Chipping into the tables of stone -UGH! Thank God we went to the wax tablets! Then there was making our own paper.
Don't even get me started on making our own ink!

The problem with the stone tablets was when you made a mistake....had to use slow-drying cement as white out...took about 4 days to dry. report was on hold and you couldn't go home to Wilma at the cave until the report was finished. :(

Hey Pete, was it still the NWMP when you joined or had it changed to the RCMP by then ? ;)
It's not if you win or lose, but how you place the blame.

I thought you were either the guide who kept getting lost....or one of the troops back at camp who stampeded all the horses when they fired their rifles so he could find his way back to camp. :)

I would have been even LESS qualified for the Force during the March West than I was when I walked out of the Insp's office in the old "O" Div HQ!
Naturally, I am now depressed at how mean you turkeys have all been to me...so I am just going to slink off and rest up against my 35 year pension and severance package RRSP while I sob myself to sleep!
