03Aug20: cloistered…


Andy hopped onto the glider arm. I barely could focus on him in this photo. Regardless, he satisfied his curiosity about the smart phone and left on important kitty business.

Post 1439: an early greeting…!

Today’s not the big day for my Canadian friends, but I need to celebrate a day earlier because I have a personal celebration for tomorrow!

That said, July 1st, tomorrow, is Canada Day for my Canadian friends! I hope they have a safe, great celebration of the founding of their much beloved and respected country. There is a reason Americans abroad wear Canadian flag patches…! Ha!

The history of the Canadian flag is very interesting. Most people reading this may not realize it only became the official flag of Canada in 1965. But you can read about it all here:


HAPPY CANADA DAY, Canadian friends~

[…yeah, I know it’s almost here, but not today…don’t come back tomorrow for Canadian-themed greetings because this is “it”…no, I won’t give you a beer, now go away…(well, maybe tomorrow, but it’ll be American domestic!)…yeah, I know it’s tomorrow, dang it…SHOO, you Canadian pest!]



Andy doesn’t understand why he and his brother Dougy aren’t the “big thing” today!

(I tried to sing “O! Canada!” but quickly realized I don’t know the words!)
