MY THEORY... (308/365 DAYS, 4.0)

I recently visited a park 
and noticed something scribbled on one of the benches.

"Deep Thought

Some people can't resist the temptation of leaving their mark. 
Upon reading this, 
I can only deduce that a man, 
because I suppose men are more prone to do something like this, 
so, as I was saying, 
a man was [possibly] eating his lunch while sitting there, 
checking out his emails and such on his smartphone, 
enjoying a [rare] sunny break 
with the branches swaying above his head. 
A most pleasant moment surely, 
until a bird in that tree "blessed" him... 
Hence the scribbling!! 
It's still better than some of the things one can read 
in a men's room... 

Have a great weekend!!

G'morning Montreal!! (302/365 DAYS, 4.0)

I've been quiet this week for a simple reason: 
2 migraines in one week... 
Rather exhausting!! 
I'm still fragile visually, 
but not totally blind, 
as I captured this moment in the middle of the week, 
where the light was simply beautiful. 



I'm glad to be able to share this with you now. 
I heard snow in the forecast today... 
I do not rejoice at that 
as it only means that shorts will leave room for long pants, 
for the next 5 months at least!! 
Oh well!! 
My days are long 
but time goes fast. 
Hard to believe this year is already coming to a close. 
It's been an odd one for me, 
but I remain hopeful that things will come back to normal
if such a thing exists... 

Enjoy your weekend 
and don't forget to change your clocks tonight: 
one extra hour of sleep, 
for those who sleep!!

MONTREAL ZOMBIE WALK 2014 (297/365 DAYS, 4.0)

Montreal was the theater of a scary event, 
In broad daylight, 
a gang of zombies invaded the streets for a while, 
much to the delight of bystanders. 

Ladies first!!

While I might have been in the mood for a drink, 
those cocktails this waitress was holding  didn't tempt me at all. 
I still prefer a lime wedge to finger tips...


While it was the pair in the foreground that caught my attention, 
I noticed another pair just behind, 
and I saw they had noticed me as well... 


Guys being guys!!!

Odd Creatures!!

Miss Piggy and Kermit's demise... 
It is not the first time I see this person, 
and I remember her and her kid two years ago, 
as a scary nurse. 
Very clever costume!!

As I was walking on de Maisonneuve to go to the parade, 
I came across these folks who made quite an impression, 
You see them now in the parade.

Standing above the rest. 
Quite impressive!!

Cast ensemble!!

I enjoyed this in general. 
I'll mention that some people shouldn't be there, 
because they don't have the right attitude, 
speaking on their cellphone or to their friends, 
smiling instead of growling, 
spoiling the effect for those watching, 
and mainly, 
for those who put in much efforts to deliver a good show 
with their costume and acting the part. 
those who invade the parade to snap a few pictures.... 
You are supposed to stand on the side. 
If you want to be in the parade, 
do what must be done, 
or get the heck out of there!! 
Congrats to all participants 
and see ya all next year!! 

I have only one regret here. 
During the parade, 
I kept hearing the screeching cries of zombies 
but they didn't seem to move on as people walked by... 
I looked at the participants and couldn't locate the source. 
That's until I realized it was a bystander right across the street. 
I should have taken his picture, 
or better yet, 
shot a video, 
as he provided a great ambiance, 
much to the delight of everyone all around. 
He had it perfectly!!
