With no emotion, Heinrich Rosenberg looked down at the tender new life in his hands. As always these days, his blue farm overalls were filthy, the front of his undershirt was a menu of past meals, sweat stains radiated from under his skinny arms and his dirty calloused feet were pushed into a pair of soiled house slippers. Intense blue eyes looked at the baby from under the bushy eyebrows that were drawn up into a frown. Red spider web veins ran helter-skelter over a bulbous nose that dripped snot onto the tiny male infant.

This little problem was left with him to deal with.

Finally he decided, he would do what he did before…


Apparently I spent way too much time away on the job, and not enough in the office where all the action was.

The people who work for me were tiptoeing around trying not to set me off again. I was vacillating between calling the police, the armed forces or the local motorcycling gang to find and dispose of the weasel that broke my heart and single-handed catapulted my company into the trash heap. Almost!

And today I found he was also dipping into the petty cash. I don’t know how I could have been so blind and stupid to believe the stories he told me about all the troubles we were having installing the brick work at the Seaside Aquarium in Vancouver.

Vancouver, BC owes its' beauty to the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Coast Mountain Range on the other. Couple this with the delta of the mighty Fraser River and you have sand, sea and mountains all within an hour or two drive. The people who live in Beautiful BC consider themselves the luckiest people in Canada. Mild winters, summers not too hot, and stunning picturesque scenery. And they also have a fantastic Aquarium, that needed some upgrade to the front façade. Just the kind of work we specialized in.
