Due to a glitch in the organizational machine, I failed to get the winter rugs laundered until yesterday. And I paid for that oversight, having to park at the opposite end of the parking lot, and then having to schlep five giant rugs across the icy ruts. Thanks to my finely tuned muscular body, though, I made it back to the urban assault vehicle without dropping any carpets in the snowbank. But then I couldn't leave because there was a linen delivery vehicle (the irony was not lost on me) double-parked behind me, blocking me in.
I couldn't get annoyed though, because it was obvious that the poor delivery guy was having a far worse day than me. The door to the dental office, to which he was attempting delivery, was inexplicably locked, so he had to schlep his linen all the way back to his truck. There was a lot of schlepping of cotton happening today.
But glory be, I returned home to discover a City of Calgary snow plough making a pass down my street. This is only the second time I have ever seen a snow plough on my street in the thirteen years that we have lived here. Mayor Nenshi continues to make good on his election promises. And I continue to believe we elected the right person to run this city.
And finally, Shaw Cable has announced that they are going to start charging $1.00 for people to watch the fireplace channel. The money will go to charity. I don't generally watch the fireplace channel, as we do have a fireplace of our own, but I am one of the 39,305 fans of the Guy Who Pokes the Fire on the Fireplace Channel facebook page.
