In the grand tradition of the Bulldog’s ‘Top 10 List’, I thought we could start a conversation of confessions.
Dear Ottawans – I once paid my property tax bill with pennies just to see if I could get the adage about “Being penny wise but pound foolish” adopted as the city’s official policy. Can you forgive me?
Dear Ottawans – I recently called City Hall to book a ticket on the first LRT ride to Kanata just to see if anyone there knew where Kanata was. Can you forgive me?

It has been about a week and I must confess that I tried to coin a new phrase. Nobody queried it.
In International under Trump and War, I said ‘arm flaying’. I was trying to make a play on words. I hoped someone would question that phrase.
” Arm Flaying “- The art of stripping the arms of government of their flesh and reducing them to mere bone.
Can you forgive me.

Ottawans- yesterday was the 5th birthday for the Bulldog and Ken deserves a big pat on the back.
But, yesterday was also a wedding anniversary. I had a choice between a traditional themed gift, a gem theme and a colour theme.
My wife seemed to like the colour of the sweater that I gave her (but I’m not sure).
Can you forgive me?

I started a topic about President Trump at the U.N. I actually said that he said some things that were right. Time will tell if he can start to talk in a statesman like manner and act like a leader for human rights. Can he walk and chew gum at the same time?
Can I forgive myself ?
Only time will tell.

Can I be forgiven for this one???
I posted a letter to ‘The Kim’, in which,I gave a few suggestions.
I told him to put away those nasty missiles. I suggested that if he really wants to settle things with ‘The Donald’ then all he needs to do is:
— find a better barber than he or Trump are currently using (should be easy to do),
— find a better tailor than he or Trump are currently using (ditto),
— bake up a Chocolate Cake ; one that is more glorious than the world has ever seen.
Then invite The Donald to a game of golf.
Winner takes all.
Can you forgive me ?

I must confess.
Yesterday, for my birthday, I was given one of those coffee makers that use the little plastic pods.
I, of course, was asked to try it and I did. I, even, drank the cup of coffee (or whatever that was) that came out of it. I smiled and said thank you. The presenters of the gift stayed overnight, and we had coffee from my new machine at breakfast. My guests left about a half an hour ago.
I got my good ole electric coffee percolator back out. I put in 9 tablespoons of coffee and 7 cups of water. I am currently enjoying an actual cup of coffee. Perc setting ‘strong’, water bubbled up and dripped down and back up and back down – etc.,etc..
How can a 3 second drip through a tiny plastic pod make coffee?
Answer — “It can’t.”
I will keep the new machine up on a shelf along with the pods. I’ll need to pull it down when my friends come again.
Can I be forgiven? Damn right I can. I drink coffee, not warm brown stuff.
