Happy Canada Day

        Today, July first, is Canada's birthday!  

       We are 148 years old! 

        Our birthday was originally called Dominion Day as we were first known as the Dominion of Canada.

        Most communities have some type of celebration today to mark the occasion. 

        So to all my Canadian followers  HAPPY CANADA DAY! And if anybody else wants to join us in celebration HAPPY CANADA DAY  to you too. We have been known to accept  many people in different circumstances. I hope we continue to make people welcome.

    1. We have a good anthem but it's hard for the regular guy to sing. It gets too high for the regular singer.

  11. Hi Red, It is kind of interesting that Canada's birthday is on July 1 and USA's is just 3 days later. Hmmm ... is this just coincidence? In any event, hope you enjoyed the big day up there!
