And it's Canada Day; happy interrupted* long weekend, fellow Canadians!
*(Canada Day, July 1st is a Statutory Holiday. All public institutions close; those who have to work get double pay; most of us are heading out of town or to the nearest beach. When it falls on or next to a weekend, we get 3 days off, rather than 2. And when the Stat. Holiday falls on a Tuesday or Thursday, as it does this year, we often make it a 4 day weekend, long enough to go for a decent road trip. But some employers stick to the letter of the law, and make Monday a normal working day, which gives people 2 days off, one day on, one day off. Much grumbling.**)
** Since we're retired, we don't care; we work every day, or not, as it pleases us. Our plans for the holiday this year include gardening (mostly Laurie), chasing spiders with the camera (me), and maybe de-cluttering the storeroom (me) and old documents (Laurie). We'll head for the beach another day, when it's not so crowded.
