My Walk Downtown

It helps to have lived in God's Country, a/k/a Alberta, in the True North Strong and Free, Her Majesty's Dominion of Canada! I just walked downtown, for a bit of exercise. It's +9F/-13C outside right now, but I was dressed for it! In fact, I'm might have been a bit overdressed!

Let's see. I had on two pairs of socks, one cotton and one merino wool inside my boots. As a first layer, I had on US Government Issue thermal long johns. Over those I wore a pair of Dickies flannel lined blue denims, a regular long sleeve shirt, a heavy flannel shirt, and a lined plaid jacket with a built in hood. On my hands were a pair of Edmonton Eskimos stretchy mitts, covered by a pair of knit jersey gloves. On my head, under the hood, I had my Edmonton Oilers tuque, pulled down well over my ears. So I was quite comfortable.

Most of the walkways had been shoveled, but since we only had about two or three inches of snow, walking was easy. It was a nice bit of exercise. I think my doctors would be proud of me!

Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
