I’ve decided to lighten it up today with a post about something meaningful to me. AND no writing about the elephant in the world as that’s all that was talked about in my work day. So without further ado here is a little something I’ve created called “My Nanna’s Garden.Continue reading “No elephants here”
My mother couldn’t cook when she got married. Rather an odd state of affairs in the 50’s but there you have it. The long story about why can be found here in the Legacy of May Honey post. Stories abound in the older cousins about the things my mom made that didn’t turn out.Continue reading “By the God Yeezys”
I’ve said it before but it bears repeating. Somehow our current society goes straight from Halloween to Christmas and skips Remembrance Day and this is wrong.Continue reading “Remembrance Season”
This post has taken me the entire fall to pull together. Once I got the images organized turns out I couldn’t get the words to flow.

Then today I was reading a post over at The Spectacled Bean found here at Let’s write friendlier blog posts. She’d found an old 1945 book about how to write a letter and the conversations via comments that ensued made me want to give this a try. Anyone else have a telegram story to share?
Perhaps a post card is more my style. Ah that might just be another post and a trip down memory lane ?
Twice in the last 40 years we muddied the waters of Thanksgiving weekend. Which means we celebrate 3 events over 3 days or so.Continue reading “Muddied Waters”
It feels like a subdued Canada Day; the pandemic cancelling all big celebrations and the protests about our serious inequalities dampering our pride in this country of ours.Continue reading “Canada Day 2020”
There are several items none of us saw coming this year, namely of course, the pandemic. The fall out of that though is where it dips into theContinue reading “Rising”
