Today Was Saturday

Saturday, November 10, 2018

This morning Himself and I went to the Canadian Transportation Museum for a presentation on the Souterrain Exhibit called, โ€œFirst World War Carvings come out of the darkness and into the lightโ€. It was a display of underground carvings which provide a unique glimpse into the experience of Canadian soldiers near Vimy Ridge a century ago. It was quite interesting.

Afterward we went to a craft show at Colasanti's www.colasanti.com/ . We didn't buy anything from the craft show but I did get a poinsettia from Colasanti's. From there I wanted to go to the holistic health and wellness expo. Unfortunately, I didn't remember the right location. It was held at a different place than it was last year.

The rest of the day I did things around the house.

I have stayed away from the cake. emoticon

    That sounds like the type of trip we'd take.

    emoticon for staying away from the cake. That can take monumental effort sometimes!

    And what a great way to spend remembrance day weekend. My older sister has in her custody the letters our grandfather wrote from his service in WWI, and to commemorate the "100 years ago" she's been sharing the letters he wrote and the ones his loved ones wrote to send to him that never made it to him and were returned to sender... on the date, 100 years later... on facebook.

    It has been a lovely way to stretch out the letters over the course of the year, giving insights to our grandparents' courtship, to the loss of Grandpa's brother in a battle, to his experiences "billeted" in France, and later as a prisoner of war working on farms, to little things like the price of eggs, the appreciation of the red cross boxes, and back home the quarantines for the Spanish flu (yes, it was that same year). History comes alive through the lives of your ancestors, who once were young, too!

    Never forget the sacrifices of those who served.
