Perfect Timing

Pancake Dinner tonight 5-7” Said a big banner as I rolled into Drummond just after 5pm on a Wednesday evening. Score! I found my way to the community centre where I found out this Pancake dinner is held once a year on “veterans-day” and today happened to be just that. As I was enjoying my…

Warm Welcomes and the Legends of America!

“This one is on me, and Welcome to America!’ Said the waiter at Billy’s diner in Burlington. What a lovely surprise! I’d just stopped in for a cup of soup as I was getting a little chilly. I’d already been in the country for four days and came across some glorious converted rail tracks from…
