Lest we forget

Dedicated to Captain Matthew Dawe, commander of Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry based in Edmonton, Alberta. He was one of six Canadian soldiers, along with an Afghan interpreter, killed in 2007 when their armoured vehicle struck a roadside bomb approximately 20 km southwest of Kandahar City. Captain Dawe’s mother Reine was this year’s Silver Cross Mother at the National War Memorial Remembrance Day service in Ottawa. 🇨🇦

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

In our troubled world we have much to be thankful for this Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend as we think of those far less fortunate suffering the indignity of war at the whims of deranged and despotic leadership.

A lucky capture on the cliff side path between Caswell Bay and Langland Bay yesterday visiting South Wales again for the first time in over 65 years. The little dog kindly posed for us when we caught them up.

Couldn’t resist posting this lovely garden moment to the Lens Artist challenge: Detail

How much is that dogwood in the window?

With apologies to the late Bob Merrill, lyricist, composer and screenwriter, who wrote the song from my childhood, “How much is that doggie in the window?” in 1952.
