Fortunately our Christmas Day dinner guests live close by, had Hydro, and were willing to take us and the food for dinner into their house and provide showers. Others in southern Ontario will also have stories to tell. Christmas 2013 was the holiday that will keep on giving as we tell the stories each year. Remember when? And then a week in Paris and what’s not to like about that. We had a flat in Le Marais in the middle of the old city which is within walking distance of everything we wanted to see.
