An evening spent with friends

It turned into a rainy Sunday here in Ottawa, but it was a great day anyhow. I sold the snow rubber and rims that were taking up the back seat of our little car. We don't plan on ever having to use snows again, and I didn't want to have them in the car while driving back to Nova Scotia later this week.

Late Sunday afternoon, I went to one of my best friends houses for a get together with a group of guys that I've known since I was 16 years old. We all worked in the late 70's at a family summer camp called Red Pine Camp.

We see each other occasionally on a one to one basis, but it's pretty rare that we're all together at the same time. We were actually only missing one in the group, a fellow who now lives in Calgary, Alberta. We've been friends for 33 years now, and whenever we get together it's as if no time has passed at all. We shared a lot of laughs and had a great evening! Sure missed not having Ruth there, but a couple of the other guys showed up without their wives, so it wasn't like I was the only one.


  1. always fun to get together with old friends, its nice to keep in touch.

  2. Looks like a fun time, and I bet you all reverted back to your boyish antics and silliness. (probably bathroom humor too?)

  6. George and Suzie...Always nice to get together with friends.

    Karen and Steve...No doubt they did.


    Sam and Donna...Seeing it was a Sunday night and they had to drive, I'm sure a 30 pack would do them. If that was a cooler Sam, that would have been a big one.

    Kenny and Angela...You got that right!
