It's great where I'm from DgrsiChiPom! I am an hours drive north of Toronto. Population under 200,000. I don't lock my doors either lol. We do however get a tonne of snow in the winter due to a snowsquall effect from the great lakes. Like I had mentioned in an earlier post 2 yrs ago we got 4 feet 9 inches of snow in a three week period in January.

Riley, I commented about your name because I thought it was clever. Double meaning. The life of Riley could mean the life of Riley ( your dog) and could also mean your dog is living a pleasant, cushy life. I thought it was cute and clever. Catlover, actually "The Life of Riley" the comedy back in the 40s is not where the expression came from. People actually credit James Whitcomb Riley. He was a poet back in the late 1800s and his poems were about simpler times in America. He gained a big audience because he actually connected with the common folk. He became really rich. Actually, one of the wealthiest writers in America during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Hence, the phrase living the life of riley. Some historians say the phrase can be traced back to a song back in the 1800s but who knows. I wasn't around in the 40s either :-D
