Are you sure you don‘t have Red Rose? Or any kind of tea? I‘ve been talking for a while. Yeah, I‘ll take an Earl Grey. Him and the Burger Baron, they‘re the only nobility I recognize, ha.

LeahBergen Good old Red Rose tea! It was the tea of choice in my family when I was little. 1mo
ravenlee We love Red Rose in my family. I order it every few months because we can‘t find the decaf in stores. My kiddo is something of a Red Rose junkie! 1mo
rabbitprincess My parents still drink it exclusively! I tend to buy whatever black tea strikes my fancy from the local British grocery store. 1mo

Lindy @TheLudicReader Ha! My sister who lives in the Yukon is a King Cole fan. 1mo
Lindy @LeahBergen @ravenlee @rabbitprincess I was thinking Red Rose is iconic enough that I should add this reference as a supplement to my Tim Hortons literary quotes. 1mo

I wouldn‘t have known about a mural painted by an Indigenous artist in Edmonton‘s IKEA store if I hadn‘t read about it in one of Chelsea Vowel‘s short stories. Image above from the internet. It was painted by Lance Cardinal.

kspenmoll It‘s beautiful! 1mo
Lindy @kspenmoll Perhaps I will make a special trip to IKEA just to see it. 😊 1mo

Bison? Yeah, I know that‘s the right word, but you understand me when I say buffalo, don‘t you? I mean, it‘s a little rich to tell neechies how to call an animal your folks only met a 100 years ago or something. And that you genocided so you could build McMansions on all our lakes. Do you speak Michif? Cree? Nakota? How about Saulteaux? Know how to say buffalo in any of those languages? No? Okay then. I get to say bison or buffalo all I want.

June‘s just beginning, but oh, how us prairie folk unfurl like rosebuds after a long winter. Spring in Edmonton is temperamental, so you‘ve got to appreciate it when you can—you know how it is.

Lindy @Cinfhen Thanks, Cindy! 1mo

Angelique gazed out at the herd and imagined she was one of those birds, perched between dark horns, eating insects from the grass. Groups of them startled and rose above the shaggy backs before settling back down. She wondered how their babies found them, how they knew to join their kin.

Lindy It‘s serendipitous that I recently read a book that explains how cowbird youngsters, and other offspring of birds who lay their eggs in other birds‘ nests, learn how to act like their own species: 1mo
