I had taken off Canada Day every year since I moved to London. In 2004 London put on the 1st annual Canada Day Event in Trafalgar Square. 2010 was bigger and better than any other year and the day was fantastic. Always a full day of activities that kicks off at 10:30am with the singing of the National Anthem to open the day. I missed that part, arriving about 45min later, didn’t miss all that much. Checked out all the kiosks’ around Trafalgar Square; there is where I will buy my Buffalo/Bison Burger later, OK found the Tim Horton stand, and bought my coffee to sit and savour. Later on in the day I went to get my second Tim Horton ® Coffee and donut before the main part of the concert began. I made my way to a long line of people waiting to purchase some Tim Horton’s® Coffee. Hey if you are Canadian and live away from home the one thing you will seek once home in Canada is Timmy’s! People were also walking around with boxes of Tim Horton ® donuts like it was like a box of gold. I arrived at the end of the line and could barely see the front of it. OK I’m here for a while I see. I asked a woman who seemed to presently be holding up the end, she said yes. We spoke for about 20+ min while we made our way up to the Tim Stand. She was a lovely lady visiting from Vancouver and happened to be in London for Canada Day. Once we made our way to the counter she went ahead and purchased my coffee and donut for me stating she was thankful for the conversation we had...BLESS HER! I don’t even know her name...”Lady who ever you are that was the best cup of coffee I had”. The joy of that coffee and donut didn’t stop there. I walked towards the stage, and stood to sip my coffee and to bite into a “Boston Cream” donut. Next a man came up to me and asked to take a picture as he is a Canadian who lives in London and so misses Tim Horton’s®. I asked why he didn’t just go over to get a cup...he said the line (“queue” in the UK) was too long. He wanted to take a picture of me with my Tim’s cup and the Boston Cream that he said was his favourite. He took his picture and said for me to enjoy my donut, so I said to him “Well take a bite then”, with shocked face he says to me, “You’ll let me take a bit of your donut” “Sure why not” he took a bite and pure pleasure was written all over his face. I think us Canadians are all the same...we are willing to give half our donut...just because! So proud to be Canadian today! And thanks to Tim Horton’s® who made the joy go round.
