Celebrating Citizenship

A tweet alerted me to this wonderful blog post by a woman whose husband became a Canadian Citizen yesterday.

I've attended a lot of citizenship ceremonies and she captures the experience nicely. The only part she left out is that there is always a Mountie in full red serge in attendance, and everyone - everyone - insists on having their picture taken with the Mountie. It's very sweet, too.

And that if Mama Alice is attending the ceremony she will ululate, which is awesome.

Very cool.

There was a point when Canada seemed to be in my future, and, no, not because of the draft. When I think back on that-which-did-not-happen, I sometimes wonder which makes me more misty, thinking of her or thinking of life in the Maritimes.

I firmly believe that, if you like where you're at, you should not speak badly of the road which got you there, and I like where I'm at. But, still, that's a pretty good country you got up there, lady.

Tell Mojo to look out - the government done fell and you can never tell when it's going to hit a kitty's haid.

Mike, you're still welcome. We could use you.

Brent, that may be the comment of the year. I was thinking just today of the day the gov'mint fell on poor Ronnie's haid.
