Oh, Canada!
Good morning.

I will be leaving for this place at 4:15 a.m. tomorrow morning for 5 days of gorgeous Banff wilderness, fireplaces and hot drinks.

I will also be attending my first legal gay wedding because in Canada, two unrelated people of legal age can marry each other regardless of gender. Shocking, I know. It's frankly a wonder why we all don't live in Canada by now and just leave this place to the red staters - but then, there's my answer.

The fact is, in Canada there are more guns and far fewer gun-related deaths.

Marijuana decriminalization is being bantered about seriously by parliament.

Same sex marriage was legalized on July 20, 2005.

We are way behind.

Anyway, the photo above is of the Banff Springs Hotel where I will be staying. That photo was taken in the summer. Here's how it will look when I arrive and it is -8 degrees Fahrenheit. Wish me luck!


Stumble It!

Wow, it's absolutely gorgeous! Hope you took your wool skivvies!

The reason I personally don't mosey on over to Canada was pointed out in your post: -8 degrees! Not even my freezer likes it that cold. brrr!

O Canada! Where they not only let the queers get married, but they let them do it IN CASTLES.

Banff is gorgeous and the one must-do thing: dogsledding. I know, I'm a mid-western girl and of course dog-sledding would be on my list - but it was the most positively breath-taking experience (and I don't mean like a punch in the stomach breath-taking) I had when I was there a few years ago. Enjoy and bliss your little self right out -
