One thing about getting older is that things around you change. Change is a good thing, but sometimes it is sad to see things go. I have been living on the island of Ile Perrot, on and off, for over 25 years. First alone as a young man, then with a wife and children.
As you come over the bridge from Montreal onto the island the first thing you see is Daisy Antiques, it has been there as long as I can remember, as long as I have been coming to Ile Perrot. One day, not long ago, as my wife and I headed into Montreal she turned to me and said “Look!” and there was a sign at Daisy Antiques “For Sale”.
I couldn’t believe it. Once I thought about it I was not all that surprised. It had been quite a few years since business was booming at Daisy’s. The center of town had moved over the years and sort left Daisy on the outskirt. But somethings you just think will always be there. Another reason to not take things for granted I guess.
