Wonderful Weekend!

Had a super long weekend. Friday it poured, with thunder and lightening, and part of Saturday. But by mid Saturday it cleared up and was in the high twenties for the rest of the weekend.

Went to the Victoria Day celebrations at Queen's Park on Monday. Started out watching the "The Ancient and Honourable Hyack Anvil Battery" at the Queen's Park stadium. This is a 21-gun salute to the monarch, but instead of using guns, or a cannon, they put black powder in between two anvils (bottom one 350 pounds, top one 150 pounds) and then light the powder with a red hot rod. The whole thing explodes with an incredible bang (Very, very, loud!). Repeat 21 times.

After that we went over to the fair. Lots of kiddy rides, dog agility show, junk food, petting zoo and water park. Good donairs, great lemonade. We took Brat (La Wiener) to see the dog show, she was fascinated with the whole thing and wanted to join in. She's 4 months's old now and up to a fantastic 8 pounds. Want's to play with everyone of course, but still just our baby.

Spent the rest of Monday lazing on the front porch and eating ribs.

May sound pedestrian, but it don't get much better.
