July 1 was extra special this year

Almost Canada day and this post is from 2017 and i hope my friends will enjoy it again. There are five or so links inserted that open a new tab to provide more information or music. I hope you find them all in good working order. I particularly love the brief rendition of O Canada.
My yard is looking great right now with sunflowers and we started picking and canning cherries from the tree in the backyard yesterday.

It was Beach Cruise weekend, an annual event and i blogged about it in 2018. If you love old cars use search on my blog using Penticton and voila!
Happy day!

Life and Random Thinking

July 1 is Canada Day, ironically I am writing this on July 4 which is USA’s national day.

Allow me to say that over the years of travels to the United States, and interactions with some fellow bloggers in the USA, my fondness for their nation keeps improving.  I know that my family tree is on both sides of the Canada/USA border as two brothers immigrated to New York in the early 1900’s, one brother stayed in the US, and the other went to and stayed in Canada. As a result, it seems natural that I like the USA, but my heart is Canadian as this is my home that I love and am proud of.

This Canada Day was especially memorable as my yard is flourishing with flowers, and we added a Canadian flag to hang from our front deck at our home. It looked grand!
