that's for sure

Years ago, when department stores were popular and one could find junk on sale in the bargain basement, Lohbado overheard a man about 60, who found clip on sunglasses on sale, 3 for the price of 1, approach a man about 70. The younger man couldn't find the checkout counter so asked: "Who do yah pay?" The older man said, "You can pay me." The younger man repeated, "I can pay you?"
The other replied, "Yeah yeah yeah yeah."

Whenever Lohbado heard the expression "a frank discussion", blunt, direct, squarely for sure he thought of this incident which mixed with sounds in a dream-like brain dance.

Take sight, sound, taste, touch and so on. Hit enter on the PBC (Push Button Console). Hit process. The console generates a representation of reality. Lohbado worked nine years for the department before he was laid off using the leverage of technical specifications. They were concerned when he began tuning into frequencies leaking through the cracks and from around the edges.

look at all the beautiful snow


The first major snowfall of the season happened in Montreal. Walking, biking, driving, it was all a bit of a challenge in the snow. The snow was also quite beautiful.
