20 years ago we emigrated to Canada. I have to say those 20 years have flown by and on the whole it's been a good 20 years. Have we any regrets about moving here, no this is home. We miss family and friends, but the opportunities that Canada has presented us are priceless.
On Saturday our local "town offices," had a free compost day, or "Black Gold." It was the strangest thing though, when we got there, there was a pile of compost, but not a soul about??? So as I had taken two blue recycling boxes and a garbage bin, I filled all three up with the compost. I mean if we had, had a trailer we could have filled it. If we had been in our old city, we would have been "supervised," and we would have only been allowed the one box, and if we hadn't have gone at the crack of dawn we wouldn't have been able to get any at all.
One of the joys of living in a small town.
