Over the last 9 months of blogging, I have written about famous people, places, events and burning issues of the day. However, the most emails I have received was when I made the mistake of publishing a picture of a guinea pig and calling it a hamster. I'm sorry. It will never happen again. Yesterday, I published a picture of the real Pipsqueak the hamster. Let's move on folks.

Today is sister Sally's birthday. Sally, Happy Birthday. Sally lives in Devon, England and recently climbed Kilimanjaro. I was chatting to her a week ago and she said that she liked the blog but that the jokes were pathetic. I took this a little hard. So, on my runs at the three schools this week, I've been asking the grade 2,3 and 4's what they thought of Dr. Randolph Randolph's book of animal jokes. The overwhelming consensus is fantastic. So Sally I'm sorry if the humour isn't sophisticated enough for you. Maybe you should stick to The Office or Fawlty Towers.

This morning, on the advice of Dr Greg (AKA Dr Pain), I taped my left ankle and headed to Rosedale school. This is a Kindergarten to grade 9 school with 300 students. During the day, I was running with a group of grade 2 and 3's and we were comparing scars, as you do. One grade 3 boy, Johnny, told us about an accident his dad had. Apparently he was on his bike waiting at a stop sign when an ambulance hit him. As Johnny said "It was sad that he was hit but lucky that it was an ambulance!" I guess.
