For those not living in Ontario, Family Day is a new holiday our Premier Dalton McGuinty introduced a couple of years ago to distract the voters from all the lies and broken promises and disappointments we’ve been plagued with since he was elected. I won’t get into it, since it would take me hours to write out the list, but suffice to say this is one of the few things he’d done right. Me, I only have my Dad, so most holidays are pretty much meaningless anyway, except to remind me of the things in life I do not have. Nonetheless, I met Dad for a coffee at the local coffee shop and we went for a chilly walk through the neighbourhood, which was nice. He’s on his way to Florida for a couple of weeks as of tomorrow. So Happy Family Day, Ontario. This photo was taken Christmas day as two men and a boy (looked like three generations) sat at the end of the Leuty Lighthouse Pier watching the crashing waves batter the shoreline.
