Zodiac Killer

San Francisco Police Department [Public domain]

Zodiac Killer had struck too many times

It was up to the detectives to solve these crimes

Endless nights of no sleep

Waiting for a clue if only a peep

This went on for many, many years

Bringing families’ no closure, just tears

The Stanley Cup

The Stanley Cup

It was the second period and the Leafs were behind by two goals, which was understandable as the Bruins were a tough team to beat. In game seven the Bruins win in the 2019 playoffs and the Leafs are out.

The Leafs have not won the Stanley Cup since playing against the Montreal Canadiens back in 1967. In total the Toronto Maple Leafs have won the cup 13 times.

Fans are a dedicated bunch that come out every year to cheer on the Leafs watching them make it to playoffs only to be heartbroken year after year.

I’m sure their goal to win will eventually come, and I hope it’s sooner than later.

Street Art in Orillia, Ontario

Each year Orillia has a different theme for street art.

Sail Boats
Stephen Leacock. The theme was chairs
Letters were the theme
The theme was guitars

The theme for this year is going to be “Off The Chain” which should be interesting to see what people come up with.

Local artists get together each year and create something for that years theme.

This is for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #45.

Happy Mother’s Day

A Place to Ponder

Stephen Leacock Boathouse on Lake Couchiching, Orillia

To daydream or to ponder life this is where I go. The rowboat out in the water was moving very slow.

The boathouse sits in plain view for all to see. Sometimes I imagine what it would be like to live there happily.

==============

To think that Stephen Leacock once sat here writing his short stories makes me smile to know that he was a great writer and spent his summers here on Brewery Bay, Lake Couchiching.

Stephen was a Canadian writer and humorist who was born in 1869 and was originally from Swanmore, UK.
