Our Canadian Brothers Sisters

Just got back this afternoon from a vacation in St. Johns, New Brunswick and Halifax, Nova Scotia. What a nice group of folks these people are! They took care of our passengers (76,000 of them) that were stranded due to the U.S. closing our airports. This past week I saw several hundred U.S. flags in Canadian homes, businesses, and automobile windows. I saw many billboard signs stating basically the same thing.."Our Southern Family Has Problems...We Stand Beside Them!" What a nice and unexpected sight this was! I went in one shop where a 6'9" Canadian store owner put his arm around my shoulder and said to me,"Just want to say thanks for what you Yanks have done in the past for us and to let you know that we will go the distance for you guys." He pulled out his handkerchief and was wiping his eyes. His wife came over and put her arm around me also. Met many others who said the same thing. What a nice feeling this imparts to the visitor to Canada. My wife had made reservations in May for this trip otherwise we would not have gone. Am now glad we did due to the very gracious friends that we met in our Northern neighbors, the Canadians... what nice folks you are!! Thanks and God Bless. Super proud to have a brother and sister like you guys!! Your Friend, Doc

Canadians are the best neighbors a country could ask for. Many people forget that they to are Americans. We all encompass this region. Canadians have always backed us, and visa versa. Any attack on Canada is an attack on the U.S. I frequently visit Canada, I have always seen the Stars &Stripes flown with the Red Maple. And here in Michigan, many people fly the Maple with the Stars & Stripes. They definately took on a big risk taking in those planes.

Right you are brother Doc. I have never been anywhere in Canada that wasn't nice and that includes the people. Only province I haven't been to is Newf/Labrador and I'll get there someday. I've always gotten the best of treatment from great people in a beautiful country. Even in the city (which I tend to avoid).

The best is yet to come for ya Les!

Newfies are the nicest folks from the north that I have met yet. If I had to live in a different country, it would be inland New Foundland.
But ya have to know how to pronounce it.
it is Newfun Land...not Newfoundland...Newfunlund, or any of the other variations.
Got that lecture in a provincial park from a drinked up fisherman one night...

:-)
