know your local zombie

The Mutfords have picked a heckuva time to come to Alberta on spring break. Sure they have been having a blast skiing in the mountains, but they slide into Calgary today on the heels of political turmoil and bringing with them - so it is forecast - a late winter snow storm. As I recall, the last time everybody's favourite Yellowkife family was in town, they brought a wild late winter storm down upon us then as well. This can't be mere coincidence.

But even if we agree not to discuss politics or the weather when the Mutfords break bread with us tomorrow evening, I am confident that we will find plenty to talk about. After all, John now knows all about my issues with geography, thanks to my recent Canadian Book Challenge participant profile that he hosted on his long-running blog, The Book Mine Set. Do check it out, and discover for yourself just how many gut-wrenching (literally) attempts it took me to finally discover that I have a sensitivity to squid.

Guess what I will not be serving for dinner?

I hope it all goes well and you aren't stranded together!

All went well, Chris! Nobody got stranded and nobody was even involved in one of the hundreds of collisions that happened that day.

John Mutford said...

Thanks for the lovely visit!
And we did talk about the weather and politics AND we survived-- earmarks for a great evening.

It was grand to see you again, John. Thanks for braving the roads to dine with us.
