Lunedi Lunacy

It beats Tex and Edna Boil's Prairie Warehouse and Curio Emporium and eBay all to hell!  Why you can get used tug boats, bomb resistant safes, fire hoses, hand sanitizer stands and all sorts of goodies at the Government of Canada Surplus Store.  Items are government overstocks, out of date equipment or items seized at the border or in raids on homes.  One small catch - you have to pick it up and as much as I'd like that Jumbo Refractometer I'm not going all the way to Moose Jaw to get it.  Guess I'll just have to wait until Christmas.

I offer without comment this little item which I am assuming was lifted at the border - for bad taste if not for breaching some unknown customs regulation:




13 February - 1881: The feminist newspaper La Citoyenne is first published in Paris by the activist Hubertine Auclert.

Moose Jaw is lovely this time of year, you know. It could be a lovely little romantic getaway trip for you and the hubz.
