tumblr sunday: our neighbor to the north

Bonjour, Canada!/ Hi, Canada!   It would take a stronger blogger than I am to resist this oddly wonderful combination map and word search puzzle from Marvel Fun and Games #12 (1980).  Good luck to those who want to print it out and give it a try.tumblr_ncpxd1Su9k1shdts2o1_500

I did make a good faith attempt to find a Canadian history connection to hang this on, and in that attempt I found a  great internet resource: Today in Canadian History.  It was hard to choose from the many exciting events associated with November 16th, but on this day in 1970, Anne Murray received a gold record for her hit single “Snowbird”, becoming the first Canadian recording artist to earn that honor.  And the superheroine  Snowbird was one of the  original members of Alpha Flight!
