I was musing that very idea just last week until my D/W, over the rim of her coffee cup, quietly queried: - "but don't they need someplace reasonably flat to put it"?

I love her dearly.

I've seen photos of it, and it's (to me, anyway) not terribly attractive, but it's the thought that counts.

Canada's gift to the US on its 200th birthday in 1976 was the book Between Friends/Entre Amis, with plenty of photos illustrating our peacefully-shared border.

I was a little disappointed that the United States did not give us anything on our 150th birthday. Of course, it is not obliged to, but in the tradition of giving gifts between our two countries on important anniversaries, it seemed a little odd.

Oh well. I had a lot of fun in 2017 with the free national park pass that the Canadian government gave to every citizen. I got to a few parks that year.
I found this on the Amazon US site and ordered a used version. It must have been very special at the time. Can't wait to browse through the photos. I like the title - Between Friends/Entre Amis. A simpler time, for sure. Thanks for that link. I'm learning french through an online home course, so I actually knew what Entre Amis meant! I speak some German, but I don't think I will ever master french, but who knows?

And don't worry - with a friendlier administration - I bet the gifts resume.. between friends, yes?

Rest in peace on your laurels, Alex, you were a tremendous influence in increasing the knowledge of so many people. I will miss you.

Sorry to hear about your sister. We are at that stage of life.
My condolences to you both on your loss. Hang in there.
