That Fast Fox

Do you remember when you learned the letters of the alphabet in one sentence?  It is called a pangram:  

"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

I was looking for Canadian expressions and the MacLean's article on Canadianisms begins with a sentence full of Canadian expressions.  It made me think of that fox.

"Pass me a pop or I'll turf you out of here, hoser."

Here is their list of 11 Canadianisms that American's would be stumped by:
1. Double double
2. Pogey
3. All-dressed
4. Chesterfield
5. Pop (soda)
7. Dinged (financially hit)
Turfed out
9. Give’r
10. Parkade
11. Hoser

Our pictures today show some breezy views of the scenery on the way back from Maine.
