Re: PICTURE POST II!

The store where I work doesn't have Christmas stuff out yet, but will soon enough. We were slammed last week because the university kids had descended upon the city and were buying bedding, kitchenware, electronics, and the like. Good for business, but it felt like the week before Christmas. This week's been calmer, thankfully.

Back in April I visited my dad just west of Toronto with my two sons. A friend of mine has her private pilot's licence, but she's been grounded for health reasons. However, she'd very kindly arranged for a flight instructor friend of hers to take my boys and me for a flight from Buttonville Airport, just north of Toronto. This photo is from when we literally circuited around the CN Tower. Normally I'm fine with flying, but four-seater planes set off my height nerve and vertigo and scare the crap out of me. There's no better way of getting a view of the city, though, and my boys loved it.
