Nov. 13 & 14, 2006

I have not posted on a long time because I’ve been extremely busy, but all that will be in another post that I’m working on.

On Monday I traveled to Toronto to attend the 2006 Hockey Hall of Fame induction celebration.

The inductees were:

• Herb Brooks
• Dick Duff
• Harley Hotchkiss
• Patrick Roy

I was in a hurry to get to the airport but had to slow down:



Finally on the open road….



Why does it always seem like these places are very close to the airport????? LOL



Do I have time?........no, bummer:





It was lunch time so I made a pit stop for some of Montreal’s famous ‘steamies’ at one of the best spots in town:



I won’t miss my flight:



OK, now the fun really starts.

I had the chance to drop by an AD before the event and sample some goodies.

UN found 38 vintage pocket watch movements and made something extremely special with them.

Here is NUMBER 1/38 in Platinum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!























How does it look?????? I haven’t posted a “Nad Shot” in a long time so I hope it still looks good, LOL!!!!!





JLC:





I got to see the GO Senator with date. It’s an amazing watch but sadly we cannot see the in-house calibre because of the solid case back:



















Battle of the Pilots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!















Tough choice???? Yes….no???!!!!!!!!!!!

















Close up!!!!!!!!!!!!









We finally made it over to the Hockey Hall of Fame:



Stay tuned for the HHOF photos as well as pics from the GTG that followed.

Thanks for looking!!

I big thanks to everyone who showed up and I’m looking forward to meeting you all again. You should all start planning for next years’ F1 GTG here in Montreal during the Grand Prix weekend.

Also, thanks to Mario for picking me up at the airport and even bringing me back the following morning, thanks Bro!!!

I over-nighted at the Westin Prince:

Well, that’s all for now. It’s nice to be back and I hope to start posting again on a regular basis.
