........Memories.... does anyone remember Miss Swan from Queen Mary St. school.
and Mrs. Burgess, they were my favourites in the fifties, I loved xmas at
school, when we did a play, and went to church St Francis s its still there, so
is the school, I remember a Sandra Findlay, Ronnie Ralston, he was greetin'
first day at school. the Hamilton sisters, toerags the two of them caused mayhem
at school. and a distant cousin Janet Garth who came for a short time to our
school from America, god she got treated like royalty, because of her accent and
fancy clothes, she was so popular. that seems like a different world now, I
passed the playground recently, thinking of the slides we made in the snow, and
playing doublers against the wall, and in the shed when it was lashing, wish I
could go back for one day. I visited it one time about ten years ago, and remembered
the door stops on all the class doors, loved playing with them. oh the memories.
