This thread should really be called post a picture of things you enjoy about where you live.
So feel free to waver from just the 3 in the title

I like this shot..I need to find others that are so much better..

The above link is an arial shot of the fine city of saskatoon,saskatchewan

also known affectionately to some as "toon town"

not that great of a shot..but I think I can search ,and add a few more...
Broadway Ave is my favorite street on this "town" at times..
on of the oldest,with many good clubs to see live music in, as well as outdoor venues.
wonderful street fairs there as well during the "jazz Festival",as well as "fringe festival" days".the latter being revolved all around live plays,locally and not locally written,as well as lots of "live" music on the streets...fun place to go..you won't be bored...(ok..maybe some)

One evening when I was maybe around 20 something, myself and a couple of good friends of mine,were going from one venue to the next..during session break time that many bands have. Many others did this as well,as there about 6 venues within 5 minutes walking. This particular evening there were two middle aged women walking ahead of us,obviously doing the same thing everyone else was doing...and one of them turned,and looked to her friend,and said....is this how they do the "broadway shuffle " here?" It cracked me and my friends up so much...I stilll use the term ,and others do as well, when we shuffling through"broadway",cause the next venue has a dynmaite second set act....its fun
If you are into that kind of live music scene...crowds can get a little stupid at times...but generally you can avoid the stupidity,,and just enjoy..what you enjoy about it....(I really like "live" music...one of a kind never to be done again quite the same way...some, much better than others I might add 😕

I'm going to try and find better pics,but I'm waiting on seeing others.
Cole that means pics of any birds..whatever...

I also think that samll towns have a beauty to them much unappreciated, if anyone lives in a hamlet..or something like that .I would love to see those as well...its all beautiful to the ones that love it for what they take from it.
k..I'll shaaadup now... 🙄

anyhow..going to let you members in on a few snapshots of "toon" town
theres one now..more to follow 😉

above is a really bad picture of the underup side of the Broadway Bridge
the castle type building in the background is the bessborough hotel.
K..this is my last post on this till I get way better shots..I've seen some that make these look like crap, so I better keep searching..

I think their might be some good photos in the link below of some parts of the campus,and some others I haven't seen....just want you people to know a bit about Saskatoon ,where I live (saskatoon is a wild berry that has been very abundant in this part of the prairies.)ok..I'm boring you I know,but maybe the city will look kindly upon me for promoting the beauty I see in it...(hoping Dr whats his name with the 30 day book will take notice I mentioned him as well in a few posts...anything you want in 30 days hunh??..we'll see bout that 😉 )

heres another link my friends..
ouch..lost it ..be right back

There can be no faith in government if our highest offices are excused from scrutiny - they should be setting the example of transparency.
