TOWN NAME, TOWN NAME and another awesome TOWN NAME<br />

Do a job you love and you’ll never work a day.<br />

Whoever said that print is dead must<br />

not have been talking about <strong>Daytripping</strong>.<br />

Last year’s Covid-stricken spring issue<br />

was 52 pages while this one is right back<br />

to the 76 pages it was in 2019 and 2013<br />

and 2009. I don’t think we’ve put out a<br />

larger issue since 2006 and it was a real<br />

workout… kind of caught us by surprise<br />

to be honest. But if you noticed that it<br />

came out in mid-April, later than normal,<br />

that’s not the reason why.<br />

We’ve switched from five issues to<br />

three issues this year, with the next issue<br />

coming out at the start of July and the third<br />

somewhere in the middle of September.<br />

One of the interesting footnotes about<br />

this decision is the condolences we’ve<br />

received. It hadn’t occurred to me that<br />

people might think that <strong>Daytripping</strong> had<br />

fallen on hard times and couldn’t publish<br />

as frequently. We’re happy to report that<br />

this is not the case at all. In 2020, after<br />

25 years of publishing the “Biggest Little<br />

Paper in Canada” we were forced, or I<br />

was forced, to finally slow down because<br />

of you-know-what. Well... it wasn’t the<br />

worst thing in the world, and we decided<br />

to try for a bit more time off going<br />

forward (still waiting for that to happen<br />

though). I don’t know if we’ll ever stop<br />

publishing <strong>Daytripping</strong>, and it looks like<br />

our customers are happy to keep it going<br />

so print is alive and well in some cases.<br />

This issue is back to three sections<br />

and is chock-full of great shops and stops<br />

to explore and a long list of events for the<br />

first time in some time, including Town<br />

Wide Yard Sales. I can’t wait for them!<br />

There are also a lot of new shops that<br />

have opened up (see page 67) and a new<br />

look for our SW Ontario Antique Tour<br />

that has all the antique shops together in<br />

one pullout section (pages 63-66).<br />

The size of this issue really did catch<br />

us off guard and was a challenge so I<br />

have to thank my amazing staff. We’ve<br />

been working nonstop in the final days<br />

to pull it all together. I also need to give<br />

a special shout out to Laurie Dunlop and<br />

Carrie Ann Timm who have both worked<br />

with <strong>Daytripping</strong> for over 25 years now.<br />

Laurie’s silver anniversary actually arrived<br />

last year at a time when we couldn’t get<br />

together, couldn’t go for dinner, couldn’t<br />

have a staff party, and weren’t even<br />

supposed to be in the same room.<br />

in Southwestern Ontario<br />

I had looked forward to that day for<br />

years and when it finally came around<br />

I did almost nothing. In some senses<br />

there’s almost nothing that I could do, but<br />

I was also just in a funk after a full year<br />

of keeping it together pretty well during<br />

a pandemic and then going back into<br />

lockdown. In 1996, Laurie mentioned that<br />

she was closing down her flower shop.<br />

When I asked what she was planning to<br />

do with her time she said she’d probably<br />

go back into advertising sales. Well I just<br />

happened to be in dire need of someone<br />

with that talent and she’s one of the best<br />

in the business. It’s been 26 years now of<br />

great friendship and honest council.<br />

Carrie Ann Timm started one year<br />

later with limited experience and now<br />

she pretty much runs this place. I often<br />

refer to her as my right hand… I don’t<br />

know what I would do without her. She<br />

catches almost every mistake and isn’t<br />

afraid to tell me about them. If there are<br />

politically incorrect, questionable fillers<br />

that you don’t see anymore or as often<br />

in <strong>Daytripping</strong>, that’s Carrie Ann telling<br />

this 50-something male what is and isn’t<br />

wise to print in <strong>2022</strong>. She is tireless,<br />

patient, intelligent and honest, and she<br />

may have started as an intern but is now<br />

the associate publisher.<br />

They get the special shout out this<br />

time but our whole team has worked<br />

incredibly hard and I owe a big thank<br />

you to Carla Mejia, Rhonda Long, Angela<br />

Lyon and Carla MacGregor, not to<br />

mention my patient wife and kids. The<br />

fact that my staff have stuck with me for<br />

this long assures me that I must be doing<br />

something right.<br />

As spring arrives, events come back,<br />

shops remain open and things normalize<br />

please remember these two things:<br />

• Shopping locally and supporting<br />

small business saved this province and<br />

this country. You did this! You don’t have<br />

to stop doing it.<br />

• Stay overnight in Southwestern<br />

Ontario ‘especially’ if you live here. You’ll<br />

love it and you’ll want to do it again.<br />

Thank you so much for picking up<br />

the magazine and for cheering on the<br />

Maple Leafs to win the Stanley Cup.<br />

Mark Moran, Publisher<br />

P.S. I know, I know… It’s actually<br />

prayers that the Leafs need.<br />

Now we’re in HARROW & ESSEX, but you can start wherever you like of course<br />

Stuff<br />

By Esther Meerschaut, Harrow<br />

My house is full of stuff.<br />

I have stuff everywhere: in my kitchen,<br />

my bathroom, and my bedroom. I have<br />

stuff in my cupboards, in my closets, in<br />

my drawers, my attic, my basement,<br />

and in my garage. In those places I have<br />

stuff for wearing, for cooking with, to<br />

garden with, clean with, as well as stuff<br />

for my health like medication and stuff I<br />

really need like clothes, both for wearing<br />

in the house and outside.<br />

I have stuff to clean myself, to make<br />

my hair and skin look better, to make<br />

me look younger and healthier, and to<br />

make me smell better. I have stuff to<br />

hold me in, and stuff to fill me out. I<br />

have stuff to read, stuff to play with, and<br />

stuff to entertain me. I stuff my kitchen<br />

with all kinds of food stuff.<br />

My life is filled with good stuff, bad<br />

stuff, little stuff, big stuff, useful stuff,<br />

junky stuff, and sometimes other<br />

people’s stuff that they have given to<br />

me or that I have bought, often when I<br />

didn’t need it at all.<br />

I spend a lot of time dealing with my<br />

stuff, moving it around and sorting it.<br />

I separate my bad stuff from my good<br />

stuff. The really bad stuff goes into the<br />

trash. I stuff that stuff into bags and let<br />

the garbage truck take it to the dump<br />

where it will join all the stuff that other<br />

people have tossed out.<br />

Other not-so-bad stuff I leave at the<br />

end of the driveway for someone to take<br />

home.<br />

My good stuff is destined for other<br />

places. What I don’t want, I give to<br />

someone who wants more stuff. Some<br />

of it goes to the second-hand store<br />

where I hope someone will add it to<br />

their stuff.<br />

Most of my good stuff, I keep. I put<br />

it somewhere in my house where the<br />

place isn’t too crowded already and<br />

there is room for more stuff. Next time I<br />

do a deep cleaning, I will decide if any of<br />

that good stuff is bad enough or useless<br />

enough to dispose of. At that time, I will<br />

decide whether to put it back where it<br />

was or put it somewhere else. Perhaps<br />

I’ll give it away.<br />

Whenever my daughter comes to stay<br />

for a while, she always brings her stuff<br />

and I have to move my stuff to make<br />

room for her stuff.<br />

And when I visit her, she always<br />

moves her stuff so that I will have room<br />

for my stuff. She empties her drawers<br />

so that I will have room there for what<br />

I brought with me. Together the room<br />

has her stuff and my stuff. It would be<br />

so much easier for me to use her stuff<br />

when I’m there and leave my stuff at<br />

home with all my other stuff.<br />

Last month, I decided to use my<br />

empty guest bedroom closet to store<br />

all my stuff that was too good to throw<br />

away but stuff I might be sorry to lose if<br />

I threw it out.<br />

When I no longer need my stuff, my<br />

daughter will decide what she wants to<br />

keep and what she wants to throw out.<br />

Of course, she will want only the really<br />

good stuff and none of the bad stuff<br />

unless she wants stuff simply because<br />

it reminds her of me or her childhood<br />

years.<br />

At the end of my life, no matter how<br />

much I love all my stuff, I’m going to<br />

have to leave it behind because I know<br />

that I can’t take it with me.<br />

Playing cards were invented in<br />

ancient China, as early as the 9th<br />

century.<br />

Playing cards first entered Europe<br />

in the late 14th century, probably from<br />

Egypt. The suits were very similar to<br />

the present day Tarot: Swords, Staves,<br />

Disks and Pentacles. Tarot is used for<br />

Cartomancy. The word Cartomancy,<br />

or fortune telling, is derived from the<br />

same root as in Cartography… or map<br />

making.<br />

Popular legend holds that the<br />

composition of a deck of cards has<br />

religious, mystical, or astrological<br />

significance.<br />

Each suit of cards represents the<br />

13 lunar months of the year. Since<br />

the Sidereal lunar month may be<br />

approximated to 28 days, each suit<br />

is equal to 364 days of the year. The<br />

365th day falls on October 31st.<br />

Page 8<br />

Similarly, the whole deck of the 52<br />

cards represents the 52 weeks of the<br />

year, therefore the whole deck also<br />

equals 364 days.<br />

The Ace is symbolically<br />

“Alpha and Omega”<br />

or “the Beginning<br />

and the End.”<br />

The Ace of<br />

Spades is known as<br />

“The Death Card.”<br />

It is considered a<br />

trump card because<br />

Death comes for us<br />

all… without escape,<br />

even for kings.<br />

King James I of England<br />

implemented the Stamp Act<br />

(1765), requiring all decks of cards to<br />

bear the manufacturer’s logo on the<br />

Ace of Spades as proof of payment of<br />

a local tax on their manufacture. Until<br />

August 4, 1960, decks of cards printed<br />

and sold in the UK continued to be<br />

liable for taxable duty.<br />

It was usual for Kings to always be<br />

the highest card in their<br />

suit, however, in a<br />

German pack<br />

from the 1440’s,<br />

Queens replace<br />

Kings in two of the<br />

suits as the highest<br />

card.<br />

The King of<br />

Hearts image has a<br />

sword behind his head<br />

and he appears to be<br />

stabbing himself, which<br />

leads to the nickname,<br />

“The Suicide King.”<br />

In the late 14th century (1385),<br />

the lowest card, the Ace, became the<br />

highest card, as the peasantry revolted<br />

It’s All In The Cards<br />

(Hilda’s Hints) Try to see the good in others.<br />

against royal domineering hierarchy.<br />

During the French Revolution,<br />

the traditional design of Kings,<br />

Queens, and Jacks become Liberties,<br />

Equalities and Fraternities. The radical<br />

French government of 1793/94 saw<br />

themselves as toppling the old regime<br />

and, ‘a good revolutionary would not<br />

play with Kings or Queens.’ So, with<br />

the ideals of the revolution at hand,<br />

there was again a resurgence of card<br />

games being played “Ace high,” as a<br />

symbol of lower classes rising above<br />

royalty. This continued until Napoleon<br />

came to power.<br />

There are theories about whom<br />

the court cards represent but it is<br />

theorized to be: King of Hearts -<br />

Charlemagne; King of Diamonds<br />

- Julius Caesar; King of Clubs -<br />

Alexander the Great; King of Spades<br />

- the Biblical King David.<br />

TOWN NAME, TOWN NAME and another awesome TOWN NAME<br />

<strong>Daytripping</strong> in Kingsville<br />

Whether you live in or near Kingsville,<br />

or are a visitor or tourist, the vibrant<br />

town hits all the right notes. The<br />

municipality of Kingsville is made up of<br />

the charming town of Kingsville itself,<br />

but also boasts two quaint villages,<br />

Ruthven and Cottam.<br />

The town is situated on the north<br />

shore of Lake Erie and depending on<br />

bragging rights, it is the most southerly<br />

municipality in Canada. During the<br />

19th century the area was referred to as<br />

“Canada’s Paradise Garden.”<br />

The town and environs live up to<br />

Jack’s Gastropub Photo Credit: Ontario’s Southwest<br />

that rather lofty description with<br />

bountiful offerings from a myriad of<br />

roadside fruit and vegetable stands<br />

to full blown gourmet markets on<br />

the highways and byways. Specialty<br />

shops are scattered throughout<br />

the town and municipality, along<br />

with wineries, breweries, parks,<br />

museums, conservation areas, a<br />

renowned golf course, and most<br />

famously—the home of Jack Miner,<br />

the father of conservation.<br />

This summer, Kingsville is again<br />

hosting “Open Streets” on Saturday<br />

evenings between July<br />

2 and September 3. A<br />

portion of the downtown<br />

is closed to traffic so that<br />

locals and tourists alike<br />

can wander the streets<br />

freely partaking in open<br />

cafes and businesses.<br />

A fantastic lineup of<br />

events is being planned<br />

for Open Streets and<br />

around the town by the<br />

Kingsville Folk Society.<br />

Sights, Sounds, Shopping, and Sipping…<br />

By LouAnn Geauvreau-Karry, Kingsville<br />

Carnegie Gallery & Visitor Centre<br />

The town’s restaurants provide a<br />

world of flavours - from Mediterranean<br />

to Mexican, steakhouses to the best<br />

hamburgers around, Asian and<br />

European cuisine,<br />

as well as barbeque<br />

food, pizza, and<br />

wraps… you name<br />

From<br />

Hello <strong>Daytripping</strong>,<br />

Our Readers<br />

After my wife and I picked up the 25th anniversary issue of the Daytripper<br />

and read through the history article, we were remembering the many times<br />

we utilized the paper. We used it to guide us to interesting destinations for<br />

vacations and weekends. We almost never ventured out without referring to<br />

it. Originally living directly in the golden horseshoe area we have recently<br />

retired and moved to the Oxford county area. Mostly because we love the<br />

area but also to be more central to the various events and destinations. We<br />

kept various copies, and excerpts, over the years because the calendars or<br />

articles held information that we repeatedly use. We’ve been utilizing it for<br />

most of the papers printing history. It is still our “Go To” paper if we are<br />

