASH position at the couch. I'm thinking WTF for the longest time and happened to look up at the TV. Phil Donahue was on....and guest starring on the show that day was Alan Alda. Hmmmm. I say. A month or so later, he's there at the couch again and I wonder why. Days of our Lives is on tv. Hmmm. And I pay half attention and realise 'holy cow, this actor looks and sounds like Alan Alda, only way younger.' So I sit down (hug the dog) and wait for credits to come on. And damn if it isn't *Antony* Alda on the show. Yep, Alan's sound alike, look alike younger half brother.
I'm sure we had a thread about this, it may have been Before The Crash, but CP24's George Lagogaines (spelling!) just did a story about how there's an offer in for the Leafs from the same American company that owns the NY Yankees. Yikes! eeek!
not liking that idea
not just the Leafs, apparently they wanna buy MLSE
So, here I am watching the OHL season opener for my Barrie Colts.....and they're playing the Kingston Frontenacs. And they (the Fronts) are managed by my second favourite all time player, Doug Gilmour and coached by my third favourite, Todd Gill. Wow, if Darryl Sittler was involved with the Frontenacs, I would have no alternative but to move to Kingston.........
