I watched the fireworks from my balcony last night, as we celebrated 140 years of the birth of a nation. It's odd that although Canada is hundreds of years old, it's been a sovereign state for only 140 years. Indoors I watched a Canada Day edition of Just for Laughs from Montreal. We really have some of the best standup comics in the world. [The famous ones are in the U.S., but we keep growing them at home!!] My favorites were That Canadian Guy, the French female comic who did a side-splitting Celine Dion, and Thom Thomson, a Native who took some home truths and made them funny.
The last of the June bugs visited my balcony. I gave it a cross-eyed look, remembering the naughty things they did on my deckchair: It's July, your time is up. It shrugged its shoulders and left in a huff.
Have a beaujolais day!
