View Full Version : Do you know this man?

My husbands friend stays in Canada,his name is Bob Montgomery,do any of you know him?

05-02-2001, 03:03 PM
Please, by no means think this is rude, but Canada is a LARGE country and there are many places where this person can be. Do you have an area in the country? Also, Bob is a very popular name as well as Montgomery. You will probably not have any luck locating this person. Sorry.

Does your husband's friend work for a circus? I knew a guy named Bob that worked for a regional circus once. It might be the same person although I don't remember his last name.

ChisJo, is Canada really that big? When I was at EPCOT, it seemed about the same size as the other countries. And other than that round theater, there didn't seem to be that many people there.

Dixie...are you for real?? I mean would you be able to find someone I know in the UK if I said his name was Eric Clarke? Im not trying to be rude, Im just wondering if this is some sort of joke? Also, Canada is huge (bigger in area than the USA).

05-02-2001, 11:49 PM
LOL.. I'm sorry, but I just had to laugh when I read this. ;)

05-03-2001, 03:52 AM
This has got to be a JOKE...

It takes me 13 hours to drive to the East cost to visit my familly and that's not even half of the distance from one end of the Country to another...


This has to be a joke...

He lives in a town and it snows quite a lot there.I thought every-one would know him.Try not to get upset,I only asked a question.

05-03-2001, 10:00 AM
He has a polar bear for a pet, and lives in the third iglo up from us. Really, really nice man.....

Sorry, I couldn't resist!! LOL

I met a Robert Montgomery at a convention in Toronto a few years back. Think it may be your Bob?

05-03-2001, 10:34 AM
DixieAmos - you do have the most intersesting questions!

05-03-2001, 11:15 AM
Where in Canada does your husbands friend live? Is he originally from England residing in Canada? Maybe if we all put our heads together we can find him!

05-03-2001, 11:51 AM
LOL I have a hard time believing this! Sorry if you are "really asking"but this seems verrrrrrrrry strange to me. Your other posts have been very "different" too. Hope someone helps you out.:confused: :jester:

05-03-2001, 12:49 PM

I'm on lunch break, and just took a few minutes to look up all YOUR posts. Oh my gosh!!!!! Too funny - but I have such a hard time taking it seriously. Can't, actually. Now if you were born incredibly rich, and never had exposure to the same world most of us know...ok...maybe. But surely a sausage stuffer has some concept of how things work out here in "the world" (Disney OR the regular folks regular one - you seem to have working knowledge of neither!)

Are we on "Candid Discussion Boards" here?

05-03-2001, 02:31 PM
I can't believe that no one has posted this so far, so I will. Although it was intended as a tongue-in-cheek jab at Americans less-than-sparkling knowledge of Canada, I think it applies equally well to less-than-sparking Brits! :jester:

"And I don't know Jimmy, Sally, or Suzy (or Bob) from Canada, although I'm certain they're really, really nice."

Bea he does not live in an igloo and he has a dog for a pet. It is a poodle if that`s any help. His wife is called Mary.

05-03-2001, 06:18 PM
Hello again Veronica! :D

You've been very busy lately. Let me see, his name is Bob, his wife's name is Mary, he has a poodle for a pet, and doesn't live in an igloo. Yes, I think I do know the guy, and if you keep waving that plastic around, I might tell you where to find him. Unless you mean that the poodles's wife's name is Mary, then I can't help you.

AZJazzyJ, still looking for Bobo, are you? :p

05-03-2001, 06:24 PM
Dixie....I used to have this pen pal in England when I was a kid...her name was Daisy Sagle and she had a cat and a dog for pets, she lived in a pretty big house (I saw the picture) Do you know her???

Sorry..couldn't resist :p

If you are really truely trying to find this person, you might want to try Canada 411. It is a web site that has all the people listed in the phone book. Of course you will need to know at least a province. Hope you can find him.

Have you ever been to Canada????

05-03-2001, 06:53 PM
Here are some facts to consider about our fair country:

We are the worlds second largest country in the world at 9,970,610 square kilometre's.

We have a population of over 31 million people.

