Happy Canada Day!

Wonderful sunny day at Diefenbaker Park. The Optimists Day in the Park is always a great opportunity to celebrate our home. We reaffirmed our oaths, ate our annual helping of dry ribs, visited the booths, people watched, and enjoyed how much fun everyone had as they appreciated where they live. On the way home, we passed a solitary cyclist showing his pride on the streets of Nutana.

And just for the record. Here’s the way the sentence was supposed to go: It was in 1534 that Jacques Cartier paddled over from France to ‘discover’ Canada, but it was home to many long before that –150 years ago, Canada became a federation. Yes, I know Cartier didn’t ‘paddle,’ but sailed. Sometimes my sense of humour fails me. Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play? In other words, I hope you enjoy the HOME Summer 2017 article, Happy Birthday Canada!”
