Saturday Centus ~ The Flag

well, Jenny has finally completely and utterly stumped me with this weeks prompt, which is ... "Oh, say can you see" ... I have been wracking my brains all day trying to think of something to write without going the patriotic route ... hello, i'm a Canadian ... In vain I have struggled ... okay Mr. Darcy actually said that ... but that is how i feel  ... utterly frustrated and falling in love with another country ...

So there is nothing this week, except my admission that i do love the grand old USA, but not as much as i love CANADA ... well, okay the shopping is much better stateside ... but hey, we have hockey  err, Canadian style football ... yeah just try and beat us at Canadian Football!  And we have a whole lot of land ...more than America ... however you wouldn't want to live in most of it, its up north and it's cold up there.

Now, if you want to read real Centus entries that are only 100 words ... (my little rant is almost double the limit)  just click on Jenny's button below.  And no matter how you celebrate, do take time to celebrate ... we North Americans live in two of the best countries in the world.

Peace, love & paper y'all!

Oh, you are so sweet! I happen to love Canada! So we are even on that score! I guess you have Canada Day and we have the 4th.

Jo,

You SHOULD love your country! My trips up your way have taught me how beautiful it is and how awesome the people are - like you.

Namaste..........cj

New Hampshire is bipolar. At NASCAR races the Canadian National Anthem is sung before the US National Anthem. Some day I'm certain we'll secede to Canada. We're just waiting for a favorable exchange rate and for Canada to get rid of the damn PST & VAT.

Hello from Hockeytown! ;-)

I thought 'oh say can you see' would be vague enough for everyone. My husband kept writing prompts specific to the fourth of July!

Thanks for your valiant efforts, anyway!

Let me know when it's a big Canadian holiday replete with a song or anthem and I'll stump the rest of us then!

Thanks for linking.

Canada Oh Canada .... my visits are always in Feb., a bit of a shock for this southern girl. All the same, enjoy your word crafting....

Dear Jo,
Thank you for visiting and commenting on my SC-post. These kinds of prompts are not so easy to do if you live, as we do, outside of the United States.

But I think it is important to try to participate in any way you can if only to remind Americans that there is another world out there, and in your case, it's just across the border.

Canada is a beautiful place. And there are lots of wonderful people there too.

Best wishes & hugs,
Anna

But in vain I have struggled too! That was and still is a great line! Love you inspiration motivation! Just thinking of Mr. Darcy should let words flow like magic! Hope your 4th was great!
