If the Women Don’t Find You Handsome

Another blast from the past!

There are a few DIY tasks around the home I can handle, a few I can’t.  I’m a seasoned painter, when I want to be, despite the fact that most every room in our house is overdue for a makeover.  I can tackle minor plumbing jobs; replace a tap or a toilet, even though my wife takes issue with the fact I repaired a leaking shower nozzle with a wine cork.  Don’t laugh, it worked.  In-wall repairs are beyond my expertise level, so until I get around to calling a plumber, problem solved. Of course in the interim, the shower is out of commission, but at least the tub’s still functional.

Years back I installed our dishwasher, although I won’t ever do so again.  The struggle to connect the water line in such an incredibly tight space, and not kink it, prompted a proliferation of profanities that mirrored the Old Man’s battle with his…

As luck would have it, an alert and quick-footed CBC Reporter grabbed the malicious marmot, seconds before he made good his escape.

For his heroic efforts, the young Reporter received a love bite, from an angry marmot.

Which begs the question.

Is my 2017 prediction coming true?

Is Shubenacadie Sam merely playing his audience—catering to an adoring public in an ingenious bid to land the lead role in Groundhog Day II – the Sequel?

If you have any doubt, behold my prophecy from one year ago; Scandalous Prognostication.

With December upon us, traditional seasonal movies and shows have begun to monopolize the entertainment spectrum within our household. Polar Express, our annual kick-off-the-season film, was scratched off the list last weekend, along with back-to-back animated UK shorts, The Snowman and Father Christmas, and the Netflix Special, A Very Murray Christmas.

Home Alone, Scrooged, and Christmas Eve on Sesame Street, are just a few that are on tap for this Saturday—amongst others.

I’d written previously on my Top Ten Christmas Movies, and despite the convenience (and appeal) of a quick re-blog, there was little value in regurgitating a prior post, especially since my picks remain solid—immovable, like a tongue frozen to a flag pole.

To mix things up a bit however, I delved a little deeper into my psyche, analyzing my selections; what I liked, who I liked, and why.

Which led me down the pathway…
