|Hey! That's mine!|
|Balmy Beach "Slip 'n' Slide" being rolled up and put away|

I only worked there for about seven months, but it was the job I knew I needed to do at some point in my life. And it was in The Beach(es). And it lasted all summer long. I think that the summer of 2005 was the best "working summer" I ever had.

On the south side of Queen, across from Ivan Forrest Gardens, we saw this wonderful storefront:
|I can smell the fruity goodness from here|
The only thing that might have made this image better: if they had put a giant cut-out of the cartoon character "Henry" in front of the window, staring up longingly at the pie with dashed lines indicating the direction of his gaze. You remember Henry, right? Surely I'm not that old:
|Henry, created by Carl Anderson, ghosted for years after his death|
Try as I might I was unable to find a copy of a strip where Henry was staring at a pie on a windowsill, plotting how to steal it. Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me. Again.
Tomorrow's adventure: the Picasso exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario. I'm sure I'll have something to write about after that experience! Saturday will find us at a barbecue; Monday, a picnic. We're going to have to squeeze some work on my website in there somewhere. So it's looking like a busy weekend!
