OUR CITY HAS COME BACK TO LIFE !

our city is essentially a university , college and military place .
the official population count is about 150,000 , spread over a fairly large area . the city itself is right on lake ontario but the rural area stretches about 20 miles to the east (st. lawrence river) and 25 miles north (canadian shield) .

with the loss/reduction in much of the heavy industry (ALCAN and DUPONT have shrunk considerably ) , there are now many seniors living in our city - many have come from toronto and montreal .

but come september the population increases by about 25,000 people : the university students , college students , RMC students (royal military college) arrive back in town !

i was downtown yesterday and the sidewalks and stores were crowded , cash registers were RINGING busily ! there was a lineup at the beerstore - it looked like there might be a shortage of LIQUIDS - but the beertrucks were bringing in fresh supplies Laughing

so our quiet town has come back to life again !
the football team and band will be marching through town to the stadium !
the cheers will ring out for the hometeam - fall isn't far away !

We're experiencing that in Columbus, too. It doesn't get quite so dead in the summer... more like quiet, blessed quiet... but now the place is packed. I went to Target the other day and it was positively swarming with frosh.

You make hay in the summer and cultivate the mind after harvest.

It's fun to be in Kingston when the new students arrive - as long as it's not homecoming weekend.
