Rooftop Toronto and the CNE

I've had a busy past few days and have been around the city, so I figured I'd post some pics here.

The CNE is an annual fair in Toronto and is the fourth largest of its kind in North America.

When you're alone and life is making you lonely you can always go, downtown!

I can remember from when I was very young seeing her on her North American debut Ed Sullivan Show! She was slightly out of breath and a bit scattered looking at first, because apparently they had rushed her directly from the airport from her flight that had been delayed due to a blizzard! She and Dusty Springfield were a special class of performer. Thanks for the vids, guys. She has an amazing voice for 76.
