Family walk through the old town
While my family and I went to visit the old town, my husband had to go look fortubular lead acid batteries Toronto. Don’t ask me what those are, because it’s beyond my comprehension. He did try to explain something to me about them, but it was much too technical for me. I only wished to know why he could not join us, not the whole process of manufacturing, processing or replacement. But knowing my husband was a very savvy guy on this field, I did not mind his attempt of teaching me a bit of work. I let him talk for two minutes, then I asked him to stop. It was pointless. I told him I loved him and gave him a kiss.
My parents and I got off in the old town on Oakwood street and walked around for a few hours. It was their first visit to Toronto. They have been to Canada before, but they always stayed in Montreal with my younger sister. I had to go see them there.
This time, they decided to come stay with us for two weeks and I am extremely happy about it. I have planned to take them everywhere. We already went to the Niagara Falls, and stopped at one winery on the way back. My dad loved the ice wine they had in there. Actually he loved it so much that he bought ten bottles. Eight for him to enjoy during his visit here, and two to take home, to give them to his best friend.
I promised him that I would bring him some more during my four days trip to my home country, in July or August. As I did not decide yet the date of the trip, I could not tell him a precise day. He was happy to hear that. He added that he would share one bottle with his friend, instead of giving it to him.
I started to laugh. Only dad could come up with such a silly comment. He made me think of my youngest son, who was just like him. He always had an explanation for anything. Even for the tiniest thing he would say something silly or funny. I guess the chip doesn’t fall far from the tree. It’s true, it skipped a generation, but it’s all there, condensed within the small body of a six years old, bubbling with energy and questions about the world.
