Richard and his dog, Rocket, feeling patriotic on Canada Day.
Let's run it up the flag pole and see if anyone salutes.
It really is Canada Day here.
Today, July 1st.
And this is the maxim that I traditionally post to celebrate this day.
In the past, though, I've used
"Richard and his dog, Rocket, proudly salute the flag on Canada Day:
"Stand up and be counted."
This time I thought I'd go a little further out on the maple tree limb and use a different quotation.
We'll be joining friends to go and ooh and ahh and slap biting mosquitoes as we watch the Canada Day fireworks that our little village explodes to mark the event. It's a pretty decent show, traditionally ending in a wall of smoke from the big finale.
Happy Canada Day, my fellow Canucks!
