Aa I await my boarding call, I am more than a little sad to be leaving behind these uncharacteristically blue Vancouver skies for the cold freeze that is griping Calgary. But at least I'm not trying to get to Winnipeg.
It was a grand mini-break. There was coffee and cake and costume shop browsing with Mel, dinner and coffee chats and hail storm dodging with Al. There was much walking up and down hills under the rainbow flags of Davie Street, there was exploring the record stores and thrift shops of Main Street.
Sadly, we did not see Our Lady of the Chinese Sitcoms at McIntosh's Grocery during this trip, nor her perpetually awesome son, but we did make our acquaintance with Mr. Our Lady as we stopped in to buy milk, and he seemed very nice too. I suspect the entire Our Lady family is lovely. They are certainly the cornerstones (quite literally) of Davie and Thurlow.
See you in a couple of months, Vancouver. Don't forget me.
