Cowart's Common Room
Big event today

We're hosting a book launch at the library where I work one day a week as their archivist. By the standards of the town (which has a population of 1,700!) this is quite a big deal. I'm going in now to set up a display of old photographs and so on. This is the first time I've been involved with a book launch, so am slightly nervous and hope that it all goes smoothly. Wish me luck!

shame it is so far away , the iGit is very interested in such things, and often watches programs about old planes, or sometimes we go to see them fly. Both our Fathers were in the RAF, his WW2, mine later, so I guess we grew up with the interest.

Good luck with it, I recall watching a program not so long ago about Canadian pilots flying long haul over the pole to get new planes to us in the UK during both wars, hugely risky business, and many crashed. Such brave selfless men.

Pondside's Avatar Wow - that will be fun! I'll have to look for that book for my dad, husband and brother, all of whom served in some version of the RCAF.
I know Deseronto pretty well. When I lived in Kingston I spent many a pretty summer afternoon visiting my friend's parents who lived in the old train station house - very interesting place. We'd take our children for the day - a magical place to paddle in a stream and wander on the (then) empty streets without fear of being run over! We'd visit the cheese factory on the way home, squeeking curds all the way!
