It has been a bit chilly out today; -28C without the windchill. My question of course was where did the windchill go? Apparently the windchill decided it was too cold and left for Mexico, like half the town of Niverville
So in this winter prairie ghost town. It was just Early Spirit and the ghost of great Super Bowls haunting the town last night. We had some fun though, us the west coast “ambadassadors” of snowflake gridlock. Us relaying the news of lotus land lockdown.
Yep, there was a trace of snow in Rainy town (Vancouver) yesterday, the kind of trace the locals of Niverville throw on the bbq at the of summer. Hats off to the good folk of Niverville, those Nivervillians who stayed to hold up the fort.
On second thought better keep those hats on, you never know when that windchill is coming back home with a mean tan and a frozen Margarita in its hand. Cheers
Check out the wildlife we discovered en route to Niverville. This was captured by Bill Spornitz; One of those rare Manitoba Waka Jawakas. More dangerous than a moose.
Fun show last night just outside of Selkirk, home of John Mann, or at least that’s where he sprouted from. In the earliest days of Spirit Of The West John being younger than Geoffrey or myself, was a little “lean” on bio material. So we made up his history with The Selkirk Folk Band. Occasionally this “career experience” would come back to haunt him. We teased him over the years about it, his greatest gig. Maybe they’ll have a reunion one day.
For now we pack up the Dawg Sled and head to niver Niverville. Hoping to glimpse the whitened prairie before the storm. I hear there’s a ranch in Niverville that has llamas and a chimp named Bubbles. Knock on wood we’re not bound by blizzard, and we can continue the tour, one by one Tim Hortons at a time.
Thanks Eddy for recommending us to play the half time show at this years Super Bowl. We’d love to , but we’re booked at a curling tournament in Kellwood.
Chat with ya a little further down the road.
Gday fellow Spirits,
We’re just about to embark on our sojourn to the great Canadian plains.
Today was -36 in WPG without the windchill. So that’s about 150 below if there’s a breath of breeze.
The human soul freezes at half that.
I’ve purchased the warmest underwear on the market.
It’s made of some kind of yak wool composite. I believe they add some of the hoofs , horns and dander.
That’s the secret ingredient combination, much like what Col. Sanders added to his chicken recipe
So now we’re packing up the private jet and whisking off to see how les Voyageur did it. (Les, as you Jet fans would know, was the right winger who played on the same line as Dale Hawerchuck)
Can’t wait to call out “mush” and get the Dawg sled rolling.
Feel free to send us your vacation photos of Hawaii!
Cheers, The Earlies
Hey fellow Spirits,
