Last Night In Toronto

One of the things that keeps me going in life is always having something to look forward to.  I've always believed that once you let your life get into a rut, you're on the downward spiral.  All my life I've had something to look forward to.

These days what I look forward to, in addition to my wonderful life here at home with Bill, is my four times a year outings with my Can-Am pal Pat.  A few weeks ago I marked the end of summer by visiting Pat at his home in Toronto Canada.  I started this tradition last year and I plan to continue it until I can no longer mobilize myself.  

In January Pat and I will visit Los Angeles (West Hollywood) for the second time.  In the spring Pat comes down here to Lower Slower (Delaware) for his annual Spring Visit.  Pat also comes down later in the summer to have a taste of Rehoboth in high summer season, date to be determined.

Pat and I love Philadelphia and plan to make a visit there sometime again.  We both also want to visit Chicago but I'm not sure when the best time to visit.  In the sweltering heat of summer or the freezing cold of winter?  Suggestions are welcomed.

I've mentioned to Pat that I would like to visit Quebec and Montreal again but he said visiting them during my annual visit to Toronto would be like us swinging down to Dallas Texas during his annual visits to Lower Slower.  Understood but still, I would like to visit Quebec again just one more time before I check out.

Neither of us have a desire to visit any foreign countries, there are enough places in our respective countries to replay the Ron and Pat Show (don't you just love our videos?) many times.

That said, here are some short snippet videos of my last night in Toronto.  We visited Kensington Market, the "South Street" of Toronto.  Very cool!

  1. Wow Ron - I think my battery level on that last day was dwindling down to 5%. Just can't keep up with you.

    1. Pat,
      You know what I've always told you, if you start slowing down, I'll just drag you along anyway (smile).

    The Ron & Pat Tour might be stopping in Chicago? Yay! We (together for 33 years) would be happy to help you plan whatever you need. For gay events, the Pride Parade is the last Sunday in June and the Market Days festival is mid-August http://www.northalsted.com/pages/northalsted_market_days__2015/152.php
    And the "Boystown" neighborhood (as it's called) has a nice vegetarian restaurant http://www.veggiediner.com/

    1. Hey Jeff! We may just take you up on your offer and June sounds like a great time to visit Chicago. I was wondering what a good time to visit Chicago was and the end of June is a great time. Pat visits me in Delaware in early spring. He came down again in late June to experience Rehoboth but we've done that, been there. Chicago would be a nice diversion. I'll talk to Pat about it. Thanks for the suggestion!

  3. Nice sequence of vid shorts, bringing your last Toe-Ron-Toe night to life effectively.
    Did you get anyone mistaking you and Pat for brothers this time?

  4. Ray,
    Glad you asked! No, no one mistake us for brothers on this trip.
