Canadian Holidays.
So Nestor, do you guys observe April Fools.
Any body have anyhting they're planning?

Nestor_Kelebay 03-30-2010 03:44 PM

Yes, April 1 is April Fools day here in Canada too.

I'm going to phone up some travel agents and ask about cruise ship tours to Australia or South Africa.

Then I'll tell them that when I was in the US Navy during WWII, it was a navy tradition that whenever a sailor crossed the equator for the first time, they had to jump overboard into the water. But, when that happened off the coast of Africa in August of '44, we were pursuing a German submarine, so we couldn't stop, and so no one jumped in the water.

So, now I want to make things right by jumping off the boat when I cross the equator this time.

Then I'll ask about any senior's discounts (cuz if I was 21 in 1944, I'd be 88 now.)

That should be fun.

I think our next actual holiday is Easter Sunday, which happens next Sunday.

Nestor, Where you in WW2? I'm working so I might try to find some way to mess with people. It's a kitchen so it has to be limited.

Nestor_Kelebay 03-30-2010 04:10 PM


No, I was born in 1956, so I'll be 54 soon.

I was in the big one, the Cold War. (1949 to 2001).

... but they can't tell nuthin over the phone.

Nestor, tell the travel agent that you have a vison defect, you suffer from night blindness and you have a seeing eye bat that you only use during nite time hours. Tell them you are afraid of falling overboard and you are curious as to what kind of accomadations they have to handle your handicap. If they give you any grief state the disabled and handi-cap laws, I'm sure Canada has some, if you don't we'll send you some. We have to many laws now and we wouldn't miss one or twenty.

Wait till thursday, if you do that tomorrow no one will find humor with the hat guy.

Maybe I'll make up a whole bunch of signs like this and post them all around Winnipeg for the benefit of the tourists.
