I guessed that one with my "shotgun" answer but did not get a yea so if the correct answer has not been guess, do we have permission to go to the Mountain for advice?

Go Riders !!! :lol: I'm glad to hear the CFL is alive and well. I thought I remember the league folding or was that another league up there or perhaps oldtimers setting in! :oops:

the CFL had a couple teams fold. (Montreal and Ottawa). the league is still going strong and the fans are staunch supporters of their teams.

there was the WHL hockey league that folded, about twenty years ago......... they never really had a chance against the coverage that the NHL gets.

RG got the right answer :D

The machine was used on buses.

Very first guess and he couldn't just come out and say your right. He wanted to see our imaginations at work ! I'm glad I didn't go to the Mountain to seek the wisdom of the tribal elders ! LOL

I used to ride the buses a lot in Honolulu back in the early 70s..they still had/used those over there,but they had a smaller drop lever..50 cents to go anywhere on the island or around it.... :mrgreen:
