Things That Aren't Solely My Mother

I thought you might like to see a little bit of Wolfville, the town I was raised, and learn a little bit about it. So here are some pictures, and a link to a reasonably good Wikipedia article on the town. I think it was ultimately a great place to grow up in. Not many towns of 3,000 (at the time) give you a chance to see the Bolshoi Ballet and Joan Baez, among other wonderful memories. It is definitely a small town, but there is a level of culture here that's amazing, plus ... well, go read the information.

Here's the cafe from which I've sent my posts. And here's a little bit about Just Us Coffee, because they're just a little awesome (Argh. Except for this story about their maybe being non-union friendly. Gah. I hope it's not true, and that they end up hiring the kids back. It sounds good.)




But you are going to have to see a picture of my mother, as she was when she was a young girl.

A small town with culture sounds like an ideal place to live.

And I keep ending up with this song going through my head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4P0Q6k2TOU

I love a post about Nova Scotia! We only went to Wolfville once, briefly, but it seemed nice. We did a driving tour one day up through that area from Halifax.

It's strange to see you mention Just Us! here though, because I have a very socially-conscious cousin who lives in Dartmouth and he was posting on Facebook about that issue. I was confused for a minute where I was!

And your mother is lovely. :)

*Blushes* You know, I am so worried about that!! What if I'm too loud/not loud enough/a dork/horrid?! I am so nervous and...omg...I am so worried everyone will walk away going 'yeesh - well, it was good to know her for a bit'

*headdesk*

Never mind me...I get nervy, lol!

Give your mom all my love, sweetie. Hope she's doing a bit better...
