Our flight was scheduled to depart Montreal at 3:40, but we received late word that we’d be delayed a half an hour. We ended up boarding at 4:00, then spent an hour on the tarmac before finally leaving Montreal, one hour and a half late. Finally back in Toronto, we spent much of the day banking, shopping, running errands, and finishing up five comic book pitches.
Before we left Montreal, we got a chance to see my cousin Jeannie and her kids Tania and Matthew representing Hawaii, Arizona, and Guam.
Mom shows off the weird bottle of vino she’ll be breaking into the usher in the New Year.
The amazing treasures I came across.
Final lunch in Montreal: chicken fettine (my favorite), mom’s garlic marinated eggplant, super cooked dumplings (my mother likes them even crispier), pan-fried mushrooms (Akemi on duty here), and Japanese sweet potatoes with butter.
I’m feeling significantly better, but Akemi is insistent on me attending my scheduled endoscopy next week. It’s an 8:00 a.m. crosstown appointment and I’ll need to be sedated fro the procedure! I welcome your input.
