ShiloBrats Guestbook

The recent cold snap across most of Canada brought back some memories of winter in Shilo in the early sixties. I don't recall the schools closing even when the temperature reached -40. (Maybe they did-but we like to think that we were much hardier then!)

I do recall how cold those old brown army buses were when riding to Brandon, or other communities for sporting events.

Remember those frost shields that were mounted on the vehicle windo ws to enable a partial view outside?

Remember Snuffy Clark not letting any of us kids leave the swimming
pool at the Rec Centre until he confirmed that we had dried our hair?

I remember unsuccessfully trying to ice-fish at Waggle Springs-the ice was too thick for our feeble attempts to cut a hole!

Howdy from us Westies.
William 'Bump' Murphy here. An early Merry Christmas to all.
I have not been on in a bit. ..My Mum Dad and all the children of William Geo. Murphy/Audrey Murphy including Ernie. William. Gale. Larry. Roseanne and Guy lived at number 7 Ubique up until summer of 1960 or so. Long time and good friends of all other Ubique residents. Should be advised for the 'brats' site of that fact (# 7).
My bother Ernie ( deceased) played on the Shilo Bruins hockey I believe the team was called. My Dad and Mum ran the coffee stand at Sports Palace. ....We lived in H -Huts before first small PMQ across camp before moving to freshly built larger houses. We had coal furnaces in the first one we lived in. Went to nursery school in that house. ..My Dad was one of the bus drivers from the Transport Motor Poole section.
Brrrrrr. All of us camp brats spent a lot of time in them there winters fighting snow fences and snow drifts. ....Summers were hot and do not know whether the bugs or the ' foggers' of DDT. chems or whatever it was that sprayed the homes and streets was the lesser of evil. Gopher hunting and catching grasshoppers.
Waggle Springs was only a place where my Dad would take me on some weekends to help 'Jack' fish.
My Dad was bartender at Sgt's mess so I helped him clean the mess dirty tables and cigarette ashtray and cans on Sat and Sunday morn..
I certainly remember many names. The guys mostly. Chris Evoy and a couple of the Martin boys were our best friends. As were the Findlay boys. The Whitings were across street form us. Funny that now I cannot remember the name of our neighbors in our duplex.
Anyway just checking in to let you know we were there at good 'ol # 7.
Chuckle. True story here. My Dad had a hot temper and my brother Ernie aquired a ' Bowie' knife against his wishes. Dad promptly punched a hole in the gyproc wall just before where you would walk up the stairs. He tossed in the knife and holster and plastered back up the hole. Knife was probably still there when they knocked down # 7. I have many stories like that one. ..Mum Dad and all us kids living there.
We put the first grass on that slip of property. Each family was responsible for their own half. Drives and garage were done after that.
later Wm.
