"One afternoon when John Horne and Brian Giesbrecht (the guys across the hall) went to the rec hall, Jack Z. came up with the idea of dismantling their room and setting it up in the parking lot. Jerry & Jack and I did just that. Jerry Hutchison in the back, I don't recall the name of the guy in front left, (we just called him ''Sammy the camel jockey''), and myself and the blond guy to my left with the glasses is Pat Walsh. Then John Horne (sans dentures) and Brian Giesbrecht upside down."

"Just another picture of that day. Left to right... myself, Brian, John (with teeth in this time), Jerry and Jack. It was Brian's and John's beds and tables in the parking lot."

John & Brian got their revenge.
