Well if you’re a squirrel you might. We gorillas keep our nuts under careful scrutiny, thank you very much.

Thanks for the cool, very fun link!! I could spend all
day making posters!

BTW, the company that has a banner on that site, “successories.com” makes actual framed prints
with your own captions. I made one with the NY skyline and an E.B. White quote that I like, but I think you can be as “nutty” as you want :)
(oh, they don’t do custom photos, you gotta pick
one of theirs, but they have a pretty good selection)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
