We Love Tim Hortons!

Some countries have their Krispy Kremes and EVERYONE has Starbucks, but here in Canada we have our Tim Hortons. What is Tim Hortons you ask? Its our favorite Doughnut spot. With several dozen styles of signature donuts, muffins, bagels and other baked goodies its a place where little kids press their faces against the glass display (while us adults would LOVE to but know better) Its our own Canadian coffee spot where its always clean, friendly and fast. And its open late - an anomaly in a small town like ours.

So the other night after helping my Mr. at school he offered to take me out and I leapt at the chance. Donuts AND a Date? Woo Hoo!

So we are sitting at a small window on the side of the building which gives us a view of the drive through window, when Mr's eyes seem to wander from mine. Well, knowing he'd never look at another woman - truly - I asked him what it was that was taking his attention from me. He replied, in a bemused tone "A horse is in the drive-thru" So, ok, I KNOW its been a 12 hour day for him but surely I've not entirely caused him to hallucinate? So I lean over to see...

Yep, thats definately a horse at the drive-thru. How sweet! Of COURSE now I want to take a photo, and since Mr. WAS the one to buy me my camera 2 yrs ago and knows it lives in my purse and on my eye... he 'scuzes me to snap away.

See? I got a full shot!

So, if this is not fun enough, I wait till the gal is finished ordering and starts walking toward me. I ask her if I'm able to catch a few shots and she's fine with this. And then she tells me the order she placed was for HER HORSE!

Really, her horse is fond of the bagels - I'm sure the grain one, right?


Good to the last crumb!

And yes, I did wind up tracking her down and I've put the local tv station in touch with her. Thanks for allowing me to feature you, Sasha - and your darling horse!
