Congratulations to Canada for doing so well in the Olympics. I was unable to watch the big “Gold” hockey game which I heard was one of the best hockey games ever, especially with Canada winning. I can only imagine the yelling and hollering going on with my dad with the game being so close.
I am so proud of what Canada accomplished in these winter games, and loved seeing Michael J. Fox in the closing ceremony. I went to Mark’s office this morning to be able to watch it and was reminded once again of all the terrific talent in Canada. I agree with his comment “that even after living in the United States for the last 30 years, my heart belongs to Canada”. That warmed my heart and brought tears to my eyes as that is how I feel.
One of Mark’s colleagues just returned from a home visit to Canada and brought him back an Olympic loonie.
Years ago Canada replaced the dollar bill with a loonie coin and and a two dollar bill with a toonie (1996). So the smallest denomination of a bill is the $5.00 bill. So in Canada you always have a pocket full of coins.
Thanks Alan, for the loonie as I think sleeping with it under my pillow last night helped the Canadians win the Gold in hockey. Or at least in my dreams it did.
