Don't worry folks, we'll let you keep your flag - you're obviously fond of it if the presence of one on every single house is anything to go by. We'll just stick a leaf on it or something! ;)
(I am just kidding - please don't take this as a serious plot to invade or anything! Though if you're not using those towns, we'll happy trade you them for some poutine and a Zamboni or something.)
Anyways, as you can probably guess, I had a good time in Haines this past weekend. We went down for the Haines Beerfest (my first time going!) and had a blast. The weather was extremely warm and I killed my ankles and feet by walking all over town in flip flops, but the beer was good and I made lots of friends by sharing my ginormous bag of popcorn with everyone.
BTW, three separate people stated "you must be Canadian" after I offered them popcorn. Weird.
There was also some buttonhole templates, but sadly no buttonholer. I'm going to see if I can't find one for this machine - though my Kenmore does buttonholes just fine. Maybe I'll track down some other feet for it too.
