I REMEMBER

I remember travelling down on the train from Justice to Ingelow in the cold early winter Monday mornings.

I remember Alex Fraser meeting me and having bacon and eggs at Frasers and then a van ride in Gowan''s van.

I remember Mac arriving one weekend with his buffalo coat, his prize horses'' sleigh bells, and we had a big weekend at the rink.

I remember Mac snowshoeing in from No. 1 Highway and Phyllis Watton and me meeting him.

I remember skating doubles in a race - lona Chisholm and I had dressed as Miss Canada and Miss America - tights underneath paper costumes - the couple fell in front of us and my costume ripped, Bay Dennis came running over with a safety pin.
