Thanks Doug I did a google after my response to Vicky and did see that so edited my response to indicate that she had actually recorded it so no idea why they would during their interview say they hadnt heard it due to it not being recorded... a puzzle. Oh well she did a bang up job of it regardless.

Why would you be scared of friendly Canadians? It is Americans with guns you need to be scared of!

Fixed it....



Remember, law abiding citizens are not the problem.
Criminals are the ones who don't follow the rules.

As long as you don't throw them at my truck.

A snowball hitting the side of a GM Express 2500 sounds like a shotgun. My passenger got the crap scared out of him.

Like Alf and a bunch of others here, I actually live half way between Detroit and Bufflo. That places us south of most of Michigan, the Dakota's. Wiskonsononon and Orogonon Washington (not DC) and why did they put Alaska way up there anyways. Think about it a bit and be truly afraid

Newfies. The first place I ever set foot in "Canada" was Gander. I hadn't even been to the Canadian side of the falls at that time. Interesting that assimilation doesn't happen over nite or even 60+ yrs.

....an here all along I thought Warshington wuz just a southern adjunct to B.C!!! Have many many 'Murican friends who sojour north to visit from Warshington State. One Lady friend from Sedro we foundly refer to as P.P.M. (pistol packing mamma). She has repetedly crossed into Kanadah while absesnt~mindly packing an undeclared 22 in her boots/shoe!!

You'd have nothing to fear from ANY Canadian either in your homeland or North of the 49th (Lotus Land) unless you were unprepared, by that, I mean without a 'church key' (bottle opener), LOL!!!!

....your interperation MAY vary!!!!!!

I heard a crazy rumor that in Newfoundland they couldn't understand time zones, so they just tossed in an extra half hour.

Here in Britain, we tend to use 'glassfibre'.

Whereas I believe it was the superb sense of humour of the folks in Nepal and the Chatham Islands (NZ) that led them to choose time zones that are out from everyone else by a quarter of an hour. Proper individualism.....

Many here on the forum have relatives living on the other side of the longest undefended border.


Does that make you my cousin, EH?
Now that's real fear.
