Bernardston Engine Show

Route 10 Bernardston MA

28 May 2011

If it is heavily overcast and threatening to rain it must be Saturday!  We left the house at 7:00 AM and drove north to MA through mist and scattered sprinkles but wee not deterred.  Be the time we got to the show site the mist had stopped and it was just overcast and humid. We unloaded the boys, Terri went of to the flea market looking for things that interest her and I went in search of the fellows from NEMES.  I found Norm, Russ and Rich and planted the boys under Norm's canopy and went off myself to burn up photons and take video.

As I walked around I found Dave Osier and Rollie Gaucher and later Jim Paquette with his companion Edgar the mellow doughnut hound.  I had a great time and talked to many folks about their displays and interests.  All in all it was a great day
