6 May 2007
May 6 dawned cloudy and threatening in south east Connecticut. As I was getting dressed to go to Dunstable I could hear rain pouring down on the skylight is our dining room and I almost said the heck with it and went back to bed. But then I thought about the number of time I have done just that only to have other fellows say that it was a great day at the show in (fill in the blank). So I headed out hoping for the best and two hours north of home the weather was quite nice after all. Partly cloudy and chilly enough to need a jacket. About half way up to Dunstable I realized that my cap, which I had thought was in my car, was really in my wife's van so the first order of business was to buy a new cap to keep the sun out of my eyes at the show. Got a nice gray International Harvester cap. Can't have too many caps, don't ya know.
Dunstable, this was my first visit to this show, turned out to be a nice collection of just about every sort of thing mechanical. Not a large show but full of friendly folk anxious to share information about their particular interests.

This is Edgar who travels with NEMES member Jim Paquette. As I was doing these photos I realized that I hadn't taken Jim's picture. Well, best to get the chief of the crew.
This is President Dick Boucher's grandson with Bea Boucher his grandma.
