I love Canadian 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!
