Hmm. I see the Canadians beat the Americans in the women’s ice hockey final, and then today beat the USA men’s team as well. I guess that gives them bragging rights. So! No reason to be rude to me the next time I stop over in one of their airports. (The customs officials seem to be rude to me almost every time I arrive there and show my US passport).
P.S. I sat next to a young woman last night on the way in from Denver. She had a cake that she was bringing to Seattle to celebrate her grandmother’s 96th birthday with her. Wow! That’s good going, I said. And she made a trip to Ghana and South Africa last year. They went to the Kruger National Park and saw all big the ‘big five’ game animals : lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros.
