Toronto Foos ... I'm coming up!
Visiting a friend for a long weekend and hitting the Bike Show Saturday March 8th.
Just thought I'd warn ya in advance. And of course hitting my favorite St. Lawrence market Sat morning too.
Climbing Above It All
Think they will let you in? or back again?
Last time I was there - I came back our now defunct ferry.

Next I go thru - and man asks me if I had this and that and I said just some sausage etc (he asked what it was made of --- and I told him it was pork - as at that time beef products were still not allowed into the U.S.). But did he believe me? NooOoooO. Step aside.
It was nearly 10:30 at night - we took longer to arrive into port due to rough weather on the lake - and I had ONE freakin bus left to get home with for the evening - and I let them know that.
I sat in a glass enclosed room for nearly an hour. And of course I blew up, badly. Ended up having 4 officials in front of me explaining the delay, etc. Idiots. The whole exercise of examining my sausages took 3 minutes. I'm not admitting anything, anymore. You wanna search it, go for it.
Dances With Cars
What a PITA... for some damned sausages? Madness. Well there are no beef issues so far this year. The Bike show is always fun. thanks for the warning...
Imagine what Ronald McDonald has to put up with to get all that Canadian Bacon for his Egg McMuffins!
