Going to Canada

Bill Grumbine (Kutztown PA)
>Greetings all

The wonderful people at the Woodturning Guild of Ontario have run out of demonstrators, and so they have asked me to come up and fill some time for them. So, I will be appearing up there this coming Saturday, if anyone here wants to come along and say hello, throw rotten vegetables, etc.

The last time I was in Canada for any length of time (this does not count an hour or two at Niagra falls) was for Expo '67. I was all of eight years old. I understand that where we are going they do speak English, although a little differently than we do here in eastern PA. I will never forget my kid's first impression of our own Jim Shaver when he came to our home in Easton. "Daddy, he has an accent!" This week it will be me who has the accent I suppose, but I am really looking forward to this trip. I hope to see some of you there.
