Rural Ontario Anywhere

On a journey through rural Ontario this morning as I visit family in Thornbury and Toronto before heading to Montreal tonight.

We are passing through the countryside south of Barrie. I just saw a sign that took me back 30 years. Outside a little restaurant the sign proudly advertised “homeburgers”

That made me smile because it is a word of this country only. A homeburger is a hamburger made fresh from ground beef rather than one that comes as a pre made patty. I have lived in British Columbia for 18 years and have almost forgotten that word.

Travelling through this country stirs my old blood memory.
