|Stopped by Steve's
yesterday and picked up some tbs that we made on the
weekend. The chemwalls moving in were pointing out to us the
places that need more gifting, giving a donut hole effect
around Steve's territory. Tom reported from Oakville, 2
cities over, he could see chem soup over my territory,
Mississauga, which is in between where they are. I told
Steve to keep an eye on it while I gifted on my way home. It
was around 11:30 and my kids would be home for lunch at noon
so I wanted to get as much done as possible.
I watched for towers to see which ones needed gifting. The
ones I could see looked fine. There must be some hidden ones
because I've had to rely on my left hand buzzing to indicate
where to place the tbs, more proof to me that gridding is
the best way to go.
First one I planted was near the beginning of a highway. The
ground was newly frozen from the last 2 days of frost so I
expected some resistance while digging. Happily there was
none, it just looks frozen. Perhaps that's due to all the
rain and warmer than normal temperatures we've been getting
since the Mega cb hit Lake Ontario November 1st.
I felt drawn to a city park with a creek running between it
and emptying into Lake Ontario. I'd grown up around there
and have fond memories of my youth in this park. I parked
near the creek and loaded my pockets with tbs. Next one went
into the partially frozen creek. Only the edges weren't
frozen, a thin layer of ice on top. No confirmations yet but
it felt right.
Started walking south towards the lake on a path when I
noticed (clue 1) a white haired man in a (clue 2)
lighter-than-the-weather-calls-for beige jacket walking down
the center of the parking lot past me. He was walking
quickly, like a man on a mission with somewhere to go, and
(clue 3) looking at me from the corner of his eyes. I
stopped and watched to see what he was up to. Of the 10 cars
or so in the parking lot, he chooses to walk (clue 4) beside
MY car to get to the path. My jaw dropped as I watched
incredibly as this guy stops mid step and (clue 5) checks
out what's on the front seat of my car! He starts walking
and steps back again to make sure he saw what he saw. Yes
Mr. Spy-Who-Gave-Himself-Away, those are tbs and an EP.
So, hands on my hips by now, I'm just standing around
waiting to see what he's up to. His face drops when he sees
me looking at him and scoots away then stops about 10 feet
from my car. He's doing this dance, walking away, coming
back, an animated pacing thing within 2 square feet of
ground as he's fighting to stay put. I'm blasting and he
seems to be saying to himself "what do I do? what do I do?".
Haha. He thinks he's blending in by standing around smoking
a cigarette forgetting that just a moment ago he was looking
like he was heading somewhere important.
In retrospect, I wish I would have confronted him. Next
time. Instead, I was annoyed so I got in my car and went to
the other end of the parking lot closer to the lake. He's
still standing in the same spot I left him, trying to
maintain his blending in cover. I blast him and he starts
moving along in different directions. I don't want to let go
until I see where he's going to.
Another car pulls up behind mine. I can see the driver
staring at me (clue) through my rearview mirror. Another
white haired older guy. I blast him for good measure and
immediately his head falls to the side as if he fell asleep.
Huh? A few more cars pull into the lot. As they go by the
guys head straightens out as I look to see who's arriving.
Perhaps that was a plan to distract me from the original
guy. When I looked for the first guy he was gone. As soon as
I blast the guy behind me again his head falls over again
like he's passed out. A few more times of blasting and
stopping proves to me my blasting is having an effect on
Mr. Spy-Who-Gave-Himself-Away comes back in a car this time
and parks beside Mr. Sleeping-On-The-Job. Immediately I
blast him. I couldn't see his face, but was amused by a
rather large unleashed dog who starts barking and growling
while running to his car. He turned around and left in a
Thinking my fun time with them was over I got out to get on
with gifting. That's when I notice 2 guys in a blue car
staring at me as I walked past. I blast, the older one
turned away quickly, the other younger guy continues to
stare with a scowl on his face. I wasn't sure about them at
this point, so continued on my merry way throwing tbs in the
water when I felt no one was watching me.
