    I saw footprints in my backyard this morning, passing right down the road to the Timmies. They were headed south.....

    I'm pretty sure there are both federal and provincial laws prohibiting that!!!

    I glimpsed what I thought were meese antlers behind a Tim Horton's on my way to Toronto last Wednesday... they're moving south! Prepare!

    They`ve been sighted at the Crystal Beach and Fort Erie Timmies getting (or leaving?) Timbits and trays of double-doubles....they are likely crossing the Peace Bridge now before the traffic gets heavy.
    Maybe that also explains why my round bale looks like it got attacked by a herd of meese!
    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you south of the border!

    There was a bit of a delay at the meese assembly point near St. Zotique in Quebec, due to a kerfuffle about meese invasion instruction signage not being provided first (and in larger typeface) in French. The language police were called in, and the signs were destroyed and replaced with language-conforming version at a cost of $11,268 in taxpayer funds.

    Also, the French meese would like it to be made clear to the US that they are invading on behalf of Quebec, NOT Canada. Accordingly, they will be demonstrating their allegiance to Quebec by leaving droppings in the shape of a fleur de lis instead of a maple leaf.

    Apparently, I have been nabbed to be a translator for the French meese, as my French is adequate, my meese is adequate, and my English is pretty good. I was worried about the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy (as I have to state I am only an honorary Canadian), but it seems they are desperate for interpreters this year.

    Zut alors!

    Will the quebecois meese mushers be bearing poutine? From the looks of the temperature contour map
    http://weather.unisys.com/surface/sfc_con_temp.html,

    they might be planning an arctic air assault as they invade....

    It would help if those up there on the border would close their gates, really.

    I think they are intending the invasion to be a wedge behind paralizing cold.
    They are aiming right for us first, the way that North Pole front is heading our way, to arrive here Thanksgiving dawn with a low of 10F.

    They don't know we are ready for it, have been hoarding for the past weeks wood, true blue cappuchinos and long johns.
    We are going to hold them back, not long until they melt in our returning heat by the weekend.

    Tabernac. Poutine was nixed this year, as part of the budget cuts affecting the arts.

    I'm pretty sure that meese came through our farm last night on the Siberian Express. The temp outside right now is 5F! There is no other explanation for that here in the banana belt of ID where the low should be closer to 40.

    I will check for meese plops later, but I expect they would be maple leaf shape this far west. No sign of any Timmis empties though.

    I am in central Ontario, but I think they passed through on their way to the US yesterday. Our temperatures dropped 10 C during the day.
