Thanks. I see.




I am now relaxed again. That level of animation is uncharacteristic of me. I figure it must have been the diet coke typing.




What a great "where are they now" list. I am most impressed with the obvious brotherhood that spawned this. It would be great if even half of them frequented a common website forum such as this.

T-rex........Here I am .....loving beautiful Southern Alberta! I never did thank DW, JPB, and BM for there 'almightly' plan of closing bases. It was the best thing that ever happened career wise, I would not be here now where I am. I wonder if those Beancounters will ever figure out why they loose so much work?!? :blink: (Duh!) The only work they seem to get are contracts no one else really cares about or logistically are impossible! The unfortunante thing is they have alot of good personal still there, under the 'Red Bird Hypnosis.' Hey, all you still there, THERE IS LIFE AFTER CHL.....Get out now and join the party! :up: .....Yes, flying can be fun and enjoyable. :rolleyes:

My biggest regret was not to leave 10 years sooner :up:


Should have followed Pat, Dave and Wayne on their first days at the Empire.


Of course, doing that, I would have missed those great Uniforms, "...Yes Maam, Toasters are in Aisle 6, to your left and down that Aisle..just past the Tupperware..."

CAP, the uniform that I was referring to was the "Canadian Tire" special or was that "Canada Post" special gratiously SOLD to me by the fine henchmen at the Codfish **** Corporation.....with the kind Blessing ... WEAR IT, OR BE FIRED ! ! !

And NO , I never kept one, the polyester sheite never even made a good rag for the workshop .
