Duke enjoys a cool Montreal morning sitting in the sun at the front door. No doubt he smells the remnants of skunk odor still present in the foliage in the front yard after he was "skunked" on a beautiful summer evening last month when all the windows were open. Had there been an emergency slide available that night, Kish would have used it to leave the house. The smell of skunk leads Kish to have flashbacks of a childhood in Arizona bathing two Great Danes with tomato juice on hot summer days. For the record, tomato juice does not work and Kish is now thinking her parents sent her outside to keep her busy for hours on end with large cans of tomato juice and a hose. After all, this was pre-computer, Facebook, cable tv, DVR, CDs, iPod, DVD, iPad, texting and all those time-sucking activities occupying kids today.

I found a good remedy for skunk other than tomato juice. Kish has never been able to enjoy a Bloody Mary thanks to her childhood Great Danes.
Danielle celebrated her school's "Prom" this weekend. This stressful beautiful event is often referred to as "Grad"...

About this blog...
Welcome to the Pisani Family Canadian Adventure blog. We moved to Montreal in October 2008 -- just as the financial crisis hit the fan in Canada. We like to think of ourselves as breath of fresh air in Canada rather than being linked by time to the turbulent economy. After ten years in Naperville, Illinois, and many other places before that, this blog communicates what's up with the fam and the crazy dog Duke Urlacher (now known as Duke Gretzky), things we're learning in Canada and the differences between the two countries, shared by a very long border. So close, yet so far away in many ways. We try to add humor to our blog entries, because, well, we like to laugh. We like jokes, funny You Tube videos and good commercials. We apologize for some of the language...we sometimes let "bad" words fly. However, we're finding that cuss words in French, or with a French accent, sound so much better.
