Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Yes, Canadians are in Kandahar

The sure signs of our presence in Kandahar are our national obsession and our most common addiction.



















Our national obsession: hockey! The first thing to go up at the military base is a hockey rink. It is for ball hockey, too warm for ice hockey, but hockey just the same.


















With lighting, of course, so it can be played day and night.



To satisfy our addiction, Tim Hortons, our most beloved national institution.
Make mine a large double-double with 20 tim bits. I read the soldiers from other countries are joining in our love of Tim Hortons.
Makes me wonder what the local Afghanis would think if they were allowed onto the base.
