“It’s the 24th of May, the Queen’s Birthday, if we don’t get a holiday, we’ll all run away!”
So kids used to sing, but in the Old Country, no royal or imperial holiday today, though pleasingly Canada still celebrates it as Victoria Day!
Although, with typically Canadian individuality, it was actually a ‘day-off’ last Monday!
Some Canadians may not like it, but without the Empire, there’d be no Canada, unless you mean a dank French colony, though I have to say that nowadays, our old enmities, the key issue of loyalty versus disloyalty, have had to take second place.
British and French Canadians, and, to be fair, many others of various origins, have seen the need to come together, as the very fabric of Western values comes under attack from the multicult cultural marxists, the heirs of Turdeau – not least his son!
However, I won’t make the day dreary by dwelling on that bizarre boy.
Meanwhile, here in Indonesia, we get a holiday tomorrow, which I aim to spend with somebody nice, who is dropping by today – for the weekend, I hope, to provide me with a bacon and egg breakfast, my idler’s delight of a Sunday!
When I get agreeable visitors, blogging takes a back seat, so pray indulge my indolence.
