A day in Montreal

The old train station in Montreal represents the flavour of the city as you see how the architects of old embraced the old world look in a new and grand way. I suppose I could have taken a picture of one of the many great restaurants as well for if there is a city in this country that has consistently great food it would be Montreal as well. I’ve been here many times in the past few years and I am never disappointed.

This trip was a bit of a whirlwind as we visited a number of sites in a short time for some very specific reasons. Included in that was our largest thrift store in the country. What a remarkable team we have working in the Montreal area. They are great people.

I found a few remarkable items too including this through back to another day. It has two doors that slide to the right and left to give it a finished appearance when not in use, but the slide out turntable and colour television are wonderful. If you are from the age of flat screens and i-pods you may not be able to truly appreciate what it is that this family furniture item brought to the home. This would have been someone’s pride and joy.20170614_095017


Our Skype princess

This summer Rachel has really taken to Skype – not that she has her own account, she uses her Mom’s or Grandmother’s account. It is now not unusual at some point in my day to get a call on Skype from her. She is becoming quite a conversationalist too.

On this day she had her tiara from her birthday party. So of course, she had to put that on. She usually wants to know where Grandma is when she calls and sometimes Wendy is able to join us. It is always a delight to get these calls, and as you can imagine we are amazed at how she is growing and developing. She is developing into a lovely young girl.

I wonder which one of the grandchildren will be next?
