After a trip to an art exhibit in Rosthern, 
we had a lovely lunch as well, (see the
b & w photos,). We crossed the mighty
North Saskatchewan River on the 
Wingard ferry which is free, holds up to 
six cars and is a trip of several minutes.

Viewing these photos I think of other

"Imagine that you see the wretched 
Their babies at their backs and their poor 
Plodding to the ports and coasts for 
And that you sit as kings in your desires . . .
What had you got? I’ll tell you: you had 
How insolence and strong hand should 
How order should be quelled; and by this 
Not one of you should live an aged man,
For other ruffians, as their fancies wrought,
With self same hand, self reasons, and self 
Would shark on you, and men like 
ravenous fishes
Would feed on one another."
