Saturday Morning Post

The week that was:

Brian, Carolyn and Ron 

On Thursday morning we arranged with our good friends, Carolyn and Brian, 
to meet at the Halifax International Airport.

They were 'seeing off' their daughter on her March Break to Manitoba.
Carolyn and Brian live in the neighbouring province of New Brunswick
and got up pretty early to get here. The Halifax flight was more convenient
than the ones offered in New Brunswick.

On a wall at the airport outside....Starbucks.

So while the daughter was in the boarding lounge waiting for her 'delayed'
flight to start boarding, we adults got a chance to catch up.
And that we did over lunch.

A very big globe-thingy at the airport.

Once we heard that 'daughter' was safe on board we headed back to our vehicles
and said our good-byes.

Carolyn and Ron

It is always so good to spend time with Carolyn and Brian. I have known her since 1973
when we were in university together.
And also she and Brian were our 'best woman and best man' 
at our marriage ceremony in 2009.


 I don't normally post photos of myself...but Lisa from Chicago (click)
stated not too long ago that she wished I would! Why?! I have
no idea! But this is for you you Lisa! You see, I am old enough 
to be a grandfather! lol She will understand this!

So, on to Friday of this week:

I noticed a Canada Post truck in the parking lot at the Park
and I loved the pictures of stamps on it.

It was celebrating the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

You see over 100 of the victims of the Titanic are buried in Halifax. If you would like to learn more about this, click on this link: Titanic Burial Site

I love the art work and the colours here......a job very well done I feel.
Information on the design and designers here: stamp design and designers
Funny thing is I had forgotten till now that one of the designers
is an acquaintance of ours...Dennis Page from Halifax,
who just happens to be Ellen Page's, the actress, father.
There you go!

The Post-Woman couldn't get in her vehicle fast enough to avoid getting photo taken! Too slow!
