The good the bad and the not so ugly...

Here in Canada people have joked about Toronto being
what they call "The Centre of the Universe".
Big city, important people all puffed up.
A lot of people have a hate on for the place but not me.
I embrace the multi culturalism, the art, the events, the many
neighbourhoods and, indeed, it's people.
After all, it's those people that have made the city what it is.
My fathers family, as immigrants, were some of those people and now,
in turn, my daughter and son in law and their friends and families
are those who are shaping the city as we know it.
So a little portrait of the Big Smoke.
It's beauty seen through my lens...
Fair well dear city...till we meet again!

Song for Friday...road song...

We picked up a cd on our road trip featuring these two marvelous
pickers and singers.
The woman on guitar and vocals, Pharis, used to play in a local band called
'Outlaw Social' and was a favorite around town for a number of years.
Anyway it was great music goin' thru the Rocky Mountains,
sun shining, rivers glistening, blue skies.
Hope y'all have a great weekend!

One more thing!

O.K, O.K....I know I've posted about the wedding several times
and I just have one more post ceremony one to go.
After all, she is my only child and this was another one of those
snips of the umbilical cord.
I suppose that's why it's so long!
All of these milestones for parents to go through makes for many cuts along the way.
So following the ceremony and the few toasts in the yard, we all
piled into our waiting transportation to the reception...
A trolley car complete with clanging bells!
The kids (young and old!) loved it...
 Ready for the ride?
One more kiss!
All aboard!
Outside the reception venue I took a bunch of fun photos of the bridal party...
Jazz hands everyone!
Everybody kiss the bride!
Ah, so sweet!
Sharing a few more laughs
Best Buds!
All the pretty feet...
Now for the lads...
And altogether now!
Found this car in the parking fitting!
" And in the end
the love you take
is equal to
 the love you make."