planning an outing. Keep up the good work and thank you.<br />

Lisa and Graeme, Norwich<br />

The Greenhouse Capital<br />

By C. W. Tiffin, Chatham<br />

One year in our retirement lives,<br />

my wife and I decided to move to an<br />

apartment in the city of Leamington. We<br />

probably would have stayed longer had it<br />

not been for the fact that we were away<br />

from family and friends. We eventually<br />

decided that we were not yet ready for<br />

apartment living and would like to live<br />

once again in a home of our own back<br />

in Chatham. There were many things I<br />

would miss in Leamington. As you know<br />

though, it’s hard to have it all.<br />

For anyone who has never been to<br />

Leamington or Kingsville, especially if<br />

you are into <strong>Daytripping</strong>, it really is a<br />

good destination. The thing is, these are<br />

two places you don’t just pass by—you<br />

have to drive right to them. However, they<br />

are well worth the trip whether you are<br />

going for the day or wish to stay longer<br />

in one of the B&Bs<br />

or inns. The drive<br />

along Hwy. #3 to<br />

Leamington from<br />

the east is always<br />

refreshing as you<br />

catch glimpses of<br />

Lake Erie and pass<br />

rolling farmland<br />

and food stalls by<br />

the roadside, selling<br />

Pelee Island<br />

Winery<br />

both home grown as well as greenhouse<br />

tomatoes, peppers, asparagus, onions and<br />

whatever else is in season.<br />

I am listing some of those sights, as I<br />

remember them. First of course would<br />

be Point Pelee National Park, where<br />

birdwatchers flock to both in the spring<br />

and fall of each year to view the migration<br />

of thousands of our feathered friends.<br />

The park also features an excellent<br />

sandy beach great for sunbathing and<br />

swimming in Lake Erie. It also has a<br />

unique boardwalk which meanders for at<br />

least a half mile through the reed marsh<br />

near the entrance to the park.<br />

We lived on the ninth floor of the<br />

“Towers” with a balcony from which had<br />

a panoramic view overlooking the marina<br />

for the Lake Erie boaters, and a splendid<br />

view of the adjacent park where many<br />

wedding pictures were taken. We could<br />

see the yachts and other large boats,<br />

mostly Americans from Ohio who pretty<br />

well had the marina rented out throughout<br />

the summer months, and they would sail<br />

in from across the lake to tie up. We also<br />

had a view of the dock, where the ferry<br />

boat docked that picked up passengers as<br />

well as cars, trucks, bicycles and people,<br />

some with tents heading over to Pelee<br />

Island either for the day, or longer. My<br />

wife and I made the trip one day and<br />

had a great time sampling wine at the<br />

Pelee Island Winery Pavillion, which also<br />

served meals as well as selling steaks for<br />

those inclined to self-cook and dine on<br />

the wineries barbeques and picnic tables.<br />

The boat trip alone was well worth the<br />

modest price. Pelee Island Winery also<br />

has it’s main location in Kingsville.<br />

There are three<br />

golf courses in the<br />

area. An excellent<br />

nine-hole course<br />

near Wheatley, a<br />

very good eighteenhole<br />

course at<br />

Leamington, and<br />

probably one of<br />

the best courses<br />

anywhere in<br />

Southwestern Ontario at Kingsville Golf<br />

& Country Club. So, if you are an avid<br />

golfer, throw your clubs in the car before<br />

you leave home, and of course, call<br />

ahead for a tee time. Kingsville is also<br />

the home of Jack Miner. Every spring and<br />

fall thousands of wild geese stop there on<br />

their migration flights.<br />

Remember to bring a cooler so that<br />

you can take home some of ther bounty<br />

from Essex County.<br />

Publisher’s note: Claude had originally<br />

mentioned visiting the village of Wheatley<br />

where fresh fish can be bought at the<br />

local fisheries. The downtown may not<br />

be accessible due to a natural gas issue<br />

but the fisheries he refers to are south of<br />

town in a very unique part of the region -<br />

it’s a great area to drive and explore.<br />

The<br />

Wisdom of...<br />

Eleanor Roosevelt<br />

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of<br />

their dreams.<br />

A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is<br />

until you put her in hot water.<br />

It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.<br />

Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be<br />

criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned<br />

if you don't.<br />

You must do the things you think you cannot do.<br />

Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.<br />

It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.<br />

Never allow a person to tell you no who doesn't have the<br />

power to say yes.<br />

When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act<br />

to prevent human misery rather than avenge it?<br />

I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered.<br />

But I was not pleased to read the description in the<br />

catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.<br />

SPRING <strong>2022</strong>


Now we’re daytripping to CHATHAM, BLENHEIM, KENT BRIDGE & PALMYRA<br />

Hilda’s Helpful Hints<br />

Publisher’s Note: After reading this<br />

article, read along the bottom borders for<br />

a few of Hilda’s most helpful hints.<br />

A few years ago I wrote a book for<br />

my niece, after the death of my mother,<br />

who had pretty much raised her. The<br />

book had a few possible titles: 1. Hilda’s<br />

Helpful Hints, 2. Grandma’s Good Ideas<br />

3. Hilda’s Hints for<br />

a Happy Life... and<br />

other interesting<br />

ideas from Grandma.<br />

That same book, I<br />

decided to re-write,<br />

by hand, for each of<br />

our children, tailored<br />

to them, and I painstakingly worked on<br />

it every Sunday morning after church,<br />

and sometimes before church. Needless<br />

to say, these tasks took me more than<br />

a few Sunday mornings and afternoons.<br />

Mom died when I was just back from<br />

a trip to France with my Gr. 8 students<br />

in 2013... almost nine years ago already!<br />

Mom had only a Grade 8 education in a<br />

one room school house in Waterdown,<br />

where she literally walked three miles<br />

to school uphill both ways with three of<br />

her nine living siblings. (I drove the route<br />

with a cousin after a funeral a few years<br />

ago, and it truly is uphill both ways and<br />

exactly three miles!) Others were older,<br />

one died in the second world war, others<br />

had even more interesting stories but I<br />

digress...<br />

Despite only having a grade 8<br />

education, Mom was undoubtedly one of<br />

the most intelligent people I’ve known.<br />

She always knew the right thing to say.<br />

She could design, sew, knit, crochet<br />

anything - and she did, for all of our<br />

My love of language started<br />

at a very early age, and I<br />

would listen carefully to<br />

Mom’s little pieces of advice...<br />

By Janet Shrumm, Sarnia<br />

family and many relatives who came<br />

to live with us over the years. My father<br />

and brothers never went to a barber.<br />

They just pulled up a chair at the kitchen<br />

table and mom gave them haircuts. My<br />

sister and I would stand in front of the<br />

bathroom mirror with scotch tape across<br />

our bangs and then Mom would “give<br />

us a trim”. Mom<br />

did all the cooking<br />

and baked delicious<br />

desserts, and I do<br />

mean all. I don’t<br />

think my father knew<br />

how to boil water -<br />

however he was a<br />

wonderful man who worked tirelessly as<br />

an electrician, bought, renovated, sold<br />

many homes, took care of the cars and<br />

had a workshop in the garage with all<br />

the tools you could imagine.<br />

My love of language started at a very<br />

early age, and I would listen carefully to<br />

Mom’s little pieces of advice, mull them<br />

over in my mind, picking and choosing<br />

which ones I would follow. When I<br />

married and became a mother myself,<br />

I tried to convince her to write down<br />

her ideas but she never took the time.<br />

She was too busy looking after others,<br />

helping out with the Catholic Women’s<br />

League, and supporting my father in all<br />

his activities—Knights of Columbus, St.<br />

Vincent de Paul Society and of course<br />

their own parishes in Sarnia.<br />

I tried to remember as many of her<br />

words of wisdom that I could, and I<br />

thought I’d share a few with you. (and<br />

you can find these sayings and Hilda’s<br />

pieces of advice starting on bottom border<br />

of page 2 of this issue).<br />

trains and stations. He started in oils and then acrylic, airbrush and now digital art. Richard<br />

