FALL 2021

It’s My Party!

By Jeanette Paddon, St. Thomas

On Sunday mornings, I tune in to my

favourite radio station to listen to the

artists from the 50’s and 60’s. For a little

while, I am fifteen years old once again,

as I sing along with Paul Anka, Pat

Boone, Leslie Gore, Fats Domino, Elvis,

and The Beatles. It surprises me that so

many years later, I still remember all the

words to the songs. Growing up in a pretelevision

era, my friends and I turned

to the radio for entertainment.

Each time a new song was

played, we would rush out

to purchase the little

45 rpm record of this

song, then spend hours

learning to do the “Jive”

and the “Twist” as we

sang along with the music.

So very young, and just like

today’s kids, we were slaves

to the latest trends. Those

were the days of “penny loafers,”

“bobby socks,” and “pedal pushers.” A

reversible plaid pleated skirt worn with

cardigan sweaters buttoned all the way

down, and then worn backward, was

our favourite school outfit. We rolled

our long hair on prickly rollers before

from Daytripping May-June 2012

going to bed, in order to look good the

next day, yet still managed to get a good

night’s sleep! We thought ourselves to

be cool and invincible, and believed

we were the generation that was going

to change the world! Getting a job

would enable us to buy everything we

wished for and do anything we wanted.

However, as fate would have it, Cupid

got involved, which found us all getting

married, raising a family, and

working hard to make ends

meet. The years rushed by, and

one day I found my mother

looking back in my mirror…

Now, while my friends and I

discuss our aches and pains,

we shake our head in disbelief

at the realization that we

are now today’s senior

citizens! Heading out

each day for my “fitness”

walk, I know, that as they smile and

wave to me, the young people I meet

think of me as that nice ‘older’ woman

from the neighbourhood. Perhaps it

is just as well they do not see me on

Sunday mornings, as I sing along to “It’s

my party…”

We’re all getting older, we may as well laugh about it!

The World at Your Fingertips

By Mark Moran, Publisher

I have a very good friend who will

not take my advice on something that I

think would be really good for him, and

isn’t nearly as difficult as he thinks it is.

Joe (we’ll call him) is one of the newer

residents in a nearby long-term home.

He’s an avid reader and his mind is as

sharp as a tack, but getting around has

become a serious challenge. I’ve tried to

convince him, to no avail, to learn how to

use an iPad.

An iPad is one of several brands of

tablets, basically touchscreens that contain

a world of information, but are much

easier to handle and use than a computer.

I’m not writing this article to preach to the

masses of people who are already well

aware of what an iPad is and is capable of.

I am writing it for the person that is put off

by or afraid of any technology, believing

that they could never understand it. I’m

also writing this for their kids – the ones

who have been saying the same thing to

them for months on end with no better


What Joe doesn’t realize is that an iPad

is hardly any more complicated than

using a bank card but it does a whole lot

more. This device, which can be cradled

in one hand and manipulated using the

touchscreen with the other, contains every

book he’s ever read. Actually, it can give

him easy access to almost every book

ever written. It can also give him access

to almost every song he’s ever heard,

thousands of movies and TV shows, and

most of the knowledge in the entire world

in multiple languages.

If Joe has the urge to learn more about

World War II he could type that into the

search bar and choose from, in this case,

over 2.03 billion pieces of information.

No one needs to know that much about

war, so let’s choose Elvis Presley instead.

Google is a search engine where you

would type the King’s name and, within

one second, it will offer you 134 million

articles, photos, recordings, trivia, stupid

facts, look-alikes, just about anything you

could imagine. If you search just Elvis, and

not Presley, you’ll have 205 million entries

to choose from.

Joe is set in his ways. He will not listen

to me, but would love it if only he could

get past the fact that it’s technology that

he doesn’t need to understand. I don’t

understand it either. Every photo I’ve

ever taken in my life will now fit onto a

device the size of my pinky finger. I don’t

know how it does it, and I don’t need to.

It’s amazing, and after a small learning

curve most people could master at least

some parts of it. Joe would find it to be

invaluable if he used it only for reading.

