Saint Andrew's Feast Day

Today is the Feast Day of the Patron Saint of Scotland, Saint Andrew.

It is also the 83th Birthday of my father. So Will and I went down to Montreal by train to have lunch with him at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel which sits on top of the Central Station in Montreal.

Winter scene around 11am near Alexandria, Ontario.

We had a lovely lunch, starting with a glass of Champagne, all the waiters know my Dad so we were well taken care of.  My father told Will stories of my childhood, I know those stories well, they are all connected to the hotel industry of which my father was part of for many decades. His favourites are the ones about the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City. The stories are 50 years old but still funny, of course they involve food and restaurants. Happy Birthday Dad!!!!

 They say we look alike

  3. Many happy returns to him !!
