Met in Waterloo

We are in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada visiting our old friend, Papi Jim. We met in Bolivia way back in 1973-4. It is special to be here with Jennie and Larry. They hadn't seen him since they were 10 or so. He was very much a part of them coming into our lives.

I sketched with Art Rage on my iPad. It has a metal setting which I used on the culvert thingy outside the basement window. Can't tell if it shows.

 Numbers 4 and 5, two different plants.
Today Gene will ride his trike and we will visit some more.  We lunched at Kennedy's, fun and good food. Papi Jim cooked last night, excellent!  A good time was had by all.
Tonight out to dinner at one of his favorite restaurants.
More another time.......

What a great visit you must be having! How wonderful that he is getting to see Jennie and Larry after all that time. Enjoy!

Jennifer, we had a good time today. Wow, they have added touristy stuff. I thought we were in Las Vegas!

Bag Blog, visiting with Papi Jim is Ike being transported back in time. Thanks.

Joan, it was a great couple of days. Papi Jim is so special.