I’m sure that the staff or some residents at

his new home are perfectly capable of, and

very accustomed to, helping people get

acquainted with these remarkable devices

and overcoming the learning curve.

I didn’t know how to play euchre until

someone taught me and euchre is vastly

more difficult than operating an iPad. But

with an iPad you don’t have a partner

looking at you as if to say “What the Hell

have you done? I don’t have any spades!”

It’s also a remarkable communication

tool. Whatever age you are, you can find

and contact many friends and relatives

through Facebook, or email or other social

media platforms. You can speak to your

kids or your grandkids with it, and see


You can write notes or an entire book

on it, record your voice, song lyrics or

random thoughts. You can play chess or

solitaire and even euchre against it, or

against people anywhere on the globe.

It’s also a very good camera, a compass,

a star chart, a map of everywhere, a photo

album, a cookbook, a radio, a far better

sports page, a movie player, a calculator,

a dictionary, an alarm clock... the list goes

on and on and on.

I should note that these are the easy

things, the simple things it is capable of.

Every eight year old can do these things

with ease, and so can my friend if he

would only try it for an hour. Trust me,

Joe has an hour to spare at this stage of

his life. I can’t convince him to just give

it a try, but maybe, just maybe, someone

reading this will take my advice.

What’s that old saying… Don’t knock it

till you’ve tried it?

Thanks for reading.

Laughter is said to be

the best medicine and

there is a lot of truth in that

statement. When we laugh a good belly

laugh, the brain and thyroid gland release

endorphins. This substance affects us

by giving us a “high.” We feel good.

Endorphins are also triggered by heavy

exercise. Runners of marathons, for

example, experience a “runner’s high.”

Not only does one feel good in the “high”

state, stress and pain are alleviated and a

sense of well being takes over. Endorphins

are terrific things.

It is not merely a matter of imagining

either. The relief from pain, for example,

can be measured. A hospitalized patient

has a sedimentation rate taken from a

blood sample. The “sed” rate is clearly

reduced after a bout of laughter. The

endorphins act the same as morphine

by affecting the pain mechanism in the

body. But endorphins have an advantage

over opiates. There are no side effects and

no addictions because they are natural

body substances. They also inhibit the

emotional response to pain and this is not

an inconsiderable advantage. Those who

are emotionally possessed by pain are

easily depressed, a state which can cause a

lack of desire to continue the fight. In such

instances it is easy to give up. Endorphins

help prevent this.

Decades ago, Norman Cousins wrote

of his hospitalization with a serious illness

and how he overcame it by a combination

of standard and unorthodox methods, the

principle input of the latter being laughter.

He watched comic videos and/or read

humorous books and achieved relief of

pain, enough to sleep for a couple of hours

until he ultimately recovered his health.

He felt 10 to 15 minutes of laughing on a

daily basis enabled him to recover from an

illness the doctors told him would kill him.

As unscientific as it sounds, specialists

have studied this phenomenon, and

hospitals provided comic videos and books

to stimulate laughter in the wards. It was

found that people with heart conditions

were less likely to laugh, and even when

they did the laughter was short lived.

Healthy people on the other hand laughed

readily and often. It was thought that the

endothelium lining of the blood vessels

was affected by laughter in a positive way.

The recommendation from the study was

“Don’t take yourself too seriously and try

to see the humour in the world around

you. Laugh 15 minutes daily.”

As reported by

In 2005, Marc Alton and Anne

Kurtz-Alton purchased a 90-acre farm

in Plympton-Wyoming to make their

dream of starting a winery a reality.

“When we came to look at the farm,

everything was blooming, the wind

was warm, the smell was amazing,

and we fell in love,” shares Kurtz-Alton.

The Altons hand-planted a test acre in

2006 with more than fifteen different

varieties of grape, including Cabernet

Sauvignon, Chardonnay and some

hybrid cold-temperature varieties. In

2007, they planted a second test acre

with even more varieties, including

Shiraz and Baco Noir. The vineyard

was then thoughtfully planned out,

with an additional acre hand-planted

in each of the next five years.

