Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge Week 22 Group

This goes back a ways… Probably 37-38 years…  I was working for John V. Carr & Son, Custom House Broker at the border of Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario, Canada. It was our job to process the paperwork for freight that was entering or exiting the country.  As the truck drivers were not expected to have the, sometimes, thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars of DUTY required for importation of the goods they brought in their trucks, our firm would promise to cover it and the shippers or consignees would pay us back, plus our fees.   LOVED that job and LOVED my co-workers. This is part of the day shift (we were a 24/7 operation).

I am the redhead, down front, next to our boss, Dianne.  It was HER birthday, hence the bottle of booze in Mike’s hand.  It’s funny, because all three of the women (me, Dianne and Melanie) actually lived within a mile of each other but didn’t know each other until we started working there. Anyway, here is our motley crew for the GROUP PHOTO CHALLENGE!
