My best memory was the old motorcycle track out on Sturgeon Rd. (Grace Hospital site). Fishing off the old wood bridge on School Rd. Watching the planes takeoff from Stevenson's Field, you could almost count the rivets on the belly. The little store on Saskatchewan (west of Sturgeon) that was cut into the mud, kept their drinks on ice and if you took a big gulp, 'instant brain freeze'. Old Chip stand on Ness by Berry, two bits for a big bag. Taking the street car to the 'end of the line' at Silver Heights. Going to the old A&W with car hops out in Kirkfield Park next to the old Motel. Riding the 'Monkey Hills' along the Assiniboine River in City Park and the ones at Oman's Creek.

Damn, sure kicking the cobwebs today!
Holy, you must have seen it all! I'm only 18
