Well-lit at the Oscar Tango

So, after days and days of waltzing around in Keen sandals on dry pavement, this morning I looked outside and thought I might need boots and YakTrax. Yes. A nasty coating of ice everywhere. Uncomfortable walking even with YakTrax on. I probably did about two thirds of my usual walk. I could’ve done the whole thing but sorry, it just wasn’t any fun. If you look closely, you can see a couple of Photo Bombers in the photooo below.


The GG and I were texting evening plans at the end of the day. He was already walking downtown and I asked if I would need YakTrax on my own trek. “They’ll be overkill” was the answer and so they would’ve been although I stuck mostly to walking in the street because the sidewalks still had sneaky patches of ice here and there.


I *always* text the GG my progress as I walk down to meet him at the Oscar Tango on Friday evenings. Duncan, Wellington Park, Maryfield Park, Huron Dexter Jackson, Crest, 7th, Drop acid, not bombz! You guys know the drill. I did that tonight but I was also texting a bit with my beloved cuzzint Jay, who was walking down to meet us from Chez Harry over on the other side of town. In the end, we had *nine* people at our table including us, Jay & FOY, npJane, Rey, Mouse, and some Porterization.


Sooooo much fun. So many people talking at once over so much background noise. Sometimes that kind of situation drives me absolutely nuts but not tonight. It was lovely and I felt a wee bit of the Christmas spirit creep into my rather battered soul being with so many wonderful friends and relatives. After we parted ways, we had a wonderful walk back up the hill to The Landfill where I am currently adjusting to the xmas tree and the new location of the Red Puano…

Love you all,
Kayak Woman
