Knock Out

A knock-out win gives Canada a new leader, Justin Trudeau...







Just as Richard Nixon predicted!

You may remember our new leader's father, himself a former leader of our nation...



And our new leader's mother, shown here in her Studio 54 days....



Off you go to work now...



Note: Your garden pics post is coming soon.

  1. Congrats! Your election is over. We still have more than a year to suffer until ours.

    1. LX: And we’ll hear about every minute of yours up here.

      If you have time to watch this, our election has been widely and justifiably and hilariously mocked by foreigners.

    2. Sorry. We're sort of the loud hillbilly downstairs neighbors, with guns.

  2. A remarkable & young man - at least for European conditions. Let's hope that he sticks to his convictions and does not turn into something else over night.

    1. MAGO: Turn into something else overnight?

      He once grew facial hair and appeared to have turned into a swashbuckling D'Artagnan of The Three Muskateers.

  6. Hmmm... Very "film star".
    He reminds me of Matthew McConaughey in the first pic and Eric Bana in the third.
    Good luck with him, Mistress.

    Meanwhile, in the UK, they’re asking this question.

    1. Just look at his nose - there hasn't been that great of nose on a world leader since Caesar.

  10. A word about our new leader's mother who is not your image of apple pie and apron strings.

    She consistently made headlines throughout the nation many years ago.

    There were the rumours of her “close” relationships with politicians Fidel Castro and Ted Kennedy, TV personality Geraldo Rivera, tennis star Vitas Gerulaitis, and actors Jack Nicholson and Ryan O’Neal.

    She is especially remembered for partying with the Rolling Stones on the eve of her sixth wedding anniversary to our former leader and a subsequent fling with Stones’ guitarist Ron Wood.

    Not exactly a Norman Rockwell image but she's ours.

  11. I never found Pierre Trudeau attractive, because he wasn't. But women loved him. I love his son. And I love Margaret Trudeau, too. Oh, fuck - I love Canada, and would move there if it weren't for winter 15 months out of the year.

    1. COOKIE: Canada loves you too, Cookie. You simply must learn how to dress for the weather.

      COOKIE & JON: And don’t forget the intensely hot, humid summers. From one extreme to the other. We’ve got it all!
