738 York Street

Mother owned this home and she lost it which she told Rose and me. I was born at 415 Woodrow Avenue with the help of my father and oldest brother. She also bought 135 Renida Street. This house was bought by the father of her oldest four children after her death. In talking to my brother Richard at the 2011 reunion he says Mother owned Woodrow, then York, then Renida. I always thought she owned Woodrow just before Renida and would love to know if I lived in the York Street home like he says.

Canada Geese Honk in Flight

Ever since seeing thousands of Canada Geese in Toronto near Lake Ontario I have loved hearing the geese honk in flight and will run to a window or outside to see and hear them. Adam was on the back of my borrowed bicycle and 22 months old.

The National Parks: America's Best Idea

It doesn't get much better than this. Now I need to write up a list of all I've visited since I was nine years old on a cross-country road trip to Ontario, Canada, with Mother and Rosella, a second trip to all 48 states with them, and a trip back east to Virginia for Kaarlyn and George's wedding with Rose, Jade and Patty. In looking through the list I can positively say I've visited 25 and maybe more that I can't recall. Anyone 62 can buy a lifetime pass for $10.00. This will get three guests in or a carload to any national site or park.
