  2. Thought I'd start a thread for humorous and/or thoughtful postings about life in general. Please keep everything in good taste. I hope this becomes a daily draw and brings lots of past Smart members back to the site, along with newbies also. So, here we go.....
  3. "How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?" Satchel Paige- baseball player
  4. Saw this little bugger at the Loblaws SuperStore in St.Thomas a few days ago. Logo on it was 'MATR X NEXA'. Couldn't stop to talk with driver, an elderly gent loading his groceries. Made me feel like I was driving a bus ! I've got couple more photos, but all over 2 Mb file size so system won't let me download. Haven't got a clue how to reduce pix size. Oh well.

  11. Our first dinner outing since November 2021. Great to see a lot of the old timers as well as some newbies. A dozen folks turned out tonight. Opinion was 'a good time was had by all'. Particular hits were the $7.99 6oz burger&fries, and the $4.25 16oz draft beers. Set aside Tuesday April 09th for our next dinner outing. It'll be at the New Sarum Diner, south of Belmont (Hwy 73 & Hwy 3). I'll post a signup page, with website and directions. Keep an eye out. 👀
  12. 'We back, baby' Time to get together, as we did in the past. We've been to The Dawghouse a few times over the years, so it's a good bet for quality and value. https://www.dawghouse.ca It's been a couple of years since the Smart car group has been on a monthly dinner run. So Tuesday February 13th around 6PM'ish. I have interest from 8 people I recently spoke with, but as always, everyone is welcome.
