We're locked in at the love locks.

So, hubby and I were on our yearly weekend jaunt to Kingston, Ontario when we stopped by the quaint village of Cobourg and took a walk along the marina where we saw the love locks. We both thought it was a wonderful way to celebrate our union, but we did not have a lock with us.





We continued to Kingston where hubby let me off at the annual antique fair a few blocks away from out hotel. Would you believe the first table I looked at had a box of locks. What are the odds? So, I bought three locks; 1 from the 60's which we put on the love locks in Cobourg, a small cute red lock from the 80's, and a nonfunctional lock from the late 1800's, which I may wear as a pendant.

Here are pics of the locks and the love locks.

Guess who lies in wait under my bed and slashes my bare feet as I walk by?

Yes very memorable, now if only hubby will agree to putting a love lock on the Paris, France locks. 13.gif

Kitty seems to be happy and active, but she still limps. My son has to catch up on his financial backlog before he has enough money to take kitty to a vet. I'm on his back about it on a regular basis though. I want her leg x-rayed so we can see what's what.

I'd like Whaler to travel too but he's not into it. Don't blame him, 7 months away he just wants to be home, I just want him home. But looks like I'll be going to Europe in November, there's a lay-over in Paris on one of the flights I've looked at cheers.gif hyper.gif and yes, meet Octo and JR yay.gif

That's great that you will finally meet JR and Octo. I wish I could handle long plane trips, but I find any plane trip over 3 hours taxing on my nerves - so perhaps by sea in the future(?). So, what's your itinerary?

I don't mind long flights but the movies annoy me, no way to shut them off. Just STFU already gaah.gif rofl.gif Must remember to take ear plugs.

No big plans, just fly to Amsterdam where I have all my dad's side of the family, I'll spend time with them. Octo and JR will come from Helsinki and we'll spend a few days kickin around the city chuckle.gif I'd like to go to Finland but not enough time to really see the countries I'd travel to. Octo looked into us going to Russia but omg that's a bureaucratic nightmare to get a visa. So Amsterdam it'll be beercheer.gif

We have a love lock bridge in a town south of here as well. The outrage was complete when the locks were removed and melted down in the name of art.

Wow, that sucks. Why didn't "they" put an ad in the newspapers to warn the love locked to come and get their locks? sad2.gif But, I guess nothing really lasts forever.
