    I miss the good ole days. Telling someone that you plan to uptown and it takes all moring before you get to it. (I lived in a small town). Traffic was more than two cars in a row..

    I had to stop for a moose in New Brunswick last year, and for a family of Canada geese a couple years ago. Funny thing was that cars in both directions stopped, no honking or impatience and then we all carried on as if it happened every day.

    You Know You're Canadian When:

    You design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

    You have more miles on your snow blower than your car.

    Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled in with snow.

    The local paper covers national and international headlines on two pages, but requires six pages for hockey.

    The municipality buys a Zamboni before a bus.

    You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars, and drink pop, not soda.

    You use a red pen on your non-Canadian textbooks and fill in the missing u's from labor, honor, and color.

    You know how to say free, prize and no sugar added in French thanks to your extensive education in bilingual cereal packaging.

    You know what a toque is.

    You've plugged a car in overnight.

    You've defended your property from trespassers with a lacrosse stick because you don't own a gun.

    Where's Wendy?? I have a good one for Ontario...

    You know you live in Canada when.....

    It snows heavily on the last day of March, and you're not at all surprised!

    Passed 5 or 6 cars in the ditch on the way to work today. One nasty fender bender involved 4 or 5 cars AND a bus!
