Gee, I wish I could, but if I take Sena out of the US, our government in all of it's infinite wisdom, won't allow me to bring her back into the country. It is illegal to import non-human primates except to torture them for research purposes.

And there is NO WAY we could endure winters up there. The Northwestern gloom chases us south every October. My daughter knows that when she takes my MH keys away she will have to drive us south and then fly back to the rain and fog.

I hear geese can be trained to pull weeds and they head south for the winter, too.

Tourists w/$. Or? Homing pigeons?

Canada won't let you bring a pet monkey in, either...

Can I Bring or Import a Monkey (Primate) to Canada?

But we went to hill country for two weeks and rode cycles then to Russleville Ark then to branson and now in Mn. We have had five major more than 6 inch snows in last two weeks. Weather lady said it will be 70 this weekend but it is snowing again right now.

What I am is one P O ed snowbird cuz the snow did not leave....

We've lived in Florida for 36 years and traveled north during the summer for the last 15 of them. We call ourselves 'sunbirds' - we flee the hot summer sun.

Heading to Maine this summer...

I am not sure what you would call a Reverse Snowbird, maybe a BirdSnow.

However, having lived in the north for a significant amount of my life, I would much rather be called a Snowbird versus a FruitFly.

I mean no disrespect or offense to those living in the Southeast and Florida, this is all in jest!

Truthfully, I have stayed in various places all over the North American continent and now call Anchorage Alaska HOME but it is only a place where I collect my mail and vote.

For me I chase the good weather. If I am too hot I go north until I feel comfortable. If I am too cold I go south until it's warm enough to wear shorts. I gave up long pants when I retired back in 2009. I wore long pants everyday for 46 years and decided that it was shorts or bathing suits ONLY from that day forward.

You can call me whatever but just don't call me late for lunch. I also gave up dinner but not Happy Hour!

So nice to see that Canuck lawmakers are as clueless as the US variety. For grins I clicked on the link to see what the requirements would be. the page that popped up said

"Apologies, but the page you requested could not be found. Perhaps searching will help".

Oh well, your weeds will have to find someone else to pull them.
