Winnipeg Trolly

I had a Victorian at Heart outing scheduled for last week.  Lottie wasn’t planning on coming and Shirley, unfortunately had to back out.  You know how it is…the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

Hubby stepped in and was my date.  He wasn’t going in costume and though he said I could, I opted against it.  Three or more in costume is an event, an occasion, a club.  Two in costume are good friends with a slightly different idea of fun.  One person in costume is odd.  One person in costume with a non-costumed escort is some one with mental capacity issues out with their caregiver….

The outing was with Winnipeg Trolley tours and they were featuring a ghost tour.

The trolley’s are made to look like the old street cars we used to have here…just with motors.  They would have been a hoot in Edwardian or late Victorian gear. All wood inside…nice!

There were stories of local ghost sightings while we drove around the city and a few stops where we got out to see some sights before they shut down for the winter.

Dalnavert House…done up like a house in mourning.

All in all, a pleasant evening.  I think it will be worth it to try this event again, and hopefully, with the girls in costume.

 

Orange and homeless

I know I have been MIA for a bit.  One of my kids moved out of the country this past week and I have been curled up into a ball emotionally.  But, alas, life goes on.  I managed to finish another baby blanket for a baby I don’t have.

I realize the fur ball could use a hair cut.  Luckily, she is more or less blind so has very little idea that the hair is in her eyes.  But she does deserve to look her best.  I will get on that ASAP.

I have a costume event on Thursday so hopefully I will get a post up on Friday.  Have a good week folks.

Annual train ride

Lottie and I took our annual ride on the Prairie Dog Central. (Unfortunately, Shirley wasn’t able to make it),

It was a bit later in the season than usual but this was a good thing…it gave us both a chance to wear things that we can’t wear in July.  We both wore 1880s in honor of the engine’s age.

I played with my phone app a bit…

There’s a bird sitting on my head!

Next time, I will share some of the unique finds I saw in the display area at the end of the first segment of the ride.
