We’re here. And so is Pat — she flew in a couple of days ago and stayed with friends.

Everything is in Kristina’s appartment, the rental truck is returned and I’m beat.

K’s out on her balcony looking at the CN Tower. Her location is amazing, walking distane from the University of Toronto and so much more — China Town, Younge Street, you name it.

What’s weird is, now that the road trip is over, a new era has begun for me. I’m now a visitor at her home. After 22 years, that’s a major mind bender.

There are great pics just waiting to be posted, but they’re gonna have to wait. First off, we’re not sure where the camera is. Second, like i said to begin with, we’re beat. So, tomorrow we’re going to post the final pictures of our road trip and the move in.

Oh, no editor for this, and i can’t see straight, so spelling may be especially bad.



  1. Thanks for taking us on this part of the journey with you. Life changes are so traumatic. The thing with our kids when they turn into adults is that they look forward – and the parents, even though we move on, we still look back and remember. Some day this too will seem normal. Love you guys.


  2. It’s a huge step, Tim. i vividly remember arriving inToronto in 1979. Everything i owned was in a suitcase and a cardboard box. I moved into a co-op residence at Gerard and Church atreets, across from the Ryerson Campus and didn’t know anyone. Many years later, i have so many life long friends that i met in those early days and i still enjoy walking through the streets of downtown Toronto when i’m there. The streets have changed, and so has the vibe, but the buzz of the busy city is still the same . Here’s hoping she makes great friends and great memories! Cheers!
