I Heart Bowness

Kyle and I live not too far from the neighbourhood Bowness. I like Bowness. Bowness has a dodgy small town feel - with a lovely park along the river, a cool bike shop, a trendy breakfast joint, cute little houses from the 1950s, and a plethora of seedy apartment buildings with old mattresses on the balconies.

Sometimes Kyle and I drive to the Safeway in Bowness to do our grocery shopping (where guys in the parking lot sometimes try to sell you art made with sharpie pen). Outside Safeway, there is a tiny patch of spruce trees dividing the parking lot from busy 16th ave. Last week as I was hauling the groceries back to our car, I spotted a pregnancy test mixed in with the wood chips beneath the trees. Yikes. I didn't get close enough to the test to see the result but I sure am crossing my fingers and hoping the best for the woman who took a pregnancy test in the Safeway parking lot.

I can't believe you didn't go look.

I have a I heart Bowness sticker but have never felt brave enough to don it anywhere.

Maybe I should send it your way?

I'm with Amisha - you totally looked. Spill it.

Ahhh, good ol' Bowness! I should get ya one of those bumper sticker...

And hey, just in case you did look and the test was +, they always go that way after a certain amount of time so it doesn't necessarily mean that it really was +.

I've always wanted to take one of those stickers and put it on someone's car who obviously does NOT like Bowness. I guess your and Kyle's car is out of the running now.

I was walking through Bowness park yesterday and I saw a pregnancy test box, so maybe it was the mate to your test. Maybe she opened the box by the park and realized you had to pee on it so held it until Safeway. Ana

When I used to live in Ramsay there was an old beat up car with an 'I heart Ramsay' bumper sticker and a fake dead body hanging out of the trunk. It made me laugh every time.

I sure got a lot of fun comments on this one. Ana, between you and me, we totally have bowness covered!

I've seen the I heart Bowness stickers too ... I just wonder why you never see 'I heart Forest Lawn'?
