Just Wonderful Reflections !
Good Evening Everyone !
Sometimes I reflect in the past, and think of all the wonderful times spent in School, I did not like it too much back then, but we really had it good ! If only we could go back just for a little while ? No headaches, fancy free days, the homework load was not as heavy as it is today ! I see it with my daughter, we hardly had any compared to today and she is graduating this year Oie Vey !
Verdun was really a fantastic place to grow up in the sixties, and seventies, it will always hold a wonderful warm spot in my heart, and memory banks as I am sure it does to a lot of Past Verdunites and still present!
I am sure I am not the only one out there that is for sure. I can still smell the hallways, and classrooms still to this day of Banantyne School, the Verdun Annexe, and last but not least Verdun High School !
I at least go to Verdun every second week, and walk around from Ethel Street ( Where my Grandmother use to live, at 3586 Ethel ) right up to the end of Wellington, and then on other occasions , I do Verdun Avenue , or Banantyne, or walk down Champlain )
I myself use to live at 3971 Lesage Street , and you can see all the changes as the years go by, the next generation will see something else.
It really does feel good to walk, and look around and reflect back !
Great Memories to hold in our hearts till we grow cold ! Awww, what can I say ???
