Lunedi Lunacy

The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) has long been known for their short-animations and I, like most Canadians, grew up watching these cartoons:

BlackFlies - are only fun to sing about not get bitten by and believe me North Ontario will be alive with them in the next few weeks.



The Big Snit has a more adult theme.



There are so many more out there - maybe I should just start an NFB weekly post.

I heard it say something about picking my bones in north ontario. They will also eat you alive in Vermont. We used to call late spring black fly season. We also called the miserable things no-see-ums. If you've never experienced them, you might almost prefer a kick in the balls.

Sigh!!! Picking my bones. Picking my bones. The animation shows a bunch of blackflies picking bones. I try to bring Canadian culture to the world and what happens. LOL

And boy is EG right - if you've ever been bitten by even just two or three blackflies you might just prefer that kick in the balls.

It must be hard on you, Willym, being the only civilized one in the crowd. We appreciate your guidance and forbearance ("kicking my balls in North Ontario," hee hee).

#2 was funny/ scary! As an old married, I get nervous that I might turn into her - taking out my eyes, yelling at my husband not to saw the table ("Sawing for Teens," Ha!).

Elizabeth: Well I guess this a a good place to be if I'm aiming for Sainthood.

Auld Hat: Yeah ain't it?

Boy: So glad the babe is back.

Sling: My cousin said that once about an old girl friend. I was never sure what he meant.
