Thread Name: BS: Happy Holidays, Colonials!!
Subject: RE: BS: Happy Holidays, Colonials!!
This is the 2nd year in a row that I've missed the Independence Day celebrations--which reminds me of a corny joke: Do the British have July 4th? So ok--I haven't missed July 4th. My British(and Welsh)husband often refers to me as a 'colonial wench' and often someone calls me a 'Yank'--which makes me laugh because I'm from Texas, and occasionally someone will ask me if I'm Canadian--and I smile and say 'No, but I would love to visit Canada one of these days.' No offense taken at any of these--because they were never offered with resentment. I do love living in the UK--but I can honestly say 'Thank goodness we broke away!' If anyone in the USA thinks our taxes are out of control--come live in Britain for a while. You will--like I have--learn to appreciate what you took for granted. Just had to put my 2 cents/pence in! Hope everyone enjoyed their day!
