As another #TGIF Friday rolls into a festive season December weekend, the saga of the whopper & the timbit, the merger of the USA’s Burger King chain with Canada’s coveted by some, Tim Hortons, is all but a done deal!!
Believe it or not, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been stopped by tourists on Vancouver’s beloved seawalls, who ask “could you tell me where the nearest Tim Hortons is, we’ve been told it is THE place in Canada to go for coffee!
Alrighty then!, if you say so!…
Cheers to your morning coffee!…..donut or a burger with that?!…reassuringly, kinda, sorta, maybe—terms of the deal stipulate the two brands must remain distinct according to Investment Canada.
Oddly enough yesterday, shell shocked, Vancouver’s bomb squad was sent out to Stanley Park to “remove and destroy safely” what was believed to be a possible Second World War mortar shell that was found in a wooded area between the HMCS Discovery naval base & Brockton Point.
“Found by a citizen that was combing the area with a metal detector”…..alrighty then, if you say so.
And last but not least, ’tis the season of (brace yourself for this), it’s actually been written about in today’s media, yes, ’tis the season of ‘snot and sniffles’.
Apparently, we all will experience it in some form or another as cold and flu season looms with tales of “nasal mucus.”
A few fundamental facts can be breathtakingly informative, however, one will spare you the details other than “it’s one of our basic weapons in our body’s protective arsenal and this stuff keeps us healthy!”
To be or snot to be?!….that is the question!….alrighty then!, if you say so.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Season’s Greetings.
Happy Holidays. Joyeux Noel.
Sometimes there can be things that seem & feel obligatory.
At other times, there can be the unexpected that’s beyond what we could ask or imagine.
Whatever it is that makes up your fine Friday & festive season weekend–
…may it be enticing and enjoyable…
…may it fill you with ‘bits’ of peace, hope, joy & love, &…
…may it see you bright eyed with a whopper of a smile, grinning—
…alrighty then!, if you say so!!!
