Meals on Wheels

Didn’t I just tell you that I prefer to spend outdoors on 30×30 Nature Challenge?  Well, I do.  Even on lunch break, I don’t chin wag with my colleagues and sit around at our lunch room or at the Food Fair.  Instead, I go search for the best Meals on Wheels. 
Hot dog stands.  These kiosks are so popular and the line-up would measure up as long as a football field.  Well, I am exaggerating.  Maybe, there are at least four people ahead of me. 
When it comes to line up, I prefer to entertain myself rather than get cranky waiting to be served because I am so hungry.  All I can think is that MSG on the hot dog.  It is so tasty and salty.  I just love the savoury flavour of a hot dog.  Jumbo dog is the best with all the trimmings. 
Anyway, to entertain myself, I either speak to the person in front or behind me as my victim.  If only they know, tee hee.  
There was this tall person in front of me and I crank up my head to say “Hello up there”.  He was towering over me.  And he seemed to be delighted with my opening line, (this is not a pick up line, ok!) and we started talking.  We talked about this and that.  To be a good conversationalist, I make sure I get the other person talking more that I do.  And he did talked a lot about himself. 
What I remembered the most was how he spent time with his son taking him on a helicopter ride to see an aerial view of Whistler Mountain.  To see the grandeur of the forest, the Gondola moving from one peak to another, the bears running around and to land on the glacier was an experience and a half for his son. 
Our conversation was cut short because he has to order and bid adieu.  That was the end of our intimate brief encounter. 
The following week, hot dog time again.  I just have to get rid of this craving.  There was hardly any line up and I saw this big poster of a man posted on the stand.  I asked the vendor if that is the owner of the stand and that I remember talking to him last week.  
“Do you mean you don’t know this person?” the vendor exclaimed.
“Am I supposed to know him?” I responded with a quizzical facial expression.
“What? Don’t you really know him?” he asked again.
“Does he know who Perpetua the seeker is?” I questioned the vendor. 
The vendor laughed at my retort. 
Guess who that man was.  No other than….

Life is Grand

Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie Sixteen Candles 86% positive.  When I think of myself as part of the movie, I am Robin, not Molly Ringwald.  Molly is a rotten tomato for her role and Robin’s role is the “crazy” one who had nothing to do with her day so she joined this group at school for a day.
Anyway, Life is Grand.  At sixteen, I was still climbing trees.  I love tree houses and imagined myself living in it with Tarzan.  All I want is a simple house where I can live happily ever after. 
Fast forward, no Tarzan, no treehouse either.  And Life is still grand.  I have shared with you what my place looks like and this is the link:  Clean Slate – Simplicity. 
As for the tree house, it exists up in Whistler Mountain.  To view, click on this link: 
Secret Treehouse.  Tarzan who built the treehouse is way too young.  Should I pursue him, I will be called the Cougar Lady.
