toedtoes Jul 27th, 2007 08:02 PM

It's getting so close - I don't know if I can make it through another 2 weeks of work.

kodi Jul 27th, 2007 08:24 PM

....and some Smarties!
Why does work always get in the way of our travels? Oh yea, they pay for the trips!

toedtoes Jul 27th, 2007 09:10 PM

Oooh yes, thanks for reminding me. I've heard those Smarties are good stuff!!

toedtoes Jul 28th, 2007 09:34 AM

Seventeen days soon enough
Til I知 safe in Ottawa, ain稚 no guff!

kodi Jul 28th, 2007 01:07 PM

Oh, I love Ottawa!
If you wander down Elgin Street, a couple of blocks down, on the right hand side, there is a magazine store that has the greatest section of travel magazines that I've ever seen.
I always come home with a pile of new magazines... some from Britain and other parts of the world.

toedtoes Jul 28th, 2007 07:50 PM

I've been to that store. It's amazing what they have. Ottawa is one of my favorite cities - it's so calm and relaxed.

...and don't forget crepes with the mini-GTGers!

toedtoes Jul 28th, 2007 09:22 PM

Since we're "mini" GTGers, does that mean we get to pig out on crepes??? :-d

I am so looking forward to getting together with you all!!

toedtoes Jul 29th, 2007 10:03 AM

Sixteen days and then I値l be
Making some Canadian history!

kodi Jul 29th, 2007 10:12 AM

Do you mean our GTG will go down in history??? Wow!!
No wait, maybe you mean something else!!! What exciting things do you have planned up there in Ottawa???

toedtoes Jul 29th, 2007 10:17 AM

I thought that after you all meet me, you'll make August 27th a national holiday!! :-D

kodi Jul 29th, 2007 10:20 AM

Now there is a geat idea!! National Toadtoes Day.
Years from now little kids will be wondering why it's called that!

toedtoes Jul 29th, 2007 11:56 AM

Hey, if Tim Horton can become a saint, then I think it's only fair I become a national holiday. :-d

kodi Jul 29th, 2007 12:08 PM

Absolutely! And the same little kids probably don't know that Tim Horton was a hockey player. They probably think he invented coffee or something.

toedtoes Jul 29th, 2007 12:53 PM

I knew he didn't invent coffee, but he did invent the donut, right?

toedtoes Jul 30th, 2007 09:30 AM

Fifteen days and you値l know why
Canada is my idea of paradise!

(OK, you really won't know until I get home, but it rhymed...)

kodi Jul 30th, 2007 02:00 PM

Well, as hard as I try , I can't think of anything to rhyme. I'm not much of a poet.
So I'll just have to say in 15 days, Canada will shine a little brighter.
