This is for Craig Bowman. I also lived on Royal Ave with my 2 older brothers. Your brother Bruce was a good friend of my one brother Fred Cole. The reason I remember Bruce so well was him and my brother being "cool" and your brother was wearing sunglasses for the longest time out in the hot sun and he was so fair skinned he got sunburned badly and for a while he walked around with a red face and a total white outline of the sunglasses he had worn on that sunny day, well, let's put it this way, he really stood out!

Hi all - I've just updated the Guestbook to the latest version, and hopefully that will solve the 'Cannot post at this time' error message some of us have been getting while trying to post.

Just a couple things:

- Don't put URL's (web addresses) in the text area when posting - that will generate the 'cannot post' error for sure.
- and for now, if you want to make multiple postings during the same session, you'll have to close and reopen your browser between each new post.

Hopefully, this solves the problem; but if it's still acting up, please let us know asap. Cheers!

For anyone having trouble getting to Edie's pages, click on the site to the left, then click on the piece of art you see on the next screen, then on "Web page team", and then again on "Check it Out". (the key is to click on each page to get to the next). Well worth the visit!!!

OMG! What a great discovery this site is. I spent from 1960-1965 living in Shilo from age 5 through 9. Some of you will likely remember my older brother Bruce who was 14 through 18, or perhaps even my older sister Wendy who was 8 through 12. We lived at 3 Royal Ave

Being as young as I was, I am amazed at how clear my memories are. Many of the names on this site are ones I remember as my brother's friends like Doug Jordan, Ron Darling and the Howies.

Being so young at the time I don't have any yearbooks to go through but names like Joanne Peterson, Maxwell Clark, Gary Anns, Leona Roach, Carol Orton, Mark Beattie, Barbara and Diane Parnham were people I knew on a more direct basis. Max did have a couple of older brothers, Stewart and I think Ron. Max's father came to teach phys. ed.

While Bruce attended P.E.H.S., I started kindergarten at O'Kelly then did grade 1 at the back of Princess Elizabeth, grade 2 back at O'Kelly, grade 3 we took a brown army bus from the parking lot of P.E. to the other side of camp where an old H building was converted to a school, then back to O'Kelly for grade 4 with Mrs. Bohonas. My older sister got to attend the new Greenwood school. (I think it was called Greenwood)

I can remember when the cost of the matinee show at Strange Hall on Saturday went from 15 cents to 25 cents, cutting in on funds slated for popcorn and a drink. How tramatic.. inflation hits a seven year old! However at the end of the show if you were quick and grabbed one of the brooms they handed out, to help sweep up, you would get a free pass to the next week's show. Snacks restored and all was right with the world again.

During "Fire Prevention" week, besides the parade, a plane would fly overhead each day just after school let out and they would alternatively drop: leaflets, balloons with a coupon inside, and miniature parachutes. You could turn the balloon coupon or little parachutes in at the firehall in exchange for a Silver Dollar. I actually caught one of the parachutes. To a kid, who the @#$! is interested in a Silver Dollar when you have a cool little parachute to play with.

Going out to watch the "Honest John", building little dams out by a culvet, spear grass, cub scouts and cub summer camp--Camp Kipacheewin, the variety show where Bruce played the piano for a couple of numbers, the variety store in the new mini mall with the cool display of "Dinky Toys", the discoloured brownish water when one of the two water towers got down near the botton, the display of lizards -- snakes etc. at O'Kelly,... and on and on.

So Hi to all of you fellow Shilobrats!
