Taken in 1929......2 years after the bridge was built. The bridge is still standing today.

Is that Doug or Fred crossing the border? :P

Damn!!!! It is Fred driving and me walking beside the car!!! He was a wild a$$ed driver way back then, too! ...and you thought Clyde Barrow could make that 32 Ford V-8 sing!!??!! Lots of Rum Runnin' back in the day......now we are just mellow ole dudes, who burn a chunk or two of black rocks, and try to stay warm. Indians were still raiding the settlements when Fred and I were boys......Orville and Wilber sent us telegrams frequently......back before the Govt took over our way of life.....
Tanks for the mammaries, Bob!!! :oops: :roll: ;) :shock: :sick:

PS: That was the last time I wore a tie and jacket, too!!!!!!

I'm still not sure I got enough for being the wheel man on that venture, but, damn it was fun & things were definitly simpler.Wilber & Orville sure were glad we got that stuff through. I still think you cut quite the figure all dolled up like that. :D Ahhhh, mammaries indeed. ;)

You would think Bob would let sleeping Dawgs lie, but oh no.....next thing he will reveal is our old expression: "What happens in Maine, Stays in Maine" That ISN'T just for Vegas, and we coined it before Bugsy even went out in the damned desert.

I would be 50 years before Fred slowed down enough to have a brand new officer pull us over and ask: "Where is the fire, Mario?" To answer the question Fred would casually say: It's a young filly down in Eastport!"

Belated thanks to the Maine State Police for supporting that noble quest to satisfy a burning desire! They are tough, but they have a softer side in an emergency. I think it was nearly 6 months before Fred could wipe that smile off his face after that weekend. We thought it might take surgery, but he looked soooooo good grinning like that.........WTF. :shock: ;) :roll: :oops:
