Second Thanksgiving

..or So Much to Be Thankful For. So much that it seems silly to specify and I’m not just saying that because I am too stuffed to sit upright. Wonder if there’s another country out there about to celebrate Thanksgiving. But I suppose three Thanksgiving dinners would really be pushing the limit. Guess I’ll just […]

Happy Thanksgiving

…or Seasonally confused. Yesterday I heard Christmas music playing in the stores while I was out shopping for Thanksgiving dinner stuff. What ever happened to the idea that to every thing there is a season? Wait, didn’t I already do Thanksgiving? Sure I did, back in October, when I was putting up the Halloween decorations. […]

Happy Detoxing Day

…..or In Pillory I’m completely over the pox Constitution as strong as an ox But I’d like a wee glass As I sit on me ass So be a doll and open these stocks! Thank God the Twelve Days of _oxing are over and done with. Now before you run out and schedule a real […]

Happy Poxing Day

Well, I am spending Poxing Day hanging over a bucket in bed with the Christmas Pox. Maybe a little glass of wine will help me feel better. No, I’m sure all the celebrating had nothing to do with this pesky pox. Could you pass me the bottle please, these little ones go down pretty fast. […]

Happy Jukeboxing Day

The jukebox, God rest its soul,and its minion, the 45 rpm record, have gone the way of the rotary dial telephone and the bite-sized electric chord organ. Back in the seventies there was a jukebox in any establishment in rural Newfoundland that had a sit-down eating table. And every pool hall where you wouldn’t want […]

Happy Coxing Day

Cox is short for coxswain. The coxswain is the little person who sits in the back of the boat and yells. I don’t have any of my own pictures of coxswains although I do have first hand experience. I rowed in a coxed four racing shell for a season in 1992. Our cox was named […]

Happy Paradoxing Day

This statement is false. There, that’s enough about paradoxes. Let’s get on with the celebrating. I know it’s only eleven o’clock, but it’s just a little one. See, it’s way smaller than my Soxing Day glass and a third the size of the one I had on Xeroxing Day. So I’ll just have two cause […]

Happy Loxing Day

Lox. For years I thought lox was smoked salmon and cream cheese combined. That is because cream cheese is a favourite companion to lox. Lox is salmon cured in brine. What we had for breakfast this morning was Gravlax; which is a Scandinavian version of lox. It has an herb coating. When lox is cold […]

Happy Knoxing Day

Oh my heavens, I just realized that all these years I have been spelling gelatine without an ‘e’. Wait a minute, my spellcheck agrees with me. Anyhow, yes, it is knoxing day. It is also New Year’s Eve so I won’t be getting into all the Knox people, places and things out there. The only […]