The vines took three to five years to

mature before the Altons could harvest

the grapes. During that time, they

frequently visited the Niagara wine

region. “I would book us into bed and

breakfasts attached to wineries. We


Alton Farms Estate Winery

developed a number of friendships

and learned so much about vines

and the wine-making process.” Even

though they couldn’t harvest the

grapes, they still needed to look after

the vines, which includes pinching

off the buds, controlling disease and

insects, pruning and trellising the

vines, and deleafing, all of which is

done by hand.

In 2013, Alton Farms Estate

Winery, located at 5547 Aberarder

Line, opened their store with 2,000

litres of wine ready for purchase.

In 2019, their seven acres of vines,

supplemented with grapes from

Niagara Region, produced 20,000

litres of wine. “We typically have

between 13 and 18 different wines

each year.” Alton Farms Estate Winery

is housed in a century-old drive shed.

In 2016, a barrel room was added, and

in 2018, their tasting room and wine

store was expanded. “A lot of people

are skeptical about Ontario wines

because they envision them

being sweet, but our wines are

dry, which is why we encourage

people to come for a tasting.”

The Altons try to be sustainable

in all their practices. “We use

our herd of sheep instead of

chemicals to keep the vineyard

weeds under control, we don’t

irrigate which keeps our wine

quality up and reduces our water

use, and we use repurposed items as

much as we can.” The Altons are also

thankful for their many friends who

volunteer to help hand-pick grapes

each year during harvest season.

“They also help with bottling, labeling

and events that we host.” Their wines

are processed, bottled, corked, and

labeled by hand. Alton Farm Estate

wines can be purchased at their onsite

store and at select LCBOs.

Alton Farms Estate Winery

supports a number of local non

profits by donating wine baskets and

gift certificates, but their favorite

fundraisers are hosted on their

property. This year marks their 5th

Annual Grape Stomp for Bluewater

Raptors Rehabilitation and their 4th

Annual Aberarder Weinfest (German

for wine festival) for Heaven’s Wildlife

Rescue. “We appreciate the support

we’ve received, so it’s wonderful to be

able to support other organizations.

We are really proud to be the pioneer

estate winery and vineyard in this

emerging wine region.”

by Stan Scizlowski, Lasalle

from Daytripping Nov.-Dec. 2008 & 2020

Here, at Cassino War Cemetery,

where the early morning shadows of

the Montecassino Heights steal slowly,

almost imperceptibly across the gateway

to the Liri Valley, lie buried the earthly

remains of our Canadian comrades.

They gave their lives in a just war to

preserve the freedoms we so dearly

cherish, and now they lie side by side

with their British and Commonwealth

comrades. The rich soil of Italy was

made richer by the flesh and blood they

had so freely given to it.

Their last resting place is one

of incomparable beauty, so nobly

designed, crafted and maintained.

Under the blue skies of spring and

summer the wayward breezes sigh

and murmur through the tall pines and

acacias. Within shade and out in the

warming sun stand rows upon rows of

white headstones that mark

the places where they sleep.

Bright flowering shrubs and

plants grow above them,

and the green, green grass

on which we walk is of the

land they called home. They

are heroes. They gave their

‘all’ as they stood at the

threshold of what should

have been an abundant and

satisfying life. Their dreams

and the dreams of those

who loved them have been

shattered on the hard anvil of war.

They know no more weariness or

pain, nor exulting joy, nor tears of

sadness, nor the torments of anger and

despair. They are sleeping. They have

known not the soft caress of a woman’s

love, nor the love of a child in their

arms. So much has been denied them.

They awake not to bright dawns nor

hear the thunder and see the flash of

summer’s storms. The leaves of autumn

scattered not to their tread, nor the

joys of spring greet them in all its glory.

They are sleeping. Though the world

has trembled again and again to the

loud and frightful sounds of war, they

feared not, for their peace is forever.

They have fought the good fight, have

laid down their arms, and are resting,

a sleep that knows no waking, no

tomorrow. We who have walked safely

out of the shadows of the valley of

death will always remember them. Yes,

we will remember them until that time

when we are to climb the long stairway

to eternity.

