We are not writing as professional writers, but as casual bloggers making sure our fingers know the home row as well as they did when we were forced to practice asdfjkl; over and over and over again, without missing a stroke. Do you remember then, with the Smith Corona?
This is the last day of 2017, December 31, and Sunday will start a new year number 2018.
This flower was photograhed in Isola Bella this past September while we toured West Europe. Eight countries in 12 days is still a big blurr. It will take a while to digest what was gorged.
It has been busy for us in the office all year, especially during March and April when we are wholly focused on personal T1 Canadian Tax Returns, and still manage to keep up with the other bookkeeping and accounting issues so we don’t fall behind.
It has also been our sincere pleasure to serve you in that area that we are so honored to acquire from you, and to become your “part time permanent controller”, gives us the perfect purpose that we profess to enjoy and perform for you.
Please do not hesitate to contact us and leave a message as to the best time to contact you in response to your inquiry. We have found it is to our mutual advantage for us to stay focused on the work we have at hand, and not to be constantly picking up the phone, rather to pace ourselves, and reply back when we can take a break from our routine, and get prepared to respond to your needs as quickly as time permits. Please do not take offence to this, our practice, but engage us to be a part of your team.
The past few weeks have been really cold outside so we have just taken exercise by mall walking, and Netflix viewing. The exercise from the latter is by getting up to turn the fireplace setting to a lower one, and the former one is by circling like a hamster 5 times around to put in the 50 minutes of un-shopping. Just wait till the day the superintendent of the building approaches us with “we only allow shoppers in this mall”, or “will you be the newest mallwalker representative”. In the first case, we will invite them for coffee, and in that case, we are indeed a shopper, and in the latter, we would apologize as if cameras were causing us to become grossly shy.
- We have another blog referred to as Taxprep4u.ca and we are trying both out to see where the best bang for the bucks lies. I would believe that WordPress may be a little more inexpensive, and with that in mind, would love to pass the savings on to you as something learned today. We will surely keep you posted, and let you know when the beans are counted.
Take care, and drop us a line when the spirit guides you to do so.
I went to the Sail outlet to view the fishing reels being sold because it’s actually been about fifty years since I dangled a bamboo rod at the edge of the dock on Tindle Bay on Lake Chemong.
When it was mentioned to me that I was not a fisherman and a hundred dollar reel was out of the question, I purchased the last forty dollar demo at forty percent off.
I said when I show what kind if fisherman I really am, the hundred dollar one may be a waged present sometime, the opportunity presented itself the very next day.
What can I say? Hihihi!

By the way, do you know where this “featured image” can be located?
It’s on the “Artie” in Jackson’s Park, Peterborough Ontario, where I learned how to catch shiners and chubs with a dip net and a piece of bread dropped on the water’s surface. We let most of them go, and the rest became pets for a few days.
