Wendy And Stepheny Visit

An otherwise regular visit from the gang in Bowmanville took a strange and unsettling turn today when Wendy, Stepheny, and her friend decided to take in The Eaton Centre before heading to our digs. Less than three hours after they left, a gunman opened fire in the new food court, killing two in what is reportedly a "targeted hit".

Of course, by the time the incident unfolded, everyone was on the GO Train home, after we'd all enjoyed dinner at the nearby Thomson Diner, where the boys charmed the very helpful staff and Carter put on quite a show (including a drum solo at home).

This is only the second such event to occur in the Yonge/Dundas area in recent memory(the other was on Boxing Day in 2005) but statistics provide little comfort when bullets fly so close to home (the boys' school was put into lockdown last winter when shots were exchanged on Richmond Street during a police chase).