volunteers as an art teacher at the senior centre and also teaches digital art to youth.<br />

Paul’s Food Bar (pictured on cover), located in the heart of downtown St. Thomas, was a favourite<br />

hang out for those waiting for their ride south on the Old London Port Stanley Railway. As a born<br />

and raised in St. Thomas artist, I fell in love with the unique history of St. Thomas, once known as the<br />

Railway Capital of Canada. Many other railway pieces of art can be seen at 916 Galleria at Elgin<br />

Centre Mall (St. Thomas), Crocker’s at 445 Talbot St. (St. Thomas), Station Arts Centre (Tillsonburg),<br />

‘Tis the Season For Ontario Strawberries<br />

There’s nothing quite like the first juicy<br />

strawberries of the season. The bright red gems are<br />

filled with such sweet flavour, it’s no wonder we can’t<br />

wait to get out and gather them!<br />

As delightful as fresh strawberries are all by<br />

themselves, the fruits can add a big burst of flavour to<br />

a variety of dishes…from salads and smoothies to omelets and desserts.<br />

These recipes put succulent strawberries in the spotlight. And, because these<br />

dishes are all family favourites, you know they’ll be “berry” good indeed.<br />

Strawberries... A Powerhouse of Nutrition<br />

One 140 g serving of eight (8) medium-sized strawberries has:<br />

• 140 % of the Daily Value of Vitamin C<br />

• 12% of the Daily Value for dietary fibre<br />

• Only 7 grams of sugar (lowest among the top-selling fruits)<br />

• A source of folate and potassium<br />

• Only 45 calories<br />

Music<br />

By Fred Parry, Bright<br />

www.fredparry.ca<br />

in Me<br />

Love Affairs<br />

I guess my love affair with music<br />

started in the backseat of a car... no,<br />

not that backseat... actually the back<br />

window of my mom’s old 1950s Buick.<br />

To make more room, I had shifted<br />

the big old pile of ‘78 records from the<br />

seat to the back window shelf where<br />

the hot, summer sun beating through<br />

the large, rear glass window melted and<br />

warped them all. My mom was horrified<br />

and, right then and there, I realized that<br />

music meant something to people, and<br />

what I had done was sacrilege! Music<br />

meant everything to my mom—it was<br />

her voice—and I just killed it!<br />

That was the day that music gave<br />

birth to a brand-new reality in my soul.<br />

Music had the power to move people;<br />

and seeing what it meant to my mother,<br />

it eventually became my voice too...<br />

music began speaking to me.<br />

John Lennon once said, “Before Elvis<br />

there was nothing.” That’s the way it<br />

was for me, too. I can still remember as<br />

a pre-teen falling to sleep during a long<br />

car ride, as the radio belted out Elvis<br />

singing, “I just want to be your teddy<br />

bear.” I don’t remember anything about<br />

music before that.<br />

I was so hooked; I even remember<br />

being thrilled by the design of old record<br />

labels. Just to mention a few there was<br />

Decca, RCA with the little dog “listening<br />

to his master’s voice,”<br />

and Columbia’s label that<br />

showed twin microphones.<br />

(I know it sounds silly and<br />

juvenile but I was, after<br />

all, just a kid.) Later when<br />

the Beatles came along,<br />

I can still remember the<br />

label design of smaller<br />

45 records of the Capital<br />

label and also their own<br />

“Apple” label.<br />

Personally, as a ‘Zoomer,’ I had grown<br />

up through the end of two eras and the<br />

beginning of another. There was the<br />

“big band” sound of the 1940s (my<br />

dad’s favourite), the early rock ’n’ roll of<br />

the Four Seasons and Elvis (my mom’s<br />

best choice), and even though I got a<br />

piece of that era with Chubby Checkers<br />

and the Twist, it was really the “British<br />

Invasion” of the early 60s that was in<br />

my sweet spot.<br />

Actually, I was one of the last in<br />

my generation to catch on to who the<br />

Beatles were. It took a game of Spin<br />

the Bottle and my first, real, teenaged<br />

kiss, with the song “Eight Days a Week”<br />

playing in the background. My head was<br />

spinning and I was convinced that if the<br />

girls loved this band, I really should get<br />

on board with the new sound!<br />

I also realized something else: if the<br />

girls loved the music, then that went<br />

double for musicians! (Hey, maybe<br />

those old piano lessons my mom sent<br />

me to, would finally pay off!) Next thing<br />

I knew I was in the high school band and<br />

blowing the school’s saxophone on the<br />

weekends, as part of a rock group. (Oh<br />

how sweet life can be!) Even the thugs<br />

left us “musicians” alone; because they<br />

knew that like bees to honey, where we<br />

were, so were the girls.<br />

Golf’s Tall Tales<br />

A young man, who was an<br />

avid golfer, found himself with<br />

a few hours to spare one<br />

aernoon. He figured that if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in 9<br />

holes before he had to head home. Just as he was about to tee off, an old<br />

gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the young man<br />

as he was golfing alone. Not being able to say no, he allowed the old man to join<br />

him. To his surprise, the old man played fairly quickly. He didn’t hit the ball far,<br />

but plodded along consistently and didn’t waste much me. Finally, they reached<br />

the 9th fairway and the young man found himself with a tough shot. There was a<br />

large pine tree right in front of his ball and directly between his ball and the<br />

green. Aer several minutes of debang how to hit the shot, the old man finally<br />

said, “You know, when I was your age, I’d hit the ball right over that tree.” With<br />

that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard, hit the ball up, right<br />

smack into the top of the tree trunk and it thudded back on the ground not a<br />

foot from where it had originally lay. The old man offered one more comment,<br />

“Of course, when I was your age, that pine tree was only 3 feet tall. ”<br />

The strings were tied, it was freshly washed, and maybe even pressed.<br />

For Grandma, it was everyday to choose one when she dressed.<br />

The simple apron that it was, you would never think about;<br />

the things she used it for, that made it look worn out.<br />

Grandma’s<br />

Apron<br />

Poem by<br />

Tina Trivett,<br />

sent in by<br />

Barbara<br />

Fullarton,<br />

Paisley<br />

She may have used it to hold some wildflowers that she’d found.<br />

Or to hide a crying child’s face when a stranger came around.<br />

Imagine all the little tears that were wiped with just that cloth.<br />

Or it became a potholder to serve some chicken broth.<br />

She probably carried kindling to stoke the kitchen fire.<br />

To hold a load of laundry, or to wipe the clothesline wire.<br />

When canning all her vegetables, it was used to wipe her brow.<br />

You never know, she might have used it to shoo flies from the cow.<br />

She might have carried eggs in from the chicken coop outside.<br />

Whatever chore she used it for, she did them all with pride.<br />

When Grandma went to heaven, God said she now could rest.<br />

I’m sure the apron that she chose, was her Sunday best.<br />

Before I Was A Mom<br />

... I slept all night.<br />

... I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.<br />

... Before I was a Mom, I had never been puked on.<br />

... Pooped on... chewed on... peed on.<br />

... I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.<br />

... Before I was a Mom, I never held a sleeping baby<br />

just because I didn't want to put it down.<br />

... I never looked into teary eyes and cried.<br />

... I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.<br />

... I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.<br />

... I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.<br />

... I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.<br />

... I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.<br />

... Before I was a Mom, I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every<br />

10 minutes to make sure all was okay.<br />

... I never knew that I could love someone so much.<br />

... I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.<br />

... I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.<br />

... I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.<br />

... Before I was a Mom, I never thought about immunizations.<br />

... I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important.<br />

... I didn’t know the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment<br />

or the satisfaction of being a Mom.<br />

... I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.<br />

... And before I was a Grandma, I didn't know that all those "Mom" feelings<br />

more than doubled when you see that little bundle being held by "your baby."<br />

