Hello Mickey et al!
Thanks for a great Remembrance Day blog and for visiting us.
Mum and Grandma LOVE Nova Scotia and hope to visit again in May. They saw the cenotaph and thought it was beautiful in a sad sort of way.
We hope the remnants of Noel didn't hit N.S. too hard.
Take care and we're sending belly rubs your way.
