I left Cambridge mostly because I didn't like living there.... it's nothing like Hamilton. I used to live in Preston, near the roller rink. I still work there because I like my job there. Starting in September, I'll just be there three times a week.

I'm living in my Grandmother's house now, and the rent is ideal. ^_-

You just copy and paste the first post (Squirt's post) to a new reply post, then wipe her answers and put in your own. Thanks to Gary for getting it going again.
If you need more than that, let me know.

The time being off is a server issue, next time TC is in I will get him to change that. He fixed it a few months ago, but it went off agian a short time later.

My memories!! The amazing ice banks, the stinky rotting perch I stomped on on my way home from school one hot summer day, the sand, the girls, the restaurant across from Bell Cairn School, smelt fishing!!!!, hanging from the canal bridge as it went up to let a tanker through then dropping off into the huge waves it caused, Friday night dances in the Bell Cairn School gym, running the kiddie rides at the canal amusement park and getting on the swing cages for free, bowling at the canal lanes, playing bass guitar with Roy Birdie, Allen Doucette and Ted Fennell in the garage, my parent's house on the lake side, hopping the train down to the canal, my best friend Ted Fennell. Elizabeth (Bella)... such a beautiful girl!
I loved, and still love The Beach.

Hey Scotto ... there are a couple people here with that same basic name,
so I'm not sure exactly who you are ... but I suspect our mothers were
good buddies, and that we "kids" hung out back in the day ... oui?
Of course ... my identity is a dead giveaway, between what I added to this
thread and my ID :)
