My Obsessions Are......
#1...........Going in search of the " Old Indian" as I have come to
speak of what I do when I go off arrowhead hunting. I prowl around where few
people go on the river, often on the edges of marshes or gravel shorelines with my
canoe in tow, looking for signs of human junk. I find our recent selves, stuff from
the French and Indian period and then I see the things of cultures still remembered
and cultures long ago lost. ------ The Native Indian peoples who lived, hunted
or simply passed on through this area on their journeys, left an' open book of clues
for those who wish to view them. I am often transported in my imagination into their
presence and love to envision them near by............
#2.............I golf to little these days. But I am still hooked! 35 years and
counting, I'll play 18 holes with
anyone, anytime! well maybe 9. Ready? Lets Go!
#3...............................Hanging out in the beautiful " 1000 Islands" area of the
St. Lawrence River. This is especially true in Autumn and Spring time when the crowds
have thinned out from the Summer surge of tourism. We are lucky to have a
place on an island, in the middle of the river near Canadian waters. The Price of
solitude.............. is TAXES.................
#4................MG sports cars or any Classic British sports car. I acquired
my 3rd one for the Gargoyle sculpture. It's a 1976 Midget, 1500 cc. Convertible, which
I recently sold. She ran like a champ and had room for my dogs, but not my wife Karen and
the dogs at the same time. Tough break honey! The 1st was a 1960 MGA 1600 cc. Roadster
with 15" wire wheels and "British Racing Green" paint with a 6" silver
racing stripe the full length of the car on the drivers side. All original condition.
I got it for $400.00 and had it 2 1/2 years (note the bedroll on the back).
What a car!..... My 2nd was an 1972 MGB
which I traded for a 59' GMC pickup truck in the middle of winter when the snow
was 3' feet deep. That truck is somewhere on Grindstone Is.
My 4th and favorite so far is a black 1959 MGA Roadster that I traded for pieces of my
The 5th is a red 1973 MG that I bought on ebay and have fixed up (for Karen to drive! )
She didn't drive it, I sold it and bought a 1974 Jensen Healey / w the Lotus 907 twin cam. Cool ride.
So if you see a little Black or Yellow Bluuuurrr on some back road it might be me trying to empty
the 7 gallon tank.............
1976 Midget 1958 MGA/Gone 59' MGA Red 73' 59' at Glen Concours 74.5 Jensen Healey.
#5................. Our Dogs have the life, food, comfort, bones, the river, sticks,
and squirrels to chase. Hoover ( RIP) the mother hunted minnows all day, and Omar the son
likes his frogs and snakes. They both respect Kitty (RIP) and Newbie! We love em'............
Hoover's gone for her last boat ride..... 7/11/13 An Kitty followed soon after...
