I hope you at least got some red and white cupcakes. I didn't, but I really want one.
Eva won a t-shirt or something today from Definitely Not the Opera today (on CBC), and so did her friend in Toronto, for identifying Joel Plaskett's song True Patriot Love in last week's Lost In Translation session! This is where they take song lyrics, put them through a translation site a number of times and then translate back into English. Woohoo! More t-shirts!
Today would have been both my dad's and Maureen's dad's birthdays. How odd, eh?
Every since he's been gone, we've always walked around with a beer cap in one eye for a while on July 1 in honour of my dad, because that would have been his idea of humour. It really should be an Extra Old Stock cap, but we don't drink a lot of beer and we had to go with what was available.
Maureen tells me that she was going to drink a shot of rum and smoke a cigar with her dad on his birthday, before he passed.
I'm passing on the stogey, but have done the beer cap in the eye thing for my papa and now am going to down a shot in the memory of Maureen's dad.
Happy birthday, dads.
Happy Canada Day.
