All I wanted to do was just hang out here on weekends, just to unwind and chill out— watch a dog get neutered, a kitten take a pill. Maybe see a hamster get thrown in the trash. Then one day this guy said, Hey, wanna try something wild? Well, he took me to a different animal hospital, a much more intense one, and it. Was. A RUSH. Have you ever seen a rhino get a tonsillectomy? Ever seen a giraffe hooked up to a dialysis machine? Man, it’s like nothing else. Now I need more and more and I’m out of control. I’m watching crocodiles get skin tags removed like 5, 6 times a day. Oops! Somehow I died from this? Now I’m in heaven with all the trash-can hamsters! LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES, KIDS!
I’m getting there.
WHO is “sponsoring” this, exactly? The de Medicis? I bet this feral monster’s name isn’t even Richard. INTERNET, HOW DO I GET YOU TO GIVE ME MONEY?

This next series of photos is from 1975 on a section of old highway between Osoyoos and Keremeos BC. A bunch of guys got together and made arrangements with local authorities to close it off a few times that summer for drag racing. Word got around and it was pretty well attended. Cars from the southern interior of BC, and a few Okanagan County, Washington cars ran there. No timing equipment at first, but a good time was had by all. I did relief flag starting duties, but mostly took photos. I did run my 4 spd W31 there for the one time it was open in 1976. It shut down after it was determined that the insurance that they had wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on.
The local RCMP constable fully supported this as well. You’ll see his police car in the background of a couple of the photos. (454 Biscayne ) Of course there was an ambulance and tow truck there too.
“Hey, it’s finally raining!”
“You thinking what I’m thinking?”
“Are you thinking, ‘Lay out by the sewer?’”
“Haha, trick question— THAT’S ALL I EVER THINK ABOUT!”

This is beyond a delight.
