I saw a number of interesting things yesterday. For your pleasure, I shall include a sampling of them below, with the notable and regrettable exception of the artistic maple leaf tattoo I saw on a burly college boy’s calf in Prince’s Island Park. I was afraid if I asked him to let me photograph it, he would think I was laughing at him. (And I was, a little. I couldn’t help it. It was the prettiest maple leaf I ever saw.)
Ahem. A heart made of yellow and pink rubber gloves out front at The Art Gallery of Calgary:
A unicorn pub:
And speaking of unicorns, an open HMV:
A grate with what I called “training wheels for people who are scared of crossing grates” but which a Calgarian (or perhaps just Albertan) tweeter @HappyLilDevil
informed me is “ accommodation for heels.
. Canadians are considerate.”
Last but not least, I saw this sign for a shop promising “Lingerie” and “Cat Fancier Gifts:”
My naive little heart could just not let go of the possibility that there would be cat toys at this lingerie store.
There weren’t. I checked.
Today I leave for Whitehorse, but one more Calgary recap will be coming your way on Pure Happy Travel
! And, as an editorial aside, may I note that Twitter becoming more and more popular is making my job more and more fun? Thanks, Biz.
