Hi everyone,

It sure gave me a start when I saw my picture at the top of this page. Was that really me?? Lots of water under the bridge since then.

After finishing High School I thought I'd apply for a 'summer' job at CP Rail in the Mechanical Department. Funny thing...I'm still there! Railroading got into my blood and has never left. I also got married early on. I met my wife at church while we were attending youth group and things carried on from there. We just celebrated our 27th anniversary on May 22. Carol and I are still raising our family. We had the 2 kids right away, and then for some reason waited ten years before having two more. Our two oldest are in Montreal pursuing undergrad studies and graduate studies so we stilll have 2 at home. They're attending Cornerstone Christian School at Kingman ( find that on a map!), the same school where Carol works as a Special Needs Aid. Emma is nuts about horses and Zach is soccer crazy so we drive, drive,drive!!! We're so glad God gave us two more kids...they say it keeps you young, but not if the lack of hairs on my head is any indication! They sure keep us hopping!

We're very much involved at our little country church near South Cooking Lake what with music, youth and Home fellowship. We don't have time to get into trouble!!

Anyways, it'll be fun to catch up with in september. See you then!

School Story:

Does anyone remember Photography 20 with Mr. Huizinga? I loaded up a film canister with the ends of individual match heads, lit one, through it in and put the lid back on thinking it would just fizzle out for lack of air....SURPRISE!! A few seconds after I threw it in my desk the lid shot off and smoke was billowing out! Mr. Huizinga actually was a real trooper and let me off easy. The embarrasment was punishment enough!
