Sweet Canada Day yesterday, holiday today! Gonna float in the pool and drink beer all day, I know, it’s rough…
Yesterday was Sunday. Most folks already had it off. Now us Yanks, we have our big Independence Day holiday Wednesday. Holiday in the middle of the week! Woo-hoo! And nobody is going to do much all week on account of the holiday. /s
Of course what goes around comes around. Feel free to rub it in when Canada Day falls on a Wednesday and the 4th is a Saturday. And I suspect the days around your holidays are about as unproductive as ours, so it all evens out in due course.
I grew up in states along the US/Canada border, so I’ve been aware of Canada Day since I was a kid. Back then though, you called it Dominion Day. When did that change?
Back to the comic – when I was their age, I couldn’t wait for “tastes” of beer from my Dad. And that was pisswater American beer, not good Canadian beer! What’s wrong wit those boys?
I’m not sure when they changed it from Dominion Day to Canada Day, but I’m pretty glad they did. I’m not a big fan of hanging on to our royal and colonial heritage, time for Canada to put on it’s big boy pants!
(And I think the reason the boys don’t like the beer is that they’re drinking from warm, half-empty bottles with cigarette butts floating in there… just wait til it’s a hot day and they have a cold one )
Yeah, cigarette butts would put me off beer too.
“Gonna float in the pool and drink beer all day”
Aw crum, Sandy, I hope you got out of the pool once in a while. Like when you made room for more beer, maybe? Otherwise you’re making the pool filters work overtime.
Hey, that’s why we have a filter, c’mon now!
Actually, we were in there during a lightning storm, trying to figure out if lightning is more likely to hit our metal chimney, the nearby tree, or the metal-sided pool we’re in… we debated so long, the storm passed, so all was well!
Ooh! Ooh! I just thought of a title for your next book, Sandy! Half-drunken Hooliganism! And the pic can be this strip, without the speech bubble! Or with the title in the speech bubble!
Why can’t I have these kinds of ideas when I’m well?
Nice! Now I just have to sell the rest of the copies of the first book!
(And I’d say ‘get well soon’, but not if it shuts off the idea fountain)
bleargh, I have the same ideas, it’s just it takes a bit longer to come up with them… Maybe the illness induced stupor stops my brain shooting down the less than intelligent ones… Which might explain why the seventies and their drug addled musicians made such good music…
And make the second book anyways, if you didn’t sell the remaining copies already, then they’ll take a while to shift…
beer good, no beer bad!
