Canada Day - back to the Edwardians

Yesterday, July 1 was Canada's birthday, 140 years - and we celebrated. On the front lawn of the historic Government House in Regina, Saskatchewan, time stood still. Actually, time went backwards. A beautiful well-orchestrated time warp that took us back to the Edwardian days with parasols, and long gowns and a carousel. There was free old time stick candy and candy floss for the children, a old-time band, a military fly over, horse drawn landau carriage and, of course, the national anthem.

And to end a perfect day, as the evening cooled, back home on our deck there was beer, simmered beans and pulled pork sandwiches - the meat smoked for an amazing 10 hours, and last but definitely best - the company of friends.

Hope your Canada Day was every bit as good!

"A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and w
oods, but it is a principle; and patriotism is loyalty to that principle." George William Curtis
