"Belly, is in Ihcre now, whooping il up for the Rangers." "Oh, I guess Bobby Orr will knock llic earth sideways again I says "But with Ihe taxes unchanged on TVs, I don't even want to look at them any more." Sam pounded the broken thing-a-ma-jig off the rod weed- er. "Whatcha think of the bud- he says. I says, "Makes me homesick. Remember Sam, I used to live in Toronto, al- most on Bay street.

'Ottawa's so inefficient" I asks Well, Ihey get the nut on the bolt. Sam says: "You know what business is. Half these busi- nesses are owned by Ameri- cans. They're only human, like us. With Ihe climale in this country, tliis feeling gainst the U.S., why they might not in- vest." "Half that money will end up with Uncle I says, catch- ing the spirit of the thing.

Now Ihey have the rod bolted into place. ,So we head for the house for coffee. The kids scrape the mud from their boots. We bundle them into the car "Our roof's says Betty, as we prepare to leave. "That last wind took some of the shingles off. I've collect- ed most of them up. Sam col- Icrtod quite a few." "Tack 'em bajck I says. "Oh, we've been through it Betty says. "Come Rainy clouds hide the mmm- tains and the sunset. "Ottawa's so I says.
