Anyone who has lived in Toronto knows that it snows a lot and how squished you get in the subway!

In this sequence, Ken's dad Charles comes out to visit, and my dad is showing him the little house we use to live and the bus he used as a workshop. My dad was as much interested in Charles as as he was interested in my dad - they hit it off really well. My dad was the salt of the earth and Ken's dad was a man of the sky. Charles was a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force and with NATO, and he flew some amazing planes during the 50s and 60s and had some great stories to tell. My dad started his scrap metal business in the 50s when the military decided to turn  the Avrow Arrow into scrap metal! That scrap ended up in Hamilton at the same place my dad took his scrap cars they turned into cubes that were then recycled into raw metal again. Defasco and Stelco kept the two major steel plants smoking!
