I know, I know, Brits say it too. It's just more fun to split hairs with the cultural differences between Americans and Canadians. Actually there is quite a difference but it is subtle.
When I had a Canadian student say Zed, I knew that was how he said Z. I said nothing. I shared it with the teacher next door. I taught for year in Canada. This is when I became a big Canadophile. Canadians are wonderful people. They are very polite and thoughtful, sort of like people from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Maine. I would add more states; but, these I am familiar with. Their calmness is what I like.
Anyway, I got that Z letter done folks. I hope you have had as much fun as me during the challenge. I've made a list of folks to go back to and read all their posts. Hopefully this past week I have made a gander at all the blogs I have not made it to. I tried to comment on many. Some of you guys did not have a way to comment or follow. But most did.
Anyway, enjoy the following pictures I took in near my home. See you next year. Cheers.
