Jimbo wasn’t much of a walker. So in the years before he was old enough to drive, I’d hoof it over to his place and we would mount up on this old tandem bike that the Josephsons had . I don’t know it’s history, but we gave this bike some serious new life. We went all o...

We all have such a story. This is Jimbo’s & mine. Not sure how it was before Marc was out of the house, but 110 Allendale drive had a kind of oddball railroad configuration of two bedrooms as part of the upstairs. Tombo had the back 40, Jimbo was up front, closer to th...

I was able to purchase some quite illegal fireworks to set off at the dock at Candlewood Lake a few years ago. The police received a noise disturbance call and arrived. They waited up top to watch a few of the fireworks and then came to say no more after this. Jimbo pi...
