Original Memory Interview Question

What growing up "firsts" did your parents tell you about? Was there some kind of story surrounding your first time you walked or first time you said "mom" and "dad"?


His Response:

I was a large baby that is a L-O-N-G one 22 1/2 in. long at birth so when I did start to walk some people thought I was well passed the age that I should have been to start walking. My Mother had to explain to them that I was not really that old at the time and they were amazed at my size. As for speaking it was a day when we were to go to see Gran and my Mother was making ready my stroller for the trip when all of a sudden she heard this little voice say " walk off now" and she turned to see me smiling at her and there was nobody else in the room at the time. It seemed I had gotten the saying from my Dad since he had been in the Army and had also coached sports it was one of his favorite expressions to say "Walk it off now" whenever somebody complained of any injuries or discomfiture.

Original Memory Interview Question

What parts of the world and where did you live when you were a child? Was it the ghetto? Or was it luxurious and pampered? Look back on it and ask yourself how that influenced your life today.


His Response:

Well because I lived in Canada I would like to say I did not have to worry about Ghettos but then...you can believe that if you want to. Canada has had its share of 'other side of the track' citizens and my own life was influenced some how by the people that perpetrated the exclusion of others in our little 'cliques' because of their status either financially or ethnically. I was always going against their wishes and associating with those 'undesirables' whenever I could; whether they be from a subsidized housing project commonly known as 'the projects' or just the wrong place in town. Unlike America we had the integration debacle well handled (or so we thought) within our public school system at an early stage of our countries history. So yes! I was influenced by that.

Original Memory Interview Question

When you were a kid, what places did you travel? If you did not travel extensively, think of times where you traveled within your own neighborhood and outskirts. What can you remember from any of these mini journeys? Also, who joined you in your travels?


His Response:

Well I was not all that young but when I was about fifteen or Sixteen I traveled Europe with my Dad who wanted me to see where he was stationed during the war (WWII) and so it was a trip to all those places England, France, Germany, Italy, and some of the Baltic States of the Soviet Union (U.S.S.R.) and especially in Rome and the Island of Sicily.

Original Memory Interview Question

What was your neighborhood like in your early life. Who were some of your first friends in your neighborhood and was was the overall community and atmosphere like?


His Response:

We had a select group of friends that got together every day after school to play 'street hockey' or some other games before the dinner hour and either continued after dinner or started a new game of 'Hide n Seek or something other until we were called in for bed. On the weekends we set up tournament Hockey games against kids from the other surrounding streets. We had names picked out for our teams reflecting the streets we lived on 'like Riverdale Rats, Danforth Dragons,Poucher Pirates etc, and the Adults thought we were arranging Gang meetings and had us gather in the public park where we could be supervised by them. I and my best friend Steve would lead the interviews for hockey hopefuls every weekend and his father would arrange the practice road/ice time for us at his work in their parking lot as he was a fireman and the space was always available unless a call for the firetruck came through in which case we had to clear the area for it to depart the station. . . .
