Memories

Not a creature was stirring…

Originally published on December 24, 2012 It was the morning of Christmas Eve and once again it didn’t feel like Christmas.  It had been years since I last celebrated Christmas – but I remember it well.  It was in 1983 at my Mom & Dad’s place in Midland, Ontario.  My family always got together to […]

Eleven Oh One

Originally published on November 11, 2012 It must have caused quite a commotion when he arrived in this world.  Come to think of it,  I’ve never heard of it before (or since) – being born with different colored eyes.  But it’s true – although I never saw them myself – his wife told me about them.  She also told […]

He has had the support of […]
