Today's Animal

Thanks Margaret W.

Ok Ralph, so you have a new calling LOL

Shrek, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were all having lunch together. Shrek said, 'I have always thought that I'm the strongest man in the world, but how can I be sure?

'Angelina Jolie agreed. 'I'm told I'm the most gorgeous of them all, but sometimes I wonder.

'Brad Pitt said, 'I'm pretty sure I'm the sexiest man alive but I've never had it confirmed.'They all decided that the best way to find out if their beliefs were true was to ask the famed talking 'mirror, mirror on the wall' to confirm for them whether Shrek was the strongest,
Angelina Jolie was the most gorgeous and Brad Pitt was the sexiest.

They agreed to meet again the next day for lunch to discuss their findings.

The next day Shrek walked up with a smile.

'Well, it's true. The mirror told me that I am the strongest man in the world.

'Angelina Jolie perked up and said: 'And I know for sure that I'm the most gorgeous woman alive.

'But Brad Pitt lifted his sad, masculine face and asked...

'Who the hell is Ralph Bennett ?????

Thanks Ralph
Now we know for sure but Tiger is still a better golfer…LOL

A couple of weeks ago someone mentioned being at Ausable Chasm. It's been there a long time. Here is a picture of me with my Mom and Dad in July 1955.
You do great work on the blog Marty.

Finding more Ex Parkers

So it was a beautiful early autumn morning and Mavis and I and Joyce Normandeau were out browsing the neighbourhood and checking out garage sales in Peachland. Joyce was visiting from her home on Eva in Greenfield Park.
We were mulling over the goods on sale at one house, and i picked up an escargot serving dish. Joyce suggested I should buy it - and replied "sure - we aren't fancy sophisticated types like you Montreal types with your gourmet tastes and fancy manners." Upon hearing that the chap running the sale said - "hey - I'm originally from Montreal."
"Yea - what part?" I responded.
"Greenfield Park" said he.

That's how we met Richard Palczewski, who tells us that he used to live on Springfield near Royal George School - just close to Smith's store. Richard and his wife are leaving Peachland and moving to Salmon Arm. He relocated to the west in 1974.

We told him about the blog, and I have since sent him your URL. Just thought some folks might like to be updated on another former Greenfield Parker. Photo of we three former residents appended. Best as always Marty.


Thanks Gus R.

Paul Newman RIP

Guess you probably heard that Paul Newman died yesterday. He was such a heart throb so thought you would like this. Great picture.

Paul NewmanOnly women of a certain era will fully appreciate this.... (If you don't understand this, tell your mother, she'll get it!)A Michigan woman and her family were vacationing in a small New England town where Paul Newman and his family often visited.One Sunday morning, the woman got up early to take a long walk. After a brisk five-mile hike, she decided to treat herself to a double-dip chocolate ice cream cone.She hopped in the car, drove to the center of the village and went straight to the combination bakery/ice cream parlor.There was only one other patron in the store:Paul Newman, sitting at the counter having a doughnut and coffee.The woman's heart skipped a beat as her eyes made contact with those famous baby-blue eyes.The actor nodded graciously, and the star-struck woman smiled demurely.Pull yourself together! She chides herself. You're a happily married woman with three children, you're forty-five years old, not a teenager!The clerk filled her order and she took the double-dip chocolate ice cream cone in one hand and her change in the other. Then she went out the door, avoiding even a glance in Paul Newman's direction.When she reached her car, she realized that she had a handful of change, but her other hand was empty.Where's my ice cream cone? Did I leave it in the store? Back into the shop she went, expecting to see the cone still in the clerk's hand or in a holder on the counter or something!

No ice cream cone was in sight.
With that, she happened to look over at Paul Newman. His face broke into his familiar, warm, friendly grin and he said to the woman, 'You put it in your purse.'

Thanks Gus R.

Thanks John P.

Hi Marty,

Today's pic is David Burnett, oldest of Sandy, Debbie and Janice. Janice still lives in Greenfield Park, but don't know her married name. The Burnetts lived on Chambly, just behind the Gladstone branch of Bank of Montreal, now Brossard Bagel, whose bagels come very close to St. Viateur and Fairmont and as their ad on CJAD says "you don't even have to cross a bridge". And they carry Jamaican hot pies, mahn!
