The salmon dinner with the in-laws was indeed delicious, and the wine I found in the basement — a 2017 Viognier from the south of France — was perfect.

As for the bathing suit thing, I decided a while ago that, since my dancing days are apparently done, I should swim as if no one is watching.

And now Thanksgiving is behind us, Christmas planning has begun. Elder Brother phoned yesterday to invite himself & SIL to Stratford for the holiday, which gives me the best of all possible reasons to not leave town myself. I really don’t like to travel at Christmas — the weather is too iffy, and too many other people are doing the same thing. On Christmas Eve, any service centre on Highway 401 could easily sub for the doorstep of Purgatory if not the Inferno itself.

Public observation of Remembrance Day is back this year, complete with veterans on parade with the local militia unit. I must dig out my woolly socks, flannel-lined trousers and ear-muffs for the occasion. Every year, I enjoy the thought of my dear old sergeant’s face if she could see me in a CF beret with beaver ear-muffs on top.
