Bomb Threat in CP

Monday morning Bapa and I headed to Arnprior to pick up our Miss D
Workers were going to be at their house all day replacing the walls that were damaged in a major roof leak.
 So lots of hammering and clattering.
Of course the girl would not get a nap so off to the Nona Bapa day resort.

When we arrived at the Corner --- there was a bit of playing .. some colouring .. a wee snack then off for a nap in her new big girl bed.

I went online just to check some Facebook and emails and saw this.


In our town --- Carleton Place is a small town of 10,000 and is about 46 km (29 mi)   west of Ottawa

This is only a couple of blocks from us......

The rumours swirling about was that an unidentified male was held up in the laundromat and he had a bomb!  A BOMB??????

Thank goodness after quite a few hours of what the police called " a serious and potentially dangerous situation" it was diffused without incident.

We have not been given too much info on it except to say he has been arrested and there was NO bomb.

I was ready to just pack up and head to Arnprior. I DID NOT want to be here. I actually felt unsafe in my home which made me feel scared, angry, and sad And of course we had our granddaughter here!!

Once D was up we had a bit of outdoor play then back home.
Had a very nice dinner at East Side Mario's --- which is a 2 minute walk from the van N's.

This incident made me realize that no matter where you live your life can be affected by disenchanted people --- be they terrorists -- people with mental issues -- or someone just pissed off about something.

The pictures I used were from this local website

All is good now.

Yes, we were only aware of this from the evening news. Crazy! So glad that it turned out ok and no one hurt.
