happy july first


Fifty years ago today we were walking around Upper Canada Village on our way to ExPo 67 in Montreal. Such a Canadian thing to do, as I was aware at the time.  We were:  my husband, Bill, and our children, Liz, Kate, John and Matt. And what a lovely place. to be!  [I have written somewhere a comparison of Upper Canada Village, Williamsburg and Main Street, USA (DisneyWorld)].

I never gave a thought to where I or any of us would be fifty years hence.  Just as well.  Who could possibly predict that in another five years we would all be in Stratford and my husband dead?  I am also not giving a thought to where I will be in fifty years.  I'm here now.  

Bless us all.