“They were only in the morning of

their lives when the golden trumpets

called them to eternity.”

Tales of Lambton County Roads

Do you remember the last time you spent

a pleasant day travelling on the back

roads of Lambton County, marveling

at the scenery and reminiscing of

the events these old roads have seen

over the years? They’ve witnessed the

days of the early settlers travelling by

horse, oxen and foot to the modern

speeding traffic whistling by with barely

a sideward glance. The dusty old roads

of the pioneers are now mostly paved

to accommodate the speed of modern

day life. But one of our true pleasures is

to meander down an old country road,

drinking in the natural wonders of the

countryside and remembering the days

of yore. Strange that people will travel

so far to see the wonders of the world

when there is so much beauty and

mystery right here in our own backyards.

We have the rivers, lakes, (Huron and

Chipican) the historic sites and buildings

but even our roads offer so much if we

are ready for the experience.

There are many famous roads here

in Lambton County with interesting

tales of when, why and how they

were built. Some of the early pioneer

roads were useful for only a short time

before disappearing, while others have

remained to become busy thoroughfares

to this day.

The Egremont Road was built by early

governments in the 1830’s hoping to

encourage more settlers in the west of

the province, as well as provide a military

road from London to their proposed

harbour at Errol.

There is the still busy London Line,

built by Sarnia’s early citizens during

the 1840’s, to divert traffic from the

government planned harbour at Errol to

their own proposed Port Sarnia.

The famous Plank Road was built to

Oil Springs by these same citizens in the

1860’s to divert the oil traffic to Sarnia.

This busy road now handles most of the

traffic between Sarnia and Petrolia but

has a historic past unknown to many of

its travellers. The tales this road could


The Nauvoo Road was chopped through

the wilderness by Archibald Gardener

and his followers on their way to join the

Mormons in Nauvoo, Illinois.

The histories of these famous roads are

fairly well known, but many don’t realize

that the construction of the London Line

was organized to purposely strangle

the settlement at Errol. By building a

planked road to Warwick

Village they diverted

traffic to Sarnia which

became the most direct

road to the harbour to

the west of London. This

road, though plagued

with swamps, established

Sarnia as the centre for

both land and water

traffic at the head of the

St. Clair River. History

proved Sarnians such as Cameron, Vidal

and Durand to be right, and shipping

at the port grew even more when the

railroads later arrived.

However, there are many more historic

old roads in Lambton County whose

histories have long been forgotten. Many

are still in use, dotted with picturesque

farms, schools, churches and community

halls that arouse our imaginations. But

though many of the old sites and tales

are gone one can still enjoy the nostalgia

of the past while travelling along these

quiet thoroughfares. If we only knew

the stories of their history there would

be even more enjoyment during such

leisurely drives.

Some of these forgotten roads scattered

The Old Kitchen Rocker

There’s an old rocking chair in the kitchen

That srs fond memories in me

Scenes from the days of my childhood

Rocked on a dear mother’s knee.

Grandmother sat with her kning

In this same old rocking chair,

And I curiously watched her fingers

Working such wonders there.

When at mes I was weary or sad

It somehow dispelled countless worries

That o’ mes I needlessly had.

It has rocked a fih generaon

And through the years had many a blow

But disguised are its scars of usage

With a colorful hand knied throw.

Sll as a faithful friend it waits,

With open arms and cushioned seat

For all who love its simple charm

Or gently rock themself to sleep.

I treasure this old kitchen rocker

As others before me cared for it such

Though yet with its me worn frame,

It sll has that myscal, magic touch.

If spring is the budding season, summer

the season of sunshine and roses, and

winter, except for snow-bunnies, the

season that drives us southward, or

indoors, then autumn, dazzling in its

cloak of blazing colours, is a season for

all reasons.

I got to thinking about autumn things

after seeing the movie: “Autumn in

New York,” and on leaving the show,

overhearing members of the audience

rave about how beautiful New York City

must be in the fall. I have visited New

York City in October, and it certainly is

as lovely as the movie shows it to be at

that time of the year. However, I would

challenge anyone to name a place that

tops Ontario when it comes to fabulous

fall foliage.

