Mama Bear and I recently moved to a house in Leamington, ON. CA. It is the house that I grew up in from 1945 to 1970, and we are getting settled in quite comfortably. In the move, I found a couple of large old "White Rose" oil cans that I had been saving to keep odd bits in. I knew it was time to get rid of the old drums as the new house is a lot smaller than the house we were leaving. I called a local fella that I knew collected such memorabilia. We had not really talked with one another but I knew his wife who worked at a store next to our store. We also have mutual friends/acquaintances and we had quite a good visit today in our driveway !! Turns out, Jim is a real "oil nut" and I told him about BITOG and what a great community of oil nuts it was. Perhaps he'll "join up" and share some of his experiences. You can visit his site at http://www.allcanadiancompany.com/pg2.html . Look in the "old photos" for the White Rose station in Leamington.... that is where I worked during high school and our new home is just to the left of the the large house on the left of the station. Small world ain't it ??!!
