Duck! Duck! Goose!

Since Dave and Bob were already going to head to Canada as part of Dave' trek across the United States, NOT figured he'd go along for a bit, even though he had left his passport at home. Since he had been to Canada with Kat and Bob skiing and Juj going to strip clubs, the country held special memories for him

Don't Fall In!

First stop would be Rochester, NY and a visit to Lake Ontario with Kat's law school buddy Lise Hamilton. NOT was a bit surprised to find that despite being at water level, he was 250 feet above sea level. Weird.

I'm Fall(s)ing!

From there it was only a short trip to Niagara Falls. All that falling water made NOT (and Bob) thirsty, which is why Bob's holding the big water for both of them.

I'm Fall(s)ing!

NOT likes to think of himself as a daredevil, so he looked for a barrel. Luckily there were none to be found. And being a duck of small stature, he risked going over and getting lost, without a barrel. Luckily he found an observation post to keep himself safe.

Toronto Education!

On to Ontario! To check in with the Canadian Education System, they stopped by the University of Toronto.

It's soooooo big!

As it has already been noted, NOT is a duck of small stature, so he can intimidate easily. The phallic towers on the campus did NOT help him feel better. So he went and hid in one of the cannons, possibly contemplating a run back over the border again.

He Shoots! He Flies!

One with Art!

NOT decided to stay though, when he saw the triangles all over the quad in a modern sculpture, and then almost got a chance to meet the ebony squirrel, U of Toronto's (evil?) answer to Tufts' albino squirrel.

Don't Touch It, It's Evil!


However, when cars are crashing out of buildings, as in the City TV display crashing out of the Daveley (!) building in Toronto, it's time to move on!
