Olympic Fever at Whistler.

Even after the Whistler Olympics, the fever has not calmed down.
The sign is up and ready for business.

The ski lift takes you up to 7000 feet and brrr. it can get cold up there.
Then you have a chance to learn to be either a winner, or become a person rug
for big black bear which occasionally show up there.

This is why we have many Olympic winners here in Canada because we have the best training. lol

My son began his new found delight in snow boarding, as opposed to skiing and soccer and what a blast he had with the boys.

They have a wide assortment of restaurants and shops, with wonderful buys of quality goods.

Yup ....Whistler is the place to be.

Everyone is common up .....ya hear?

Four old retired guys are walking down a street in The Villages, Florida ..
They turn a corner and see a sign that says, 'Old Timers Bar - all drinks 10
Cents.' They look at each other, and then go in, thinking this is too good
To be true.

The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, 'Come on in
And let me pour one for you!

What'll it be, Gentlemen?'

There seemed to be a fully-stocked bar, so each of the men ask for a
Martini. In short order, the bartender serves up four iced
Martinis.....Shaken, not stirred, and says, 'That'll be 10 cents each,

The four men stare at the bartender for a moment.
Then look at each other...they can't believe their good luck.

They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis, and order another round..
Again, four excellent martinis are produced with the bartender again saying,
'That's 40 cents, please.'
They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they can
Stand.--They have each had two martinis and so far they've spent less than a

Finally one of the men says, 'How can you afford to serve martinis as good
As these for a dime a piece?'

'I'm a retired tailor from Boston ,' the bartender said.
'And I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the Lottery for $25
Million and decided to open this place.
Every drink costs a dime - wine, liquor, beer, it's all the same.'

'Wow! That's quite a story!' says one of the men.

The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but notice seven
Other people at the end of the bar who didn't have drinks in front of them,
And hadn't ordered anything the whole time they were there.

One man gestures at the seven at the end of the bar without drinks and asks
The bartender, 'What's with them?'
The bartender says, 'Oh, they're all retired old farts from Canada, waiting For happy hour when drinks are half price.'

lol even I have to laugh at this one lol
