Proudly braving the cold, head held high, goggles in place

Janosch usually arrives in a classy, thigh-length, gray, wool coat. I think that he usually wears a scarf too. Yesterday, however, he arrived at my house wearing a bright bright bright yellow jacket with goggles. Built-in goggles.

Needless to say, I had to try it on, and while I may have poked fun of Janosch a bit for owning such a jacket, I must admit that my inner Canadian longs for such a jacket. When I think back on those -40 C days living at Hogs Back, I think a jacket like this would have been pretty rockin. So bring it on Canada, while I might not have the tools necessary to brave your frigid temps, I at least know what they are now.

HAHAHAHAH you look like some sort of exotic bug under a microscope. Is that what an inner Canadian looks like? I lke to think that my inner self is a hot Argentine, lodged in an increasingly-pudgy Canadian prairie peasant's body.

You are looking more like the toothbrush cover each day!

Does anyone have eyes set far enough apart to need goggles like that?

Ooooh my my my. Words cannot express the joy in my heart upon seeing this picture. You DO look an exotic bug under intense close-up! Well said, Maria. And may I also say, I am very jealous of the Christmas visit you two will be sharing. I do miss the lovely Tubingen, and the lovely Claire.