Frances’ Helpful Hints<br />

by Frances Botham<br />

1) Did you know that you can keep celery fresh for<br />

weeks in the refrigerator if you wrap it in aluminum<br />

foil?<br />

2) Do you find that any potatoes you store,<br />

particularly at this time of year, start budding?<br />

There is an easy solution to this. Just put an apple in the container<br />

with the potatoes and no more buds!<br />

3) You can prevent eggs from cracking during the boiling process by<br />

adding a pinch of salt to the water.<br />

4) Did you know that potatoes will take food stains off your fingers?<br />

Rub the raw potato on the stains and wash with soap and water.<br />

5) Those pesky mosquitoes are soon going to be out in full force and<br />

nothing can create a greater itch than their sting. Well, I’ve got the<br />

answer. Rub soap on the itch and itch be gone!<br />

6) A friend of mine has the sweetest smelling house in town,<br />

particularly after she does her spring cleaning. She cleans all the<br />

mirrors in the house with air freshener and says it works and smells<br />

better than window cleaner.<br />

7) What’s the common denominator between indigestion and dirty<br />

gold jewellery? Alka-Seltzer of course! Put two tablets into a dish of<br />

water and put the jewellery in it for about two minutes. Take out,<br />

rinse thoroughly and dry to a wonderfully clean shine.<br />

8) Did you know that you can even unclog a drain with good old<br />

Alka- Seltzer? That’s right. Drop a couple of tablets down the drain<br />

followed by a cup of vinegar. Wait about 5 minutes and flush with<br />

hot water.<br />

9) The invasion of ants will soon come, but you can easily control<br />

the situation if you remember that ants won’t cross a chalk line. Try<br />

drawing one wherever they have a march line into your house and<br />

they will not cross it.<br />

10) Did you know that rubbing a piece of lime across your forehead<br />

can ease a headache?<br />

Early this year, I lost my dad to that<br />

great Duplicate Bridge Game in the Sky.<br />

Much as we who knew him will surely<br />

miss him, it is also true that he is still<br />

here with us in so many ways. Since<br />

Father’s Day is around the corner and,<br />

since this nut didn’t fall all that far from<br />

the mighty oak, it seems only natural<br />

to share some of my father’s inimitable<br />

wit and humour with those of you who<br />

have or have ever had a great dad.<br />

My dad exuded bravado, confidence<br />

and false modesty. The plaque in his<br />

office read: “It’s hard to be humble<br />

when you’re as great as I am” and<br />

nothing could be closer to the truth, his<br />

truth. Of course he also firmly held the<br />

conviction that “I’m not opinionated;<br />

I’m just always right” so there was<br />

little point in arguing with him once<br />

he had made that opinion known—<br />

which often took some cajoling on our<br />

part. Like most jokesters he tended to<br />

respond to a genuine query with some<br />

sort of clever and still slightly evasive<br />

answer.<br />

For example: returning from grade<br />

school history class where I had only<br />

just learned about some of the activities<br />

and devastation of the last Great War, I<br />

naturally asked my dad “What did YOU<br />

do in the war, Daddy?”<br />

Without skipping a beat, he<br />

responded confidently, “I started it!”<br />

Similarly, when the youngest<br />

grandson in the family brought his<br />

bride-to-be over to The House for<br />

introductions and grandparental<br />

scrutiny, the young lady was certainly<br />

no slouch in the cleverness department.<br />

She remembers one of the first lengthy<br />

conversations she had with Grandpa<br />

when he was expounding on one of<br />

his rare war stories. He mentioned that<br />

all the men carried powdered water as<br />

part of their rations. The newest family<br />

member waited for him to explain,<br />

while Grampa also waited patiently for<br />

her to comment.<br />

Finally, she spoke up and with all<br />

due respect asked, “You must mean<br />

powdered milk?”<br />

“No,” he affirmed, “I mean<br />

powdered water.”<br />

Still unable to grasp this concept she<br />

asked, “Well, I don’t know what that<br />

is.”<br />

Grandpa, satisfied that this young<br />

lady was a ‘keeper’ for his grandson,<br />

Piece of Mind<br />

The Mighty Oak<br />

From <strong>Daytripping</strong><br />

MayJune 2001<br />

By Joan Richardson,<br />

London<br />

concluded the exchange with, “That’s<br />

what we old folks throw in to see if<br />

you’re paying attention to the story!”<br />

My dad fully expected the seas to<br />

part for him and to win any enterprise<br />

he undertook. If I were to challenge<br />

him to some sort of mental duel such<br />

as Scrabble or any card game, I’d often<br />

tease by announcing my imminent<br />

arrival and asking him if he was “ready<br />

to be beaten.”<br />

Even as an octogenarian, he never<br />

missed an opportunity to retort, “Why?<br />

Are you bringing someone else?”<br />

When he drove up to a busy office<br />

building or an elite restaurant at<br />

supper time, he fully expected to find<br />

a parking spot directly in front of his<br />

destination. No driving around the lot<br />

on the way in to this destination. Not<br />

my dad. Invariably, he steered right up<br />

to that front door and invariably there<br />

would be a parking spot waiting for him<br />

there. One time my hubby recollects<br />

a parking attendant informing my<br />

father on his arrival there “This spot is<br />

reserved for someone important.”<br />

Of course Dad immediately quipped<br />

back, “I’m here,” —and got the spot!<br />

We always marvelled at this talent<br />

but alas, none of us have been able to<br />

duplicate it... must be the confidence<br />

thing. It certainly wasn’t ‘dumb’ luck.<br />

He never believed in luck, insisting<br />

“The harder I work, the luckier I get.”<br />

Not one to lavish praise on anyone<br />

undeserving of same, I can recount<br />

a few occasions when I might have<br />

made up, in part for my errant youth,<br />

with some action he was willing to<br />

impart his modest degree of thumbs<br />

up. At the occasion of my parents’<br />

fiftieth anniversary, I made a speech<br />

containing what might be construed<br />

as a few tiny, little, good-natured<br />

barbs directed at the family patriarch,<br />

earning myself some hearty guffaws<br />

from the audience and this response<br />

from the barb-ee, “I want to thank<br />

my daughter for her kind words ... all<br />

four of them.” Later, about one of my<br />

columns he seemed to appreciate, his<br />

only comment was, “I couldn’t better<br />

have written it myself.” High praise<br />

indeed.<br />

He was often a man of few words<br />

but those he utilized were well chosen.<br />

Like myself, he enjoyed dabbling with<br />

this nebulous language and would<br />

write letters to business associates<br />

using only one letter to start each word<br />

in his letter. One example concerning<br />

a rare gaffe emanating from his<br />

business office (probably due to his<br />

inexperienced office help—moi). He<br />

wrote: “To minimize muddle, I must<br />

meddle to modify a middleman<br />

mistake and may modestly manage<br />

to modulate manufacturer’s materials<br />

more meticulously. My meagre<br />

monitoring methods might mortify<br />

me in more mundane matters but are<br />

mighty malleable.” Whew!<br />

Some of Dad’s Daffy-nitions we all<br />

came to know and repeat included the<br />

following:<br />

Rumpuss: a cat fight<br />

Shampagne: bogus bubbly<br />

Ultraviolent: someone who is purple<br />

with rage<br />

Quackers: the salted wafers served<br />

with duck soup<br />

Quackpot: the vessel in which duck<br />

soup is prepared<br />

He was also a master of warped<br />

philosophy with these profound<br />

conclusions:<br />

“A rolling stone is going downhill.”<br />

“All that glitters reflects light.”<br />

“A bird in the hand will do you dirt.”<br />

“He who laughs last didn’t get it.”<br />

And my favourite: “Any philosophy<br />

that can be put in a nutshell belongs<br />

there.”<br />

Obviously there are too many<br />

examples and anecdotes to wedge in<br />

this writing space, but I’m sure everyone<br />

has a dad in their lives not all that unlike<br />

the one I’ll always remember. When he<br />

would leave a bridge table, having no<br />

doubt soundly trounced his opponents,<br />

but ever so politely, the recipients of<br />

this beating would often thank him for<br />

the ‘pleasant experience’ by shaking<br />

his hand and uttering that “nice to have<br />

met you” departure protocol. Just to<br />

ensure they realized that they HAD just<br />

lost the hand, he would also ever-sopolitely<br />

smile and say “It was nice for<br />

you to have been met by me.” Never<br />

backward about being forward was<br />

he and I shall always pronounce his<br />

somewhat difficult surname the way<br />

he liked it to be pronounced... with<br />

reverence.<br />

Some time ago, I wrote a poem<br />

honouring my dad for “His Day” in<br />

June (when he not-so-subtly informed<br />

me that he had more than enough<br />

ties and socks). I will use this rhyme<br />

to conclude our tribute to fathers<br />

everywhere.<br />

DAD<br />

There’s a man in my life who’s a hero-<br />

Not your gun-totin’, high-kickin’ kind;<br />

But the man we all want to be near to-<br />

Someone every girl hopes she will find.<br />

When there’s fun to be made—he makes it.<br />

When there’s work to be done—he does it;<br />

And if there’s family involved,<br />

you needn’t have called,<br />

He’s the Star on the Tree and he loves it!<br />

He’s survived a Great War and Depression<br />

With courage that puts young men to shame;<br />

But if you ask of his greatest distinction-<br />

He’ll regurgitate last night’s bridge game.<br />

He’s the cleverest man on the planet-<br />

I asked him and that’s what he said;<br />

But the reason I’ll adore him forever:<br />

He’s my hero, my first love,<br />

He’s my DAD.<br />

The Patio is the Place To Be!<br />

The past two years may have proved that, once<br />

again, necessity is the mother of invention. The ideas<br />

are plentiful and so cool. Countless new patios were<br />

built and popularized because of you-know-what,<br />

but they’re here to stay and there are hundreds to<br />

choose from. Kingsville’s “Open Streets” concept is<br />

back again this year with loads of outdoor dining and<br />

entertainment. Then there are the priceless “Swing<br />

Set Tables” at Shale Ridge Estate Winery in Thedford—<br />

you have to sit in them to appreciate them.<br />

Events and Town Wide Yard Sales are back! See pages 49-51<br />

We could almost handle two years of no events, but two summers with no Town<br />

