Mrs. Lynch arrived home with  her new daughter, Linda Lee. A  cute name, eh? (I picked it!)  I saw an old timer yesterday,  Mr. Jack Dane, so 'hello' to you  and the family. .

Another boat that hit the water yesterday was Brian Roach's  new craft, and it's a beauty, too.  He deserves a lot of credit. He  was going to launch it at midnight (to save on the champagne?) but I guess he was talked out of that one., Too bad,  Brian, anyway, Congrats to you!  .vlr. and Mrs. Ray Johns, for  merly of our Trail, were visiting  Woodfibre for the week-end.
