 Our fallen soldiers upon returning home, fly into Trenton Military Base here in Ontario.

The autopsies which are required for these soldiers who bravely served in the Afgan war are done in Toronto.

The people from across the province know when the hearse carrying our young men, will travel from Trenton to Toronto.  It started out quite quietly as things happen in Canada, people started lining the overpasses along the 401, or the official name for the highway is Trans Canada Highway.....people brough their Canadian flags, the firedepartments brought trucks with large flags on the sides, the police lined the highways and saluted the procession as it went by. This route is now called the Highway of Heroes.

This, we hope has helped the families who follow the procession to know that the fallen are recognized for their effort in the war.

This week, as we were looking for properties in the Trenton area we came upon such a sad happening.  At Cobourg, which is about a half hour from Trenton, we were entering the highway, we glimpsed about 150 people on this small overpass most with flags, just standing quietly, cars haulted, the hearse and its procession of cars moved west towards Toronto.

We were now behind the procession, no cars pass the hearse or the limos of the family that follows its son, father, husband.  Every overpass  we came to was covered with people and the firetrucks.  At Oshawa there was an engine!The engine had the biggest flag, and about 50 people were standing there.

It's the least we can do isn't it?

 I'm late as usual....too many things on my mind.   We have sold our house in the city.

It happened so quickly that this mind is out of control with what to do now.  We sold in 24 hours, didn't think too much except that a bidding war happened and we got such a good price.  Could not refuse type of thing...

So forgive me. 

I am making a nine patch once again, was looking for variations on said pattern when I happened on this awesome blog.  of course this gal is Australian which shouldn't surprise any of those of us that follow that bunch.

She only has two, count the number two followers!  Such a surprise!
I now am number two by the way.

Look at this clever baby pouch made from old jeans.  Now isn't she worth a boo?  I tell you her quilting is different and I love her colour sense.

So give her a visit. 

As to the house thing, we will be off to the cottage in a month, so we are putting the house stuffs in storage till we decide what to do with our life.  Ah the decisions to make!
