Happy Canada Day to all you Canadians, from Arizona. A year ago, I was riding my bike at Whistler B. C. Bruce

Sorry I don't know the words to "Oh Canada."  I'm good at "God Save the Queen," though.  Grin

If you wanted to sing God Save The Queen we  would stop what we were doing to listen.

Happy Canada Day, from Colorful Colorado.  At 7,000 feet elevation where I live, it is now a comfortable 50 degrees.

My last trip to Canada was over 40 years ago but I remember one incident quite well.  One of my associates asked a waitress at a roadside diner near Ottawa: "Hey honey, how about some basted eggs?"  She waved a spatula in his face and said "I'll baste you honey".  She was laughing all the while, as the guy was already "basted" from a party on the US side. (I was the designated driver).

Let July 1st be Canadian Railroads day as well. Happy day to yesterday! That's when I remodeled my friend's layout, that 7.0 grade was just terrible!

It's OK Gene, most Canadians don't know the words either.  Smiley

They do know the Star Spangled Banner though.

        A few years ago my wife & I took a Cruise to Canada over the canada day weekend. We got off the ship to shop & sight see, many shops were closed but the ones that stayed open for us made out like bandits.
       I also remember when the ship went to leave a Kilt laden man playing
Amazing Grace on the bag pipes. That was the coolest rendition of one of my favorite  songs I've ever heard.

I listened to my new Lenoard Cohen CD today (the recent Capitol release of his 1967 debut album) in hono(u)r of it.   I guess I could run up to the Publix and get a Coffe Crisp bar too, so happy that someone has them in Nashville, TN now!

Greetings.

I remember having my first Cadbury Caramello bar while visiting my AB cousins in the 1960's.  My taste buds thought they'd died and gone to heaven.  A flavor to look forward to every time we'd visit. 

Decades later, it became available in the US.  A bike ride to the local Fast Fuel & Fajitas vs. a 1500 mile trip for "a taste of Canada". 

Unfortunately, we don't get up there quite as often now with the high fuel prices. 

Hmm.  No answers yet on my Canadain trivia questions?  C'mon, Canucks...

(Hint: Actual Canadian historical dates....not my Aunts' and Uncles' birthdays...)

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik
