Thunder Bay – Monday

I wonder if I will live long enough to see this space used for something…anything? Pretty good looking rye bread. No takers so far. Bread is something you need to stay away from if you want to lose weight. Private parking lot getting paved. Public parking lot not getting paved. Same view I take everyday. […]