Being a Fall-Guy, the very words

that autumn and fall conjure up in my

mind: russet pears, cranberry sauce,

Fall Guy

apple strudel, pumpkin pies and

Niagara peaches, fall on my ear like

the soothing sound of raindrops

plopping on lily pads. When the

humidity, the smog and the bugs of

summer have all been blown away by

September’s cool breezes, and the slush

and sniffles of winter are still forming

ranks before attacking us in force, fall,

exploding in a blaze of maples and sumac,

turns Ontario into a red, yellow and orange

wonderland indeed.

Fall is: Halloween ghost stories told

around a wood fire, and bobbing for apples

in a big tub of water. It’s little goblins trickor-treating

in the October gloaming, their

innocent faces hidden behind devilish

masks. Autumn is: Fishing in the misty

chill of a lake that’s

been deserted by

its fair-weather

friends. It’s listening to

the eerie call of the loon

while roasting wieners over a campfire.

It’s the World Series, and football games,

Labour Day and Thanksgiving. This

golden season that falls between sunburn

and frostbite, means homemade plum

jam and blueberry pie, cotton candy

and all the midway bells and smells at

the county fair. It’s a time for shopping

at roadside stands that are flush with

the fresh produce of tree and field. It’s

families going on Sunday afternoon trips

to the orchard for tractor rides and the

tang of fresh apple cider.

I know a few people who find the fall

of the year a depressing season. They

tell me that it reminds them of the

death of summer, and the coming of

the snows. Being a Fall Guy, I, of course,

see it differently. With falling leaves

swirling around my feet, the pungent

smell of wood-smoke in the air, and the

bush ablaze in the autumn sun, death is

the last thing on my mind as I wander

through the magical season of a hundred

hues that separates the green of summer

from winter’s white. In fact, I think it

would be wonderful if everyone looked

this beautiful as they “slipped the surly

bonds of earth.”

There are summer places and there are

winter places, but when the fall queen

dons her gorgeous gown of myriad colours

and struts her stuff across Ontario, I know

one thing for sure: There is no place more

beautiful than this place, anyplace.

Re/Max Sarnia Realty Inc. Brokerage





By Billy Yurchuk, General Manager, Wellings of Corunna

Believe it or not, in Ireland, where Hallowe'en began, the first

jack-o'-lanterns weren't made of pumpkins. They were made out of

rutabagas, potatoes, turnips, or even beets!

There is an old Irish legend about a man named Stingy Jack who

was too mean to get into heaven and had played too many

tricks on the devil to go to hell. When he died, he

had to walk the earth, carrying a lantern made

out of a turnip with a burning coal inside.

Stingy Jack became known as "Jack of

the Lantern," or "Jack-o'-lantern".

From this legend came the Irish

tradition of placing jack-o'-lanterns

made of turnips and other vegetables

in windows or by doors on Hallowe'en. The jack-o'-lanterns are meant to

scare away Stingy Jack and all the other spirits that are said to walk

the earth on that night.

It wasn't until the tradition was brought to North America by

immigrants that pumpkins were used for jack-o'-lanterns.

Loneliness and social isolation are a

common and serious, health risk, but

it isn’t always recognized as one. Some

people think that becoming lonely and

depressed is simply just part of growing

older. This is simply not true. The

capacity and need for friendship does

not decrease with age, and seniors with

healthy social networks can continue

living rich, full lives.

Loneliness isn’t just a feeling—it’s

a physical stressor that can adversely

affect one’s health. That’s the conclusion

that more and more researchers are

coming to as they study the effects of

chronic loneliness and isolation.

People who go through life without

much support and companionship from

friends and family are more likely to

suffer a variety of health effects, both

physically and mentally.

