Before getting started today, a link for you. Authors For Oklahoma has its second blog up right here, with three more sets of books to be raffled off to benefit the American Red Cross in the wake of the Moore Oklahoma tornado. Check it out, and the instructions at the bottom of each blog as to how to participate. We'll be getting more blogs up soon enough.
Now then, to today's tomfoolery....
"A true Canadian is one who can make love in a canoe without tipping it." ~ Pierre Berton
"Sweetie, why haven't we ever done it in a canoe?" ~ Stephen Harper
"Let the name Trudeau be stricken from every history book in the land. Every archive and every database. Every internet site and every newspaper. Every monument and every building. Let his time in office be nothing more than a void in our history. Let the name of Trudeau be unheard and unspoken, erased from the memory of men, under penalty of being subjected to Preston Manning and Don Cherry talking to them for forty years. So let it be written, so shall it be done." ~ Secret Directive #4582, Prime Minister Harper's Office, August 2013
"I had tracked him for days on end. It didn't matter how far I'd have to go. If it was from Signal Hill all the way west to Tofino, I'd do it. If it meant hunting him from Point Pelee north to Tuktoyaktuk, I'd gladly do that too. There was no place my quarry could hide that I wouldn't follow. I would hunt him across the tundra, across the plains, across the mountains, across the Great Lakes. I would search in every corner of every city and every town. In every hole in the wall dive bar. In every place he could think of. It was only a matter of time. That infernal twit Ben Mulroney would pay for daring to ask me if Metallica was going to tour with Carly Rae Jepsen. For one thing, I didn't know or care who Carly Rae Jepsen was. For another, I wasn't that Lars Ulrich." ~ from the journals of RCMP Inspector Lars Ulrich
It's Canada Day tomorrow here, so of course I will be absent, off in the midst of thousands of crazy Canucks in our capital city. And I must be obliged to mark the occasion.
And without further ado, as I did last year, I'll give you places from each of the provinces and territories of the Great White North. Some I've been to. Others I would love to explore for myself. I'll be back with a blog for Wednesday, something similar for our American neighbours. Enjoy, and to all of my Canadian readers.... Happy Canada Day!
