Happy Halloween!!

I actually forgot until I went out to dinner tonight and saw all the cute kids dressed up. From what I was told, Halloween isn't a bit deal in France but from what I see, it sure seems to be a major holiday.

Today I was in Lille, France which no one has heard of and yet, it’s a giant city. Its center reminded me a lot of Ashland where it has great little shops, neat stone ...

... of achievement and sacrifice. France ceded to Canada perpetual use of a portion of land on Vimy Ridge on the understanding that the Canadians use the land to establish a battlefield park and memorial. Wartime tunnels, trenches, craters and unexploded munitions still honeycomb the grounds of the site, which remains largely closed off for reasons of public safety. Along with preserved trench lines, a number of other memorials and cemeteries are contained within the site.

... that.

Duisans British Cemetery was our next stop. Here Harold Johnson is buried. He is the elder brother of Sally's grandmother (deceased). The drizzle turned to rain, but we had time to plant a couple of flowering plants and pay our respects. He was 20 years old when he was killed in 1918, and had enlisted in 1915 (likely right after his 18th birthday). Sally's grandmother was not much more than 12 years old when she last saw her brother. It was fitting ...

... and no sign of Gilly. So I returned to the hotel car park to see that he had gone. We thought that he might wait down the road for us. But on the 10 minute ride to the ferry terminal there was no sign of him. When we reached passport control we stopped and contacted him. He had gone through and was waiting for us near the ticket booth.

After giving him a round of 'proverbial's', we continued through the ticket booths. We obviously picked ...
