Thank you!  ;D

I actually had a modern printed version of the flag seen below (... the first version of the Canadian Red Ensign, as adopted after creation of the Dominion of Canada in 1867 ...) along with me at Muster, but got busy having too much fun, and thus forgot to dig it out of the truck and fly it!

Thanks for the greeting, and reciprocation for tomorrow for your Independence Day.

I'm Glad you made it back Grant, and I still prefer DOMINION DAY as it was when your flag was in use.

Sir Charles....thanks!  Got a lot of fireworks that need lighting so I will be busy! ;D  I would shoot some guns off but my neighbor might get a little testy. 

RsJ...nice flag.  My mom's side of the family was in Canada when that was adopted.
