Hubby Goes Racing at the Dragstrip!

Hubby's ride along was in a '66 Valient drag car. Speed at the end of the quarter mile was 109 MPH. We didn't get the E.T. but he was running in the low 13 second range earlier in the day.

Happy Canada Day

This is our Flagpole slash Scarlet Runner Garden on a rainy day in 2008.

It's Canada's birthday today and I'm very proud to be living in Canada. I also really love the fact that it's a holiday and that I'm taking a few extra days off, as well. Ya hooo for me!

We purchased a new flag and Hubby raised it up even higher so now when you drive over the crest of the hill it is the first thing you see of our property. Hanging proud!!! There are lots of celebrations going on today all over and I'm not sure what we will be doing because the weather is very overcast and looking like rain. It has been great for our garden, though. When we finally get some sun I'm sure the garden will just pop.

Saying the word pop has again made me think of Michael Jackson the King of Pop. He will be sadly missed by me but I will always treasure the time I saw the Jackson Five in concert at the EX. To me "Thriller" has to be the best video of all time and one of my favorite older songs is "Ben". He may have had a wacky life but he had great talent that I feel will be hard to replace. This I thank him for, may he rest in peace.

I think Hubby and I may be planning a day trip which may include our favorite Chinese food restaurant. We live such simple lives that I'm happy just to be able to get away together.

Enjoy the pictures
Happy Canada Day Everyone!
