Mercer Island... That's not far from where I'm at. I should poke my head in there (with or without the mask).

Tom,

I don't know, but I recall there was something a bit odd about Jeff's attire... I think the raincoat and goalie mask wouldn't have attracted any attention, if it weren't for the fishnet stockings and stiletto heels. No matter what, I might not be able to put my finger on it, but there was just something, that seemed a bit odd at the time.


Best Regards,
TerryO

no, you must be thinking of Kevin - Jeff's more of an espadrilles fan (no, not a Latin American hockey team)

all kidding aside, it's far less fun than it sounds to be detained (it probably only seemed like hours) and intimidated by the US Border Protection crew, under the watchful eye of Dick Cheney's portrait (I swear those eyes followed me into and in the washroom)

I does remind one of Kevin, that's for sure.

Chris,

The Canadian Customs people can be somewhat tedious as well. I certainly remember that after I told them that what they were looking at was a soldering gun, they became very concerned and wanted to know if it was loaded. I all fairness, they did help to load everything back into my car afterwards. It was a 2.5 hour cultural exchange.

Speaking of portraits, why do they have Farley Mowat's prodominately displayed?


Best Regards,
Terry

I thought it was placed there perhaps as a reminder of Mr. Mowat's daring exploits between the mainland and Milqueon & St. Pierre.


Best Regards,
Terry

They could at least have supplied you with some Tim Hortons "Timbits"!
They're fast becoming one of our chief exports!
