Sunday was a nice day. My oldest daughter took me to a very distinctive bar in Ontario. We went to pick up our preordered chicken dinners that one of the church organizations were selling as a fundraiser for their kids’ program. The amazing part of this was that this group sold more chicken dinners than people in their special little town. Over 500 dinners were sold, and they didn’t have them all cooked. This brings us back to the very distinctive bar in Ontario that we went to while we waited for our dinners.
This bar put me back in time. All of the TVs were showing an old black and white western. No shooting at all, and a real gentle sheriff. The horse rode off into the dusk. And the crew sat down for their grub.
The bar, unique as it was, had no sign of all the electronic world that we are living in, but rather fun conversation with the other patrons in the bar. A pencil and pad was there to add up the cheese curds and each a beer.
This I put on paper because it was back in time. This little town was close to going under with the worst flooding in 100–500 years. But thetown stayed afloat!
And now, for the next episode of the western, goodnight John Boy, goodnight all! Stop everything you are doing and try that easy lifestyle in Ontario — how sweet it is.
