We gots a brand new trash can for da kitchen. Take a look!

Heavy duty, heh! It has a metal fastener on the lid, so that when our buddy, Mike, pushes it over, he can't drag out the trash and spread it over the kitchen floor. Aunty Bean found this trash container for mombean. So far - so good!

Come on, Mike, we know it's you. You sure make a racket in da kitchen, then we hear mom bean running to see what you are doing. Mombean says you always have your mouth open hollerin' for food.

See, here's another one of you doing that

After all that fuss Mike, did you get enough enuff to eat? Anyway we saw mombean smiling at the trash can, do you think she's a little stressed this morning?

Traditional Water Cannon Salute

Hi all, it's Mindy, your blog reporter for today.

Let me explain the title of today's post. Even better, I will show you all a picture first.

It is traditional that the first flight of an airline to an airport be saluted by plumes of water using fire fighting vehicles. This is ceremonial and the aircraft travels on the taxiway under the arch that is created. In this case it is Globespan just arrived from Scotland, making its inaugural flight into Halifax International Airport.

The reason mombean and aunty bean were at the airport is that grandbean was flying to Glagow, Scotland to visit with her sisters and brother and she was on its first flight out of Halifax. Our beans did not know the significance of this 'salute'at the time, only knew it was something special so took some pictures.

Mombean says she took this next picture for all of the Blogosphere members that love lobsters. It seems some passengers on this WestJet flight couldn't pass up the delicious Crustaceans they saw offered for sale at the airport. So here they are packed and traveling up the conveyor and into the aircraft.

That's a lot of lobsters! You can almost taste them, right?
