I really enjoyed seeing my old home on the blog the other day. It was formally Norm Burnett's on Evelyn. Mom & Dad, Richie and Ethel Teague, my brother and I moved there May 1959. The Forbes house looked familiar too.
Richard Parker, who we've heard from on the blog, with his sisters Barbara and Claudia lived right across the street from us, next to the Forbes. Gil Jenkins and his family lived on the other side of the Parkers. The Chapman family lived across from the Forbes, right next to us. I remember Deidre living there when we moved in, don't remember Beryl, but do remember Edward and his family visiting off and on. We also had Roslyn Ryder a future teacher at Royal George at the end of the street as well. Who know, maybe we'll see those houses on the blog in future postings.
Lots of fun growing up on that street and playing right on the street as well. Not too much traffic since it wasn't a thru street. We had our own little "baseball diamond" on it. The manhole cover was home plate, the fire hydrant in front of the Forbes' was first base and whoever had a spare t-shirt or jacket or whatever, was used for 2nd and 3rd bases. No adult interference in those days!! Can even remember Neil Forbes teaching us "little kids" how to play touch football.
Great site, keep up the good work and hope more Parkers come out of the shadows.
Thanks for the kind words and memories. Those were truly fun days.
