A Bit of Reminiscing & Happy Anniversary!

This morning I woke up to rain on the roof. Since I wouldn't be able to walk I decided to stay in bed a little longer. I was listening to my oldies station. Every Sunday morning from 6:00 a.m. to noon they have a local singer, Dick Maloney hosting a radio show called 'Sentimental Journey. Years ago when I was in my 20s and single my friend, Linda and I would go to hear him sing at the Butler Hotel in the east end of Ottawa. A few years ago, Dick had an unfortunate accident and is now paralyzed. He resides at a local total care hospital where the radio station has set up a room for him so he can broadcast from there.

I did eventually get up but just hung around all morning. When the rain stopped Gordon went to get photos of raindrops on the tulips and I finally got to have my walk. This steam engine sits on the lot of Drummond Fuels which is right next door to the campground. In fact, they own the campground.


Here's a photo of our lot taken from the Hospital Linen Supply cleaning plant directly behind us. You can see it's quite a good size.



And here's the passenger train going by.

The rest of the day I spent reading and surfing the internet as well as doing jigsaw puzzles on jigzone.com.

That about completes my day!

I want to wish my friends, Laura and Steve a Happy 1st Anniversary tomorrow! I can't believe it's been a year already!

    Thanks for the well-wishes!! We can't believe it's been a year either! Just got back from a wonderful 2nd honeymoon in New York. We were in the audience @ Regis & Kelly last Friday...it was great. So glad you came to our wedding (your hat was FABULOUS!) and hope we see you this summer!

    Love from Laura & Steve
