Good morning myLot friends. Today is a holiday here in Canada. It is Canada Day. There will not be any large gatherings this year due to the situation at hand. We are excited to be able to drive down to spend part of the day with our son and daughter-in-law. We are looking forward to seeing them both as well as our granddoggie, Ellie. Today will be the last time that we visit our son in his current home, they are moving and will be out of that home in the next few weeks. Happy Canada Day to all who celebrate!

@moffittjc Thanks. You will probably notice when I write about Canada, how much I love our country. My grandparents, who immigrated from Belgium during hard times, taught me that.

Thanks, it will be a very small and quiet one in comparison to years gone by, but it will be safe.

@cherigucchi Yes, we all love to celebrate our country's birthday. My hubby and I used to go away every year to celebrate and enjoy the activities offered by the city that we chose to holiday in. I miss the easiness that our lives provided us back then, hopefully some of the easiness returns.

Thank you. Today is the day that our country first began. My grandparents, who immigrated from Belgium, always taught me that this was the best country in the world to live in, and that I should always be so very thankful that I live here. I remember those words every day, but especially on Canada Day.

Thank you Kharla. We had a lot of fun together. They had Ellie to the groomer recently and with her short hair you can really tell that she has lost a bit of weight. She is healthy, but they put her on a diet and she looks good.

Happy Canada day, Julia and all Canadians here. I should be able to remember that day as it's something for me to but probably but next year I'll wonder what it was.

Thank you. I am surprised, with you being in Michigan that you did not know. Your state borders our province, and there have been a lot of international celebrations, over the course of today and your holiday, that have gone on for decades. We used to go to the Freedom Festival in Windsor, which of course is across the river from Detroit. They always had an amazing fireworks display. Happy Independence Day, a few days early, but I hope that you enjoy it.

Thanks, we did have a lot of fun together, and this afternoon her mother dropped in. We have not seen her since before corona, and it was a lot of fun having her with us. I have been worried about her, she has been on a stress leave from work for almost a year now, she is not well.

Good morning. We’re at our son’s place now. The house looks bare without decor on the walls of course the stacks of boxes add a certain something to the place. I hope that you have a great day today.

Have a great holiday! I haven't done anything for our Fourth of July in a long time, even without the pandemic. I used to enjoy it when I was younger though. I'm glad you get to spend the day with your son and his family.

Yes, we have changed things up over the years also. In the not so distant past, my hubby and I have gone away for a few days to enjoy the holiday activities of the city that we chose to stay in. We always visited an area near a lake, this is the hottest part of our summer. Whatever you choose to do on the 4th, I hope that you enjoy yourself. Remember the importance of the day.

Good morning Fredo. That is a cool song isn't it? There was a televised special in March where a lot of the musically talented Canadians took part and this song was part of it. It was to lift everyone's spirits due to the lockdowns. Have a great day today, stay hydrated if its hot hot hot there like it is here.
