Gavin is wearing snow pants.
We don't think ribbons are needed. Maybe just do your Fav few, or bring ribbons, tape with you.

The high will only be -5. Will he make it the whole day? Maybe you should rig up a little dog warmer for him (not just for tomorrow).

I can't find anything particularly good online. It seems that the portable heated dog shelter does not yet exist. (All of the ones I found need to be plugged in).

You could probably rig up a soft cooler with a reusable heating pad in the bottom. Drag it around in a cheap sled/saucer. The Yo will be so cozy!

Or there is the tried and true method of Tokyo living in Stace's coat.

The Weather Network has the high at -2, feels like -12. Frozen Yo me thinks.

http://www.theweathernetwork.com/weather/caqc0782

I will not have ribbons on my discs (they are already cold and I can't imagine that "grass pushing through" is enough to warrant them--read; too lazy).

I will not have snow pants on. Fleece lined with long johns underneath.

Sadly, the snowshoes will stay at home. Winter boots have replaced the shoes in the closet.

I will be bringing mostly understable BIG discs to compensate for the change in air temperature.

An aside: Just re-read Dr. Darco's paper. http://www.odgc.ca/files/dg-flightphysics-mkIV.pdf thumbsup

I, for one, am not going to let "science and facts" get in the way of my understanding of how discs fly.

Just as you recently complimented a member on their Quebec-appropriate choice of beverage, let my now compliment you on your Capital-area-appropriate ability to speak like a true team player.

Tried for a google image for "over my head" and found this instead.



Love Calvin and Hobbes.

From: http://bookriot.com/2012/02/06/sixteen-things-calvin-and-hobbes-said-better-than-anyone-else/

Quote:
On lifeís constant little limitations
Calvin: You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants donít help.

On expectations

Calvin: Everybody seeks happiness! Not me, though! Thatís the difference between me and the rest of the world. Happiness isnít good enough for me! I demand euphoria!

On why we are scared of the dark

Calvin: I think night time is dark so you can imagine your fears with less distraction.

On the unspoken truth behind the education system

Calvin: As you can see, I have memorized this utterly useless piece of information long enough to pass a test question. I now intend to forget it forever. Youíve taught me nothing except how to cynically manipulate the system. Congratulations.

On the cruel reality of commercial art

Hobbes: Van Gogh wouldíve sold more than one painting if heíd put tigers in them.

On the tragedy of hipsters

Calvin: The world bores you when youíre cool.

On the tears of a clown

Calvin: Isnít it strange that evolution would give us a sense of humour? When you think about it, itís weird that we have a physiological response to absurdity. We laugh at nonsense. We like it. We think itís funny. Donít you think itís odd that we appreciate absurdity? Why would we develop that way? How does it benefit us?

Hobbes: I suppose if we couldnít laugh at things that donít make sense, we couldnít react to a lot of life.

Calvin: (after a long pause) I canít tell if thatís funny or really scary.

On the falling of sparrows (or providenceís lack of a timetable)

Calvin: Life is full of surprises, but never when you need one.

On why winter is the cruellest of seasons

Calvin: Getting an inch of snow is like winning 10 cents in the lottery.

On the gaping hole in contemporary artís soul

Calvin: People always make the mistake of thinking art is created for them. But really, art is a private language for sophisticates to congratulate themselves on their superiority to the rest of the world. As my artistís statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance.

On playing Frankenstein with words

Calvin: Verbing weirds language.

On realising God is more Woody Allen than Michael Bay

Calvin: They say the world is a stage. But obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines.

Hobbes: Maybe thatís why itís hard to tell if weíre living in a tragedy or a farce.

Calvin: We need more special effects and dance numbers.

On why ET is real

Calvin: Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

On looking yourself in the mirror

Hobbes: So the secret to good self-esteem is to lower your expectations to the point where theyíre already met?

On the future

Calvin: Trick or treat!

Adult: Whereís your costume? What are you supposed to be?

Calvin: Iím yet another resource-consuming kid in an overpopulated planet, raised to an alarming extent by Madison Avenue and Hollywood, poised with my cynical and alienated peers to take over the world when youíre old and weak. Am I scary, or what?

On the truth

Calvin: Itís a magical world, Hobbes, olí buddyÖLetís go exploring!



Genius.

Quote:
On the secret of immortality: combine predestination with procrastination

Calvin: God put me on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I am so far behind that I will never die.

On the perfect response to lifeís most imperfect explanation

Calvinís Dad: The world isnít fair, Calvin.
Calvin: I know Dad, but why isnít it ever unfair in my favour?

On why water balloon fights should be compulsory after retirement

Calvin: My only regret is blowing the best day of my life while Iím so young

On why most super geniuses end up Bond villains with thermonuclear devices

Calvin: People think it must be fun to be a super genius, but they donít realize how hard it is to put up with all the idiots in the world.

On something weíve all thought when confronted with an udder

Calvin: Who was the first guy that look at a cow and said, ďI think that Iíll drink whatever comes out of those things when I squeeze them?Ē

On mankindís abusive relationship with natureís wonder

Hobbes: If people could put rainbows in zoos, theyíd do it.

On scienceís next big adventure

Calvin: In my opinion, we donít devote nearly enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks.

On the ennui felt by those who long to get their morning coffee from Central Perk

Calvin: Why isnít my life like a situation comedy? Why donít I have a bunch of friends with nothing better to do but drop by and instigate wacky adventures? Why arenít my conversations peppered with spontaneous witticisms? Why donít my friends demonstrate heartfelt concern for my well-being when I have problems?Ö I gotta get my life some writers.

On the surprising similarities between principles and the New Year sales

Calvin: I donít know which is worse: that everyone has his price, or that the price is always so low.

On why we canít gift wrap people

Hobbes: The best presents donít come in boxes.

On why the Tea Party movement, like charity, begins at home

Calvin: Somewhere in Communist Russia Iíll bet thereís a little boy who has never known anything but censorship and oppression. But maybe heís heard of America, and he dreams of living in this land of freedom and opportunity! Someday, Iíd like to meet that little boyÖ and tell him the awful TRUTH!

Calvinís Dad: Calvin, be quiet and eat the stupid lima beans.

On why history is not so much written by the victors, as rewritten by losers

Calvin: History is the fiction we invent to persuade ourselves that events are knowable and that life has order and direction. Thatís why events are always reinterpreted when values change. We need new versions of history to allow for our current prejudices.

On why menís definition of love hardly varies between six and 60

Calvin: If mom and dad cared about me at all, theyíd buy me some infra-red night time vision goggles.

On the unexpected correlation between condiments and contentment

Calvin: If you canít control your peanut butter, you canít expect to control your life.

On why Ďedutainmentí is offensive to the human spirit and the English language

Calvin: Nothing spoils fun like finding out it builds character.

On the truth, again

Calvin: Things are never quite as scary when youíve got a best friend.