There are 10 provinces and 3 territories.

The country spans 6 time zones.

There are 2 million lakes covering 7.6% of Canada.

There are over 1000 provincial parks.

Please do not be offended by any of the comments in this thread.We Canadians just get frustrated by the lack of knowledge of our beautiful country.By the sheer size of our land,you can see how extremely difficult it would be to know Bob,his wife and his poodle.There are people on this board that apparently live about 5 minutes from me and I dont know them.;)

05-03-2001, 09:39 PM
Darn, the Bob Montgomery that I know has a wife named Mary Lou. I guess it is a different Bob Montgomery. :earseek:

The mysterious and intriguing Dixie!

It seems we may have our own Dame Edna on the DIS Boards. This question about Bob, and many more like them on the various sites seemed to have spawned some interesting threads Dixie. If indeed Dame Dixie you are intent in infusing our boards with some tongue in cheek humour, in some part you have succeeded. I particularly liked the private monorail and nanny inquiry. I do hope everyone spending time responding, in good faith, to your inquiries are doing so understanding the nature of the interesting inquiries.

To appreciate the rawther interesting range of Dixie's Quirky Questions, hit the new feature which calls up all of Dixie's posts. Read them and appreciate the spirit in which these posts are postted. I giggled at many.

Dixie, to assist in your search, I will kindly rent a Moose at our local Moose Ranch, paint a sign on its hide: "Do You Know Bob", and set it free amidst the blowing snow.

Thanks, Dave. I've just had a few giggles myself. My first thought was that D ixieA mos was DAN ! or maybe his sister ;) LOL :earsgirl:

05-03-2001, 11:17 PM
Hi, it's me Bob....I hear someone is looking for me.

05-04-2001, 09:55 AM
Oh Dave you are so helpful.Would you not need to use a Saint Bernard or something a little larger than a mouse?

05-04-2001, 09:58 AM
For being so helpful Dave I have added you to my buddy list

05-04-2001, 10:05 AM
No I'm Bob !

dixie - I have been searching for you and your family for years, I thought I had lost you. As you can see I have had a sex change and have moved to England ! I am also, like you a really big liar !

Bob !

05-04-2001, 10:57 AM
ROTFLOL, Sally......hey Dixie, eaten any vegetable marrows lately? We're waiting for your gardener on the COM POST thread!

05-04-2001, 11:38 AM
There are 30 million Canadian citizens scattered across an area over 100 times the size of the UK. I'm sure at least a dozen of them go by that name.

If you're not joking, why not try looking him up in one of the online phone directories.


05-04-2001, 01:00 PM
sallybrealey ~ you lie! I am BOB! LOL!

05-04-2001, 02:24 PM
LOL Would the "real" Bob please stand up!!!!:bounce: :pinkbounc :confused: ;)

05-04-2001, 03:01 PM
and you sure miss a lot! LOL Thanks for the chuckle everyone!:cool:

05-04-2001, 07:44 PM
YES! I know Bob. However he is no longer in Canada. He rolled up one too many rims at Tims and was sent south. In fact, my butlers' nanny's driver said that there was a rumour that he went to a preview of Honey I Shrunk the Audience and never was heard from again. Poor chap. Mary and the poodle's whereabouts are unknown. :eek:

05-05-2001, 11:30 AM
You will never guess what has happened. I was telling Cuthbert that the nice Canada persons are looking for Bob. He turned and said to me,"Veronica dear who is Bob ?"
It turns out his friend is called Brian Montgomery.His wife is called Mary and the little poodle is Bob. How silly of me.

05-05-2001, 01:42 PM
Well, now we are getting somewhere....Brain Montgomery I know, why he lives right down the street. I'll tell him you are looking for him :p

05-06-2001, 01:59 PM

I have a friend by the name of Brian Montgomery. Indeed, he graduated with his Master's about a year or so ago! LOL! :)

05-08-2001, 03:26 PM
Kevin dear tell him Cuthbert and Veronica say hello!

05-08-2001, 03:54 PM
What about "BOB"?

:p :p :p
