  1. Discovered a new word – at least to me. In Janet Evanovich’s “The Pursuit” (I can really recommend her books, funny and thrilling.) The word is “peripatetic” and it means constantly traveling and rarely around. 😊

    1. Wow, it is a Canadian show on Netflix. Thank you for telling me this. I’ve never watched a Canadian TV show before, unless any of the popular TV shows are made in Canadian but I mistook for U.S. productions. The name is very funny and it seems an interesting plot. LOL.

      1. It’s a really beautiful and wholesome show. Canadian shows tend not to get shown in the US unfortunately. You have to look to find them

        1. Wow, that’s fascinating. I heard a lot about differences between British and American, but I haven’t heard much about the differences between Canadian and American. I think it would be really interesting. LOL.
