But losing everything is like the sun going down on me”

The sun proverbially set on an era yesterday (September 2, 2019) with the last runs of the TTC’s ALRV articulated streetcars. Long after their expected lifespan, they kept trundling along serving the people of Toronto. The final two in service ran on the Monday of Labour Day long weekend giving free rides through the core on Queen Street, their primary home. I didn’t go out, I wanted the day off from doing anything that required leaving the house, and knew they’d be crazy busy, but it looks like those who go out did had a great time.
And as is always the case when I abuse music in my posts, I give you, the actual song in context…Ladies and Gentlemen…George Michael and Sir Elton John:
