Happy Birthday, Eh!

Canada turns 140 today.

The blue Canadian Rockies are in front of me and the tiger lilies are in full bloom. What more does one need?

Happy Birthday Canada!

We're always talking about (aboot?) moving there someday. Only problem for us, as spoiled Californians, is the weather.

But the beauty, the people, the overall sensible politics of the place compared to the US...

Plus, where else do you have a public radio station with a phone number like 1-800-SAD-GOAT? (I may be remembering that wrong, but it always tickled us when we'd hear it on our travels).

That is so nice, Leah. I did a tour round the Canadian Rockies back when I was an adventuresome kiwi chicklet. Absolutely loved it.

Would you be the person that shows in my stats with the interesting animal type town name? That name always catches my eye.

Dawn, if you mean "Red Deer" that could well be where it comes up. I'm 50 miles west of that in a place called Rocky Mountain House.
I never tire of the mountains. I'm glad you took the opportunity to see them.

Hey Crabby, I didn't know about SAD GOAT radio. I'm sure you could adjust to our weather.
