Saskatchewan

Had a little visit to Moose Jaw, Saskatoon and the road in between. This a mixed collection of the places and things I saw.  I also spent some lovely time visiting people, but they aren’t as odd or unusual as the things I have here.  Besides I haven’t asked them if I can make them famous…

I am not sure if parking meters warrant as much attention as I have given them here. Maybe someone will find them as interesting or something… as I do.

Ross Elementary School.  I remember the day the bricked up the windows, only to unbrick a few twenty some years later and then board the whole thing up.

    Thank you so much for the brief but wonderful trip down memory lane.I remember so vividly those Saskatchewan summers,so clear and full of promise.Looking back I see all the those things I both cherished and took for granted.
