Happy Canada Day!

Today is the day we celebrate all things Canuckian. For example, we go the extra mile and pan fry our back bacon in the shape of the CBC logo . . .


. . . or, for the traditionalists among us, we fry it outside on the BBQ while wearing our best plaid lumberjack shirt.


We like to get together and chillax with old friends . . .


. . . all while maintaining our legendary Canadian politeness, of course.*

When I was growing up, I spent numerous trips with family, going up into Canada, which only reinforced my love of cabins, woods in the Fall, clear lakes, and brisk oxygen filled air. I dreamed of someday moving to Canada, but that was one that never came true.

But I'm there in spirit! So yes! Happy Canada Day! Let the party begin!!!

I love me some Canadian Bacon and Molson Beer...rarely together, of course.

Btw, that moose looks suspiciously like an Alaska Moose.

Have a safe and sane Canadian Day D!
