In two days Canada turns 150 years of age.
"I remember the one-hundredth birthday celebrations", I explained to the young person who asked me what I was doing for Canada Day: "They were big. I was living in (West) Germany at the time....Bobby Gimby made an appearance."
Seconds later I asked myself, and got no answer of real substance: "How do I remember that?"
I must be over fifty years old.
