Pete VanderLaan is on a distinguished road
As a fourteen year old boy, I took my grandfather to the fiftieth stampede. He had attended the first one. I loved the chuckwagon races. My grandfather sat on the porch of an old friends house and they argued about protestants and catholics for the entire two weeks. I'm half Irish. The family is in Port Stewart on the north sea. I rode with my grandfather across the giants causeway for four days on horseback. They are wonderful memories.
