My sister, a 40+ year full-time resident of Florida, would call me up and laugh to the point I couldn't understand what she was saying as she described the latest episode of Red Green. I think it either made her homesick or it gave her a taste of home, hence the call.

I've heard it was actually more popular south of the 45th parallel than here at home - but we (those who could laugh at themselves) all watched it as well. There's a lot of self-identification to be revealed watching this guy and his side-kicks.

His thoughts and one-liner sayings were classics:
Keep yer stick on the ice.
If the women don't find ya handsome, they'd better find ya handy.
And remember, this fix is only temporary, unless it works.
A screw is just a nail with a thread.
Don't you just hate it when you come home from a hard day at the track and your wife hasn't shoveled the driveway?
If repetition wasn't a good thing, why would people get married?
It doesn't take long for men to make a decision. It's making a decision look smart that takes the time.

Looking back over the years I notice how the phrase "getting lucky" has changed its meaning. When I was a little boy, "getting lucky" meant retrieving my dog from the neighbor's patio party. After puberty, it took on a whole new implication. The teen years are in fact the golden era of getting lucky. Next "getting lucky" referred to my first successful job application, then being approved for a mortgage, then surviving that tax audit and then avoiding the axe during the company downsizing. Nowadays "getting lucky" means the medical test came back negative.

Once in a while you read about someone with an exotic pet like a ferret or a rhino or something, but to a woman an exotic pet might be a strange kind of cat. You know orange eyes, no fur, ears like Mr. Spock, but the kind of exotic pets that appeal to men, well basically, tigers, falcons, cobras these animals are living weapons. You don't go play fetch in the park with these babies. You don't dress them up in little outfits. You don't let them sit in your lap while you watch Rescue 911, unless, you want to be on it.

There's a general feeling among the guys that anybody who has a lot of knowledge, education, or accurate information is probably boring. We prefer to go on gut feeling. Not that we have a lot of guts, but most of us have a lot of gut. Now don't confuse this with woman's intuition, 'cause with men it's different. Women's intuition is usually right, but I'll tell ya, men get a lot more fun out of a good hunch then they do out of a solid fact.

There's only two things that excite a man, expensive toys and real expensive toys.

Thinking is usually a good thing. It can save you from physical harm and psychological damage. But thinking at the wrong time can also create a lot of problems. Here's a short list of times when it's better not to think: When you're being rolled in for surgery. When you're being disciplined by a loved one. When you're watching an approaching hockey puck. When you're undergoing a tax audit. When you're at a wrestling match. When you're getting directions. When you're assembling an explosive device. When you're spouse is telling you what to wear. When you're asked for an opinion. When you're at a board meeting. When you're feeling smart.

To me, cheating just means you care about winning.

VEGETARIAN: That's an old Indian word meaning "I don't hunt so good."

You want to make it two inches -- or, if you're working in centimeters, make sure it's enough centimeters for two inches.

Yup, and ask any Canadian if we know Dale....Of course, he's my cousin, brother, father, boyfriend, friend, enemy, neighbour - there's always a connection between Canadians. It's easy when there's only a few of us to begin with.
Go Dale!

Great shot, Alf! Please continue to drop them on us anytime you can.

Taco Armstrong, I remember vividly the first time I saw the Canuck at Lions. Dale had just moved to the states and was a mechanic at White Chevrolet just down the street from Lions. The Canuck had a roof then and a blown sbc on nitro. The body was all steel at that time so the car had an incredible "ringing" sound. Fiberglass parts and a BBC soon followed.
He ran a Torqueflite as most did in those days and the transmission exploded one night and blew off the roof. Instant roadster.
I did not know Dale but he was easy to talk to. A genius and a gentleman.

Well with all this "wisdom" being shared here is one of my Mother's rule of life. She not only believed it but lived it, especially when she was packing for a trip. "It is better to have it and not need it that to need it and not have it". I credit her with me having all the things I don't need, but you Never know.

Your Mom must have been a biker, RRM. As bikers, we always said the same thing about layers of clothing before Heated Jacket Liners became the norm up here on the frozen tundra.
