His Gun Was Impressive

Over the course of the week leading up to this day, +Andy MacInnis​ and I (and others) had been saving our empty beer cans. Our intent was to distribute them to the children that called this place home. To them, they were currency. Food. Life.

At the entrance to the dump there was a large imposing man, fairly well dressed, standing near the doorway to the administrative building. Henchmen stood by the gate, ensuring we didn't gain entrance until we spoke with him. He approached the van, 'Wells of Hope' was printed in bold letters on its side. Sitting in the passenger seat, the large silver revolver jutting proudly from his waistband was inches from my face. It was not subtle.

His intent was to intimidate.

He owned this dump. This was his domain. The families that lived here, who built their homes from scraps of wood and discarded plastic atop mounds of trash, who harvested any and all organic waste they found for their meals, were allowed to do so by offering homage to him. I'm sure money was not the only currency.

He examined what we'd brought with us closely. Were there anything of value, he would want his cut. He was satisfied with what he saw.

He motioned to one of his men to open the gate and let us in. As Andy drove, children rushed to the car, eager to accept our offerings. 5 empty beer cans and a bar of soap each.

They smiled with excitement as they ran back to their mothers to show off what they'd earned. Simply by being first to my open window.

Story
Tagline
Son. Brother. Father. Friend.
Introduction
I am a son. I am a brother. I am a father. I am a friend.

I am the father of two strong and dynamic young women, just now emerging from childhood. Just over a decade ago, I decided to be a stay-at-home dad. They were 2 and 4 when I started, 4 and 6 when I finished, and it was the most fulfilling two years of my life.

Outside of a short stint in the southern US when I was 19, I've lived my entire life, born and raised, in Canada.

Excellent spot for either a night out with friends, a wind-down after work, or a couple of pints with your team-mates after working up a sweat. Staff are friendly, though they tend to be very busy so park your impatience at the door and kick-back and enjoy the atmosphere and the din of the crowd. Lots of TVs to keep you entertained and a small patio when the days are hot and sunny.
