This will be my last post for a couple of weeks. I'm headed on a trip to Ontario.
Ontario, for those of you who are unfamiliar, is a middle of the country province, (people from Toronto consider it the 'centre of the universe')... bordered on the east by Quebec, and the west by Manitoba.
Vancouver and Toronto are 3354.71 kilometers apart. That's 2084.58 miles.
Luckily I won't have to walk the whole way.
Thanks to the invention and near perfection of aviation, it will take a mere four and a half hours to cover such a huge distance.
That's not a bad time to go from 'Lotus Land' to the 'Centre of the Universe'.
I will be visiting family, old addresses we lived at when I was a child, (nothing like standing infront of a house you used to live in to bring back the pain) ...the CN Tower, and maybe Niagara Falls....not to mention karaoke with the brothers, the beach with nieces and nephews....and if there's time, maybe we'll do something fun!
When I was a small child in Toronto, I remember having to sing the 'Ontario Song' as part of the opening ceremonies. School's don't have opening ceremonies any more, but back in the stone age we had to stand beside our desks, put our hands over our hearts and sing 'Oh Canada', 'God Save the Queen', recite the Lord's Prayer and cap it all off with the 'Ontario Song'....I think it's a good thing that the modern school system has dispensed with such goings on, but, for the sake of memory lane, (granted it's my own memory lane)....here's the Ontario Song:
On September 3, look for my guest post over at Arlee Bird's blog:
Of course I will probably remind you again once I'm back from back east and it's closer to September!
Have a great time doing whatever it is you do.
See you in September!
I'll leave you with a song.
Hope it plays for everyone!
