No call from the Health Minister so far. Oh well, can’t blame a girl for trying. At least she’ll get her copy of the documentary and the note I wrote if we aren’t able to connect.
In the meantime, Karen, Gage, and I had a great time cruising around the area (Carson went shopping for skates with Grandma and Grandpa). First we stopped in Chelsea, Quebec, in search of a firefighter to give a DVD to:
But this was all we could find:
And was not exactly what we had in mind. Why is this Dalmatian flashing passers by? It’s a disturbing display, particularly for a stuffed animal.
Anyhoo, we ended up finding someone significantly better to give a DVD to:
Meet Brad Steward, of www.adjoy.com We chatted with Brad for a long time and, as you can see, got a little too comfortable. Ah well, gotta keep it interesting. I think this photo was the 4th take and we were getting too acquainted for me to do any more serious attempts at a descent picture, hence him looking normal and me looking like a Bucky-o-Hare-like caricature of myself. Brad’s website raises money for charitable organizations by using social media as a way for website visitors to share videos. The sponsoring company then donates money to the charity per viewing of the video being shared. I smell potential people! I’m glad the only firefighter we could track down was a morally corrupt stuffed dog.
Karen, Gage and I then took a little tour of downtown Ottawa:
Zey popped out for a visit too.
I’m now in the process of gearing up to head to Montreal. Wish me luck!
