This is the boat that my father came to Canada on in 1954

I was born on September 18th 1960 in Milton Ontario

My parents Manfred & Irma came to Canada from Germany in 1954 with my 1 year old Sister Regina.  My Father came to Canada with just the clothes on his back but was able to slowly work  a number of jobs to support my family including working as a plumber, running a radiator repair shop and driving dump truck.

Oh Dear! or is that Deer? that is me in the red sweater shorts and leggings!

You see!, We do live in igloos up here in Canada lol

But when the snow Melts we had to build a house out of sticks, hope the Big bad wolf does not blow it down (me with the wood in hand)

My sister and I with some dude called Frosty

Yup... I am so old that Dinosaurs were still roaming the planet

They will give a drivers license to just about anybody

For future reference dad, when your dumping your load open the tail gate first

Mexico 1968, my dad put an engine from a Porsche into that VW Bus for the trip

Also in Mexico, this guy was my friend while I was there, lots of fun!

How many 8 year old's get their shoes shined in Mexico nowadays?

Am I running to or from something or someone?
