Long Weekend

The Labour Day parade up on the square in Goderich was a big success I thought.  There were about 10 minutes worth of speeches by David Yates, Jeff Denys, and Jim Vance.  Then there were about 50 people who pulled a lap of the square representing about 10 different unions.  We collected about 3 bags of food for the food bank in town....  So all in all it was good.  Unfortunately I did not get any pictures.

Shelly had Molly dressed up in an outfit that had been Alden's - Marsha's daughter.  We got a few pictures, but there is a problem.  We have a combination of not having much skill setting up a picture, and a camera that had been around the block and isn't that great.  However - we/I shouldn't blame the equipment as much as the operator of it.  No matter.
And two years ago exactly I crossed paths with an old friend of my parents from Goderich via London via Lucknow - Her name is Janet Bargh.  It was Janet's son Gord who hosted me in Happy Valley Goose Bay on my big trip.  Anyway, the Johnston's hosted an all years Lucknow District High School Reunion at their place.  I helped bbq up some hamburgers for everyone, and Janet, who went to LDHS, was at the reunion again.  I thought Janet and I had posed together back in 2010, but I can't find the picture.  Nevertheless Molly joined us and I know I will see Janet in another two years, but maybe our paths will cross before then. 
And from two years ago - Janet's son Gord & I up in Labrador.
