The idea of putting a fun figure on top of the carousel was inspired by Elena, the “Twirling Girl” whostands atop the highest point of the Carousel of Happiness in Nederland, Colorado....
Treating Yourself Expo
You may remember that in last month's issue I mentioned that I was going to the Treating Yourself Expo at the Metro Convention Centre. It was a sunny but unseasonably cold and windy day on Friday,May 24
. I rode the Go train to Union Station as usual and took the Sky Walk to the ConventionCentre. It was a very long walk. In fact I think it's actually much faster to take Front Street outside but Iwanted to stay out of the cold. I must have walked for at least half an hour. It's a good thing I had setout early because the exhibit opened to the public at 10:00 and as I neared the Convention Centre Ifound a place with chairs so I could sit down for a few minutes. As I approached the queue, I couldn't help but notice that the line-up for the vendors was much longer