Wide Yard Sales was torture! They’re back baby! Gather your quarters and loonies<br />

and comb through our events list. Please remember that these are usually “unofficial”<br />

events and you should be prepared for anything, including disappointment. Maybe<br />

have a backup plan if there aren’t as many sales as there are in Petrolia, the year’s<br />

first event. Bring bicycles if you can—it’s a perfect way to maneuver through the<br />

streets while exploring a different town.<br />

It Pays to Staycation - See 2nd section cover and pages 26 & 47<br />

Ontarians are eligible for a tax credit—up to $200/person, $400/family—just for<br />

spending time in Ontario. It’s as simple as handing in your accommodation receipts<br />

when doing your taxes for <strong>2022</strong>, so keep those receipts! Also, here’s a tip! Always<br />

check with a DMO (i.e. Tourism London or Tourism Sarnia-Lambton) because many<br />

of them are now offering gift certificates as incentives for booking accommodations.<br />

<strong>Daytripping</strong> is great, but Staycationing is even better!<br />

We search for unique shops and often find them in<br />

the most unlikely places. Robert Hall Originals in<br />

St. George is certainly one of the gems, in more<br />

ways than one. One part of the shop is a bounty of<br />

rocks, gems, minerals, petrified wood intertwined<br />

with another portion with Bob’s original pewter<br />

creations, with craft supplies thrown in just to make<br />

inventory nearly impossible. But the real gems here<br />

are Betty and Bob Parry and they are retiring. They’ve<br />

wish them all the best.<br />

Aylmer Sales Arena & Farmers’ Market is back - See page 62<br />

Best news in a long time! Months of renovations and rebuilding are in the final<br />

phase as the next generation works toward re-opening a long time favourite area<br />

market. As of May 3rd, Tuesdays are more fun: new building, new indoor & outdoor<br />

vendors. Explore & enjoy!<br />

Something’s cooking in Vittoria! - See page 69<br />

Such a cross-section of variety awaits you in<br />

this destination village. The Good Bread Company,<br />

experts in artisan breads also offers a bounty of<br />

Norfolk County with complimentary grown or made<br />

products. Kernel Peanuts will astound you with the<br />

selection of Ontario peanuts and products. As the<br />

retail store for Canada’s largest grower, it really is<br />

“Nuttin’ But the Best!” And the Cider Keg Farm<br />

Market offers the best in seasonal produce, with a<br />

focus on apples. Their own Apple Cider is a must try,<br />

and the baking is reminiscent of Mom & Grandma.<br />

Classic Car Shows are back too!<br />

We have waited for these, and this is the year! A delight for enthusiasts, and<br />

browsers alike, and a key component of town and area festivities. Petrolia May 21st<br />

and June 19 • <strong>Spring</strong>field Nostalgia-Rama: May 28 • Chatham Retrofest: May 27/28<br />

• Shedden’s Rosy Rhubarb: June 11/12 • Kingsville June 12 • St. Thomas June 19<br />

and July 9 • Blenheim’s Classic Car Show: June 24/25 • Selkirk August 6 and the<br />

Southcoast Dreamdrive on Sept. 17/18—and there’s no way we’ve listed them all.<br />

If you love outdoor concerts... go to page 69<br />

Burning Kiln Winery is located along a beautiful<br />

stretch of road overlooking a globally recognized<br />

biosphere, between Port Rowan and Port Dover and<br />

a few minutes from Turkey Point Provincial Park.<br />

Long Point Eco Adventures is also across the road.<br />

But the best part might still be the “Concerts in the<br />

Vineyard.” They have weekly entertainment on<br />

the patio but occasionally have had bigger names<br />

like Jim Cuddy and Jann Arden in their big back<br />

yard. Watch for their events and bring your own<br />

lawnchair to enjoy one of the best venues around,<br />

complete with Hometown Brew, food trucks and,<br />

of course, great wine.<br />

17 ARTHUR STREET EAST, HARRISTON OPEN TUESDAY-SATURDAY<br />

The Surprise<br />

A One-of-a-Kind ESCAPE ROOM<br />

in a remarkable heritage building<br />

When negative thoughts threaten to<br />

invade my peace of mind, I think back<br />

to the pleasant times in my childhood,<br />

when the wolrd seemed full of wonder.<br />

One event especially stands out.<br />

I was just ten years old when my<br />

father made the proposal. I would get<br />

up early the next morning—which was<br />

a Saturday and go to the woods with<br />

him. He would have a surprise for me.<br />

Thinking the surprise would probably<br />

be the first spring flowers to appear, or<br />

perhaps the arrival of the red-winged<br />

blackbirds, I wondered if either would<br />

really justify the very long walk.<br />

“I think it’s too cold for any flowers<br />

to be up,” I remarked knowingly. “And<br />

I don’t suppose the birds have arrived<br />

elther.”<br />

“We’ll see,” my father replied. “We’ll<br />

see.”<br />

The next morning, my mother gave<br />

us an early breakfast and my father and<br />

I set off on the three-mile walk to the<br />

woods at the edge of the town,<br />

Although it was the middle of April, it<br />

was cool and windy and the only spring<br />

flowers to be seen were a few isolated<br />

clumps of hepatica, half closed and<br />

shivering pathetically between the roots<br />

of great trees.<br />

Remembering the way I had once<br />

seen these woods, when the ground was<br />

purple with violets and another time<br />

when there were more flowers than I<br />

could identify, I was disappointed. Had<br />

we come all this way for nothing?<br />

“See,” I mumbled sullenly, “it’s too<br />

cold. Everything’s going to be late this<br />

year.”<br />

My father said nothing, but pointed<br />

to a small green snake that was weaving<br />

its way deftly through the dry, curled<br />

oak and beech leaves that crackled<br />

under our feet.<br />

I watched, fascinated. But knew it<br />

wasn’t on the off-chance of seeing a<br />

snake that had brought us here.<br />

Every now and again my father would<br />

point out something he thought would<br />

interest me: the softly curling leaves of<br />

some unrecognized plant hiding under<br />

the dry leaves, a freshly dug hole or<br />

tunnel belonging to a rabbit or other<br />

small animal. He would point to a bird,<br />

telling me its name and how it built its<br />

nest and try to imitate its call.<br />

When we had walked for what<br />

seemed to me like miles and miles, my<br />

father sat down abruptly on a log and<br />

By Eileen Cade-Edwards<br />

From <strong>Daytripping</strong> March -April 2000<br />

motioned to me to join him.<br />

“This is what we have come for,” he<br />

said. “But we must be absolutely quiet.<br />

Not a sound!”<br />

I looked around for something<br />

unusual, but there was nothing. Nothing<br />

I hadn’t seen many times before. There<br />

were the purple, green striped hoods of<br />

skunk cabbage pushing up through the<br />

web of water-logged twigs and broken<br />

branches and the beginning of ferns<br />

coming up around last year’s dry fronds<br />

—nothing more!<br />

“I don’t see anything,” I whispered.<br />

“Listen!” cautioned my father in a<br />

whisper. But all I could hear were a few<br />

crickets chirping a long way off.<br />

Presently my father began advancing<br />

cautiously towards the dark swampwater<br />

pools where stark, leafless trees<br />

stood silently on guard. Suddenly he<br />

stopped. “Listen!” he whispered again<br />

“Don’t you hear something?”<br />

I listened. “Crickets,” I said, for all I<br />

could hear were hundreds of crickets<br />

going up and down the scale, in the<br />

distance.<br />

“No. Not crickets. It’s much too early<br />

for crickets.” My father pressed a finger<br />

against his lips. “Be patient.<br />

Almost at once I heard a sweet trilling<br />

sound. Then another and another —not<br />

from the trees or high in the bushes, but<br />

low down by my feet. Waves of sweet<br />

music swept across the swamp until the<br />

whole black, oozy ground was singing!<br />

Young as I was, I was deeply stirred.<br />

Here was something strange and very<br />

beautiful. Something that no one had<br />

ever mentioned or described to me. I<br />

looked at my father for an explanation.<br />

“It’s the April Frog-Chorus,” he said,<br />

smiling at me fondly. “And you will only<br />

hear it in April because after the frogs<br />

have mated, they resort to their natural<br />

croaking voices.”<br />

We Iistened for a long time and when,<br />

finally, we moved to go, the chorus<br />

stopped instantly. It was as if it had<br />

been cut through with a sharp knife. But<br />

it would continue after we left my father<br />

assured me.<br />

All the way home I could hear<br />

that hauntingly beautiful chorus in<br />

my head. And I was happy, almost<br />

overwhelmingly so, for somehow, in<br />

some strange and wonderful way, it<br />

seemed that a door had opened for me<br />

into a new and secret understanding<br />

into one of nature’s precious secrets.<br />

Emotions People Feel,<br />

But Can’t Explain...<br />

The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is a compendium of invented<br />

words written by John Koenig. Each original definition aims to fill a<br />

hole in the language - to give a name to emotions we all might<br />

experience but don’t yet have a word for.<br />

Find more at... www.dictionaryofobscuresorrows.com<br />

1) Sonder: The realization that each passerby has a life as vivid and<br />

complex as your own.<br />

2) Opia: The ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which<br />

can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable.<br />

3) Monachopsis: The subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.<br />

