I miss Wheel Pizza back home in Antigonish

Back in July, I spent 2 weeks out in Nova Scotia. We were helping Bell/Aliant upgrade their cell network. We spent most of our time on Cape Breton Island, but did some work in Aulds Cove and Antigonish. We were as far north as Dingwall at one point. The Cabot Trail is sure nice. We were staying in Sydney most of the time. Spent a lot of time in Governers Pub. Everyone there was very friendly, it was awesome. I will try to dig up some pictures from out there.

I could never move back, I left in the winter of '99 and haven't ever missed it. Once I found the mountains (although it was in Colorado) I couldn't ever imagine being with out them!

But I do miss the good donairs and fresh Keith's!

I'm from Alberta, anybody else?????:d;) Spent 7 1/2 weeks out east and about 4 weeks in the maritimes including newfieland this past summer showing the kids where Canada's history is. If I was born in the maritimes it would be hard to stray to far from home. Other than the mountains it is the best part of Canada! Didn't have any donairs, to busy eating lobster and scallops.:d:d:d

Not so hard when you want to make a decent living, left there 16 years ago and even if I could make a comparable wage now not sure I'd want to go back...

Proud to be a maritimer, but equally as proud to be an Albertan.....

You loose your status as a Maritmer after 5 years absent, unless you come and visit once a year, minimum 2 weeks and still have yer accent, eh!

It only takes one or two well-poured rum and the accent is right back.

growing up in Halifax one doesn't develop much of an accent in the first place.... not like the outside communities... hell I gots a buddy who grew up 45 mins from me and he sounds more like a freaking newfi than jimmy Flynn... who by the way is doing a show in Morinville in June...:d
