Happy Canada Day! (repost)

Oh Canada,

Our home and native land

True patriot's love

At all thy son's command.

With flowing hearts,

We see thee rise,

The True North strong and free.

From far and wide,

Oh, Canada,

We stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land

Glorious and free

Oh, Canada, we stand on guard for thee

Oh, Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

Happy Canada Day from down south in Detroy-it, eh? :-)

Although I don't mind, the tattoo and the bikini telling us the obvious is a bit redundant.

Nice job! I have distant relatives in Canada and loved the "eh" when they'd visit.

My coworker is Canadian and we decorated his office with Canadian things such as the Canadian flag, Canadian money, Canadian tea cakes, it's insane.

His bday is on Canada Day, he was born in the capital of Canada and he speaks both languages.

You don't get more Canadian that that, and I've had enough Canada for one day.

When we lived in Buffalo, NY, Tim Horton's had just moved to town as well. Now I'm in WI and I miss my "Timbits"! (We called them "Timmies.")

Thanks for this rollicking appreciation of a truly great nation, great neighbors, and excellent curlers, too!! Amy