4) Énouement: The bittersweetness of having arrived in the future,<br />

seeing how things turn out, but not being able to tell your past self.<br />

5) Vellichor: The strange wistfulness of used bookshops.<br />

6) Rubatosis: The unsettling awareness of your own heartbeat.<br />

7) Kenopsia: The eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that is usually<br />

bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet.<br />

8) Mauerbauertraurigkeit: The inexplicable urge to push people away,<br />

even close friends who you really like.<br />

9) Jouska: A hypothetical conversation that you compulsively play out in<br />

your head.<br />

10) Chrysalism: The amniotic tranquility of being indoors during<br />

thunderstorm.<br />

11) Vemödalen: The frustration of photographic something amazing<br />

when thousands of identical photos already exist.<br />

12) Anecdoche: A conversation in which everyone is talking, but nobody<br />

is listening.<br />

13) Ellipsism: A sadness that you’ll never be able to know how history<br />

will turn out.<br />

14) Kuebiko: A state of exhaustion inspired by acts of senseless violence.<br />

15) Lachesism: The desire to be struck by disaster — to survive a plane<br />

crash, or to lose everything in a fire.<br />

16) Exulansis: The tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience<br />

because people are unable to relate to it.<br />

17) Adronitis: Frustration with how long it takes to get to know someone.<br />

18) Rückkehrunruhe: The feeling of returning home after an immersive<br />

trip only to find it fading rapidly from your awareness.<br />

19) Nodus Tollens: The realization that the plot of your life doesn’t make<br />

sense to you anymore.<br />

20) Onism: The frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits<br />

only one place at a time.<br />

21) Liberosis: The desire to care less about things.<br />

22) Altschmerz: Weariness with the same old issues that you’ve always<br />

had — the same boring flaws and anxieties that you’ve been<br />

gnawing on for years.<br />

23) Occhiolism: The awareness of the smallness of your perspective.<br />

Mind Your<br />

Ps and Qs<br />

Refers to being on<br />

being careful of your language.<br />

There are a few ideas of where this<br />

originated. Many believe it’s in<br />

reference to pints and quarts in<br />

pubs, which had to be kept track of<br />

to tell the difference in orders.<br />

Another plausible origin is in<br />

reference to children learning their<br />

lowercase letters, and p and q being<br />

quite similar. Another refers to<br />

jackets (peas) and wigs (queues).<br />

Dad ’s Baby Ring<br />

...ST. MARYS, CLINTON, CENTRAL HURON & SEAFORTH<br />

Like all woman I own several pieces of<br />

jewellery. Most are costume, necklaces<br />

and earrings for everyday wear.<br />

Of course I have a few pieces of<br />

fine jewellery, most heirloom which<br />

have been passed down in the family,<br />

sometimes for many generations,<br />

sometimes only a generation or two.<br />

My family has never been rich so<br />

even my ‘fine’ jewellery is not worth<br />

thousands of dollars if it was ever<br />

sold, which I would never do. I feel the<br />

connection with my ancestors when I<br />

wear my vintage necklace or bracelet,<br />

one from each side of the family.<br />

Both of those pieces of jewellery are<br />

beautiful to look at and worth more<br />

from a monetary standpoint but, my<br />

favourite heirloom piece is my dad’s<br />

baby ring.<br />

When my father was a young<br />

boy, more than eighty years ago, my<br />

grandparents got him a signet ring, like<br />

they had for my Uncle William a few<br />

years before.<br />

The ring was simple but elegant,<br />

Dad’s initials engraved in a<br />

thin gold circle, set into the<br />

sterling silver ring. The first<br />

time I saw the ring,<br />

many decades later,<br />

the engraving and<br />

most of the gold<br />

had long been worn<br />

away.<br />

Dad had worn<br />

the ring on his<br />

index finger as a<br />

child, when I slip<br />

By Vicki Hornick,<br />

Tilbury<br />

it onto my pinkie (the only finger it will<br />

fit) sometimes it pinches terribly where<br />

the band is broken.<br />

It’s hard for me to imagine Dad’s<br />

hands ever being that small. Dad’s<br />

wedding band fits my thumb and I can<br />

spin it like a hula-hoop. To think of the<br />

baby ring fitting a child’s tiny hand and<br />

that tiny child was my father seems<br />

almost a miracle.<br />

I’ve grown to value the ring not just<br />

as a family heirloom but also as a sort<br />

of talisman. It is even more important<br />

to me since the recent passing of my<br />

father at the age of ninety.<br />

Whenever I’m going into a situation<br />

where I feel the need for a bit of extra self<br />

confidence, I wear Dad’s ‘baby ring,’ and I<br />

feel Dad is with me, backing me up. With<br />

the ring on my finger, and the memory of<br />

how my father believed in me, I can face<br />

anything or anyone and I can accomplish<br />

anything I put my mind to.<br />

With memories and the bit of his<br />

strength he left me in his ring, even<br />

though Dad isn’t here in<br />

body he will be with me<br />

in spirit for the rest of my<br />

life. I know how good a<br />

father I had as I think<br />

back on the years of<br />

my life.<br />

Leaving even<br />

one person<br />

behind who feels<br />

that way is to have<br />

lived a good life<br />

and Dad raised ten<br />

children.<br />

A new teacher was trying to make use of her psychology<br />

they’re stupid, stand up!” After a few seconds, Little Davie<br />

stood up. the teacher said, “Do you think you’re stupid, Little<br />

Davie?” “No, ma’am but I hate to see you standing there all by<br />

yourself!”<br />

A Mother’s Day Poem<br />

(My Private Wish)<br />

By Lois Bertram<br />

Submitted by<br />

Robert T. Baxter, Strathroy<br />

This is a poem my<br />

mother found in a newspaper.<br />

Her mother died<br />

around age 28 when my<br />

mom was 13. She had a<br />

slip and fall accident -<br />

my mother held her head<br />

in her lap when she died.<br />

My mom took over<br />

running the house and<br />

raising her 4 siblings.<br />

Her and her mother were<br />

very close and she<br />

missed her very much.<br />

My mother found this<br />

when she was in her 70s.<br />

Robert T. Baxter<br />

I wish to see a mountain view—<br />

A southern moon, a foreign place.<br />

But if I had one wish come true,<br />

‘twould be to see my mother’s face.<br />

Or maybe for a little while,<br />

We could sit and have some tea.<br />

A time to speak of all the things,<br />

That fate had chosen not to be.<br />

I’d thank her for the years we had,<br />

Lord knows they were very few.<br />

I was young, so carefree then,<br />

And had so many things to do.<br />

How precious every moment,<br />

If she could come and visit me.<br />

My Lefthanded, Backwards,<br />

Upsidedown Life & Assorted Short Stories<br />

It Was the Best of Times to Grow Up<br />

So, I’m a baby boomer…I was born<br />

on a dark and stormy night in December<br />

1952. In the old days, I’d have been right<br />

at the end of the baby boomers, but now<br />

they’ve sort of extended it and there are<br />

more baby boomers than there used to be.<br />

Of course, the folks who are runnin’ the<br />

world these days—mostly young folks—<br />

absolutely can’t leave anything alone.<br />

Like I think they’ve dumped Daylight<br />

Savings Time when I wasn’t looking…<br />

or maybe they dumped the other one.<br />

Anyway, we might not have to change our<br />

clocks anymore…and I hated changing<br />

my clocks, but it was just something you<br />

always did…why change it?<br />

Of course, from the perspective of<br />

an old guy—a gnarly old codger—most<br />

everything on the planet seems to be in<br />

a bit of a mess these days. Yea, we’re<br />

overpopulated and overpolluted and over<br />

this and over that…but we’re strugglin’<br />

along, careening from crisis to crisis in<br />

the same way we always have since the<br />

beginning of recorded history. We’re not<br />

good at long range planning…we just sort<br />

of fumble along, sometimes staggering<br />

remarkably close to the edge, but always,<br />

never quite toppling over.<br />

Yea, I was born and raised in the small<br />

town of Hanover and still have the fondest<br />

regards for that community. Growing up in<br />

Hanover back in the really old days was<br />

sort of like growing up in Mayberry. You<br />

know, where Andy Griffith and Don Knotts<br />

were the police department, every boy in<br />

town owned a BB gun and there was roller<br />

skating in the summer and ice skating<br />

in the winter. We watched John Wayne<br />

and Audie Murphy save the free world at<br />

the Paramount Theatre every Saturday<br />

afternoon. It surely seemed like a simpler<br />

time when things were more cut and dried.<br />

You know, we spent most of our time<br />

as young people growing up in Hanover<br />

complaining about how bored we were.<br />

Only now, as I watch today’s young<br />

people on their devices, do I realize what a<br />

richness of activity I grew up in the middle<br />

of. We had our ice and roller skating, there<br />

By John Gardiner<br />

The following is an excerpt from “My Lefthanded,<br />

Backwards, Upsidedown Life & Assorted Short Stories”<br />

by Wallaceburg writer John Gardiner, who grew up and<br />

came of age in Hanover, Ontario during the 1950’s and<br />

1960’s. In this memoir, Gardiner tells the story of his<br />

growing-up years with a series of colourful anecdotes<br />

about the way life used to be. More of the writer’s work<br />

is available at www.johngardinerstories.com or by<br />

contacting the author at gardiner@kent.net.<br />

was the bowling alley, the pool room, the<br />

show, a couple of restaurants to act as after<br />

school hangouts. The churches in town ran<br />

“coffee houses” for teens and there were<br />

dances going on all the time. I played in<br />

a band when I was a young guy—and,<br />

