A kindly older woman asked me yesterday morning while waiting for the 95 bus, the way to get to 200 Lees Avenue, the new Ottawa University campus.
" I'm volunteering at the School of Nursing, I play an old lady who's husband has a heart attack at home and dies. We play-out the possible scenarios should they be called to a similar real scene.
I'll kill off two husbands today"
Says me, " Possibly you've done the same thing in your real life"
Nice old lady, " Good God no! My husband of 46 years died in my arms in CHURCH! He went to kneel and passed out on the floor. The priest says his soul never even touched the ground and went straight to heaven"

The Festival of Smalls 2016 is going strong!
Hope everyone has had a chance to see the Smalls either in gallery or online - It’s been a fantastic show!
It’s the second week of the Festival, and new works are arriving daily- many new pieces that didn’t make it to our opening (so check out below and ‘the latest’ on the site!).
Also, many artists are replenishing our walls with works from their ‘Smalls’ series' that sold out!
These are amazing gift ideas. All original. All under $250. There are even some Smalls under $50!
Hope to see you soon,
Lisa and Chira,

Harry on Rideau St. proud of the hat he says he made himself but a bit disappointed that all he could find at home was a pink string to tie it down. I asked Harry if that was his Halloween hat he said no but then went on to explain the time he was in Japan near Mt. High in a field of tall grasses and somehow cut and bent the tall grasses to make himself a pair sandals.

My loftmate Jessie decided she would enter the Marilyn Monroe look-a-like
contest one night way back in 1988. Our friend Jano,
fabulous hair dresser and living in our stairwell at the time, transformed Jessie
We took a streetcar to ‘Buddies In Bad Time’ theater for the event. Jessie made a scene on the streetcar by sitting on any man’s lap who would have her.
Once at there we soon realized Jessie was going to win without any trouble, her only competition was a 6 foot, 250 pounds transvestite.
Jessie got on stage and sang ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’ and 200 gay men went crazy,
she won first prize of $50.
We took the streetcar back and again Jessie 'worked the floor' to much hilarity. We ended up at the Beresford Tavern on Queen East near Seaton - cheap beer and wild locals.
