Golden Telephone

You have heard the story about the golden telephone?

You haven't!

Several snowbirds - Canadian pensioners who migrate to Florida, Texas, Mexico to avoid the facts of life otherwise known as winter - have reported seeing golden telephones in some of the southern USA/Mexico churches with a sign stating variously something like: " Talk to God directly, $100. US ".

Some of these people subsequently found that churches in Orillia offered similar services but for only 25 cents (Canadian). On inquiring it was revealed that was because here the call was "local" vs in USA it would have been "Long distance".

Now that is interesting, don't you think?

So you can imagine my delight when I looked out the window just a few minutes ago and saw this rainbow.

Pretty impressive until you recall an origin for the name of the town, Orillia, from the Spanish for golden shore,

The first 2 images were taken from the living room! The next, and the one below from the balcony.


to all peace.
