Victoria Dairy




HELLO MARSTON,
SINCE THAT GUESS THE PLACE CONTEST AND I WAS A CO-WINNER "WOW".
TODAY I HAVE BEEN HAVING GUILT COMPUNCTIONS ABOUT THE CONTEST AND WILL HAVE TO DISQUALIFY MYSELF. I DIDN'T HAVE INSIDER INFORMATION, WHAT I HAD WAS OTHERSIDE OF THE FENCE INFORMATION, LET ME EXPLAIN MYSELF SO I CAN CLEAR MY CONCIENCE. IF YOU WOULD SHOW THE PICTURE OF THE MILK TRUCKS WITH THE VICTORIA DAIRY SIGN AGAIN, I WILL COME CLEAN.


WHEN OUR MOTHER DIED, STEVIE AND I WENT TO LIVE AT OUR GRANDMOTHER'S HER PLACE WAS SURROUNDED ON 3 SIDES BY THE VICTORIA DAIRY. IMAGINE AT THE TIME 1962, SHE WAS 68 YRS. OLD AND TO TAKE US ON UNDER HERWING, WE THOUGHT WE HAD IT MADE IN THE SHADE AS SHE WOULD BE A PUSHOVER FOR US. WE LOST THAT BATTLE RIGHT FROM THE START,WE HAD TO LEARN A NEW WAY OF LIFE.

FIRST SHE RAN ON CHICKEN HOURS, UP AT OR BEFORE DAWN, EARS OPEN AND YAP SHUT, NEXT YOU HAD TO DO STUFF FOR HER ALL THE TIME, HUMP HORSE SHYT FROM THE DAIRY FOR HER HOT BEDS, WATER THE GREENHOUSE, CUT SCRAP WOOD FOR HER HOT WATER JACKET HEATER, DIG, LOTS OF DIGGING, MORE DIGGING, AD NAUSEUM.

HIT THE FART SACK AT SUNDOWN THE ONLY THING THAT MADE HER SMILE WAS WE CAME ARMED WITH A .22 RIFLE AND SHOTGUN. GRANNY BOUGHT ALL THE BULLETS & SHELLS WE COULD BLAST. SHE HAD PROBLEMS WITH GROUNDHOGS, SQUIRRELS,

PLUS STARLINGS-WHICH SHE SAID SPIT ON HER CLOTHES LINE.IN THE PICTURE TO THE LEFT OF THE SIGN THAT BIG TREE WAS WHERE THE STARLINGS HAD TO BE SENT PACKING FROM. THE BIG INCINERATOR CHIMINEY, HAD 4 LIGHTNING RODS WHICH HAD TO BE SHOT AT OFTEN SO WE COULD HEAR THE RICOCHET, A SORT OF MUSIC TO OUR DERANGED EARS.THE DAIRY BILLBOARD SIGN HAD A WALKWAY BEHIND, WHICH WAS USED BY MY BROTHER & I WHENEVER THERE WAS THE NEED TO DISPATCH ROTTEN APPLES, TOMATOES, ANYTHING JUST ABOUT THAT WAS HEAVABLE.

THE SIGN WAS ABOUT 50FT.FROM VICTORIA, THERE WAS A CONTINOUS STREAM OF MOVING TARGETS.WE GOT AWAY WITH THE SHOOTING THE GUNS AS THERE WAS A CONSTANT DIN FROM THE DAIRY.THE HORSES WENT THE SAME YEAR WE GOT THERE AS ST. LAMBERTS PASSED A BYLAW AGAINST LIVESTOCK IN THE CITY LIMITS,THIS DIDN'T MEAN ANTHING TO GRANNY. SHE HAD A DIRTY LITTLE SECRET,

WHICH WERE HER CHICKENS, SHE KEPT THEM UP UNTIL 1972. IMAGINE IF ST. LAMBERTS ONLY KNEW, OUTLAW FOWL.
THIS CONFESSION AND PULLING MYSELF FROM THE CONTEST CLEARS THE AIR AND EVERYBODY WILL SEE YOU ARE RUNNING A FAIR SITE, ALSO I AM WEANED FROM
CHOCOLATE MILK.
