THINGS CHANGE

I get the weekend Globe & Mail and Toronto Star every Saturday. It’s left by the road at  the bottom of our driveway. They’re bulky. Lots to read. I must finish reading them before the next batch of Saturday papers arrive, or I’ll never catch up.


Both newspapers are packed with long articles, with most well worth reading. What I found lately are shorter pieces on the same topics written by ‘experts’ to augment what the article has told us.


Ok, so what? So, I can’t make head or tail of what they’re talking about. They may be experts in their field, but they leave readers like me way out in left field.


Author’s comment: Have you ever watched something on television and find even here you’re left wondering what the heck’s going on? A few nights ago CBC TV news had a wrap-up about a guy specializing in rescuing cats stuck up in the trees.


This little creature was so high even those from the local fire station couldn’t reach it. Along comes our expert as the CBC camera crew pan up, way up to show the cat staring down at everyone below.


It cuts to our guy, equipment over his shoulder. He smiles at the camera, grabs a thick rope already hanging down from the tree, and begins cranking himself up until he disappears out of frame.


Grabs the rope and begins cranking himself upward? How in hell’s name did he get the rope up there in the first place? Come on guys, don’t leave us in suspence…
