There are some advantages to still being under a monarch… still being part of a ‘sovereignty.’ Officially – we Canadians are celebrating Victoria Day this coming weekend. It’s a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the last Monday before or on May 24 (or as we call it – the May 2-4 weekend) in honour of both the late Queen Victoria and our current reigning Canadian sovereign’s birthday, Queen Elizabeth II. For those of you who aren’t bilingual, the title says “Happy Queen’s Birthday”… in French.
So in honour of our sovereignty… a few of us are getting the hell outta dodge. Hopin’ on a plane to dryer and hotter pastures, San Antonio, Texas (baby!). It’s not uncommon that we get colder weather, even snow, this weekend in these here parts. So – we’re making it a 4-day weekend, going to where the sun shines brightly and hotly
Hopefully I’ll be back with some stories and pictures… back in one piece. I don’t really want too but apparently I have no choice (come back that is…). When I get back – I have some difficult things to face and manage. I might as well get in my fun on now… before it gets ugly.
So… have a safe couple of days everyone… and Happy May 2-4 to those of you who do get to reap the benefits of living under a monarchy. Drink lotsa beer and be merry!
