First things first, an apology.  What I’m about to show you will make you waste the rest of your day, week and maybe life.

I noticed this morning that Google Maps has a new feature that lets you go back in time.  Not, like to ancient times. But to like the first time Google Maps started making street view maps.

Some examples in and around Calgary.

But mostly, I love it because it lets me go back in time and see the moment Google captured my dad mowing the lawn, while my dog relaxes in the sun.  RIP Moosehead Morrison.
