A Song to Sing...

I did it again!  Last night just before the end of the fire works in both Port Hope and Cobourg I hiked to the top of the nearby sand hill and sang O'Canada, as I almost always have for many years on Canada Day following the Great thundering finale to the fireworks display in both towns.

I can't imagine how lovely it would sound to have at least a small chorus of people join me!   To this point the most eager co-participant I've had join me is one of our cats!
