And it’s a washroom. Good idea, for a variety of reasons.
But let’s give the folks who need to pause for the cause a little privacy.
Because when you’re driving by there’s a big window, if I’m not mistaken — and, you can see right inside.
So let’s put it out there on a first poll. (We have another a little later.)
•Back on the Mother’s Day weekend, Nicole Turenne shared a question with me, and I haven’t told anyone. But today I will. Nicole, the communications and marketing manager for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, said she and Corey Graham had been dating for 10 years. Nichole wondered if, maybe, one day Corey might propose marriage. A Tuesday Facebook post was pure joy: Corey Nichole are engaged! It’s been quite a few months for Corey, play-by-play man on TSN 1260 who calls Edmonton Oil King games, including the big Memorial Cup win. See, Nicole: patience is a virtue.
•And speaking of patience — did you see the line-up on the Whitemud Freeway about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday, all the backed up all the way from the Rainbow Valley bridge, all the way 91 St. eastbound? That’s what a four-car pile-up will do during rush hour. If you were one of those folks, in a hot vehicle, and no air conditioning, send us a tweet or email and let us know how you survived.
•My old buddy Ross Norton popped by for a visit Tuesday to talk Canadian Paraplegic Association, wheelchair basketball and all kinds of stuff. Ross saved the best for last, though. On his way out he asked if I would like to see his truck. Sure glad I did.
It was a green 1957 Chevy. Nice!
•The Angels Anonymous Connection is having a big fundraiser Saturday night at the Fantasyland Hotel. But, that’s all I’m going to tell you. All the details about the wonderful work Angels Anonymous does will be in the Tait on 8 column in Thursday’s Edmonton Sun.
•Big new six-year deal between the Edmonton Oilers and the Corus Entertainment. Sounds like another good poll question so let’s fire that up.
•City councilor Scott McKeen is sharing his time with Meals on Wheels Thursday and is challenging other citizens to do the same. Great cause. And Scott knows a few things about food: he wrote restaurant reviews a few years back in the Edmonton Journal. He’ll do a great job. If you want to get involved with Meals on Wheels, call 780-429-2020.
