Mortar Firing

on Saturday, October 3, 2009

While visiting Fort Erie in Ontario, Canada, we saw a demonstration of the firing of this 1812-era mortar. It was a small piece, but it sure made a big noise.


On a sad note we learned that Betsy's brother, Ray, died yesterday (Friday) afternoon. Please keep Betsy and Ray's family in your prayers. Our posting and visiting your blogs are likely going to be hit and miss for the next few days.
