Yes, a great new word. 100% credit to Bert Roach from Kipling Sask for the word. You invented it, I'll promote it. Deal? So, Dom and I are back in Montreal now after a whirlwind tour of Kipling. It was so good. Huge thanks to everyone in Kipling, and by extension the province of Saskatchewan, for the welcome you put on. The house is unbelievable. We are more than blown away by it all. We're just back in Montreal to "tie up some loose ends", eat as much poutine as humany possible, and get ready for the move to Kipling at the end of August. Yes, we're moving to Kipling. Yes, you're invited to the housewaming party.
So Sakatchewan is definitely Saskatchefun. Despite perennially getting the short end of the stick within Canada, I can hereby vouch that it is a great place to be. Dom and I are happy to add ourselves to the province's population (they want more people), and nothing will make me prouder than next July 12th when the world's largest red paperclip is unveiled in Kipling, thereby adding to the rampant prairie phenomenon of putting big things beside the road. Yes, I know there are other big things out there, but I'm stating here that Prairie Canada is the heartland of big things on the side of the road. Not sure what the wise elders who erected the giant paperclips in Norway will think of the big red paperclip in Saskatchewan, but I feel a paperclip-off coming on. That's going to be so sweet, a paperclip-off.
Anyhow, enough rambling. Kipling is awesome. I added a whole bunch of new pictures to the one red paperclip flickr set (more than one page on the link) and set up a special set for every picture we took over the last week or so. Some absolute gems in there. (again, more than one page.)
I'll regroup a bit, and tell you all about it over the next few days, but I have a real good feeling about Kipling. An especially the Labor day long weekend. This is going to be one housewarming party to remember.
