One Reply to “Sunday Sundries”
The meanwhile in Ottawa post sure got me thinking John. I had sincerely believed that Canadians were completely different from Americans and would never fall for that trumper “alternate facts” stuff. But many had and it frightened and saddened me. And then February happened here. Huge trucks were on streets close to me, driving at full power on narrow suburban steets honking over and over threatening cars.
I had to conclude that we had our own homegrown red necks here after all. And they are a threat. That’s fersure.
BTW, I was at the Waba Cottage, a rebuilt stone cottage originally built for the Last Laird of McNab Township, and going through the info at Waba in Braeside not long ago. Scary fellow too. Cheers anyway, BT
