Original Memory Interview Question

Did your parents have any interesting stories to tell about the day you were born?


His Response:

YES! as a matter of fact. My mother told me about her labor and that I was not a difficult birth but even so ...my memories were of a different situation. So I entered a program called "Primal Therapy" where you are brought back in your life by Hypnosis and relive certain stages of your childhood. They use this for a lot of different reasons from recollections of child abuse to investigating "Past Life" regression. In my particular case it was to find out how my birth was from my fetal perspective and as it turned out...I had a hard time before the delivery because (and it was confirmed by the Hospital staff) that the cord was wrapped around my neck prior to delivery but it was not for long and the Doctor said it unwrapped itself somehow just before I was delivered and he was surprised that it did. My Mother does not remember any difficulties with my birth but I at my infancy seemed to remember much more about it than was publicly known.

From (Growing up Through Elementary School)
Original Memory Interview Question

What was your first memory?


His Response:

I remember the Ravine where when I was about 2-3 yrs old my Older siblings would play and I had to stay behind a gate, But when I finally got my chance... My parents were upset at the older sibs for not paying attention to me MORE and they were grounded for the next few days. I on the other hand, was taken to a safe park every day for the next week (it was their punishment) and they resented taking me there. Later that year we were to move to a new house and one of my sibs got an idea to run off to the ravine just as the moving truck was arriving and we spent a whole hour searching for Him until a neighbour suggested we look there
and sure enough...there he was playing on an old tire swing having a great time when all of a sudden my Dad snuck up on him and dragged him home by the ear. We all said goodbye to the old house but I was not comfortable with that so my DAD made a special arrangement for me to come back once again to the old neighborhood. . . . Read More..

From (Early Life)
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. . . .

Original Memory Interview Question

What types of family traditions did you experience at a very early age?


His Response:

We had a tradition of monthly family gatherings hosted at different relatives houses each month unless it was a month that also held a major holiday like Christmas or Easter and in that case it was usually held by my grandmother at her home. We were a very matriarchal family run by the female members of the family like my Grandmother, or an Aunt, or my Mother.

From (Early Life)
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.
