Lots of people have been asking me how the chicken has been getting along. Well, to be honest, nobody has but I know one or two have been thinking it...
For those who don’t know what is going on, you can read about it here. My father is a retired Chiropractor who recently had a patient who owned a chicken that got injured. My Dad did an adjustment and put the Chickens spine back in alignment. Well the Chicken is doing great and is one of the best layin’ hens on the farm.
A little bit more to the story. I guess the chicken story is all the talk at the local farmer water coolers and word about the "miracle recovery" has spread around the Ottawa Valley so much the farmer got a call from the president of the local farmers association to get more info. I guess that's a big deal...
We live right downtown Toronto in a small condo building on the 5th floor. Living downtown is great as I can bike to work, visit several parks in my neighborhood with my kids and best of all, my boat is only a 10 minute bike ride away parked at Harbourfront Canoe & Kayak Centre.
For the most part, our life is fairly quiet.
That all changed yesterday when there was quite a bit of excitement in one of the shops on the main level of our building. Over the past 2 weeks the local news station (CP24) has reporting that King West Optical has been selling fake Oakley’s. Our trusty local reporter Silverman (who has been fighting for the common man forever) went to confront the store owner again about his business practices and things went a little crazy. After the owner freaked out and hit Silverman, he slammed the door and locked himself in refusing to come out.
The police came and he yelled at them so they called in the ATF (riot police) to break it up.
We were even more excited because Cheryl was walking the kids home from school and saw Silverman knocking on the shop door and thought she better get out of the way as there probably would be trouble.
Some people are scared the roving gangs but you really need to be scared of the downtown opticians!
You can read more about the whole story and even see some great video on CP24.
