It has been awhile since I last posted on this work site across from Dundonald Park. Sure enough, a somewhat larger beer store replaced the one that had been torn down, while a Tim Hortons occupies the new building to the west. Both opened in November. I prefer the third view looking across the park, with these shots taken after one of our snowfalls. I don't drink, so I won't go in the one shop, and I don't care for coffee or doughnuts, so why would I go into Tims? This, in a country where the company tries to brand itself as the very essence of Canadian. Note to Tims (and this is going to get me blacklisted by Tims) ~ no matter how many times you put together endless Marketing Chimp authorized sugar sweet hockey parents hauling their rugrats around in the early hours feel-good commercials passing yourself off as the ultimate in Canadiana, you're not.
After all, the true essence of being Canadian is knowing how to make love in a canoe.
