Happy Canada Day / (Early) Independence Day


As I sit in my lounger on a rainy day watching the Canada Day celebrations from our nation's capital, happy Canada Day to my fellow travelers and an early happy Independence Day to my southern neighbours.

In spite of any number of things that seem to drive us to drink sometimes, I think we can agree both nations are pretty darn good places to live.

Cheers all.

Spent many a Dominion Day at Crystal Beach growing up. Sad to say I'm not pc, just old.

I remember having to sing God Save the Queen in elementary school and yeah Canada is/was part of her dominion, supposedly.

2017 is Canada's 150th anniversary. Yay. Boy we are young.

I remember seeing bldgs in Europe that had corner stones with dates on them from the 1100's etc. Visited Mozart's birthplace in Salzburg, Vienna and it is that old.

We just had the 3 Amigos Summit.

I imagine Obama and El Presidente of Mexico went home with one of these.

Maybe a hockey stick and jar of Maple Syrup too.

Good Story and Yeah Canada is a great place. We all get along and tolerate each other well.

And the best part is Habitat for Humanity is a Christian organization and the 2 groups have no problems working together.

Rush was one of my favorites. Especially "Working Man" and the really old stuff like By- Tor and the snow dog.
