Wishing all of my Canadian friends a happy Victoria Day weekend. May your BBQ be cooked to perfection, your beer cold and your weather sunny and warm. Happy Birthday Queen Victoria!
(in case some of you were wondering what on earth the picture of Queen Vickie and assorted decorations at the grocers, etc was about)
Port Babbage - In the wee hours of the morning it was reported that an unexpected explosion took out the second floor of the Curious Seamstress store on the New Babbage Waterfront. The landmark store has stood in sturdy splendor for nearly two years on the corner of the block.
The weather outside was horrible, the sleet pelting the glass and leaving the cobblestone streets below slick, the gaslamps' glow reflecting dimly upon them. I watched as two dark figures, Mr. Gears and Giles came through the front gate, each carrying two large sacks.
