Ah yes, today is Canada Day!!!

I remember when Lisa Rose and Andy lived in 'the states' so many years ago. We knew that they secretly longed to be Canadians when they would discreetly call off work annually on July 1st. None of us suspected anything until we saw the tree decorated in their living room window. The warm glow of all those tiny lights made us realize that they were destined to become one with those "North of the Border."

What further tipped us off is that their brilliant son, Andrew, could never name the US presidents, but could rattle off with ease that Canada Day marks the creation of the Dominion of Canada through the British North America Act on July 1, 1867, uniting three British Colonies, the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Canada. The three colonies united to form one country divided into four provinces.

Finally, what made our neighborhood as well as Kerry's (when Lisa Rose and Andy lived in Texas) know that they were meant to be Canadians is when they were unable to recite ANY part of the "Star-Spangled Banner" but knew OH SO EASILY every single word to "Oh Canada"!

Hats off to Canadians everywhere on this great day of independence....even to those who took the entry test and became Canadians (Lisa Rose & Andy) ~~~wink!

Hugs, eh

Stacy

How much coffee did you have this morning and what did you put in it ? ? ? So I see your studying Canadian History now I understand your also studying Russian History, or maybe thats just to learn how to make White Russians for Nashville. Anyway Andy and I will be thinking of you on Happy 4th and all our family and friends back in the good old USA.
