2012-03-07 “When I Was A Little Boy”



In the spring of 1960 when I was four years old, the dirt roads were more dirt than gravel.  Sometimes the spring thaw made it too difficult to drive a car down the road.  This is a picture of my mother bringing us home from Sunday School.  I doubt that we would have take the tractor all the way into town but probably as far as the paved  road where someone would have picked us up and given us a ride.  My mother always said “where there’s a will, there’s a way” and she was right.  Much of who I am today was shaped by my parents.  They instilled values in us to be kind, honest and respectful.  They taught us the value of hard work.  I think we all made them proud.

On a community note, the Blenheim Community Funeral Home is sponsoring Free Skating in both Ridgetown and Blenheim…next Sunday March 11th we are sponsoring a free skate at the Blenheim Memorial Arena from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. and the following Sunday March 18th we are sponsoring a free skate at the East Kent Memorial Arena in Ridgetown from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.   Hope to see you there!
