    In the grand tradition of the Bulldog’s ‘Top 10 List’, I thought we could start a conversation of confessions.

    I’ll start:

    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?

    Dear Ottawans – When I was on the Citizen editorial board, I once supported Jim Watson for mayor. Can you forgive me?

    With reference to Mr. Gray’s post from today:

    Dear Ottawans – I called the City Hall and asked for directions to the Canadian Tire Centre just to see if they’d tell me where to go. Can you forgive me?

    And, by the way , they gave me directions to a Canadian Tire store on Coventry Road.

    Interested Reader, you fared better than me. I usually get directed to a hot, dark, dry place.

    Ron,
    I don’t know if that was a confession but it was funny.

    How about my confession that I once chased a spider with a toy horse to see if the spider would run away or fight. It only cost me $5 to buy the toy horsey and I am happy to report that the toy won, Can you forgive me?

    Ottawans, I once sent a half page memo to city hall. I explained; therein, how to write a memo. They send me a 12 page response. 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?

    Chaz:

    If the sweater doesn’t work out, you could always give her a subscription to The Bulldog.

    cheers

    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.

    skoal,
    Chaz
