Home Towns of my readers and followers
My home town. A great place to grow up in the 1950's and 1960's. It was the Centre of the Universe in my book, "Barking From the Front Porch". Clicking on the sign will take you to some Kuroki nostalgia.
Just 15 miles east of Kuroki. A great place to stop to have a coffee and apple fritter at Wadena Bakery while you read the Wadena News. Click on the image to take you to Wadena Bakery Facebook page.

Rama is 22 miles east of the Centre of the Universe. Like many small towns on the prairies, because of rural depopulation, it has lost much of its commerce. There remains a popular religious tourist attraction, the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, constructed under the influence of Rev Anthony Sylla, a Polish born priest, during the years 1939 to 1944. Clicking on the photo will take you to another view of the Grotto.
What a great name for an amazing small city! Moose Jaw has capitalized by being a terrific tourist destination. The Spa, the murals, the Al Capone connection and the Tunnels along with Canada's Aerobatic Squadron, The Snowbirds, make Moose Jaw a great place to visit. Click on the photo to see video of the Snowbirds in action.
Isn't it terrific that one town in Saskatchewan is in competition with the Big Apple?

The Oil Capital of Manitoba. Click on the photo to visit Virden home page.
Gladstone, Manitoba deserves mention if only because of its unique mascot. Clicking on the photo of "Happy Rock" will take you to the Gladstone Wikipedia page where, interestingly, Gladstone is described as a former town. If you are in the vicinity, stop for a photo op and enjoy a treat at the local bakery.
