Happy 4th of July!
And a happy Canada Day to our “cousins” up north.
In my case, literally cousins. My ancestors came to Canada from Scotland pre-WWI, then moved west with relatives settling across the plains in Regina, Moose Jaw, and Vancouver. My grandmother married an American, moved to Southern California, and the rest is history.
While my recent roots are Scottish and Canadian, I’m 100% proud to be an American where we still have the right of free speech, the right to self defense, and the right to practice our own religion unmolested by the damned government. (I’ll get off my soap box now)
