I wanted to talk about the beautiful Island I live on. Two of these pictures I got from The CBC Montreal cam. The one on the bottom, from Old Montreal, I took last summer. I feel very fortunate I was raised on this Island. I have lived in six of her neighborhoods. I was at Expo 67 as a two year old. I was at the 1976 Olympics as a 12 year old. I have been to Allouettes, Concords, then Allouettes (again) games again as a fan with my Dad. I have been to Expos games with friends. I have been to a Habs game on Halloween. The concerts, The Jazz fest, The Just For Laughs fest, Canada Day parades, St Patricks Day parades, I was even in a Grey Cup parade.
I was at that Canada rally just before the referendum. I got a free Quebec flag that day. See that is where the sponsorship money went. It got me a free flag. Thanks Canada! No, you can't have it back!
This has been a great place to spend my first 40 years of life. I am just not sure I will spend my next 40 years here. That is still up in the air.
Go Habs Go!!!
so much left unsaid...
I love you Montreal!!!
Unrelated to this post: George of The Hour www.cbc.ca/thehour read my email on The Hour today. It relates to his story about the F word. Cool! Thanks for responding. Nope I don't use the F word. I still love many people who do though.
Yes, I have been known to swear in French and not all French swear words are related to religion by the way.