actually, still do—and we were busy all the<br />

time because there were always dances<br />

and parties and stuff.<br />

We grew up in a golden period to be<br />

a young person. My parents never really<br />

got to be teenagers because they grew up<br />

during the Great Depression and the war;<br />

my dad always thought he was extremely<br />

lucky because he was just too young to<br />

actually be in the war, but was old enough<br />

to share in the prosperity that came after<br />

the war. Our generation not only didn’t<br />

have to endure a depression or a war, but<br />

really also got to share in the prosperity of<br />

the 1950’s, 1960’s and early 1970’s, when<br />

the world seemed filled with hope and<br />

anything seemed possible.<br />

These days, the world seems<br />

enormously complicated and difficult to<br />

navigate in. But I’m kinda thinkin’ that<br />

just might be me getting to be an old guy.<br />

I suppose it’s only natural to feel that your<br />

generation grew up in the best of times—<br />

had the best music, movies, TV shows,<br />

books and cars and everything else. I think<br />

each generation sort of feels like that about<br />

the times they grew up and came of age in.<br />

But that won’t stop me thinking that<br />

my generation was the one that had the<br />

absolute best of everything as we passed<br />

along through life. I’ve had a great run<br />

through life and have somehow ended up<br />

with some really old children and a whole<br />

passle of not-so-old grandchildren…not<br />

really sure how it happened, but extremely<br />

glad it did. It is, however, exceptionally<br />

strange to be the same age as old people.<br />

Anyway, be well and stay safe out there,<br />

or as the guy on Hill Street Blues used to<br />

say, “Be careful out there, because life can<br />

throw some really challenging curves at<br />

you.”<br />

I sometimes say, “Be good, and if you<br />

can’t be good, then be careful.”<br />

By Chrisne Tizzard<br />

Asparagus Tips<br />

Rule #1<br />

Keep the rubber band on to<br />

hold the bunch together, and<br />

trim an inch off the root ends<br />

of the asparagus. This part is<br />

woody and not great to eat.<br />

Rule #2<br />

Treat asparagus like fresh-cut<br />

flowers. Store in fridge in a<br />

small vase (or jar) with root<br />

ends submerged in water.<br />

Rule #3<br />

Loosely cover asparagus with a<br />

plasc bag in the refrigerator<br />

to make it last for up to a week.<br />

If the water looks cloudy, just<br />

change it as needed.<br />

Did you know that in<br />

Canada, the most<br />

predominately wasted<br />

food by weight is<br />

produce at 45%?<br />

(30% being veggies and<br />

15% being fruit)<br />

Strawberry Tips<br />

Rule #1<br />

Moisture is the enemy! Wash as needed.<br />

Do not store wet berries in your fridge. If<br />

you MUST wash them when you get<br />

home, wash and then lay them out on a<br />

clean tea towel to dry first.<br />

Rule #2<br />

Inspect your berries. Remove any mushy<br />

mouldy fruit, since the spores will spread.<br />

Rule #3<br />

Give them some space for goodness sake!<br />

Strawberries like to breathe, so they will<br />

last longer if stored in a container where<br />

they are dry and not all crammed on top<br />

of each other.<br />

Zero Waste Tip:<br />

If you like to wash your berries as soon as<br />

you get home for easier snacking, you<br />

CAN soak your berries in a simple 1 part<br />

vinegar to 3 parts cold water for a minute<br />

or two. However, drain and DRY them<br />

very well by laying them out on clean tea<br />

towels for at least 30 minutes before<br />

storing them using Rule #3. This<br />

vinegar-water soluon can also extend<br />

the life of your berries in the fridge.<br />

The Library<br />

By Susan Iedema, London<br />

When the weather is such that<br />

spending more time inside is desirable, I<br />

am always on the lookout for new ideas<br />

for indoor activities. And, as I have done<br />

in the past for other situations, I am sure<br />

I will utilize the resources available to<br />

me at my local library.<br />

I recall my mom and me walking to<br />

the library in the small town where I grew<br />

up and that is where I was introduced<br />

to the mystery novels of Phyllis A.<br />

Whitney. Romance was always woven<br />

into her stories and vivid descriptions<br />

were given of the locales around the<br />

world where they took place. My love<br />

of her books led me to purchase some<br />

of her novels and a few have survived<br />

numerous downsizing episodes to grace<br />

a place in my bookcase. Over time,<br />

the memory of the story fades and I<br />

am able to reread and experience the<br />

mystery anew. Books can take me to<br />

faraway places, away from my troubles<br />

and cares.<br />

Years ago, a decision to apply for a<br />

different job had me visiting my local<br />

library branch in search of the latest book<br />

on how to write a resume and covering<br />

letter. As a result, I got the job! When<br />

the internet and online job postings<br />

took hold, I once again headed to the<br />

library. This time, I took advantage of the<br />

computers and other resources available<br />

for job hunting.<br />

As I became interested in leading a<br />

simpler life, I would peruse the library<br />

shelves and catalogues looking for<br />

books on the subject. A course about<br />

slowing down and getting away from<br />

consumerism was also offered at the<br />

downtown central branch and I signed<br />

up. This course introduced me to<br />

likeminded people who provided me<br />

with more direction and guidance as<br />

well as a list of additional books that<br />

would assist me in my quest. I would try<br />

to find these books at the library first. If<br />

I felt one was something I should have<br />

at home for a reference, I could always<br />

purchase it later.<br />

Libraries and all they have to offer<br />

are a perfect fit with a simpler life. It’s<br />

a place where communities can share<br />

resources and information. Being that<br />

they are located in the community,<br />

many times I have been able to walk,<br />

cycle or take public transit to my nearest<br />

branch or visit one on my lunch hour<br />

when at work. Or, if travelling by car, I<br />

could time my visit with other errands.<br />

Some other items and services I have<br />

made use of over the years at the library<br />

are, a writing workshop, a photocopier,<br />

the community events bulletin board,<br />

walking and cycling maps as well as<br />

magazines and newspapers. I even<br />

found that wonderful paper there,<br />

<strong>Daytripping</strong> in Southwestern Ontario!<br />

These days, before heading to the<br />

library, I can search online from home<br />

for books or resources I am interested<br />

in. My choice to do without cable TV<br />

has led me to find numerous DVD’s<br />

available there, especially the murder<br />

mysteries I like.<br />

I am glad I have a library card and<br />

am grateful for my local public library<br />

and all it has to offer. I foresee a season<br />

of indoor activities filled with mystery!<br />

Parks and many other perks as well.<br />

MI<br />

ONTARIO<br />

By Liz Underhill, Vienna<br />

Battle of the Bulge<br />

Dieting fills the air! I realized I had to<br />

do something about the few little bulges<br />

that have somehow appeared from<br />

tasting all the goodies that I snitched<br />

when I thought no one was looking. I’d<br />

rather be naughty than nice.<br />

I started a diet routine, and I tried, I<br />

really did, but those little portions on my<br />

plate looked more like fly specks than<br />

real food. How can such a small offering<br />

fill the yearning that my stomach is<br />

telling me I deserve? The only thing that<br />

quenched that was a double helping<br />

of Pralines and Cream at Scoops Ice<br />

Cream Parlor.<br />

My friend Pheenie suggested I try<br />

going to the local gym for exercise. I<br />

told her that wouldn’t work because I<br />

didn’t like torture. My idea of exercise<br />

is to take my cat on a leash and cruise<br />

up and down on the sidewalk in front of<br />

my house.<br />

Pheenie said if I wanted to<br />

lose those drooping love<br />

handles, I would have to<br />

either starve or do some<br />

exercise or both. She said<br />

there was a class at the<br />

Y offering Low Impact<br />

exercising especially for ‘the<br />

older crowd.’<br />

After a few days of pondering,<br />

I convinced myself that it<br />

wouldn’t hurt to try something<br />

that was for the older crowd—that<br />

would mean it would be easy and I am<br />

always looking for the easy.<br />

Trust me. LOW IMPACT is a lie! There<br />

was nothing low impact about the way<br />

I hit the floor when I lifted my legs and<br />

placed them down. I swear the muscles<br />

and fat on my calves did the twist all by<br />

themselves and not in slow motion. I’ll<br />

have bruises for life. I just know I will!<br />

How do people keep up with that<br />

stuff? The class did ten side-by-sides<br />

by the time I did one. The leader said<br />

to go at your own speed. The music<br />

got louder. The pace accelerated. I was<br />

pooped already. I sank to my knees, a<br />

fuzziness rolling in.<br />

In the distance, I could vaguely hear<br />

a voice shouting over the loud speaker.<br />

“Breathe in and out - in and out - keep<br />

the rhythm.” Were they crazy? Who<br />

cared about any rhythm? If I survive this<br />

I’ll take their rhythm and stuff it, and the<br />

impact won’t be low either, I promised<br />

myself as the lights went out.<br />

When I came to, I found<br />

myself still on my knees,<br />

in a praying position,<br />

facing the door marked<br />

exit. I figured someone<br />

must have dragged me<br />

there when I was out of<br />

it. I found a sign around my<br />

neck that said: “Try Yoga.”<br />

And how was your day?<br />

A Tear of a Child!<br />

By Kristin Legault-Donkers, St. Thomas • From <strong>Daytripping</strong> Nov.-Dec. 2011<br />

