Really, although today is the "official" day to go all patriotic here, it's just another day to say I love Canada and love being Canadian. When I talk about this great country I actually feel this little tingling of pride inside me. It's so cool knowing that I happened to be born right where I want to be!

I could go on and on and on about this beautiful country of ours, and I have done so a little in past years here on this blog. This year I just want to state categorically that I would not want to call anywhere else home, this is where I want to always permanently be. Sure, I'd like to be able to afford to travel to England or back to Maui for visits. I'd even like to have my own places there to lay my head down while I'm visiting.

But I want to always be able to come back home. Home is Canada. GOD I'm so in love with this country!

Happy Canada Day to my Canuk friends! Party hearty and safe!

A little slideshow I made:
A Tour of Canada

And to my American buddies in a few days, Happy 4th.!

And please see the post preceeding this one, there's a new Photo Contest up and running!

Love Jude

It was a relaxing day here for us, and tomorrow sister Pam and I are heading out for a possible photo shoot somewhere in our city. :-)

Hope you enjoyed your Canada Day even though the weather wasn't the greatest Bobbie!

Happy (belated) Canada Day to my Northern Sista! We are SO fortunate that our countries are allies, and it is very comforting having your great nation "sitting" atop the USA ;o)

Thanks for the July 4th wishes. It will be one humongous party-town down here on Sunday!
