 Hello Marston,

 

Normand's pictures of the Artists at work painting was around about circa 1970-1975.  Yvon Provost - I may have met, I don't recall him but that other guy A,A,A,Al,Al,Alba,Alba, Sonny Cook, well we were the best of friends all through school - on G.P.A.A. hockey and softball teams, cubs, scouts.  Sonny was very good with the guitar.  He also gave lessons, just like his next door neighbor Mrs. Jenkins did on piano.  Sonny had a list as long as your arm of types of jobs he did.  I remember him as an apprentice electrician for a GPK. company and also a lumber baron in the townships.  He had bought some land near Cowansville, built a house using a small chainsaw to do all the cuts, set up a small sawmill, kept a few chickens and did painting on the side.  He even had time to marry a girl from Cowansville and had a little daughter with her.

 

GGGGGood Bye, Adios,

Richard..........
