Happy Canada Day!!!


From me, Sunshine & Refnaf

Tomorrow (July 1st) is actually Canada Day, but Canadians being the extra-long-weekend-loving bunch that we are, celebrations are already well under way!

The flag in the picture above has a six-year-old history. It’s owned by the lovely Ms. Sunshine, who brought the flag to the AI7 Idol Tour show in Toronto hoping to get it signed by Mr. David Archuleta. ‘Twas not to be.

But what was awesome about that first “Flag Day” was that I met these two ladies for the first time in that crazy pre-show lineup, and we are still friends today. Thank you, David!

A bunch of other Idols signed the flag in Toronto, and David eventually did sign it at the Manchester, NH, pre-show lineup (although he balked at first because it’s a flag and all, until we assured him it was perfectly okay… so so David, lol).

Anywayyyyys… I christen you all honourary Canadians for Canada Day, so make sure to banish all snowy thoughts from your brains (like we do at this time of year) and listen to Heaven once or twice while eating poutine!

Bonne Fete a tous!!! (sorry, this computer doesn’t have the right accents on it)

David’s Canadian content, wooot!

    I was there in NH and filmed some of the VIP. I recall you guys crowding around him (blocking my view /rude πŸ˜‰ ) Now I know the rest of the story. You guys were so cute having him hold the Snowangelz sign. It was that day wasn'[t it? I think I sent you a clip of it.
    I imagine he gave you a look when asked to write on the flag. Here in the USA that would be a BIG NO NO.
    Happy Canada Day!

      {{{Abs}}} that was such a special VIP in so many ways! (esp. D. singing “O Canada, O Ca-na-da” *sigh* ) But the flag “incident” was actually before the Idol tour show in Manchester (can’t believe I’ve been to that town so many times because of David, lol).
