    Or shoot rabbits staked to the ground?

    For myself, I am pissed-off that, once again, I was left of the list of honourees for the Order Of Canada this year. :mad:

    An oversight that I'm sure will be corrected forthwith.

    Just give me the Queen's email address, and it will all be handled.:D

    Don't trouble yourself for me.

    I believe she follows the Governor-General's recommendations, and it's based on life-long dedication.

    Like regular folk, like me, don't have to make a living before 'service'.

    So, what is the symbol of the Order of Canada? A Tim Horton's donut? A bottle of maple syrup? Maybe a bottle of Crown Royal? :D

    No trouble at all, my friend.:)

    The Governor-General and I are, how shall I say this...close.

    Your modesty is commendable, but anyone who can give me the kind of grief you can deserves serious recognition.:D ;)
