Day 142: Dressed for Timmy's

Day 142: Dressed for Timmy's, originally uploaded by susanvg.

I pulled up at Tim Horton's on my way to Casselman. A woman in a bridal gown stood outside. Was she picking up refreshments for the wedding reception? "Several dozen Tim Bits and some jelly doughnuts, please" Her friends were dressed casually, many with cameras hanging around their necks. The bride wore flip flops with her gown - quite the sight to see her trouncing around, a friend holding the train and her flip flops flapping with each step. I guess you can never be too dressed up to go Tim Horton's

Note - for the non-Canadians - Tim Horton's is a coffee and doughnut shop


  1. This is hilarious! I think you're becoming hyper-observant now that you're doing these daily stories. Thanks for the chuckle!

  2. Great shot! Funny place to go in your wedding garb. Wonder what her story was??

    We were in Canada last summer and saw Tim Horton's, oh, every mile or so (!!) and the lines at the drive through windows were SO long we finally had to stop at one to see what all the fuss was about.

    Donuts...definitely worth the fuss! :-)

  3. Wow! This love affair we Canadians have with Tim's should be the subject of a thesis or two!

  4. Maybe she was just dressing up? A friend of mine actually stopped for a milkshake on her wedding day on the way to the church. She was feeling a little faint and thought the milkshake would do the trick.

  5. Nice capture! It's interesting that she's the only one dressed up. If those were her bridesmaids, wouldn't they be dressed up too?

  6. Consensus around here after talking it over - it may be a bachelorette weekend and she was made to wear the dress. Hence she is the only one dressed up. But we'll never know!