This is a true story that I experienced<br />

when I was only nine years old. This story<br />

occurred on the dates July 15th, 2007 and<br />

on July 16th, 2007.<br />

July 15, 2007 - “Honey, I think it’s<br />

time for you to go to bed. You have a<br />

long day ahead of you,” my Mom said<br />

to me.<br />

“Mommy! Can I stay up a little bit<br />

longer? Please Mommy!” I begged.<br />

“No, I think you need to go to sleep”<br />

my Mom told me.<br />

“… But I like this show.” I told her. I<br />

just started to watch Franklin.<br />

“No, you are going to bed, and that is<br />

final!” she raised her voice a bit. “Now<br />

turn off the T.V,” she told me.<br />

“NO!” I yelled at her. I did not want to<br />

turn off the T.V or go to bed and I made<br />

it obvious.<br />

“We don’t yell!” she told me. “What<br />

happens when we yell?” she asked me.<br />

“I don’t know!” I yelled at her again.<br />

“When you yell at mommy, there are<br />

consequences.” She firmly said to me.<br />

“Because you yelled at me, you’re going<br />

to bed 5 minutes earlier tomorrow<br />

night. Okay?” She was setting down<br />

the rules and I didn’t like that. “Now,<br />

you need to go to bed!” she demanded.<br />

“And if you’re not in your bed before I<br />

count to 10, then I’ll be adding another<br />

5 minutes.” she added. My Mom started<br />

to count. “1…” she counted, “2…” she<br />

counted, “3…” she counted, “4…” she<br />

counted, “5…” she counted. “I’m halfway<br />

there. You had better get in your<br />

bed before I reach 10” she told me. I<br />

was furious. It was only 7:30. Why did<br />

I have to go to bed? Why could I not<br />

stay up a little bit longer? I rushed to my<br />

room, and slammed the door.<br />

“I hate you!” I yelled to my Mom.<br />

“You’re the worst Mom ever!” I added.<br />

By 8:30, I was calmed down and<br />

almost asleep. I hugged my teddy bear<br />

and, finally, I fell asleep.<br />

July 16th, 2007 - It was now 4:00 in<br />

the morning. My Grandmaman headed<br />

to my bed, quietly sitting down beside<br />

me. Tears were dripping down from<br />

her eyes and onto my bed. “It’s time<br />

to wake up, Kristin,” Grandmaman told<br />

me, as she rubbed my back. I woke up,<br />

and I was surprised to see her. Why was<br />

Grandmaman here? I thought.<br />

“Where’s my Mom?” I asked her.<br />

Grandmaman was hesitant to answer.<br />

“She’s…..” Grandmaman said, not<br />

being able to say her complete thought.<br />

“Come down stairs, when you’re<br />

dressed,” she told me.<br />

Therefore, I got out of bed and headed<br />

to my dresser. I grabbed a pair of yoga<br />

pants, and an old sweatshirt and quickly<br />

put it on, and I headed down the stairs.<br />

There I saw two police officers, three<br />

paramedics, and a fire fighter. They<br />

were all standing in a somewhat semicircle<br />

format in the kitchen. One officer<br />

was comforting my Grandmaman.<br />

“What’s going on? Where’s my<br />

Mom?” I asked. I was clueless. No<br />

one would tell me what was going on.<br />

Thoughts kept on rushing through my<br />

mind. Would you be scared if you knew<br />

something was not quite right, but no<br />

one would tell you what it was? … Sure,<br />

you would.<br />

It was not until I was out of the house,<br />

4683 Sunset Road, Port Stanley • 519-782-4052 • www.moorewatergardens.com<br />

and at my Grandmaman’s, that I was<br />

informed that my Mom had passed<br />

away. She had had a heart attack during<br />

the night, and had difficulties breathing.<br />

I remember dropping to my knees.<br />

Minutes later, my family had decided<br />

that it would be in my best interest,<br />

if I did not go to visit my Mom in the<br />

hospital, as it would be too difficult for<br />

a young child to see her mother dying.<br />

I remember yelling, “Why can’t I come<br />

too?” as Grandmaman and Grandpapa<br />

went out the door and drove away. They<br />

were going to see the last of my Mom.<br />

Tears continued to drip down my<br />

eyes, for days. I was not in a good<br />

emotional state. I remember yelling and<br />

screaming constantly. I felt like a failure.<br />

The words I said to my Mom the night<br />

the she had passed away were horrific,<br />

and now having lost her, I wish I would<br />

never had said them.<br />

I would like to conclude by saying<br />

how much I appreciate all that my Mom<br />

has done for me. As a child, I demanded<br />

a lot from her. She was a<br />

single mom, and I didn’t<br />

realize that she was trying<br />

her best to be the best<br />

parent that she could be.<br />

She provided good food,<br />

nice clothes, a roof over<br />

my head, education, and<br />

private tutoring for me, as I<br />

struggled in school with my<br />

math.<br />

Not to forget, she was<br />

always there for me,<br />

whenever I needed her. She<br />

loved and supported me<br />

and I will never forget her! Sometimes<br />

you don’t realize how lucky you are, until<br />

it is taken away from you. I would also<br />

like to thank some other very important<br />

people in my life. I never would have<br />

CTV News London<br />

been able to share my feelings to others<br />

that are outside of my family, about my<br />

Mom’s death without the help of family<br />

and friends.<br />

I would like to say a special thank<br />

you to my father and my grandparents.<br />

Also, I would like to say thank you to<br />

my fabulous grade seven teacher, Mrs.<br />

Anne Gray-Hiddink. Thanks for being<br />

there for me, through thick and thin.<br />

And also to Mrs. Jane-Anne House, for<br />

helping me catch up in my math and<br />

for ensuring other academic successes.<br />

I have a bright future ahead of me and<br />

I know that I’m going to reach the stars<br />

and do great things, because I have<br />

one thing that many children who are<br />

struggling don’t have... a brilliant and<br />

supportive family, that will never let me<br />

down. I will never forget my Mom.<br />

Publisher’s note: Kristin ended her life<br />

on March 11th, <strong>2022</strong> at the age of 25 after<br />

a courageous and publicly hard-fought<br />

battle with her mental illness. We’re<br />

reprinting this article with the blessing of<br />

Kristin’s family. She was only<br />

13 when she sent this article<br />

to us and we had to contact<br />

her to make sure she wanted<br />

it to run. <strong>Daytripping</strong> was<br />

her first “paid” gig as a writer<br />

and contributor but she went<br />

on to much greater things.<br />

Kristin became an outspoken<br />

advocate for mental health<br />

and critic of the bureaucracy<br />

of the system that she fought<br />

A Friend<br />

By Spokeshave<br />

A friend is a person, you might meet one day,<br />

When you're least expecting, as you travel, your way.<br />

A friend will be loyal, and always be true,<br />

This person, this friend, will be there for you.<br />

In times when you're troubled, all hope seems to die,<br />

A friend is the one, you'll find standing by.<br />

They'll give you a boost, when you stumble and fall,<br />

They'll compliment you, and make you feel tall,<br />

Come See<br />

What ’s New!<br />

Covid had us all in its ugly grip.<br />

People were staying home, afraid to<br />

venture out. For months I looked out<br />

my front window at the same view. The<br />

only thing that varied was the change<br />

of seasons.<br />

May had sprung forth, beautifully<br />

green, with bountiful blossoms and<br />

already mid-July temperatures. We had<br />

a week’s vacation while radios blared<br />

words like a staycation. Crikey! We had<br />

been down this road twice in 2020!<br />

The museums, theatres and other<br />

venues were still closed, and we weren’t<br />

sure where we could go. Frustration<br />

and boredom set in. We were tired of<br />

walking the dog on the streets of our<br />

neighbourhood. We decided to go for a<br />

hike. So we took a short drive to explore<br />

places we had never visited before.<br />

Our selection was Lake Margaret in<br />

St. Thomas. Not knowing what to expect<br />

when we arrived, we wore long pants<br />

and sleeves, prepared for anything.<br />

Only to be surprised by a 2.6-kilometre<br />

loop trail that was mainly a paved affair<br />

and wide enough for social distancing.<br />

Lake Margaret was already busy at<br />

ten in the morning with bikers, joggers<br />

and walkers of various ages, all with<br />

smiles and calling out greetings.<br />

The day had started cloudy, and<br />

we were slightly disappointed with<br />

the cloud cover, but shortly into the<br />

walk, the sun broke through, and Lake<br />

Margaret transformed. The slate grey<br />

waters turned blue, and the green<br />

foliage took on a brighter appearance.<br />

The trunks of birch trees stood stark<br />

against the backdrop of the calm waters,<br />

as different birds species trilled to their<br />

heart’s content. Once a gravel pit, this<br />

small lake was breathtakingly beautiful.<br />

The Perfumed Path<br />

As we continued, we found narrow<br />

offshoot trails that were a little rougher<br />

in terrain that looped around two<br />

smaller ponds. We spotted an aerie<br />

high up on a long pole where a hawk<br />

nested. Turtles sat on nursing logs in<br />

the sun while the bullfrogs croaked out<br />

a chorus. Canada Geese spread their<br />

large wings, airing them out like one<br />

would air out carpets on a clothesline.<br />

A muskrat sat on the banks of one<br />

pond and slipped into the water at our<br />

approach. Mallard ducks swam serenely<br />

on the lake, dipping their beaks into the<br />

water as their tail feathers remained<br />

above the surface.<br />

Lake Margaret is a 14.2 hectare,<br />

Tips<br />

for a<br />

5Woman<br />

1. It is important that a man<br />

helps you around the house.<br />

2. It is important that a man<br />

makes you laugh.<br />

3. It is important to find a man<br />

you can count on and who doesn’t<br />

lie to you.<br />

4. It is important that a man<br />

loves you and spoils you.<br />

5. It is important that these four men<br />

don’t know each other.<br />

clear body of water with a depth of 8<br />

metres, home to small and largemouth<br />

bass. South of the lake is agricultural<br />

land. The trail to the east wanders into<br />

a subdivision and continues back into<br />

the forested area to the north. Beautiful<br />

Pinafore Park lies northwest of the lake,<br />

with dirt trails meandering into the<br />

forest linking Lake Margaret and the<br />

park.<br />

Tall Carolinian trees canopied the<br />

dirt trails as squirrels and chipmunks<br />

scampered in the underbrush.<br />

Surrounding all this beauty were<br />

wildflowers. Wild Cranesbill dotted<br />

the forest floor. Coming back toward<br />

the lake, we admired mauve and pink<br />

Photo Credit: Ontario’s Southwest<br />

Phlox. On the banks of the lake grew<br />

wild Irises, bright yellow against the<br />

green grasses. Lily pads floated on<br />

the surface of the lake, with the sun<br />

reflected off their watery flora.<br />

What captured us most was the<br />

scent. People stopped to remark on the<br />

fragrant smell. We discovered Japanese<br />

Honeysuckle growing wild all along the<br />

perimeter of the pathway and near the<br />

shores of the lake. White and yellow<br />

blooms perfumed the now humid and<br />

hot air with a light, floral aroma. What<br />

a delight!<br />

Fall had arrived, and we decided to<br />

go back to Lake Margaret for another<br />

walk. We parked in Pinafore Park, with<br />

splendid playgrounds, splash pads and<br />

public washrooms. We took a dirt trail<br />

into the woods and came out onto the<br />

paved pathway, and joined a group of<br />

dog walkers. Dogs must remain on their<br />

leashes according to the signs posted.<br />

This time there was a different scent<br />

around the lake. It was the fragrance of<br />

fall. A nutty, spicy smell permeated our<br />

walk. Mustard coloured Goldenrod, and<br />

the delicate white blooms of Queen<br />

Anne’s Lace replaced wild Irises,<br />

Cranesbill and Phlox.<br />

In the past, there was a ban on<br />

boating and fishing on the lake, but<br />

as of May 2021, the St. Thomas city<br />

council approved non-motorized<br />

watercraft and fishing. Now, the lake<br />

sported kayaks as they silently slipped<br />

by, soaking up the stunning wilderness<br />

just beyond the city limits.<br />

To us Covid-fatigued city dwellers,<br />

both of our trips to Lake Margaret were<br />

a delight to the senses with its visual<br />

beauty, the sounds of wildlife, and<br />

walks along the perfumed paths.<br />
