All Camo, all the time...

We headed out to the Calgary Stampede for the day and found M's most favourite place to be... on the army vehicles. Which he calls "the army vehicles". His most favourite one was the tank, but that line up was a little too long for one certain pregnant mom having random Braxton Hicks contractions. And besides, Major Man assured me that it was a 1980's German Tank so it was crap. Good to know our Canadian troops are driving crap. We don't have the Gajillions that the Americans do... personally I've heard from Canadian soldiers that this makes them better soldiers because they don't rely on the technology.



Anyways... my son loves him some army stuff. He also liked the CF-18 jet they had there, but was unable to sit in it, so it was deemed not as cool.

I sent some photos to a friend of mine, a New Hampshire democrat. I sent these photos as well as one of my belly. I didn't notice but I was wearing my favourite camo top from Garage. He asked if it was common for us Canadians to be wearing so much camoflage.


There was a funny little contest going on between the Air Force guys and the Army guys... they were handing out these little rubber bracelets with their logo on them, making sure that if they saw a kid with the 'other guy's' bracelet then they'd load him up with theirs... not that M minded, he's all about getting stuff ... as you can see he's got a poppy tattoo on his arm.

Do Americans not know what the Poppy is about? I didn't ever consider the poppy a solely Canadian institution. I suppose it is... Major Man knows what it's about now, but The Other American formerly known as The Rude American seemed confused.

The democrat thinks I may be brainwashing my child. I countered that if he had kids they'd be Hillary-lovers so what's the dif? He had to agree.

Love it. When someone is imparting to a child values SOME PEOPLE agree with, it's TEACHING. But if they are values SOME PEOPLE disagree with? Brainwashing.
Sheesh.
Brainwash away, dear.
