Ronan's report

Friday 9th April, 2010

Just wanted to introduce you to the inventor of the “Undertaker” and one of my fly fishing and fly tying mentors, the only other one I have is my Grandfather Raymond Paul Fairweather , who is also passed on, glad I had my GF and had met Warren and got to spend so much time in his shop. I never realized just how famous this smiling man in this little crowded shop was, he was just a guy who tied frigging neat flys and had things in the shop that I could only dream of. A trout fisherman like me at that age, well I knew it all my GF had taught me everything I needed to know… Man what the hell did I know!! Grampy laughed at me when I told him many years later. He said an old standard – you can learn how to fish in a day and never stop learning after that! .

I have the books that Warren autographed for me, and to me they are very valuable, I have been looking for a way to introduce you all to him, I think some of you may already be more familiar with his work then I am, have a look and enjoy, The Highness of Hairwing . I have to finish my last 6 Undertakers for the SSTSHMS. .

Warren was a true “Wicker” and would laugh his butt off at this one; I did modify it to be Province appropriate.
A New Brunswicker walked into a bank in Toronto and asked for the loans officer. He told the loans officer that he was going to New Brunswick on business for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000, however he was not a depositor of the bank. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Wicker handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The Wicker produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest. .

Later, the bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Wicker for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's underground garage and parked it. Two weeks later, the Wicker returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest of $23.07. The loan officer said, 'Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?' .

The Wicker replied: 'Where else in Toronto can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?' .

Ah, Herring Choker’s..... See! Salt air is good for the brain.
