Barney and Buffy are winners!
Barney Williams had the words "Imagine"
on this shirt as he won gold for Canada in the 4 man Rowing
Team at the World Championship in Italy. Buffy, his wife
was on the Woman's Rowing Team and her boat won as well.
Recently they both won gold in a Regatta in Boston. Imagine
a husband and wife with such talent! Buffy won bronze for
Canada at Sydney olympics. Barney won for Canada at the
Oympics in Greece. Go team go!
When the book of Dodoland was written years ago Barney was
Della's imaginary brother in the story. Barney's family moved
to British Columbia and call Victoria and Saltspring Island home. Barney calls Saltspring home. Home is where
the heart is.
