Canadian Life Style

   CANADIAN HOSPITALITY…WOW

TONIGHT WE DECIDED TO STOP AT THE RUM RUNNERS RESTAURANT AND PUB. WE SAT ON THE BAR SIDE AND WE WERE JOINED BY THE OWNER. HE SAT DOWN WITH US AND WE STARTED CHATTING. HE ENTERTAINED US WITH ALL HIS LIFE ADVENTURES. HE SHARED WHY HE LOVES AMERICA AND HOW HE CAME VERY CLOSE TO SIGNING UP TO FIGHT FOR US DURING THE VIETNAM WAR. TOLD THE RECRUITMENT GUY HE WAS GOING HOME TO THINK ABOUT IT AND FOUND AN ADMITTANCE LETTER TO A TORONTO COLLEGE AND DID THAT INSTEAD.

HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER WORK WITH HIM AT HIS RESTAURANT AND IT WAS FUN TO BE TREATED SO WELL. WE DISCUSSED LIFE PHILOSOPHIES, UPDATES ON HAPPENINGS IN OUR LIVES AND THE GOINGS ON AT SIDNEY. AND WHY WE ALL LOVE SIDNEY SO MUCH. HE SHARED THAT HE WAS JEWISH AND THAT SOMETIMES HE FELT PRESSURE BECAUSE OF THAT. HE LIVED IN ISRAEL FOR AWHILE AND HAD THOUGHTS ON THE POLITICS IN THE REGION. IT SEEMED LIKE HE WAS AN OLD FRIEND.

WHEN I GOT UP TO GO TO THE WASHROOM HE CAME ALONG AND ESCORTED ME IN THAT DIRECTION ..THEN ASKED HIS DAUGHTER TO CHECK IT TO MAKE SURE IT WAS IN GOOD CONDITION. IT WAS OF COURSE IMMACULATE.

HE CONTINUED TO HANG OUT WITH MARY AND I ALL EVENING. WHEN WE LEFT WE FOUND HIM OUTSIDE WAITING..HE WALKED US TO OUR CAR. QUITE AN EVENING. CLEARLY HIS RESTAURANT WAS NOT BUSY …CANADIAN HOSPITALITY?? DEFINITELY FRIENDLY.
