Deer at LU: Oct. 31/11

.
On Mondays (my day off) I often go to LU in order to run into some of the many people I know who study or work there (or neither). On this occasion I also spotted some of our urban deer just as I was leaving the campus.



First a doe crossed the path, leading me to think, "I bet there is another deer nearby." This is always a good thing to think when a deer successfully dashes across the highway in front of you.


And yes, there was a buck left behind on the other side of the path. As I moved in to take pictures, he decided to abandon his female friend and run off in the other direction.

Hallowe'en 2011

.
Heading to my office to work for the evening of Hallowe'en, I spotted K just starting to go trick-or-treating. I was not surprised to see that he had chosen a Star Wars costume!

"Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?"

Remember not to bother with doors that are locked.

First we learned about Peter the fisherman.
The photos on the table are from our trip to Israel
& show net-fishing on Kinneret.

And then, yes, we did have a big of a tangential drawing session.

General Grievous and Spider-Man

(Note the correct spelling of "Spider-Man".)

We do actually learn from the Bible, not just Star Wars! If you answer the Bible question, you get the $ value of the square on which you've landed.

Thunderwolves Hockey: Oct. 7 & 8/11

.
I won LU Thunderwolves tickets from CBC Radio One. Because there were only a few who entered, they gave me tickets for both Friday & Saturday's games (against the McGill Redmen).

On Friday I spotted Kevin Pollock in the ticket line & so he got my 2nd ticket. I couldn't find anyone for the 2nd game. Wolfie already had a ticket.


McGill won both games.

Good thing there was no mail slot there, or they might have found several voter ID cards with handwritten votes inside the door.
