While I enjoy a good joke or humorous anecdote as well as the next guy, I would like to read a thread now and then that has not been twisted to include the P word. My preference, and we are all entitled to our preferences, would be an emphasis on good trailer talk and problem solving. I'm not in any way suggesting eliminating the good natured fun, but as I stated in my previous post, the poutine thing is a dead horse that continues to be beaten. It just isn't funny any more and a few members, again my opinion, have been slow to recognize that. And please understand, it is not my intention to offend anyone with my opinions. Obviously, when we are sitting around a campfire we can clarify our statements immediately when someone takes umbrage. But I doubt there is a single member here that has at one time or another written a post where the intent was misinterpreted by someone else.
Best approach is to just ignore talk of poutine and it will eventually die out and go away. Ranting on about it only stirs things up again and delays its inevitable death. IMHO.

I'm with you Carl, it's getting really old. The fine line between being witty and being annoying has been crossed but not everyone gets that social cue.

We have just Booked!!!!

Last week we arranged to meet our new grandson and his parents from Calgary in the North Okanogan on May 31st for a fly fishing trip.
Realizing the N'Kmip Escape Rally was the same weekend and that were leaving on the 28th we decided to attend the Rally in Osoyoos. Love the deck of the N'Kmip winery on the same property.
We are Gerry & Verna Warren from Sidney BC and our Burmese cat "Papineau" Also attending will be our well traveled 2006 Escape 17B. Look for the green canoe.

I guess, until one tries it, one should not prematurely rule out of.
