…Have Been close call when Ontario Govt declared Miz Jo GONE, NO MORE, thank goodness it was A GREAT EXAGGERATION.
Have Been Greatly Exaggerated”…
A quote from Mark Twain in response to his biogr(in 1897). Well, the same line coulda been used by Miz. Jo last Thurs aft in a conversation with Baz (not his real name), our phavourite pharmacist. Actually, yours truly had called him earlier in the day about a prescription I needed, he said ”Jo Ann’s also due for a refill on one of her meds”. “Cool….I’ll pick ’em both up Fri ayem”. By the bye, Miz. Jo’s R/x is fairly new, for her B/P and had already been re-filled once. Then we get another call from him about 2:00PM….some ‘Ont Gov’t rules’ that all ‘dispensaries’ are subject to, saying that Miz. Jo’s R/x ‘CAN’T be filled’. C’mon man! WTF goes here?! Then he tells me why not….and it’s definitely a ‘Bad Day At Black Rock’ moment! Not good at all! According to current Ont Gov’t records Miz. Jo is DEAD! Gone. Kaput. Promoted to glory (*see below) on 2 SEPT 2022. S–t! That is the heck of me/us! There was no ‘obituary’ in the Expositor….no sympathy cards/letters/condolences….
It’s Tyme For ‘The Horn of Plenty (*see below)….
….and of course, Tyme To Give Thanks….I suppose for anything/everything that is ‘thanksworthy’….and Rotzy and Miz. Jo will join hands Sun. at dinnertyme for my/our own Grace….generally done here in Unit #303 at Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. And, yours truly being a ‘traditionalist’ (Miz. Jo would add ‘anal’ to that) it would mean Turkey, Turkey and Turkey for all three dinners, because I LIKE turkey, it’s cheap, supplies meat for 3 or 4 meals! And yes….I guess Rotzy IS a tad ‘anal’….altho a nice smoked Ham might land on the table for Easter! I’m ‘cool’ with that. Well, ‘tradition’ is going out the window in the Fall of 2022, and in the door comes ‘takeout’….or as the ‘mericans call it, ‘takeaway’….from Swiss Chalet! (*see? The American word even rhymes!) So….SO…. Miz. Jo saw/read the flyer for their ‘Festive Holiday Dinner’, ”with dressing, cranberry sauce….ALL the trimmings”….assuming the meat to be turkey. Assuming. Well, it isn’t…S/C ‘doesn’t DO Turkey.’ So, is that the end of the world? Methinks not! Hell….we both really enjoy S/C Chicken, and tell you what….I’m gonna heat a can of Turkey Gravy and ladle some all over my plateful. What a great idea Miz. Jo! Takeaway from Swiss Chalet!
The “F/N” D.O.T.W.
To be sure, there’s never a shortage of dinks around Brant’s Ford….tho you’ll not encounter any at a BGG Meeting….but THIS ‘Dink Of The Week’ didn’t even break a sweat enroute to capturing his crown! To ‘set the scene’, the “F/N” readership might recall Rotzy’s love of cell fones. NOT!!! They’re fine for those who know how to use them well/properly and have some ‘RESPECT’ for others, to quote Aretha. OK. Zehr’s Market was super busy Fri! ALL 8 cashiers lights on, 5 or 6 customers jammed in each line with their carts and baskets….then ‘Cell Fone Man’ rolls his cart in, one row over from Rotzy at the rear of our lines….and Mighty Mouth’s already on a roll, on his fone. He is VERY loud, VERY annoying and he does NOT see, hear nor care about ANYBODY else within 25 ft. And beyond. People start changing lanes to getaway from the non-stop yattering and after five minutes Rotzy slid two more lines over….this went on for 15 minutes, whilst unloading his cart, bagging his groceries, even when he was paying. BUT, as far shutting this —hole up, he’s young (30-35) well over 200 lbs and has big arms….probably NOT one Rotzy should walk up to and tell him…”Hey Stupid….lose your fone will ya”!!! or ”Yo! Shut it down, Jerk”!! or “Congrats Numbnutz….You’re The Dink Of The Week”!!! (Rotzy’s Rant of the week)
Last Thursday At 4:03PM EDST….
….former Blue Jays star Edwin Encarnacion threw the ‘Ceremonial Pitch’ to open the Jays/Seattle ALCS ….a 70 MPH Change-up/perfect STRIKE!! Then as he jogged back to the bench, up came his famous/trademark ‘Wing’ (his right arm), to the DEE-light of the 48,000 fans! Well….THAT was IT for the Jays ‘Hi-Light Reel’…Game One….AWFUL! Game Two….WORSE…because they ‘had it and lost it’! *Thought Of The Day…Can’t ‘get up’ to vote? You may have ‘Electile Dysfunction’.
