Like a magnet…

… I was drawn to the town of Moose Jaw in Canada’s Saskatchewan province. How could anyone not be?!? Apparently the name comes from the First Nations people who called the nearby waterway “moosichappishannissippi” (easy for me to say!), which means “the creek that bends like a moose’s jaw.” Anyway, Moose Jaw, which bills itself as The Friendly City, is a charming big-little town of about 35,000, with a colorful past that includes it “possibly” being the center of Al Capone’s Canadian bootlegging operations during prohibition. Whether true or not, there’s no denying its claim to being friendly, and I could not have found a better place to celebrate my 68th birthday!
