Wishing family and friends below the 49th a very Happy Thanksgiving.

You can see us in the reflection after enjoying a bowl of gazpacho from Little Spain below the High Line trail in New York last month after our short but memorable three day visit.

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 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.
