    Ah yes! ... the 'other' Canada ... I don't speak that language ... I have enough trouble with English ... LOL [​IMG]

    Aha! ... perhaps that is where 'aboot' comes from, never heard anyone in Ontario use that.
    If I hang around here long enough, I'll know something about where I live .. [​IMG]

    Buenos dias!

    Actually, Squeezy, I have been fortunate to enjoy the best of both Canadas.

    I was pretty much raised by my maternal grandmother who was Canadian from the Stanstead, Que area. I live aboot a 30 minute drive from there.

    I also have many direct Montgomery relatives who emigrated to the area around Toronto at about the same time my grandparents Montgomery came to Maine. Most of the Canadian Montgomery relatives live in Agincourt and the surrounding area.

    Good to see you had a chuckle on the Canadian wood! My bacon goes into the smoker in an hour!

    Cheers!
