Happy Birthday Canada


Happy Birthday Canada
140 years today.
We want all the world to know,
we love Canada in every way.
We treat all people with dignity and respect,
Something we will never regret.
Did you know
we are the inventors of the Butter Tart.
We invite you all to come take part.

All together now! ! !

    Mel, if I could I would gladly come across for a Butter Tart. As I can't, all I'll say is Happy Birthday Canada, my second home. Top marks and thanks for sharing it my friend.
