I do like your 'photos. I was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved to Canada in the late 70's with the intention of going on to Australia. I didn't get further than Toronto and I'm still here. I do have a memory of Lindsay though and it is as follows;
I was invited buy a friend to visit her family in Lindsay and her Dad was an avid fiddler and may I say was extremely good at it. He also played the accordion and I could have listened to him for hours. He asked me if I liked potatoes and of course being Irish, I said 'of course' so later in the afternoon he asked if I would like to dig some up with him and so out I went with a pair of my friend's wellington boots to dig some spuds. The story gets very funny but I won't bore you with it but I will never forget Lindsay I can tell you that.
Nice to chat with you Basil and thanks for the friend invite.
Hey Basil. We are going to Woodbine on Sunday May 8. I get as many people as want to come on this day to celebrate my birthday. Unfortunately this time it falls on Mother's day so there isn't as many as usual. Annette, Cindy, Gary, Ted and myself will be there. If you want to join us that would be great. Barb
