    Our local airport had a wings and wheels weekend. Flying things and old cars. It was advertised that this gentleman was going to be there and I found him by the size of the line at his tent. I got to shake his hand twice, thank him for everything and tell him a story that he laughed at. If I can look as good as he does at his age I won't mind living that long. Col. Brown is one of only two left.

    My favorite car was a 1969 Blue Ford Galaxy convertible with white leather interior. We can only dream about driving something like that now. IMG_1954.jpg

    Although I had this UV water filtration system installed two weeks ago, the invoice just arrived and I paid for it today. I just got tired of dragging jugs of water into a boat to get it to my island. I’ve tried all sorts of portable filtration systems, but none of them seem to work adequately. I finally bit the bullet and spent $2000 in order to simplify my life. No more beaver fever for me because of lake water!

    I live in Toronto, Canada, but the filtration system was installed at a place I have north east of Toronto, in an area called the Kawarthas. More specifically, I’m on Jack’s Lake if any of you are familiar with southern Ontario.

    Welcome to the forum! We have a plant in Collingwood so I’m up in that area every few months. Gorgeous part of Ontario.

    Little 14 by 20 cm paperback in the BFI - British Film Institute series: The Right Stuff by Tom Charity ( 96 pages printed in 1997 )
    A great read on my favorite subject, placing the 1979 Tom Wolfe book and the 1983 film in historical perspective... Fits nice next to a 1960s F-104
    ;)

    Bought this Dr. Seuss piece for my wife's birthday, next week. She loves sea turtles and Dr. Seuss. I wish she would buy me a watch occasionally.

    Yesterday I bought a beautiful custom-built Brownell 27 bass boat from the original owners.
    You know the old joke: the two happiest days for a boat owner - the day he buys it and the day he sells it.
    Right now I couldn’t be any happier!


    When I was a little kid, my grandfather owned an island on Eagle Lake in Tichborne, Ontario. Such great childhood memories! He died when I was 11, and my grandmother sold the island, and everything on it - furnished cottage, boathouse, boats, tools, fishing gear, etc. - for $14,000.

    Bought a new wedding band a few weeks ago. 6mm plain white gold band with an engraved note. Love the shine and how light it is compared with my old tungsten ring
