I am a Canadian by choice not chance.
I am a country boy not a city slicker.
I have a dog not a doorbell, a collie not a
rottweiler, a friend not a pet.
I walk in the woods not the streets.
I have a truck not
a car, a barn not a garage, a septic system not a sewer.
I live on a gravel road not
a paved road.
I have dial up not
high speed, a mailbox not a letterbox, a yard light not a street light.
I shoot photo’s not trophies.
I am old not young,
married not single, poor not rich, over taxed not over sexed.
I heat with wood not gas
I respect my
neighbors not numb-sculls, police not politicians , hikers
I am a RURAL Canadian.
