My second memory was living a summer in London, England. I was not quite 18 on that Canada Day. We celebrated it at our hostel with a huge "Disco" party. The year was 1974. It was an awesome summer.
My man Jack never liked the house number that came with the house. It was boring brass plated and not very visible against the brick of the house. He requested (last year mind you) if I could make a new house number sign. After seeing my Canada Clocks he wanted a Canadian flag with our house number on it. After his 2nd request I decided that if I were to get it made it needs to be done for Canada Day. Last Sunday I started and completed the sign in one day. It's made from wood pallets and painted and made to look worn. Lots of outdoor clear coat to keep it from the elements. I made sure that house number clearly stood out ;)
Happy Canada Day Everyone! ~ Enjoy the long weekend and stay safe.
