Out of the Blue

Thanks for all the kind wishes for Hudson the wonder dog. She continues to seem better on her new medication, and has been eating voluntarily these past two days, which is great. Now I need to get her appetite back to the point where she can actually put some weight back on, as she's pretty emaciated. She's definitely gained back a lot of her fight though, so things are definitely trending in the right direction at the moment.

R.I.P.: Bum Phillips, former coach of Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints, dies at age 90.

Canadian customs was fun too. I went to Ottawa about 10 years ago to see one of my favorite bands play. (Sonata Arctica) My girlfriend at the time planned the whole trip, packed the bags, and had our entire itinerary. I was basically along for the ride.

The customs agents insisted we be in two separate lines. I tried to explain to them that it would work better at the booths if we were together, but they were having none of it because we were not married.

I got to my agent about the same time as she got to hers.
"How long are you staying in Canada for?"
"Uh, maybe like a week? I'm not sure." I turn and ask my girlfriend in a loud voice, since she is two lines over. "Hey, how long are we staying?"
"Two weeks," she replies.
"Two weeks," I tell the customs agent.
He gives me a look, shakes his head and asks the next question. "Where are you staying?"
"Uh..."I turn and ask my girlfriend in a loud voice, since she is two lines over. "Hey, where are we staying?"
She shouts back a French phrase, because we were staying just over the border in Quebec.
I turn and look at the guy, shrugging my shoulders. "Some French hotel."
He frowns and types in whatever my girlfriend said.
"And what are you doing in Canada?"
"Well, we're here for a concert, and then some tourism."
"Oh, where is the concert?"
I shrug and turn and ask my girlfriend in a loud voice, since she is two lines over."Hey honey!"
"Do you know what?" He interrupts, huffing. "Go stand with your girlfriend, tell them I said it was OK. NEXT!"
