    Thanks Ted, I used to play on that tank when I was a kid, time to bring our Grandson up there to do the same. What movie was filmed up there? Bob

    That's really nice. My town (city is probably more accurate) is no-where near so picturesque. The surrounding countryside is nice, especially on the north side of the Fraser River, but the town itself is pretty uninspired, typical modern urban sprawl.
  4. "mr deeds" with Adam Sandler.
    the writer of "mr Blandings builds his dream home" lived in town and is "loosely" based on the area.

    "you want your lintels mortised or nailed in?" one of my favorite lines from that movie. (Mr. Baldings) Bob

    I need to do some exploring to see if there's anywhere in town to take some pictures. Because mostly this is what we end up with....

    Ha Ha no it wasnt in protest. It was at the Pierre Street Masters rod runs show and shine. I was just the fortunate one that got the parking space at the foot of the steps going into our state capital. I wish I would have had a nice camera with the correct lens so the photo wouldnt have been chopped off.

    That's what you get around here too...:( There are so few buildings that have any character at all. There is a really neat architecturally designed late fifties split level home a few blocks from me that looks like something straight out of a Barris photoshoot, but its surrounded on all sides by ugly monsterhouses, you would have to frame the photo really carefully to cut out the background. As far as neat old commercial or civic buildings, there arent many that spring to mind. Muttley, I have always loved that shot of your comet, that's a great backdrop.
  27. My car at a downtown car show and my car behind Madeline Merlo who was in town filming a not yet released movie. She has a hit song "Honey Jack". The guy in the photo is not me... 11903783_889306574458521_8840048297520262286_n.jpg madeline merlo and my car.jpg
