Perfect overhead shots,

Rail fans use bridges lots…

Breathing in

Exhaust from when

Trains go under with exhaust hot!

Feel that rumble beneath,

What a thrill to bequeath…

Hopefully relish the treat!

Photos both coming and going,

Quickly gotten for the showing…

In a slide show

Or for something to crow,

Danger at trackside avoiding!

Gananoque: A Second Home Away From Home.

I have heard it all. In fact, it is pronounced as such: Gan – Ann – Awk – Way. Say that three times fast. There! Now, you’ve got it. Great work. Welcome to our little club, those who are aware of this jewel along the Thousand Islands, Saint Lawrence River.

Gananoque’s translated meaning is, “Water Rising over Rocks” or “Garden of the Great Spirit” (reference: Town of Gananoque). If you were…

She then buried the bodies under a tomato bush


She always knew she’d kill for him. She just was never sure it would be necessary. She was just never sure how much her hands would shake, if at all.  She was just never sure how everyone else would take it. But she had never cared about that.

The day came. And she was ready. No one would keep her from fulfilling her destiny to protect and serve him. Her love for him meant doing anything it took to ensure he was ok.

She then buried the bodies under a tomato bush.   And he has flourished. And she was steely in her resolve to always love him no matter what.
