Oct 27, 2008 - Onto see my old mate John

I first met John when I was 10. Its the type of freindship where we just pick up where we left off. Its as though we saw each other yesterday - a true friendship. A nice Chinese and visit a couple of hs children, all grown up and with kids. It's sad to say goodbye and I hope he will come over to Vancouver next year for a visit:)
