I know I've probably asked this before, but how far are you from the US border in Shuswap? I was up in Oroville for a wrestling tournament last weekend, about 5 miles from the Cheddar Curtain.
Hi Mort: it's about 320 kilometres from Anglemont down to Osoyoos, which is very close to the U. S. Border. I have a friend who lives there...hot rod chum.

Mr. Google lists it as a 4 hour plus drive.

You're absolutely correct. But the couple who wanted to buy the house found out that the major lenders no longer will mortgage any property in the Gulf Islands which is not serviced by a ferry. This little goodie came about after the crash of 2008.

Can you guess what this has done to property values on the islands? Right into the tank.

Not to worry Jim, the right person will come along sooner or later.

In the mean time there's more than enough work to keep me busy here at the Shuswap until the middle of this century!

Well, Damn! I thought that it was sort of a done deal back then, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope that someone comes along soon who is able to swing the purchase.

Hopefully, I just returned from my last trip to Ruxton Island. One last van load of stuff and I think I'm out of there.

I did take a whole load of photos, so as soon as I get the chance I will see what I can do about posting the last batch.

Busy working on the excavator today back at the Shuswap.

Your hospital 'visit'


Keith, ironic,was reading your past pages and at approx same time as your incident, I was rushed, with lights and sirens, to Nanaimo, because of 'afib' attack! After 5 days in and countless xrays, tests, etc. nothing was found wrong, so, I was sent home, and even 'midi' tests showed no wrongs, so, they told me to lose 30 lbs, no chocolate, no coffee, no alcohol, and get busy and exercise....yeah, right, with a 'healing' torn right Achilles tendon..mmmm! They put me on another blood thinner, not Warfarin, and I have had no problems for three weeks, and started to walk again, although just little bits! I will follow your site, so I have a 'warning' next time..anything happens to you, so stay healthy...eh?
Cheers

There's nothing quite like answering a post a mere 7 months and 14 days late is there?

I gather by now that you're much better. As you probably know, I've had to slow down an awful lot. Most annoying when I still have half a house to rebuild. It's mostly arthritis, but it's in quite a few of my old joints now.

The latest agony is a rotator cuff injury in my left shoulder...hurts like a son of a gun most of the time. I figure I'm too old to have a shoulder replacement, so I'll have to put up with it until I can give it a few months of uninterrupted rest...like that's going to happen in my lifetime!

Glad to see you're back on the '38 again. Doesn't look like I will realistically get back into the hot rod game now. Some things you just have to say goodbye to. But I can still enjoy getting to some of the shows now and again. Missed the big one in Kamloops this year, but next year for sure.
