|Is this what heaven looks like?|
We just returned home from a long weekend's drive to Canada and back to pick up our daughter from her summer camp, somewhere north of Perry Sound, Ontario. This is the fourth consecutive year of taking her to camp and we always drive the 1,000 miles or so that it takes. In all of our travels, we had never stopped in at one of Canada's famous Tim Horton's donut shops, so I resolved to cross that item off the old bucket list.
Let me just say that the donuts are every bit as good as advertised via word of mouth. If you are travelling in Canada, take the time to stop at a Tim Horton's and buy a bag of donuts. I had a Chocolate Raspberry Truffel donut, see below, that was to die for. If I am so lucky as to one day pass through the pearly gates of Heaven, I'm convinced that there will be a Tim Horton's there (and a long line to boot).
|I had the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle in the upper center as well as one of the Maple Dipped donuts in the lower center. Yummmmmy!|
The journey set my shipping of orders back a little bit this week, but I will catch up with everything by the end of this week.
As long as we are talking about Good Things, let me show you a couple pictures of my growing collection of Britain's War Along the Nile Camel Corps, as shown in the two pictures below.
As usual, click on the pictures to enlarge the view (you can even double click, if you dare).

Over the last several weeks, the Camel Corps has grown from 9 figures to 46 figures as of today. I want to thank Matthew in particular for selling me a large chunk of the collection, including the suppine camels and the Naval Gatling Gun and crew (both of which are hard to find). Add in the 60 York & Lancaster Regiment figures from the same range, and I've got a square of 106 figures plus a Gatling Gun PLUS Fred Burnaby! I think that I am ready for the Dervish this time.
