    Okay,
    So, like I said, things have been a little off here lately.
    It would have been nice to have this helmet at some time of the year other than winter.
    I really wanted to take it out somewhere other than my own house to take a few photos.
    Most of January was close to -30 deg. C. It makes it difficult to even want to leave the house. When the weather was nicer for approx. two weeks, there were other more important things to be concerned about. Other than that it has been -20 to -25, again, hard to even want to go out.
    Recently my brother was diagnosed with cancer. he has been going through chemo and radiation treatment. During this time, he contracted some form of illness. Originally, he was told that he had Hepatitis and Influenza A. Since then, the consensus is that he had pheumonia and H1N1. The chemo drugs that he was given have caused some form of lung damage and he has a difficult time breathing. He ended up in the ICU at the local hospital.
    My youngest daughter recently gave birth to a son, who's middle name is Anton, after my father. She has also recently moved into her own place which creates lots of work for dad.
    So, unfortunately you will have to be satisfied with some photos of the helmet in my collection room.
    Not quite as grand as Doug's but here they are.
    Ralph.

    Any photos are better than none Ralph. I had no idea about what was going on in your life and have no idea of what it is like dealing with your climate mate.

    Mark, why don't you hang onto it for a couple of weeks and take it to the island or wherever? This is a one off trip, I'm sure they'll be plenty like me who'd love to see pics of this helmet in beautiful Canada. When it gets to me I'll have it for a couple of weeks and you certainly won't be the first or last mate.

    I would not say that you can ever get used to this type of weather, but rather you learn to deal with it. Have to go to work but, sometimes on the weekends I don't even start my truck if I don't have to.

    Grand be damned...that's a Fine collection room by Anybody's standards! I especially like how many of the badge frames have lots of extra room for future additions! That's thinking ahead! Must be the German blood, hey? I live up near the Canadian border too-pretty near Lake Superior, so I can absolutely commiserate with you on the Winter this year-it's been a Bear, for sure, and no sign of the end yet in sight. Sorry to hear about all the medical problems-again, I definitely hear you! Seems like when it rains, of late, it always turns to flood. Good luck, Ralph!
