Andy and Sam had a jam session going a while ago.
They actually kept a good beat. I'm pretty sure our next door neighbor heard the ruckus too, because the window is open in that room, and when she's going down her stairs and I happen to be looking out the window, we can plainly see each other, and we wave!
I also wanted to share this picture that I took last week. (Apparently Sam really likes this shirt, Auntie Claire, because it seems like he's wearing it in just about every picture I've posted on here!)
This is in a hotel parking lot, and you plug your car into it during the winter. Yes, it gets so cold here that you must have an engine block heater installed on your car, and the plug comes out of the front grill. Initially I thought these things were everywhere, but I haven't seen them in the grocery store or mall parking lots, so apparently it's only needed if your car will be parked for maybe 3+ hours. Certainly you plug your car in at home once you're in for the evening. Someone that's originally from Nova Scotia was trying to tell me that the cold and snow here wasn't that bad because it was a dry cold. Riiiiiiiiiight! South Texas and New Orleans being my only comparisons, I'm not sure I'll appreciate the wet vs. dry MINUS 40 temperatures (and I don't need to differentiate between F or C because they're EQUAL at this point), but we'll see! :o)
We're also getting ready for Nana (my mom) to come visit. I'll pick her up in Calgary tonight. I'm off to put some sheets on the guest bed!
