Where is Waldo?

Since 1979, Peter has been
disappearing one weekend every fall and spring to pursue a passion once shared with his brother, John .. (then later, John's sons and our sons). Here you will see him at last at the hallowed "Barrie Automotive Flea Market". It is the largest event of its kind in Canada, rivaled only in size by the one held in Hershey, Pennsylvania in October. Peter is one among 2000 vendors, hawking their wares. In his case he sells automotive sales brochures and magazine ads that date back to the 1930's. Originally, Peter slept in the back of our 1955 Chrysler Station Wagon, then later in a tent on the roof of the car. This fall, Peter attended in style with our new BT Cruiser. Both returned in good shape requiring nothing more than a long bath.

We are now putting the finishing touches on "The Cruiser". Today we built a spice rack and installed a wooden bar to hold the cutting board and trays against the wall. It's like setting up 'house' all over again!
