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 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.

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.
