The other day one of my friends challenged me to write a blog post about 10 things I miss about my hometown. So here goes.
Number 1 is definitely my son Kyle. It’s been over a decade since we’ve even lived in the same country, never mind the same city.
Number 2 is my friends. One of my friends dates all the way back to middle school and the others are friends for twenty years plus.
Number 3 is the Shaarey Zedek Cemetery. I like to go there in person rather than virtually.
Number 4 is West Portage Y. Lots of good times with friends in aquafit classes.
Number 5 is The English Garden at Assiniboine Park.
Number 6 is food. Moussaka at Niko’s, Sorrento’s Salad and burgers at V J’s.
Number 7 is going to fall suppers in the rural areas.
Number 8 is the Mennonite thrift stores, auctions and flea markets I used to frequent when I had my EBay business.
Number 9 is The Winnipeg Fringe Festival.
I really tried to think of one more but honestly couldn’t. There are other restaurants and parks but I really wouldn’t put them in my top ten. I was especially disappointed at how The Forks has deteriorated and has become such a dangerous place. I prefer to do my shopping in the USA and have no favorite places to shop left in Winnipeg. I guess I’ve been traveling too much and have been to so many new and exciting places.
So there you have it——nine things but not quite ten.
