Thanksgiving weekend, somewhere in Canada

The girls and I drove to the dump, with CBC on the radio.  Brent Bambury was interviewing Canadian Astronaut Julie Payette.  When it was our turn, and I had to turn the car off, we were all sad at the thought of having to miss the last few minutes.  But when I turned our radio off, the sound didn't stop.  I stepped out of the car and was instantly met with the same interview emanating from the open windows of the car beside me.  We listened together in a simple moment of Canadian connectedness.  This weekend, among so many other things, I'm thankful for where I live.
