  • My Father the Car

    Got my copy in the mail today. I just finished the book I was reading and was wanting another. Great timing.

    Thanks Stu [8D]

    Got mine today, too.

    I'm already having fun (up to page 35 before dinner, looking forward to more tonight) learning all about your background, Stu.

    What a varied set of experiences! You were always acquiring knowledge with a forward leaning mind, building your own future in the process.
    It also made me reflect on some simularities as to how I got to be a marketing director at NCR.

    I'm glad I suscribed early, although I admit I was getting weary about the wait.

    Thanks, Stu.

          I received my copy on Friday, 11/6 (even with an incorrect Zip Code.
          I haven't read any of the book yet, but it appears to be a nice book with more pictures than I expected.

            Well, being on the north side of the 49th parallel, I'm sure mine won't arrive for a couple of weeks as the Customs folks like to hold packages for about that much time and send you a big bill for "handling" as well as collect the 5% GST. [xx(]

            Not that I'm bitter or anything... [}]

              Take heart, Mark. Stu seems to have mailed them from Burlington, Ontario.

              Got mine the other day and devoured it already. You have something to look forward to SOON. It's a good read! I enjoyed it a lot.

                    Interesting... I got an e-mail from a woman down in Indiana who was letting me know (a couple of weeks ago) that my book was being mailed shortly. We'll see what happens.

                        I only mailed copies to Ontario addresses outside the greater Hamilton area as part of my arrangement with the publisher. Everywhere else in Canada, the U.S. and the world are being mailed by the publisher. Thanks to everyone who has commented and for your fantastic support.

                          I got mine yesterday & just finished reading it now. In a style that makes one feel as if Stu himself is in your living room in front of the fireplace telling you his story & how everything has had an effect on not only his life, but thousands of others. So many pictures too that have never (to my knoledge) been published before. A true treasure for us all. Thank you so much Stu!
