One of the things I liked about Canada.

While doing a ISCA car show at Calgary, I walked across the parking lot at the fair grounds and went in the casino there.
Within 30 min. I had won a $1,000.00 in quarters.
That plus the $1,200.00 I won at the show was great.

All right, you asked for it and here it is.

Across this great span of land in this great country of ours lie the tallest hills between Labrador and the Rockies. Yes folks, just south of the Trans Canada Highway at Maple Creek in the Cypress Hills Provincial Park lie these expansive hills, taller that the eye can see in a blizzard and more impressive than the Husky House at Hedingly Manitoba, these hills will bring tears to your eyes on a cold windy winter day. Viewing from the crest of these expansive hills you can see for miles and miles of some of the flattest land in Canada. Gas is pretty cheap there too.

Running out of ideas
getting no help from family
not much going on here
I remain

Oh Chickie, not to be petty or competitive or anything but just to let you know, Rugby North Dakota lays claim to being the Geographical Center of North America. They even got a big monument with a restaurant and everything. Had a grilled cheeze there. Good cole slaw.

your pal
Steve

They bring tears to your eyes because the wild chill is -40C.

Well now.....let me see.....Baker's Narrows Lodge....north of the 54th parallel, 380 miles NW of Winnipeg, Manitoba's largest drive-in/Fly-in fishing lodge. Situated on scenic Lake Athapapuskow, the only fresh water lake to boast THREE, yes that's THREE world records for two different species of fish. Ice fishing is also popular at Baker's Narrows...

Chickie.
Rugby may lay claim to the fact, but that doesn't make it so. It's been common knowledge for many years, and is even taught in high school Geography class. (and I don't think you're being petty, you're just pointing something out).

Well I see the double ontondra's are running thick this morning.

I went to the Maritimes a while ago and the gas wasn't cheap there. In fact when I was driving through Maine almost all the cars in the station were from Canada. The people on PEI weren't to happy to find out that I was looking for land to buy either.
BTW what is with Irwin up there anyway seems they own everything.

Regards
Mark

You can breathe easy now Chickie for I too have a fishing story.

In the far north of Saskatchewan, on the beautiful sandy shores of Lake Athabasca, a 102 lb lake trout was caught. The contents of its stomach was inspected before the rather large fish was released. Some of the contents included portions of a peperoni pizza, a Tim Hortons donut and a pair of work boots from Marks Work Warehouse. Unfortunately the fish did not survive this stomach inspection, so the fish was mounted and is now on display at an undisclosed location. This is in fact a world record.

Half of Saskatchewan is comprised of lakes, rivers and marshes and affords the world traveler some of the most beautiful and spectacular sites to be seen. In fact, just a short drive north of Regina lies the beautiful Qu'appelle Valley, A glacial spillway that crosses over 2/3rd's of the Province of Saskatchewan. The Qu'applle Valley is home to many species of birds, water foul, deer, moose and the humble prairie gopher and is also home of the Big Foot and his girlfriend.

I remain
out on a limb
your pal
Steve

But does it have a beat you can dance to...

One of the many and varied attractions in Whiteshell Provincial Park (we also used to live there) is the Lily Pond.


Quote:
The Lily Pond was created 3.75 billion years ago by advancing glaciers which left the high rock cliffs surrounding the pond. During the summer, the pond is covered in a blanket of white and yellow lilies.
I think I'm starting to run out of material.

Next victim

Chickie.

A pond full of lilies. Yes a beautiful site indeed. Indeedie doodie.

Why just a 30 min drive north of Regina lies the beautiful and picturesque Village of Buena Vista, which in fact happens to be the home of the Funomena Mobile Museum of the Weird and Strange. It is, in fact, the worlds smallest mobile museum with the largest collection of the weird and strange. Buena Vista is also home of the Chevelle from Hell. You can visit the Funomena Mobile Museum of the Weird and Strange and the Chevelle from Hell at

www.funomena.com
If this sounds like a plug for someone, why it is. My wife and I built the trailer and have toured it across Canada and the US without, I may add, ever getting arrested.

I have a few more ideas
although they're not very good
I remain
a fellow Canadian
and
your pal
Steve

I might get spanked for this one.....

We have......da da da DA......Chuck the Catfish.....he resides in Selkirk Manitoba.
Selkirk (we also lived there for awhile) proclaimed itself Catfish Capital of Canada where it is not uncommon to pull a 30lb Catfish out of the Red River on any given day.

I seem to be coming up with a lot of fishy tales today.

Hmmmm.....Aha!! Lower Fort Garry. The oldest stone fur trading post still intact in North America, built by the Hudson's Bay Company in the 19th century.

Steve, ole buddy, I find myself struggling to top your mobile museum....I may have to concede if things don't turn around soon.....

Always tenacious...

Chickie.

Do you want to hear my Hamilton joke, then?

I am
a
Canadian
that votes
in elections

and

as always

your pal

Steve

The jokes a no go. My wife is from Hamilton and wont let me tell it.
I do love her though.

However, taking a step away from the natural history and wildlife of our fine provinces, Saskatchewan is the home province to many famous people in both the sports and entertainment industries. Among the many dignitaries that hail from Saskatchewan are Gordy Howe, the famed hockey player, Joni Mitchell, the esteemed singer of parking lots and wearer of dark glasses, and Leslie Nielsen of the Naked Gun fame. We are also home to many farmers that are outstanding in their field. These are just a few of the better known celebrities from our fine province that have influenced the world. Whether any of them can actually spell Saskatchewan is another matter.

Its just me
again
supper is almost ready

your pal

Steve
