Default Had a wonderful visit....

....always too short..... not enough time to chat with everyone.....

....and left without connecting with Dennis Walker who had parts for me....

Oh well another trip will surely be coming up...

I understand that Gilles has a whole bunch of almost new 9:00 x 16 tires for sale ......cheap......

....... and Barry spent the whole afternoon at the legion sucking beer and told his wife he blew a fanbelt.....

Thanks to the organizers for a wonderful event.

Boob

Bob,

Jim and I were literally called away as we were pulling into the Lehion for beers.

I will make it up to myself this summer at BBQ4 this summer.

Will Alex Blair be there?

Stew..I shall be there with bells. on..
I was lamenting at Gracies the other night,that daughter #2 was the most inconsiderate child..One CC thrash I was press ganged into moving daughter to a new apartment on the only weekend in Quebec that moving is allowed..July 1..so missed the CC thrash that year..Then missed a BBB when same inconsiderate child had grandson #1..on an August date corresponding to said BBB thrash at the Hammond barn complex...and again a fore mentioned inconsiderate daughter produced grandson Number 2 on another August date close to another BBB at Brother Bobs..
#1 grandson born in Lake Forrest Il..(Just North of Chicago..and #2 grandson born in Carmel ,Indiana..just outside Indianapolis..
Rather inconsiderate that she should have those little darlings so far from Ottawa..If they were born here I could have snuck away for a few hours ,but no...drag me away and tie me up..
Daughter number 2 has been warned ..NO MORE FRIGGIN' Babies..that conflict with our ROTTERS gather ups..
She has complied and so I will be at Bob's this year and look forward to seeing you and Machine Gun Mary..your beautiful bride..

Bob, Brian and I should have been at the Legion sucking back beer instead of on the side of the 401 sucking exhaust fumes. Janet said some real nice guy was at the door telling her he was Bob Carriere. I knew it couldn't have been you. An imposter for sure. I am sorry I missed you guys but the old fan belt just gave out. There are 600,000 km on that truck and I could have sworn I put a new belt on it once before. We managed to limp to the CTC at Leslie and Sheppard to buy a new belt and a set of wrenches to put it on. A new 15mm wrench was $10.00 but the old Gougher found me a whole set on sale for $20.00. Anyway I hope you and Grant got everything you needed and Janet says you can come back anytime but you have to take more stuff with you when you leave.
Cheers,
Barry

Photos dimensions and outline tracings were taken, nothing else. No prisoners or hostages. Now that I've compared photos to the trailer at the Hammond Barn, I realize I should have taken more measurenets and tracings - next time. Since Janet says it and you aren't disagreeing - perhaps we should have "liberated" a few bits and pieces. Bob was particularly smitten by a Dodge or two of similar vintage to himself.
