Kingston day 1

Trev and Sarah's hospitality is legendary, and they didn't disappoint. Sarah took me on a tour of Kingston's range of mininum to maximum security Disney-princess-castle prisons.

Well Met

Neil and Lauralee had a fine wedding, and a reception with beautiful speeches and open bars. A fine Kitchener-Waterloo wedding, The groom and his men all wore kilts and the German festhall served everyone chicken _and_ schnitzel.
I'm happy for them.

Life Events
