Sweet Side Story: One day early in the month as I was messing about in the garage with the door open a big suburban full of blond 20 something, highly energetic young adults stopped in front of the house. The suit and well dressed family type jumped out and ran on to my lawn saying they were going to take a picture of my house. Obviously I was caught off guard and settled everything down in order to get the full story, which turned out to be awesome. It seems the band of blondies were the grandkids to the first owners of my house back in 1958 (The bought it for $13,000 CAD!). They were at the funeral of the grandmother earlier in the day and decided to check out the place it all began. What a special house and thanks to the Ollinger family for sharing this moment and story with me. Some photos from back in the day. BTW, apparently their parents know "Reg" a pillar of my community who's been here since at least 1958!
