Somewhere out there is a painting of a bunch of Canadians playing hockey on a pond during the holidays with snow on the ground and a Hawker Typhoon nearby...I think there was a Jeep in the painting too....always liked it because it combined three of my favorite things, planes, jeeps and Hockey. Canadians are cool too, I guess.
