What were they thinking?
Who chooses the statues that we see outside? A good question, right? Do they have a committee? An entire government department? Probably both. I just don't understand some of it. Give me a statue of Samuel de Champlain and I understand that. I'm such a progressive woman - lol.
I got out for a much needed run today and multi-tasked because I needed to go to the Museum of History (formerly known as Civilization - thanks Stevie!) to pick something up so it was a good excuse to get out for some long overdue lunch exercise. On my journey I crossed the Portage Bridge over to Gatineau (formerly known as Hull - thanks ????) and they have these three statues on the path. What?!? Why?!? A headless person? What the heck? Exchangeable body parts? Ideas anyone?
It was a lovely day for a run but I was kind of hoping for a bit of rain to splash in. It looks like tornado weather outside the window right now so I'm sure the rain will happen when I go to catch the bus because that's life isn't it.
I was a little worries about crossing the Alexandria Bridge on my way back to the office because no vehicles are allowed on the wooden part but I'm a running machine....jalopy....but a machine all the same. Does that count?
Finished up my adventure with a touch of Canada. Brought back pretty leaves for my co-workers.
