Until the future is so bright that we won't need shades .....
What a lovely mild morning in the woods! Last nights drizzle transformed the snow in my front yard into a lovely slick sheen of ice, so it was great to be able to stretch our legs in the soft snow still on the trails!
I couldn't go out and about this time of year without my tinted trifocals! For anyone who does not need prescription shades, this morning I stumbled on a very sweet fundraiser for the animals.
Two very clever students at St Francis Xavier University have created custom St FX sunglasses for a project. Even better, they will be going on sale soon and they are only asking the very modest sum of ten dollars for a pair.
Best of all .... all proceeds will be going to the Antigonish SPCA! How cool is that?
A little birdie did tell me that supply is limited ... so anyone looking to help out the Antigonish SPCA and have a chance to sport such cool shades should act fast!
What time is it? It is always time to salute clever new ideas to help the animals. Until the future is so bright that we won't need shades ... every creative idea like this does double duty by advertising animal rescue while lending a helping hand!
And that is how I see it on Wednesday, January 18th .... the SIXTY - THIRD day since the dismissed shelter manager and the disbanded board created the renegade shelter.
