Great pictures joey. The casino one is how I remember you. There aren't any of me at Wigan. But have you got one like this from about 78 LOL.

Great pic. If that was taken on the deck of the old Ark, (looks like Phantoms in the background), then yeah, somewhere I have something similar. Might be in the attic though 🙂 Pic taken after Divisions, early in the trip methinks? What a bloody eight month ordeal that commission was!!!!!!!

So you're now a Steve Smith lookalike?  Do you get mistaken for him and are asked to be funny?

I DO!  Especially when I'm visiting my sister in Canada.  I get people coming up to me and saying, "Wow! Red Green!  In Person!  Can I have your autograph on a piece of Duct Tape?"

 

I actually resent that, because I am older than he, and also Canadian, spent a lot of time in the woods, was always unhandy at home, use a lot of duct tape to fix things that should be replaced, and I also always wore plaid shirts and a cap, and had a gray beard and mustache before him.  Only, I don't have an idiot nephew (mine is very intelligent) and I never wore suspenders!  🤣

Mayport was a blast. Six weeks detached to Cecil Field airbase on expenses! Stoned most nights! The Med was intensely forgettable, but that f***ing hurricane off Iceland was a nightmare. Woke up in 5NA3 mess to find a foot of water due to split in the hull!!!!! Didnt get fixed til we made it to Gib.

Oh, and BTW, the REAL elites were us Wafu's. 🙂

That's probably gone way over the heads of most on here, but I'm chuckling inwardly.  His show is very popular though, I used to watch it in Minnesota and Toronto when living there.  I have an idiot nephew, I don't think they're that uncommon.

I wondered how you knew him.  I used to spend a lot of time visiting The UK during the '60s-early 2000s, and never remembered seeing "Red Green" on TV there.  You have no idea how apropos your comment was.  I've had my beard and mustache since 1963 (never shaved it off).  Ever since it became gray, I've looked just like Smith.  And, funny as it seems, I've always worn jeans or cacquis, with long-sleeved plaid shirts (that's my uniform).  You can see the one I was wearing in the photo above.  Ask Rod (Modern Soul Sucks).  He's seen me a lot in L.A., so, there it's way too hot to wear long sleeves, so I wear mostly tee shirts.  When I visit England and return to Canada, I always wear long-sleeved plaid shirts.  Not only that, -but I was a back-country skier and mountain climber, and even taught wilderness winter survival courses.  So, I've spent a lot of time in the woods, like "Red".  But, unlike him, I know how to handle myself there.  Also, another coincidental similarity, I've been a comedy writer since 1984, and making a living from it since 1989.  Oh, yes, just one more similarity, my father, like Red's (Steve's), always gave me the same advice: "Keep your stick on the ice!"

 

The only difference in our appearance, was that I always wore a long-billed "baseball cap", as opposed to Red's short-billed cap, and I never wore suspenders.  By the way, yet ANOTHER coincidental similarity is that I had "red" hair until it started turning reddish-brown during my thirties through fifties.  So, my nickname as a child was "Red", from that, and "Red Kelly" was my favourite hockey player, along with Gordie Howe.  So, while visiting my sister in Winnipeg (which I do for 2 months each year), and I'm walking around in public, I often hear "Hey Red!"  I turn around happily, expecting to see an old school friend or hockey teammate.  But, no!  Most of the time it's a stranger making a joke, thinking I'm trying to impersonate Red Green.

 

Now that I'm going into semi-retirement, maybe I can get some work as his double?  I'd be the only stunt double who is 20 years OLDER than the star!!! 😎😎😎  I wouldn't mind regular free client-paid trips to Toronto.

 

Anyway, nice to know someone on this forum appreciates "Red Green", and has some Canadian experience, other than visiting Martin Koppel! 🤣  Where and when did you live in Metro Toronto, and in Minnesota?  We used to drive down to Minnesota to warm up! 🤣

Here are a few more photos of me looking like "Red":  I'm wearing my usual baseball cap by my friend's wall where I painted Donald Duck's nephews, because he's a big fan.  Honestly, I DO mostly wear long sleeve plaid shirts when the temperature goes below 60 degrees F, or so.  But I haven't been wearing them when taking my few photos since my beard became gray.  Anyway, whenever I'm in Canada, I always wear them.

I lived in Roseville Minnesota 1991 to 2000, then on Gloucester Street, Toronto from 2000 to 2011.  I don't miss the winters at all.

I'm not surprised.  But 1990-current winters in southern Minnesota and Toronto were nothing compared to Winnipeg winters in the late 1940s and 1950s (before Global Warming!).  I'm used to 55 degrees F below zero real shade temperature, and wind chill factors of 140 below.  (that was back before we changed to Celsius). They don't build malls underground for no reason!  I know that Minneapolis' "Mall of America" is also underground.  But, I did like the fact that we had freezes for 5 to 5.5 months straight, so we could keep playing hockey on the backyard rink.  😃

Shows 1-300 can be watched on YouTube.  Very funny if you're familiar with rural Canada. 😎

I do miss the run up to Christmas in downtown Toronto with the open air ice rink in front of City Hall, but travelling through the maze of underground malls isn't fun for a vegan.  It got pretty raw in Minnesota a couple of times, my first winter there we had 44" of snow on October 14th and it was still there in places the next May.  They say there's two seasons in Minnesota, winter and July, and the state bird is the mosquito.

Lots of fast food meat kiosks???  Vegetables and fruit don't keep under ground?  I know I'm slowing going senile but, am I missing a connection here?  Beware of the underground malls, my son, they're full of bad people that will try to get you to eat meat! 😯

It's the smell and sight of meat and fish, I just don't like it.

I see.  Above ground, the meat smells dissipate into the open air, and spread quickly enough to not stay highly concentrated.  In The Netherlands, the strong sea winds blow those fish smells quickly to the east of wherever one is.

I was an Ordnance Electrical Artificer until the navy decided to split my branch in half.  One half stayed with the Weapon Engineering Department and specialised in maintaining gun mountings, torpedoes, small arms and the like, while the other half (myself included) transferred across to the Marine Engineering Department (think stokers) and looked after all the heavy electrical plant down the machinery spaces, such as motors, generators, switchboards, and a whole lot more besides.  Part of the deal was you had to get your various tickets to watch keep on all the main machinery.

Yes to Africa, China and India, no to South America, and I'm saying nothing about the Middle East.  I can see Africa most days if the sky is clear.  I just checked, I can make out the outline of the Rif mountains on the Morocco coast, though only just as it's hazy.

She went to almost every event going from 75 so it'll be from that period, it was something she did to the point of obsession, so there's a six year window encompassing scores of events. There were three of 'em, all young, all very pretty girls, most fellas remember them from WC, Mecca, Derby Assembly Rooms, Whitchurch Civic, Morecombe, Cleethorpes, Yate, Buzzard... The list goes on and on.

 

They were well travelled as I say from late 75 right up until the late 90s.
