The weather has been absolutely fabulous every day since I arrived on August 15th. The forecast for tomorrow is in the eighties. Thank goodness we didn't have those kinds of temperatures while I was here because my host's house doesn't have air conditioning.
Yesterday we took to the streets of Toronto again. Each day is an adventure. Yesterday we made a stop at Starbucks. Ask me how many Starbucks there are in Toronto. Go ahead. How many? A LOT. My host drinks a lot of coffee so we make frequent Starbucks rest stops. Yesterday there was a particularly effective screaming baby in the Starbucks we stopped at. My eardrums can't take it so I escaped to the sidewalk cafe accommodations.
We took in an afternoon matinee. My host suggested the movie "Sin City."
All I can say about this movie is "Little House on the Prairie" this isn't.

The cineplexes here in Toronto are gigantic. And expensive. To attend "Sin City" yesterday (in 3D) the total cost for me and Pat was $27.00. Popcorn $7.00, includes butter.

Well folks, just as I'm settling down to a routine: lunch at Aroma Cafe, roam around Toronto in the afternoon, dinner at an Indian restaurant in the evening, and finish the day with two games of Scrabble (which I have yet to win) it's going to be time to bid a fond adieu and return to the culture wars of the U.S., which I didn't miss one bit while I've been away.
Time to wrap this blog posting up and make tracks out the front door for our adventure today. Pat suggested going on the trolley and see where it takes us. Sounds good to me.
