O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

I wanted to take this time to wish all our neighbours to the north a very happy Canada Day! And although I usually reserve this annual warning for my "sisters" here in the US on the 4th of July, I suspect there are some of you up north who may benefit from a timely cautionary word.

No matter how patriotic you may feel and no matter how much celebrating you may do today, DO NOT--I repeat, DO NOT place these glow in the dark stars on your nipples and dance around. Not unless you never want to take them off again.

The mind boggles - I'm not even going to bother asking how you know this fact! (tee-hee)

BJ said...

Lordy, first thought was "how does she know THAT?"...but believe me, this is one of those questions that you don't have to answer!

And definitely - Happy Canada Day to our friends and neighbors!

Heckety said...

Hmmmmmmmmmmm, right! And my children complain that I'm unconventional? Can I post them to spend a week with you?

Mad about Craft said...

I'm with Ann - the mind boggles and what I am missing out on?

quiltmom said...

Well Kim,
I have been known to be starry eyed and gone to view the stars with my husband but I think I will steer clear of the glow in the dark variety VBG.. You are a hoot... Thanks for the giggle..
Thanks for your good wishes- its a lovely day not sweltering but pleasant and I am enjoying the first day of summer holidays.
There are supposed to plenty of fireworks around tonight..

Norma said...

Oh, you just made my day. I got this mental picture of the stars pointing south rather than up front like you could hope.

Thank you for the belly laugh!

I don't think you can get those off of anything!! When my daughter moved to her apartment last September, I looked up at the ceiling, only to find glow in the dark stars that had been PAINTED over. What were they thinking??

Quilter Kathy said...

I sure would love to know how you learned this fact!
Point taken...I'll never do it!
