WHAT'S THE NAME OF THIS OLD BUILDING??

P296-8

Hey Charles. You did good posting the old flood photos I sent you and now... a test for the "old" folks on here. In the second flood photo, showing the a white building half underwater, what was the name of that building and why did almost everyone in Fredericton go there up...??? until the City Fathers buried the old Regent St. Wharf (which that building is standing on) to build the new road around to the new bridge.

There will be no flood like last year in 2009!!!!

Someone email me this note -

Hey there Charles. Keep up the great work on the blog. You ARE making a difference for sure and 'making a difference' is just about the best we can do in this lifetime.

I found all these old flood photos on the Provincial archives site. Except for 2 or 3, they are all from the 1936 flood. The 2 or 3 are back in the 1800's I think.

Use them as you see fit or not at all.

Cheers from Dieppe.

QUEBECOIS DAN BUSSIERES RESCUED DOG FROM THE ICE IN THE SAINT JOHN RIVER!!!

I'm not as good as Maurice the Homeless or Dan F with these kinds of stories but I will give it a shot. < If Maurice or Dan wish to write one? Please do? >..lol

The area of the Fredericton Walking Bridge was full of people watching poor Shaka on the ice of the Saint John River.

Professionals from the Fredericton Police Force and the Firemen are at the scene trying to get the poor dog back on land.

img_0759img_1468


The guys and women were shouting - COME SHAKA!!!! COME SHAKA GIRL!!!!

The dog just ignored their calls.

img_4704


Then word got out that the dog was French!!! She was from Quebec!!!!

The Cops and Firemen quickly used their Francais they learned from the French Immersion courses.

VIIIEEENNNNSS SKAKA!!! RETOURNE ICCCIIII SHAKA!!!!

But Shaka continue to ignore the calls.

The professionals quickly called a Cop from the Moncton area.

This guy was an Acadian.

He shouted- HURRY UP BACK ICITTE SHAKA!!!!

VIENS BACK ICITTE SHAKA!!!

The poor dog glanced at the Acadian and she was really confuse.

The Chiac French didn't work.

They called a fellow Police officer from the North Shore!!!! Yves is from Neguac. He quickly arrive on the scene.

The Acadian shouted - HALE TA MARDE ICI SHAKA!!! VIENS ICI SHAKA!!!!

The poor dog quickly began moving away from the shore.

Then someone mention they saw on Charles's Blog that Dan Bussieres was un maudit Quebecois and the Legislature is just around the corner.

Dan Bussieres arrive on the scene escorted by Cities Finest. He still had his sword and uniform in tack.

With a deep Tappette Voice he shouted -

The dog's tail quickly began flying back and forth...

Shaka quickly began running towards her new Master. With tongue out she jumped on Dan Bussieres.

The Sargeant at Arms of the New Brunswick Legislature noticed it was an Mastiff!!!

Since the real Master was nowhere to be seen?

Dan bought home < at the Legislature > his new pet.

Maybe the next time Shaka hears a certain individual say en chiac- J'us un Blogger.

By then, Shaka will be well trained to handle Dan Bussieres's little problem at the New Brunswick Legislature?

Will this story have a happy ending?

But seriously, they did interview me.

The question was this - During this period of economy hardship? < Something like that >

Did it change your eating habit?

Answer- People on social assistance always eat the same way. I don't see this crisis changing our eating habits.

DOG ON THE ICE OF THE SAINT JOHN RIVER IN FREDERICTON MUST BE DRIVING THE MEMBERS OF THE FREDERICTON POLICE FORCE NUTS!!!

I noticed a Police officer sitting in his vehicle working on his computer near the green zone this afternoon.

I went and asked him the latest about the dog on the ice of the Saint John River.

He told me the dog is safe and sound.

I said- Ok....that's good.

Suddenly, a woman stopped her car in the busy traffic and jumped from the vehicle.

She quickly went to the officer and said- THERE'S A DOG ON THE ICE ON THE RIVER!!!!

The officer politely told her that the animal will be ok.

I jumped in her car and took these pictures.
