Well, the relay ended with a bang this afternoon -- literally. In fact, LOTS of bangs -- 10 smarts plus our police escorts were pelted with gravel and pieces of Garry's roof as it bounced along the highway (his roof, not his car). About 1km from our exit off the 416, we hit a huge patch of gravel that was presumably lost from the back of a truck. I just grabbed my head and gritted my teeth as I listened to the gravel bouncing off my car. We all made it through with our bodies unscathed, but all our cars are damaged -- paint chips, chips in our windows, cracked windshields, and Garry's lost and crumbled roof. SUCKS BIG TIME
Other than that, it was a good day. Met some new smarties and saw lots of familiar smarties, drinks at Brewed Awakenings, BBQ at Star, picked up a couple of bottles of Milligan's courtesy of Glenn, got a quick hug from Estelle (who had her chalk out again!!)...... oh, and got a double-peck from Glenn who's learned the Quebec way to say Hello
Thanks to everyone who made the day and the whole relay happen.
Looking forward to getting together with everyone again at the picnic on Friday
