3 Nov 2016 – From Toronto/Canada
Mon: no rest for the weary. Lunched with Cynthia, Linda’s cousin before she leaves back to Edmonton/Canada. Met with Lawrence at the airport to see him off and to pick up a bottle of bubbles that he could not take with him without checked-in luggage.
Looking forward to sample this bottle of Champagne Roses de Jeanne, where each wine is from a single grape variety, vineyard and vintage.
Happy Halloween and tkx to L&M for the pix. Missing the Magnificent6. Looks like a viking, pirate, some green monster and an adorable minion, but not sure what #1&2 are??
Congratulations to Irmo Boys XC team to qualified for state and to Katy Hall and Katie Weber who qualified as individuals! Good luck to these fine young runners and way to go coaches.

Walked thru’ Ceylon Rd – Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple, a temple for the Hindu god Ganesha who is the presiding deity. Joo Chiat Rd to show Yun some of these well-restored shop-houses.
