Meet Bob and Doug...
Friday, June 22, 2012
My new friends.
I am a huge Nutcracker fan. I collect them in moderation and think they are the BEST Christmas decorations ever.
I think I fell in love with them as a child when my dad first took me to see the Nutcracker Ballet. He continued to take me to them until I was about 19 or so.
Well today I was shopping at the grocery store and while looking at all the 'Canada Day' decor I spot them.
Can you believe how cute they are???
A Canadian Mountie and a Governor General Foot Guard!!! I am so thrilled to have found them!
I named them Bob and Doug after two fictional Canadian characters from a Canadian show, SCTV. SCTV was like the SNL of Canada a gazillion years ago. One of it's sketches was called Great White North, which later became a TV show and an album. They were these two goofy beer drinking, tuque wearing stereotypical 'Canadians'.
Anyway, they are 'All Canadian' so I figured they suited my new friends. So Doug is the Mountie and Bob is the Foot Guard.
Yes, I know...I am weird. But hey, what can I say!?
