I love Canadian money...it is so colourful!



This is real coloured money...not like the coffee stains they call colour on the new US bills. And come on...who doesn't love "loonies" and "toonies"?

[For those who don't know, Canada has $1 and $2 coins (no $1 or $2 bills)...the "loonie" is the $1 coin, named after the loon (a well known bird in Canada) on the back of the coin; the "toonie" is a $2 coin, aptly named because it is the value of two loonies, get it? The loonies are the gold coloured coins and the toonies are the two-toned coins.]

It's Dec. 1st - are you in a home of some kind?

Still technically homeless -- we found a Days Inn with a great monthly rate so we're staying there in order to get better picks on places opening Jan 1.

Maid service, in-house restaurant and (spotty but free) internet -- what's not to like?

Try not to get TOO USED to that "Slap Maxwell" lifestyle, my friend!