A woman walking her dog on the beach while talking on a cell
phone approached me. I got this idea in my head that it was
a photo phone and any second she was going to position
herself with the camera facing me. She didn't let me down.
Of course I smiled and waved for the camera
She couldn't see me but I found it funny how fast she and
her dog left when I blasted them both.
I picked up some rocks to fake out any spies who may still
be in the parking lot. I only threw them in the creek when I
was sure I was being watched, like when another old guy
approached me on the dock that runs along side the creek and
out the lake a bit. I didn't blast until I made sure he saw
me throwing a rock into the creek.
The blue car was now in a different position across 2
parking spots. I don't think they knew I was coming as I
could hear them talking and definitely heard the word
"implant". It went quiet for a second then their voices got
louder making sure I could hear of how they were cleaning
their car and washing windows. Uh huh.
I heard a cracking noise and turned to see a flock of
Canadian Geese land on the creek, breaking the top layer of
ice in the spot where I threw the first tb. How's that for
the confirmation I'd been looking for?
Getting back into my car I see the guy behind me is still
sleeping. Gee, I hope I didn't kill him.
I'm giving clues and hints here on what alerted me because
obviously these guys are not well trained in the art of
surveillance and blending in. Guess budget cutbacks are
effecting their department too. And what's with sending
older white haired guys to follow me? Is it some kind of NSA
Seeing all those old guys reminded me of the Royal Canadian
Legion just down the street. So I gifted that too.
Went back to the North side of the park as I knew there was
a dam along the creek and felt it needed gifting. Parked my
car, a grey haired jogger runs past me. I guess he hasn't
earned the white hair prestige yet. I hear a rumble and look
up into the sky to see a white helicopter. Cool. Then these
2 guys who looked like drug addicts appear out of no where
with fishing rods. Yeah, good plan. Fishing on a December
afternoon. Not obvious at all.
By this time I was fed up with their silly attempts to
intimidate me and sent out a blast that I was hoping would
reach a mile. It got quiet after that and I gifted in peace.
I came to the dam and was surprised how much it had changed
in 20 years. Go figure. The water level was down about 5-10
feet from it's previous glory. The original dam was knocked
down with the concrete strewn about and newer lower one
built. I recalled my carefree youth spent diving from the
top of the dam and swimming in the water below. Snapping
turtles used to show up from time to time. I was saddened to
think the youth of today would never get the chance to
experience all that.
I studied the water flow over the dam and wasn't surprised
to see there were no fish. I felt compelled to look because
of seeing those guys fishing earlier.
I gifted some more up the nature trail and turned around
when my pockets were empty. The sky was a clear bright blue
along the path I had gifted. I found one more spot I felt
needed a gift and used the emergency one from my purse. A
few times I felt light headed and off balance but I was too
happy to give it any thought.
I had an appointment at 1:30 that would take a half hour to
get to and here it was 12:45. I'd already abandoned my kids
to their own devices during their lunch hour as I just felt
this was too important. In case your wondering, the kids
survived. =) I had 15 minutes left to gift that I figured I
would do on my way there.
As I was about to pass the west entrance to the park on the
other side of the creek I felt compelled to gift there.
Maybe it was because they had it chained off. I left my car
and gifted as I hiked some, forgetting to bring a shovel or
spade. Found some spots to gift anyway but still drawn to
the creek. A dove was waiting for me to show me where to
gift there. I found a really great spot because of that dove
but I won't mention where.
Heading back to the car I see this old guy behind me,
talking on the phone and he stops at the place I just
gifted. Won't they ever give up? It's 1:15 now, I'm late and
considering canceling my appointment because the more they
bug me the more I resolve to get rid of them permanently off
I'm glad I decided to stop for the day though. Kim's sister
is a Reflexologist in training and needed some feet to
practice on. I gifted the highway out the window on the way.
By the time I got there my whole body was stiff. After that
treatment I felt great!
I had a long well rested sleep last night and I'm ready to
go out and gift again. Better not let me catch you following
me this time because I won't back down and you'll just
encourage me to go out again tomorrow.
