Mel's bench


Mel Lastman was the longtime mayor of North York - the neighborhood in Toronto where I currently reside. Apparently he was quite the popular politician as he has a whole square and amphitheater named for him! He even has this lovely bench. Maybe I'll see him sitting here one day...

PS: Hope you got your taxes done!

Very interesting and a nice bench shot! Please let me know, though, if you see that nice politician resting upon the bench!

Sure hope you get out to play golf soon. I think you showing signs of golf deprivation, a very serious illness which can be treated only with new clubs (you've already had the "doc" take care of that) and lots of playing time!

I saw Mel walking on Yonge St just a while ago but he lives a lot further south near Yonge & St Clair so he may not use that bench!

Maybe someday I'll have a bench... Not!

A bench with a name and a story, this would be perfect for aBoB!

Mel Lastman is quite a character - charismatic and controversial. (His wife is too.) Lastman owns a company called Bad Boy Furniture.

Never much liked Mel....
but a 'square' in NY was sorely needed!

I could sit on this bench all day pondering the PEARLS Condo façade!

When my time comes, the family has standing instructions to donate a bench for me.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
