My son and family arrived a couple of days ago for a visit, so I haven't taken much time to be on here, but I do wish all of my Canadian fellow DCers Happy Canada Day!!!

Was hoping to get a nice compare/contrast thread going. Guess I should have called it 1st of July/4th of July...

Good thing we grilled yesterday, just woke up to a might thunderstorm, with hail...
Happy Fourth of July (also known as Independence Day)!
Spent the evening last night trying to watch all of John Adams, didn't make it.

This is big because we almost lost him 4 times during the last 2 months.

Happy July 4th to all my American friends!
i am so glad he is better. i know it has been really hard for you. hope this means that things are looking.

my friend wally is just the same. saw my grandson today, he is a respiratory therapist. he happened to draw her as a patient. he did not know her and was surprised to see my picture in her room. her daughter took it there. he is not a doctor of course but said it is really sad to see. how did i get so gloomy when this is a good day for you.

take care
babe

We had leftover ribs/beans/potato salad today, then made these tonight for supper. Apple pie filling in eggroll wrappers with home made vanilla/nutmeg/cinnamon ice cream.

Wyogal, that dessert looks/sounds awesome! So does your dinner, even as leftovers! Happy 4th (though it is probably over where you are).

Thanks! Just finished watching our town's fireworks show. We went to a nearby parking lot on a hill, looked across town at them. Our kids are up at the location, we didn't want to pay a parking fee or fight traffic! They have bands, had an indoor football game, beer garden, etc.

We have similar celebrations up here on Canada Day. I remember for several years going to the local park for a pancake breakfast and they had a fair for the kids. Later people would have picnic dinners and stay for the fireworks. I haven't gone for years.

Bucky, I thought I'd die laughing. I remember my father and his brothers talking about accidentally killing a Canada goose many years ago and it was a protected or endangered species, and they were nervous about it. Now you can hardly get through them in some golf courses (I don't golf, but have seen them!)

I was once in Washington, camping, on Victoria Day. The campground was full of Canadians celebrating, and we had a blast.
