Heres me in 1966 in a 14ft fiberglass canoe that was purchased about 1958-59 I think. Muskrat lake, Cobden, Ontario

Nice to see the respect given a "mature" canoe.

Robin,
nice work on that canoe.
I notice that you, like me, haven't changed a bit since 1966.
cheers ted

Thanks for the kind words, and yes Ted, I think we probably do look the same now as in 1966, full head of hair, 30 inch waist....

YO, Wanna buy a bridge in brooklyn...(I even still have that funny Long Island accent you all asked about at the LaVerendrye Gathering) :doh:

Very nice Robin. Two green canoes. If you get tired of that one with the wood on the inside, let me know. :wink:
What was that Long Island invite for dinner? To funny that acsent.
Hope you're having a good summer and you're biggest problems in life are which canoe to paddle. :clap:

Nice work Robin.
I think I'll go down and visit you. Maybe you can restore my battered old body some. :lol:
Take care.

A photo of a grandchild in the same canoe in the same place would make a nice triptych.

(Lovely work Robin)

Thanks Mike, Yes, it would be nice to get my grandaughter in the canoe in Cobden, but she's only 5 months old. All she does is sleep and pee in her pants :D
I bet when she's old enough to canoe and go to Canada with me, all I'll do is sleep and pee in my pants :(

Ah, Wake Robin,

A thing of beauty indeed. Yet, can it be as dreamy a paddle as your Chestnut? A hard choice methinks.

Well done,
Hélène
