|The midway tonight at 8:30; these people do nothing fast|

Anyway, let's return to the better memories of yesterday. I would like to share a few more pictures and videos that I took on Canada Day and...then I think it's time to crash.
|Perhaps an Atlanta Braves fan?|
We spotted this flag on Woodbine yesterday during the parade. I can't tell if this was done by accident, if it was meant to be a political statement, or if the person who lives there was a member of the US Marines Colour Guard in 1992.
|Red, white and bloody caesar|
Here's a shot of Grumpy P in his Canada Day "finest". We're on the balcony, waiting for the sun to go down which, looking at my outfit, clearly cannot happen quickly enough.
And finally, here are a couple of short videos I shot at the parade yesterday. The first is of the crazy Shriner cars, zipping around on the street in front of us (there are sometimes as many as eight or nine of these cars in the parade but only three yesterday; I wonder if they're connected with the people who messed up the midway?):
The second is of a concertina band whose name and origin I do not know, sorry to say. I enjoyed their sound, but I turned off the camera too quickly: they had just begun playing The Maple Leaf Forever when the video stops, sadly:
Well, another summer long weekend has come to an end. This one seemed to go by faster than ever before. Time to crank up the white noise of the A/C in our bedroom so we can try to block out the sounds of the myriad morons of the neighbourhood who must have missed the actual fireworks yesterday and are now randomly shooting off bottle rockets all over the place, which has the additional wonderful effect of causing every dog for blocks to start barking at the same time. It's an annual "tradition" around here; maybe this year they'll stop before midnight. Here's hoping!
Hope you had a wonderful, happy, sunny and safe weekend wherever you were, in Canada or elsewhere.
