Happy Birfday Canada!

As an occasional resident of Our Northern Neighbor with fond memories of living there I would like to wish all my Canadian readers (both of you) a Happy Canada Day! The first time I lived in Canada I was Too Young for school, and the second time we left before I could even get registered for school, so I have no idea of how old they are, and I’m Too Lazy To Google today so I leave the age as an Exercise For The Student (tossing a bone to both the teachers reading this blog). I don’t know if there is any overlap between occupation and residence as my subscriber information isn’t that granular. I have some occupations because I know those people (HI Sioux! HI Cindy!) and my subscriber list used to have a location so I knew roughly who lived where.

Anywho, who wants to do a virtual Canada Day with maple syrup over ice cream and back bacon, and fireworks if you can and beer? I’ll do Shiner instead of Molson, because Molson is kinda not available locally right now because COVID19 (I guess?) and Molson is not the stuff Canadians actually drink. I’ll have a cuppa Red Rose tonight before I go to bed, because I can get the Real Thing from my NY in-laws across the border from Canada. They have it in their grocery stores, but I don’t see it down here in TX. Then we’ll get drunk and sing “Oh Canada!” probably off-key and forgetting most of the words, even though you can Google it.

O Canada!
Our home and native land
True patriot love
In all our sons command
(This is about as far as I can get drunk)
With glowing hearts
We see thee rise
The True North, strong and free
From far and wide
O Canada
We stand on guard for thee
God keep our land
Glorious and free
O Canada we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada we stand on guard for thee!

Yay! Maple Syrup and angry beavers! Moose!
