TORONTO REPORTBACK: Apparently a person or person(s) unknown did some re-decorating of an east end nazi clubhouse right before Paul Fromm (
Canada’s worst-dressed nazi, 2nd photo) tried to hold a lil’ racist meeting there. He’s very upset that he & maybe a dozen other white-haired bigots were unable to get into their own venue b/c the locks were not functioning, forcing them to stand outside, freezing, for the better part of an hour. After standing around, shivering and muttering to themselves got old, they dejectedly dispersed, returning to whatever rocks they had crawled out from under.
Happy 2nd birthday my little songbird. You’ve put me through absolute hell these past two years, but you’ve also taught me so much that I probably wouldn’t have learned without you. You taught me patience, and that it’s okay to take things slow. I don’t know where I’d be without you. You’ve helped me get to the next tier in my dog goals and I’m so grateful for that, I know I still lose my patience with you sometimes and I’m sorry, and thank you for never giving up on me. Through rain, snow, and hail I’ll always be by your side as you’ll be by mine, you’ll be the sun on my cloudy days.
You have no idea how much I love you and how much you’ve helped me. I love you so much, here’s to many more years.
