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. . . .

From (Early Life)
Original Memory Interview Question

How do you think your life growing up was different than what goes on today in a child's life?


His Response:

Children today are 'spoiled brats' direct quote from my Mother.

Well I would say this much, there are some kids who have been given everything and had to earn nothing and that is why they do not like it when they find out to make a living as an Adult they have to actually work. As a child I was given a small allowance from my Dad but as I got older I had to do chores or I didn't get the allowance at all. As I got older I started working part time after school to make extra money to help out the family as my father had lost his job and we were not poor but we were struggling to keep the bills paid monthly. Every time I was given my allowance I was told I had to give back some to my favorite charity and some to the church poor box ans some I had to save then the rest I could spend. Kids today do not get that same sense of responsibility as we did because they are given too many options for everything it is a 'Multiple Choice' life for them we were given less choices.

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..
