Blessed Canada..

Come On Spring…

This came in my Mail today:

BLESSED CANADA

On the sixth day God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said: ‘Today I am going to create a land called Canada. It will be a land of outstanding natural beauty. It shall have tall majestic mountains full of mountain goats, and eagles, beautiful sparkling lakes bountiful with bass and trout, forests full of elk and moose, high cliffs over-looking sandy beaches with an abundance of sea life, and rivers stocked with salmon.’

God continued, ‘I shall make the land rich in resources so as to make the inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Canadians, and they shall be known as the most friendly people on the earth.’

‘But Lord,’ asked Gabriel, ‘don’t you think you are being too generous to these Canadians?’

‘Not really,’ replied God ‘just wait and see the winters I am going to give them.’




Should I take Board Space and post this ????

YES…

And then God felt sorry about the weather he’d given those poor Canadians, feeling a lot like he felt after the deluge, I mean, really, really sorry, and so God decided to make another rainbow as a promise never to do it again.
So he took a piece of wood, and started to bend it into an arc, but before he finished more than one small end of it a bunch of hooligans at the Victoria Skating Rink (although some dispute this as say it was the Long Pond) grabbed the unfinished “stick” and started using it to “shoot” around a flat circular piece of wood.
God said, “OK! that’s enough” but the hooligans thought he said “hockey!” and thus God gave hockey as a gift to Canadians and to all winter-sport loving people around the globe, as compensation for those really lousy winters (which the ever-resourceful Canadians then decided to ship south to those annoying Yanks anyway).

Hey:
