“So, have you seen Doug Black lately Linda? What’s he up to?”
Why is it any time I write about something in this god forsaken county I have to maneuver some sort of trail?
These Carleton Place equestrians were on the lookout too! They were going to head him off at the pass!
Local artist Jade Armstrong had not seen him either.
Nobaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaady’s seen him Sparkle the sheep said.
I am lost for words said the tarot card reader as she threw her hands up into the air.
The Canadian Gazette reporters had not seen him either.
Allie Winter from the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market was dishing out her frosty fresh treats– but Doug had not been by.
Ken Strangway from the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market was flipping his delicious food, but Doug had not been by to sample yet.
I think he bought a ticket for the quilt raffle said Jennifer Fenwick irwin from the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum. Have you bought yours? You can buy them at the Museum!
I finally caught up to him and the rumour is that– no one can recognize him these days as he has been working out.
Author’s note—I have seen Doug many times but I do not recognize him. People that know me know that I have an issue with names and faces etc. after the stroke I had. That is just the way it is.That is one of the reason why I write-I am afraid to forget. Saturday Doug said,”Why don’t you ever say hello to me?” I explained why. So now after doing this blog I won’t look like such a putz LOL– or maybe it is because he has been working out.LOL
