Happy 150th Canada!

Have a great summer holiday weekend fellow North Americans!

Hope you take a break from your DIY and have a good BBQ or picnic outdoors with friends, family, and beer. :-)

Yes ours is July 1st up here, and this is our 150 anniversary so the fireworks budgets should be pretty good.
Have a good one everyone but play safe! LOL.

I got the long weekend. I also took this week off, oh and next week too.
Well, and the week after that .... well the whole month.... and next month.
Oh yeah, I'm retired :mrgreen: I keep forgetting :lol:

Kidding aside, I'm busier now than when I was working... don't know how I ever found the time for a 7-3 job 8-)

Nice, ain't it? We get to sit back and let Shannon do all the heavy lifting. :twisted: :mrgreen:


and you're right, time does seem to slip by a tad more quickly these days than it use to. Is this what happens when you crest the hill? :shock: :lol: :lol:

Well it was all over the news. A sesquicentennial is a big deal. I've been reading more CBC and BBC lately because I am just so burnt out and depressed with US national news.

I hear ya! While it may seem like USA's ordeal is dragging on, there are reasons for it. When the hammer drops, it ain't gonna be pretty, and everybody's ducks had better be in a row.
