So we planed to take the Go Train to Toronto… but I said to myself… Lets drive I know where to park wright by Ripply’s Aquarium! Easy… absolutely! Just dont’ go right at 6-8am.

Parking lot was EMPTY!! LOL I thought a car was being towed away so chatted with the guy to make sure I am ok to park here…. ohhh how cool! he was giving me all kinds of tips to make sure I don’t get ever towed….LOL

So up we go to the top of the CN Tower… sooo many decades ago remember there was “Sparkle’s” the dance club… Let’s say 35 years ago .. Ahhhh my club for so many years totally amazing time… Dancing Saturday night Disco time. NOOOO more it now is a platform to walk around and see the big city from the top..

Celebrating 35 Years Later

Hard to believe I have lived in Canada already 35 Years as of today… how time goes by. I remember stepping out of the Toronto Pearson International Airport … The heat was OHHH wow… overtaking my breath… +35 if I remember correctly.

My so called “Family” waiting with there 6 month old baby Jacqueline as well, lol…My name became “Jackie” for the next year. … as her Nanny.

I sometimes wonder what she is up too now?…Woodbridge has changes sooo much! It was all farm field at that time…If you are from Ontario .. Do you remember the Drive-In on Hyw 400?

Now movie Theaters and Malls and totally no farm field anymore….I am speechless at times…

Villa Park Dive ( lol I thought I am coming to life in a Villa…HAHAH was I wrong! ) was my home for less then a year… no so good ending to that family story…

Best times after that was finding a wonderful family in Downsview… So much love they have still for one another…. I am thankful for the Hazel’s they gave me a absolutely wonderful memory. Just wish I had kept in contact more…

However we all have our destinies we need to follow… and never say never. Look into the future it is never to late to reconnect…. and make new memories…..and new friends.

Thanks for being my friends for sooo many memories

Nothing Is Promised In This Live….

It is my moments to go for a drive and just drive …

Not to long ago on a Tuesday…

……no destination in mind usually.

My Pick up truck takes me along the county roads… I make sure I know how to back track my ways too. GPS yeah but my GPS is driving on a road that does’t exist most of the times … LOL

Honestly my truck has taken me to the Lake Simcoe lately … or to the smaller Churches around them. I was about to leave that church ground when something just pulled me over on my walks….

A Rose found just like that in the grounds… In Moments when I needed a sign…My Dad always loved roses… What are the odds of that…

Totally amazing to see the old grave stones and the beautiful doors and windows on the churches.

Music by the Lake. Then I clued in a big screen right by the Lake Ahhh I get it  “FIFA Soccer Night”.

2014-06-26 20.23.55This city is a must see …..

I love the tropical feel one get when entering to the south of Switzerland.

Palm trees are a welcome sight. If you like watches and jewellery you better put your walled away. The Glitz, Glam  and sparkles are amazing and so are the prices.

Butcher shop

You have to see the butcher shops…wow! I even seen a show maker …He was very happy to have me take a picture too.  My eyes opened up wide when I seen the spaghetti noodles at one meters long.

Walking by the waterfront, just perfect with all the hustle and bustle of the young and old walking or sitting by the waterfront.

I love all the small allies that lead from out Hotel to the Lake. So special to be able to show this to my son.

 

Lugano

Sailboat By the Pier
Sailboat By the Pier

Wow, was für ein “Happening Platz”.

Sonnig, warm und ja Musik. Zuerst dachte ich, es ist immer so. Musik beim See?  Dann sahen wir die großen Leinwand direkt am See Ahhh natürlich “FIFA Soccer Night” ist ja am laufen.

Diese Stadt muss man besuchen wenn man in der Schweiz ist.

Ich liebe die tropische Atmosphäre in der Süde-Schweiz. Palmen sind ein willkommener Anblick.

Wenn Du nach einer Uhr oder Schmuck suchst, das musst Du den Geldpeutel hervor nehme! Glitz, Glam  funkelt fast jeder Laden und so auch die Preise.

Yes this watch is a total of CHf 15100.00 I told you to leave the walled at home this is one of many...

Ja die Metzgereien, so viel Fleish das immer auch in den Fenstern hängt. Sogar ein Schuhmacher freute sich das ich ihn Fotographierte. Meine Augen öffnete breit, ein Meter lange Spaghetti Nudelns.

Am See spazieren zu gehen,einfach perfekt mit dem juble und trubel von Jung und Alt. Ich liebe all die kleinen “Gässlein”, die von unserem Hotel zum See führen. Und all das durfte ich meinem Sohn zeigen. Ihm hat es hier glauv=be ich am Besten Gefalle. So blieben wir noch etwas länger.
