Celebration Day!

My homeland of Canada is celebrating its 142 birthday today!The maple leaf will be displayed and flying all over the land. Although I'm not there to join in on the festivities, my spirit finds its way across the border today. A sweet friend from Florida who is vacationing in Wisconsin called me early this morning to wish me a Happy CanadaDay. They are at an international camping rally and she tells me Canadians are spotted everywhere proudly wearing the signature red and white tee-shirt. Although I can't be there, I'll do my best to be a good alien and wear the red,white and blue on the 4th.
My husband and I do have another reason to celebrate today--it's our 37th wedding anniversary.Hence the reason I'm not in Canada. I can assure you, our celebration will not compete with what's going on up north and we probably won't reach the same milestone in years but each day has been worth it.

  1. Well, happy anniversary!

    I went to a boarding school in Kenya and on July 1st we would all sing "Oh Canada" for our Canadian students. :)
