It’s been a busy few days in Ontario. I went for breakfast on Friday morning to what I call The Greasy Spoon, locals know it as Golden Grill, it’s at the corner of Welland and Geneva in St. Catharines, best breakfast in Niagara. Met with 2 friends, great time.
I had a friend over for lunch on Friday, we figure that we’ve been friends for almost 30 years now, wow. I made chicken and fries peppers with jalapeno havarti cheese on sourdough rye bread, it was great. It was also great catching up.
On Friday evening, I headed to Welland to a friend’s place that I’ve known for 20 years. We had pizza and wings, watched the Astros in a losing effort and had a fire in the propane firepit under the covered deck since it had been raining all day.
I drove to Toronto on Saturday to pick up my aunt and cousin for Halloween Thanksgiving, made 2 round trips, dropped them off and came back to Niagara in the late evening. I would have stayed in Toronto, but I had local plans here yesterday. I went back to Welland to MT Bellies and we caught the Bills game. It was a slow game, until the 4th quarter anyway. The Bills came out on top against the Dolphins. It was a good afternoon of catching up with a friend that I met in grade 4 and a guy I worked with when I was 17. If Facebook isn’t good for much, it’s good for putting you back in touch with old friends, that’s for sure.
Last night I went to a Halloween get-together, it was fun albeit a bit cold. The chili, wings and cake were great. The kids costumes were quite good, the party was on the sidewalk so we were handing out candy.
I’m heading for breakfast today and at some point, returning my rental car to the airport and then heading downtown to my aunt’s place. I believe we are heading to Red Lobster for dinner tonight, so I’ll be eating endless shrimp. Unsure of plans for tomorrow, but Wednesday I’m heading to a Brazilian Steakhouse for dinner, I’ll have meat coma that night. Back to Niagara on Thursday for the weekend and I fly out on Sunday afternoon.
My dogs are doing well, they are being well looked after. They dressed up for Halloween:
I’m looking forward to seeing them Sunday evening.
Enjoy your week and welcome, November.
