Last week Hannah and I drove southeast on Kingsway to New Westminster where we walked up and down Columbia Street, poked around the antique shops along the waterfront before a quick visit to the New Media Gallery at the Anvil Centre.
On our return we stopped at the Oasis Car Wash in Burnaby; and then, as we were nearing Gladstone Street, I remembered that the City of Vancouver recently posted a "Literary Landmark" plaque to commemorate my book Kingsway (1995) and its mention of Kingsway's first settler-built structure, the Gladstone Inn, in 1865.
The two dots placed below my eyes are remnants of what Hannah said were "likely googly eyes." She tried to pick them off, but they were on there pretty good.
