Us Canadians celebrate July FIRST ...CANADA DAY...possibly watching a parade or a picnic, then a walk in the PARK across the lake about 60 miles away ...our foster Rottie too old to walk a lot ..our Canadian Flag is proudly showing at our home ...should take a pix and show TU members:-) ...remind me !!
Well Nel, seeing as I have to work on Canada Day (here in Quebec it's wierd - we can't work on our Fete Nationale Day which was a few weeks ago - but when it comes to Canada Day - well - we all work!).
