Good morning. It the Friday before the long weekend here and the sun is shining. We are suppose to have nice weather all weekend long. I am so happy about that. I am looking forward to some much needed relaxation. After working overtime last weekend I am ready for some time off. We were going to go camping but decided to just stay home and get some things done that I have been putting off, like housework. Hope you all enjoy your day/night!! **It is Victoria Day weekend here. Monday is a federal Canadian holiday celebrated on the last Monday preceding May 25, in honour of Queen Victoria's birthday. It is only celebrated in Canada and Scotland. It is also celebrated as the official start of summer where everybody opens up their camps and cottages. All campgrounds and tourists spots open, etc.

Why are you mentioning a 'long weekend'? Is there anything special I don't know about?

@Happy2BeMe Thank you! In my opinion, such info belongs in the post. I'm certainly not the only member who doesn't know which holidays are celebrated in Canada.

@Happy2BeMe Hmmm... if you WANT it to attack someone, I am glad it was looking at you like that, and not me! Sorry, but when you break it down, I am protecting MY tush!
