What can I say about a city with a Crackhead mayor who fancies himself a philosopher, saying "It is what it is". Oh please. I think that it is pretty fair to just say, as we did back in the day, "Liar Liar Pants on Fire".. I have not lived in Toronto for many years. I miss the city, but not this week. You have to laugh or you will cry. Any late night TV show will make you do both. It is so embarrassing, yet in some way comical. Toronto is having its 15 minutes.

Now as mentioned, we have a cat and a dog. Our cat has made her way to Toronto with Bridget last year when Bridget was concerned that she might be lonely while Derek and I were away. Mai was whisked to Toronto by planes, trains and automobiles in a knock off Louis Vuitton cat carry case. It was very stressful, for both of them and upon arrival in Bridget's dorm, Mai lost it. Her visit lasted a little over a week, with Kevin stepping up to care for the cat as things were not too pretty in residence. Bridget is still beholden to her brother and I expect always will be.

This business of travelling pets is new to me. We didn't have pets growing up, so I was unaware that pets had anywhere they really had to go. Our dear friend needed to transport a rabbit by train from Brockville. I expect there are some sort of "no rodent" restrictions on Via Rail and if not, having the Easter Bunny hopping a pooping all over the railcar may make the trip stressful for Mary. With amazing ingenuity, this rabbit was bundled up in a travel box and then wrapped up as a large birthday gift. You have to love that idea.

I have enjoyed several trips to Toronto this year. I love the updates to the TTC. I embrace the animals roaming the street. I treasure the visits with our children. I used to worry about them in the big city, but now that Mayor Ford has agreed that Drunken Stupors will not longer take place on the Danforth, I can sleep easy.
