This Thursday, there is no knit group for me. Fred, Peter and I are off on a little, post-winter jaunt to Ottawa. While most Canadians seek warmer climes for their travelling pleasure this time of year, we have decided to see what we can do to help the politicians run the country. Such a difference you will notice after our visit! :-)
Friday morning, we have seats reserved for Question Period. I've read the protocol and see that we can't even applaud! I guess that means booing is out too. I hope the politicians are in fine fettle. What fun to see them attacking, yelling, shaking fists at each other. Democracy in action.
Over the weekend, we'll take in the National Art Gallery, The National War Museum, National Aviation Museum and Fred's favourite - The Royal Canadian Mint! (I see there is a boutique at the Mint. Wonder what they sell?) Add in lots of fine food, a hotel with a pool, a chamber maid to make my bed and tidy my room, wandering the ByWard Market and I see a wonderful antidote to a long winter and a bad cold.
Any messages you would like conveyed to the Prime Minister?
