As a child, I always had a fear of someone under the bed at night. So I went to a shrink and told him:
“I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there’s somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy.”

“Just put yourself in my hands for one year,” said the shrink....  “Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.”

“How much do you charge?”

“$150. per visit,” replied the doctor

“I'll sleep on it,” I said.

Six months later the doctor met me on the street.  “Why didn't you come to see me about those fears you were having?” he asked.

“Well, $150 a visit, three times a week for a year, is $23,400.00. 

A bartender cured me for $10.00. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought a new pickup truck.”

“Is that so?” With a bit of an attitude he said, “and how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?”

“He told me to cut the legs off the bed. 
Ain’t nobody under there now.

 It’s always better to get a second opinion.

Car Show at Mayfair Care Centre

My name is Lonnie Pakos and I work at the Mayfair Care Centre in the recreation department. We are trying to plan a pre-Father's Day car show on Monday, June 11th at 1 PM. We are curious if any of your members may be interested in participating in this event.

If so could you please contact Lonnie at 403-252-4445 or

If the weather is unfavourable we will cancel on the 11th and we will try again at 1 o'clock on Friday, June 15th.
We have invited other individuals and car clubs to join us so at this point we have no idea as to how many participants we may have.

Thank you very much for your time

The Heritage Centre

I would personally like to invite the Foothills Model-T Club to display your automobiles at the Heritage Treasures Springtime Market which takes place on June 8, 9 and 10 at “The Heritage Centre” located just 1 mile east of Cremona, Alberta. Ideally, Saturday (June 9) would be our busiest day, and we would welcome you even for a brief couple hours if you are out on tour. Our market will include 50+ Antique, Vintage Vendors and Artisans and the cars would be a bonus feature. 

Our venue is “Wondrous” set on 10 acres, it includes a 1915 Eaton’s Catalogue Home; a 1908 Historic Barn restored to its turn of the century grandeur with an expansive Event Centre Addition. This expansive property is the perfect setting to allow you to showcase your beautiful automobiles. 

Please feel free to contact me at 403-991-7993 or email In addition, you may contact Debora Rice-Salomons at 403-651-6090 or
