We had a short week this week here in Canada due to the Family Day Holiday. They are calling for snow, but since we've only had a handful of snow this year, I'm not buying it. It's raining right now so let's hope the temperature doesn't plunge. This weekend will be a fairly quiet one. I am going away next Wednesday so I will be busy getting my suitcase ready and work completed so no one notices I'm gone. Foster dog if not adopted by then will be spending his days at the Raz Man's office. He's been a few times and left his calling card both times.

For the most part, I keep track of birthdays and always throw a party, buy a decent gift, and bake a huge cake, but this year for my eldest brother, I basically skipped it. It was 10 days ago, and other than a "hey happy birthday" call, I did zippo...zero..nothing. So guilt crept up and I am hosting a family dinner in his honor on Sunday.

I think I may barbecue something, that is if we don't get the foot of snow predicted. Other than that, all I know is the cake will be chocolate. Last year I bought him a candle. A really good one, in a nice tin with a manly aroma of cigars and leather and bacon. The rest of the family thought it was a ridiculous gift for a man. Which sparked a discussion on whether men like to be given candles. Bro had to admit it was a great gift since he was sitting at my dinner table. He's a hip dude. He cooks, has a nice apartment with lots of art and bits from his travels. I thought it was a good gift. I guess I should ask the male readers what they think. Tom, John, Mark.....is a candle a decent gift for a fella?
