    Canadian Rockies
    The Golden Poppies Are Blooming
    Around The Banks of Lake Louise

    But.....I don't think that is a photo of Lake Louise. I'll guess Moraine Lake, Banff National Park?

    You're in the right Country, but nowhere near Banff NP.

    You are looking at Spirit Island in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. Spirit Island is just a small spit of land located on Maligne lake. It takes about a 30-45 minute boat ride to get there and is in a very remote part of the lake, only accesible by boat. Here's a pic I took during our visit there, the date stamp will tell you when. Water was a little low.

    For grins I'm attaching a pic of a picnic stop we made just after taking the boat ride. My wife was scared to death of these things, they were overly friendly, having been fed by untold numbers of vacationers before. They did look a bit intimidating.

    We left that area and found a great spot just down the road. If you have never travelled on the Icefields Parkway, going from Banff/Lake Louise to Jasper, you are missing out on a serious treat of scenery, crispy fresh air and incredible surroundings. Your place to call home in Jasper would be Alpine Cabins in Jasper...PERFECT !!!

    Alpine Cabins, Jasper, Alberta, Canada, you won't find better accomodations for a reasonable price as a base for your visit.

    Looks like a fabulous trip!...Just one thing..... The pretty lady....your wife?, Was perfectly correct in being scared of those goats!

    Those critters look real cute right up until they they knock your as* for a loop! Just for kicks or maybe to eat the roll of paper towels! Looks can be deceiving. They're an ornery and mean spirited bunch.......Smart gal you got there!...Listen to her!
    Looks like you had a great time!

    NICE!

    Those goats are hilarious, they're obviously trying to get a sandwich, mother nature can be such bums. There's a possum that lives in the woods behind us, and I gave him some leftover bologne one day, and now I can't get rid of him.

    Sometimes you come across a sentence that you are pretty sure has never been written before. This might qualify.

    And if you don't give them the food, they'll just steal it!

    Showboat!... You just gave me a great idea for a thread to kill the pain of no football!.......Might liven things up!.....
    When I was a kid we had this game. Before the internet we had to use our imaginations! It was called...."Say a sentence that has never been said."
    Example; "Does your mother make good mashed potato popcicles?"

    Come on Boys!.....Whadda ya got?
    Oh, I forgot......It has to be Something Funny!
    Maybe, sports related?

    Great idea, great game. Yes, I remember pre-internet times and imaginations fondly. Two caveats to the game, from what I remember and because of the internet. It is not within the rules to create a sentence which just incorporates someone's name...for instance... "thisistheshow was the greatest QB of all time". Never been said, but no kidding... also, the internet actually does allow one to search for sentences. Although, I do not profess to being an expert on how to do the most exhaustive searches.

    All depends on the poor monkey being in the 4 days of darkness with Rodgers.......
