Statuary Holiday

It is a tradition hereabouts that every single Statutory Holiday a bunch of people flock to the local Facebook group to ask which stores are open, followed by a horde of people patiently answering the question to the best of their abilities, another horde of people stating their views on the pros and cons of people being forced to work on a Statutory Holiday, and the odd lonely voice complaining about people who ask about which stores are open. Today’s odd lonely voice made repeated references to “statuary holiday”, which at least gave me a chuckle.
Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Canadians!

Happy Birthday, Ken

I spotted this image on Facebook t’other day …

… and immediately thought of Ken Butler. As you do.

Coincidentally, his birthday was only a couple of days away, so I asked Jan to transcribe what faintly looked like a musical score to my old eyes. Again, as you do. The result is perhaps not likely to be a big hit, but it’s all yours, Ken … Happy Birthday!
