A Trip to Timmie's and Au Revoir!

Right... before Jerry and Ben leave, we have to make a trip to a true Canadian Icon (even though it's now owned by Wendy's)... a Tim Horton's!!

Mama had us go through the drive-through... probably a good idea... Can you imagine three little bears turned loose in a Timmie's? "Let's see," mused Jerry, "I'll have a dozen honey dip donuts and a maple dip, just to try it. And maybe a sprinkle donut for the flight home..."

"Hey!" protested Ben, "I want something too... move over... "I'll have a dozen honey dip donuts as well and maybe a Boston Creme and...."

Ooohhh... getting closer...

Eh? One tiny bag???

What? ONE honey dip donut???

"This is a joke, right?" "Where are the rest???" "We're hungry!" "What do you mean, 'budget cuts'??" "How can three of us eat one donut???"

Uh... right... three pieces... oh so satisfying.

OK... but are they all equal sizes?? "Me thinks, my piece is smaller," grumbled Jerry.

Bear conference... should we weigh the pieces?

"Maybe we could have a strike, and demand at least 2 more donuts?"

I don't know... "Hey!!!" squeaked Jerry... "there's a piece missing!!!"

Yup... there's a piece missing... and since we both saw Jerry's paws the entire time...

We now know the true culprit behind the disappearing treats!!

But that doesn't help us with the two remaining pieces... And if we dither too long... Mama might steal another piece. But... that's OK... I can always get more Timmies here... so I let Jerry and Ben have their pieces!

Cause... when we got home... it was time to say goodbye...

It was so great having Jerry & Ben here!! "Thanks for having us, Sandy! We had a wonderful time... even if the weather was too rainy for camping... and Winterpeg was too cold to see much..."

Group bear hug. Bye guys!!!

    2. Ben likes to be bare-pawed in the summer--the cool grass feels so nice. Jerry works more in the garden, so he prefers to wear shoes to keep his paws clean.

  2. Make sure you buckle up!

    Did the cashier see you at the pick-up window?

    Have a safe trip Jerry and Ben!

  3. Papa: Thanks for hosting Jerry and Ben! They got to do so many fun things and see where Sandy lives. Now, to start a stuffy petition to get a Tim Horton's in our town!

    1. Uh... not that I'm aware of. The Canada Geese have been threatening strike action/lockout for the last week so not sure they are reliable at the moment. Sigh...
