Had A Nice Canada Day

Despite foggy conditions in the morning, the miracle happened: Just before the Annual Canada Day Parade the sun broke out and it turned really hot – and humid.

I took our convertible and registered for the parade. When it was time to get rolling the darn thing didn’t start and before I knew it my battery was running too low. (the battery is really old) Quickly somebody came running with a jumper cable (normally I always carry one in this car) and then somebody pulled up with his car to give power. When the hood was open there wasn’t any battery visible in this thing. Since when did auto manufacturers hide the battery from view? That is plain stupid. Another car pulled up and there was no battery either, but this one had a jump start connect mounted, and it worked. So I was quick to run after the parade, which of course had left already. Had to bypass the last ambulance before I fell in with the rhythm of the parade.

The floats in front of me threw candy out like I’ve never seen before. Kids were running around everywhere gathering all the goodies. From time to time started the ambulance behind me started started the sirens, leaving deaf for the next 5 minutes. I tried as best I could to blow my own horn, but I don’t think it had any effect. :-))

At 4pm we had 12 people wanting to go on a boat ride so they all gathered at the harbour and went out on the bay for 3 hours.
