Vacation, Spring 2013, Day 1

Quotation of the day ~ Ray Davies: Holiday, oh what a lovely day today.

Yes, yes, yes, i have a week off! Nine days, to be precise, woo hoo! (I'm entitled to five weeks a year but i'm lucky if i get three....)

And what (i hear you ask) did i do today? Well, this morning i beetled on down to the Stratford train station and bought a ticket -- i'm going to Toronto on Friday.  Third time lucky: the last two times i went to the station the ticket office was closed.

Grabbed some breakfast at the local A & W on the way home -- i hate their burgers but their breakfast menu is okay -- and then watched this DVD (for the second time):

An extraordinary, powerful film.

And that was about it, really. Day 1 in a nutshell.
