Happy 30th Anniversary!!!

It has been 30 years ago tomorrow that I walked down the aisle and became Mrs. Thomas Wallen. For our honeymoon 30 years ago, we went to Toronto for 3 days. (Tom had a mid-term exam at school on Wednesday evening, so we had to get back.) Tom surprised me by booking a trip to Toronto and Niagara Falls this weekend. We arrived in Toronto, via Buffalo and driving over the border, on Friday evening. When we arrived at the Holiday Inn Yorkdale, the desk clerk informed us that our reservation was for 5 days ago. Tom did not notice the incorrect date on his confirmation notice. A quick call to the Priority Club (it was a reward points reservation) fixed the problem and we were given our room. We went across the street to look for a restaurant in the Yorkdale shopping center and ate at The Pickle Barrel Grand. A fine place with very healthy food and many customers. We went back to our room to sleep. The next morning, we headed out to find Casa Loma, the only turretted castle in North
