Le solitaire têtu

Un pommier solitaire croît dans le stationnement d'un motel, Le Jolibourg, à St-Sauveur-des-Monts.  Le croiriez-vous, il reste quelques 4 pommes dans l'arbre en ce 26 septembre.

Matter of fact

Last night, we all went to La Crêperie du Vieux Beloeil, in Beloeil of course, for supper.  We went in two cars since our cars are small.  On the way back, Ariane, 6 years and a 1/2, discussed her  3 former cats: one died accidentally and two of old age.  As the discussion evolved it turned to human deaths.
At one point, she told her aunts:"You will also die and when you are both dead, your house will be mine!"

The coin has been tossed

...and fell on the edge:  54 P.Q. MNAs and 50 Liberals, 19 Coalit6ion Avenir Québec and 2 Québec Solidaire.  We should have some very interesting moments in the coming months...and maybe a new elction within the next 12 months; but the Liberals will have to choose a new leader before we have one since the the ex-prime minister has resigned his leadership after being beaten in his own county.
Sic transit gloria mundi.

A toss of the coin

Tomorrow Québec will have a general elction to the Assemblée Nationale.  As of today, September 3, it is too close to call with over 20% of eligible voters claiming to be undecided as to who they will chose.
Of course it must be admitted that a "none of the above" option would be called for here; still tomorrow I will have to put a cross somewhere on that bulletin.  So I guess I will follow my ancestors advice: "Of two evils, chose the lesser one".  I will thus hold my nose and vote Liberal, Marie-Ève Pelletier, the Liberal candidate,   is a young woman and may bring something new to the grand old tired party.
