I Worked at The Ex in '89, '90 and '91

CNEThe Canadian National Exhibition opens next week. Of the 131 years of The Ex's existence, I worked a game booth across from The Polar Express every day it was open for three of 'em: 1989, 1990 and 1991.

If you want to revisit my many CNE memories, visit my CNE page where I've shared several stories from my very first job.

Here are some of the highlights:

If you read nothing else in my 9202 entry archive, read those CNE entries. Trust me, you'll never look at a carnie the same way again.

I recently discovered some old pictures in a shoe box while cleaning my basement and I've uncovered what is likely the only picture of me working that game booth at The Ex. The lack of Bart Simpson dolls tell me this is likely the summer of 1989.

I really think I remember seeing you! When I first saw a pic of you,(one of the pod-cast things)I had the thought of, "hey I've seen him before" or, "look a heck of a lot like someone I've seen before".
