In my early days at Chalk River, Roger was my inspiration and mentor, even though at a tender age of 20 he was some 10 years my junior. He was also indirectly responsible for my learning downhill skiing. This happened since he was considered an indispensable staff member, because he produced up to fifteen papers a year in a field where two papers was considered quite adequate. The hierarchy was so scared of losing him that he was granted the privilege of taking every Wednesday off in winter to go to a ski hill some 90 kilometres away. He also had the privilege of inviting staff to accompany him.
It was September when we were in Moscow. The weather was rather cool and it rained a lot. So we went to this restaurant that was close by our apartment. It was the Da Pino Restaurant. We had a lot of fun there. So I wrote this song about it, right there in Moscow.
Autumn is upon us and there is a definite change in the weather. The days are getting shorter and there is a chill in the air. So what better way to lift those autumn blues than a visit with one of your sons?
I did this sketch some years ago. It’s pen on paper. I thought it appropriate for after our election. We still have “Pretty Boy” for a Prime Minister but he only has a minority government and he didn’t win the popular vote. I like minority governments. It clips their wings and they have to try to work together. I guess that was a waste of some $600,000,000.00. He went into the election with a minority and came out of the election with a minority.
We are having an election today. So I thought this video might apply. Another thing to consider is the 9 “Billion” dollars our government paid out to Big Pharma for the “gene therapy/vaccines”. I guess the election campaign coffers are full…..
We’re having an election on Monday. The phone is ringing all the time…the last I heard it was a secret ballot….
“Can we count on your support?” They ask. I don’t think you can count on anything. “Pretty Boy” is looking for a majority government. Rumour has it he’ll be lucky if keeps his minority. We can always hope he gets kicked out on his keister. Who has an election during a pandemic?
