3 W's response from "The Boonies"

Hi Uncle Bob

Married in 1970 to Odette. Lived across the street from POP's for a year.

Went to school in St-Lambert (Elementary + CCHS). Used Grandfather's address in St-Lambert to get in. Didn't help. Still flunked .

Many trips from Ville Lemoyne to the Swinwood's when I was young. 2 father's (Derek + Alfie ) = molson fans.

Skate in the woods to the Park.

Many memories about the Shore as my Son and his friends call it today.

2 Kids = Kevin 32. Josée = 36 . 2 Grandkids. Olivia and Eric.

Life is good.


Thanks nephew.... I guess it's a family trait to wear out ones welcome in a town.... I wouldn't worry about failing at St. Lambert Elementary.... I had Miss Sheppard in grade 7.... she finally passed me after driving me home in her little red MGA ... as for CCHS I was only there for a few hours when my parents informed me we had to move.... at least they let me know.... thats when we moved to the barracks on Campbell.... where I was adopted by Royal George as the mascot for failure..... and the rest is history
