THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF THEIR LIFE


As is so often the case with photographs, the above speak volumes.  Two young people happily and momentarily carelessly in love on the best day of their life, the world their oyster, pausing momentarily to  reflect on the marriage vows they had just exchanged on the beach at Southampton this past weekend.  Symbolically, the bride is ultimately swept off her feet as the bare-footed newly-weds splash along the Lake Huron Shoreline and into their new life together, "to have and to hold from this day forward"...until death they do part(?)...  Saugeen Times photos

WAY TO GO DRESDEN & CHATHAM-KENT

Congratulations to the folks in Dresden and their Chatham-Kent neighours for winning the coveted spot on the new edition of Monopoly Canada which goes on sale next week.  This year the producer of the 75-year-old board game asked Canadians to vote online for the cities they thought worthy of  a "square".   Chatham-Kent (pop. 110,000 after imalgamation in 2000) and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu earned top-rated colour-coded spots on the board, followed by Calgary, Sarnia and Edmonton.  More than a million votes were received Canada-wide, 65,000 of those going to Chatham-Kent.  Another game board collector's item for future generations, to be sure.
