Toronto, Coining A New Word & An Internet Phenomenon

I'm going to post some pics to illustrate a current column about a recent trip my sons and I took to Toronto.




Here's the lads sitting outside someplace semi-famous. I forget what it is though.




Here they are on a street corner. Colourful eh?




This is a citified pond. There are no fish in it.




Toronto's new City Hall.




Some guys working on sidewalk *artvertising.



Son #1 posing as if the CN Tower is growing out of his head! Pretty nifty eh? I bet everybody will start doing clever stuff like this with photos of other famous objects, like the Eiffel Tower, Leaning Tower of Pisa etc. It'll be an internet phenomenon! But remember where you saw it first!


*Dibbs on the new word!

Great shot Dave! And you took it so quickly after getting the idea from my column!

And then back-dated it in a clever attempt to indicate you had the idea before...oh heck....

Hi Lisa, my sister with the great sense of humour! Not to mention a darn cute butt for a 73-year-old!

Lucky the teenwarts were with you to keep you in line ..

As always ... thanks for the chuckles.

I see you took a trip to the big city. It's a bit like visiting the zoo. Nice to see and nice to go home again.

Time you posted again. I enjoy visiting here to read what you're up to.
