...never to leave home without my camera. You never know when something will happen that deserves to be preserved . Last nite, I picked up Ute and headed into Thessalon for the monthly fish fry at the Legion and we were stopping first at Cal and Sal's for a cocktail. We walked in and Sally was sitting at her organ playing a tune. I have never heard her play before and she was very good. Ute sings in a choir so Sally asked her if she would sing a song with her playing. She requested "Those Were The Days My Friend" her favourite song. Sally started playing it on the organ and Ute was right beside her belting out the song. It was great. I can't sing but I tried to join in the Those Were The Days refrain - I was inspired. I wish I had my camera with me to get a picture of the two of them. They both had great smiles and were thoroughly enjoying themselves. Cal was enjoying it as well. After our drink we headed over to the Legion and joined the Axe Lake group of Arnold, Linda, John, Bob and his son Carson and Diane. The food was delicious as usual. You never get a bad meal. And the people are so friendly. Everyone knows each other and it is part of the whole social thing standing in line talking to everyone. A good time was had by all.
I was home by 8:30.
See Ya Bye

Well, now...I didn't know you could belt out a tune, Ute!!!! That was one of my mom's favourite songs - a great one, that's for sure!

Yes a great song, a great reminder of the good old days. I can see why Ute and Barbara-Anne's Mom would choose it as a favourite. It's on my list
