Last week I wimped out of my Time Capsule project (my door to the past).
The booklet I pulled out was distributed by our Member of Parliament in 1988 detailing the reasons why the Mulroney-Reagan Trade Deal was not a good idea.
Quite the coincidence that I should find it now, given that President Trump has just opened the door to renegotiating the trade deal (now NAFTA)….
I did try to make a blackout poem with a page of the text but it just didn’t work.
This week the Time Capsule produced the 1995 Quebec Referendum booklet giving the pros and cons of voting oui/yes or non/no to opening the door to Quebec leaving Canada.
I really don’t want to remember the night of the Referendum. The result was so close. Scary. It took a long time for the sad sour feeling to fade.
I didn’t feel like playing around with that (plus it was in French – fine if we’re chatting but not so easy if I’m trying to be creative!) so I broke my own rules and dipped into the Time Capsule a second time.
Ah! Much better! Real (printed) photos! And a door among them…
The photo is pre-digital (and I’ve no idea where the negative is) so I had to scan it to upload it but then had trouble pasting it into this post. Do you know the trick for doing that properly? If so, I’d be very grateful if you’d share the secret or put a link in the comments box below.
This old barn is one of my favourites in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. I love the ramp up to the higher level and the huge doors that open onto the threshing floor.
I’ve been passing the barn for more than twenty-five years but every time I stop to take a photo. Just can’t resist!
