It feels strange to be in a “foreign” country on our major national holiday, but it is OK. We are in very friendly territory. We happily celebrated Canada Day recently, and there is something very special planned for today that we will claim for our own celebration.
We are all going to the famous Calgary Stampede and Parade, which promises to be a fabulous, family event. Can’t wait! We are outta here at 7a—that is the bad news, plus we won’t be back to the CG till late. We shall manage. I have camera batteries charged, water bottles, hat, snacks, jacket…what am I missing???
I hope all of you have a safe and memorable weekend, wherever you are, giving thanks for our freedom.
