October 28, 2007

I thought today would be pretty slim pickings, being Sunday and with nothing planned.
Sunny Sunday afternoon
But things started to happen when a neighbour asked if Peter could help her with dismantling her patio table so she could get it into her basement for the Winter. I haven't even cleaned out the garage to make a spot for our table, much less dismantled the garden and planted the bulbs. But it was a nice sunny day even if it was only 5C so we went over to see what we could do and ended up taking only a few minutes to take the table apart and move it into her basement.

With that chore done, we headed out to see what there was to see. A hardy cyclist pedaled by on Centrepointe. It really wasn't that cold and anything above zero is a bonus.

We waved hello to all our blog readers.

The wind was blowing the dried and nearly gone leaves in front of the medical centre at the little plaza whose name we realized we do not know.
Sunny Sunday afternoon
And the wind had blown over a chair at the Marshy's patio, signalling the end of patio season in Ottawa.

Did the guy on the tiped over chair survive :)

I don't know - the only evidence of foul play was a broken bottle.

I'm pretty sure it's called "Marshy's Mini-Mall", formerly "Don Cherry's Mini-Mall"!

Hmm, I'll have to check it out. I think developers like to call their malls names, like College Square over there. However, before that new mall was built, no one ever really called the old mall "Shoppers City West" much, I don't think.
