I debated putting this photo up, I mean, look at that bump on the photo lower right. But then I figured, if it didn't bother Victoria, it shouldn't bother me. Hopefully it was just the couch she was sitting on. It is a framed photo I found in my great-grandmother's papers which now unceremoniously resides on Violinist's bedroom bookshelf, between a Bart Simpson figurine and James Herriot - a Remembrance Day poppy stuck into the frame.
This is Victoria Day Weekend or The May 24th Weekend, wherein Canadians celebrate the birth of Queen Victoria, born May 24, 1819. The holiday, celebrated the Monday before May 24th has come early this year. Violinist and I traveled via Via Rail last night back home from Ottawa. Aside from a spectacular sunset, all along the route we were treated to people celebrating with backyard fireworks. Happy 24th!
