what a whirlwind it was for us....

We were due to have our Stag and Doe that week. We had booked a City of Ottawa facility for it but the city had closed everything, so we were stuck.

Luckily rabidmonkey came through, offered his parents backyard, complete with pool and trampoline for the party. It turned out to be one of the greatest parties of all time.

We'll always remember that night!!!


3 words...


Guitar player, completely swished, rollerblading down the road, all the while, one of his biggest fans, shouting..."THE HANDS!!! DON'T FALL, CAREFUL OF THE HANDS!!!!"

Think I was able to save the last beer for DaveyBoy, or maybe it was FBTS.

Thanks again SHANER!