Lonely people are less resilient

than individuals with healthy social

lives. They’re more likely to become

ill, and they’re less able to cope with

mentally and emotionally stressful

situations. Someone who suffers from

chronic loneliness is at risk for lowered

cognitive function, mood problems like

depression, and addiction to alcohol or


Loneliness can strike anyone at any

age. However, seniors are at especially

high risk for chronic loneliness and all

the complications that go with it. That’s

why preventing loneliness in seniors

should be an especially high priority

for caregivers and people with senior

family members.

Seniors are often unprepared to deal

with the boredom and isolation of postretirement

life. After retiring, many

seniors find themselves feeling idle and

unfulfilled unless they try to find new

productive things to do with their time.

Over time, these feelings of boredom

and isolation turn into full-blown

chronic loneliness. Chronic loneliness

is stigmatized, and many people don’t

want to admit that they’re feeling

isolated. Loneliness does not get better

on its own–fixing it requires a person to

change their attitudes and

habits, which is usually

difficult to do alone.

Asking for help, especially

emotional help, is a good

first step to combatting

loneliness and isolation.

I encourage you to

find social groups, group

activities, even move

to a place where it is

not lonely. Life is tough

enough. Just love and take

care of each other.

Wisdom of...

Louisa May Alcott

I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.

Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more

We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to

be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come

true, as long as we keep believing.

A faithful friend is a strong defense; And he that hath found

Money is the root of all evil, and yet it is such a useful root

that we cannot get on without it any more than we can

without potatoes.

It takes people a long time to learn the difference between

talent and genius, especially ambitious young men and


Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I

may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty,

A Small Miracle

from Daytripping November-December 2004 issue

by Jean Leedale Hobson,

West Vancouver, BC

Welcome to ...

THE Club


Serving Sarnia-Lambton for 33 Years


635 Cathcart Blvd., Sarnia


There wasn’t much Christmas

spirit in my heart the year that

I had started kindergarten. I

was covered in red spots, my

tummy hurt, my head was

hot and achy and I had to

stay in bed instead of being

at the class party with all

the other children. Well - not

quite ‘all’ - three others, my

mother told me after talking

to the teacher, where also in

the thick of measles. Not the nicest of

Christmas gifts to have been exchanged

in a classroom of five-year-olds.

One event did brighten the scene,

though - my beloved Gran’s arrival

on the earliest train she could catch.

Mother must have had her hands full

with a miserable little girl in bed, and a

two-year-old boy determined to sneak

into the sickroom and play with his

sister. She probably welcomed Gran

as fervently as I did as I relished in the

personal pampering, the lavender water

dabbed on my forehead, and all the TLC.

Snakes and Ladders, Parcheesi, Old

Maid and Snap kept Gran busy in her

role of amusing me, intended to make

up for missing the party on the last day

of school. Hardly a prima donna, the

dear lady entertained me with off-key

renditions of carols old and modern,

although joining in the choruses made

my own scratchy throat sore.

She told me all the familiar stories

over and over, but I don’t suppose I was

as caught up in the birth of the Baby

Jesus as I was in the dismal thought

that Santa Claus might not stop at

our house. Would he dare to come

down our chimney? Would I have an

empty stocking at the foot of my bed

on Christmas morning? And, oh dear,

would my little brother miss out too, all

because of me? Gran tried to assure me

that the venerable old gent was immune

to children’s germs on his important

mission around the world, and anyway,

the cold air around his sleigh would

freeze any little nasties flying around.

She was right, of course. On the big

morning I woke to find my stocking

overflowing with bounty from his bag,

and a note was attached. In a hasty

scrawl was printed: “Get well soon.

Love, Santa. XXX.”

After some porridge and juice, Mother

took the tray away, replacing it with a

stack of gifts on the bed. She

and Gran rolled their eyes and

threw up their hands as my little

brother came in and clambered

up on the patchwork quilt to

join in the fun.

Gran’s present was a doll,

the kind that today would be

a collector’s item, an antique

of considerable value if only

it had not, in time, gone to

its well-deserved rest in dolly

heaven. The face was fine porcelain, the

features painted to perfection, with skyblue

eyes that really opened, thick lashes

feathering her cheeks when her eyelids

closed. Long golden ringlets were tied

with blue ribbon bows. The clothes she

wore were the height of fashion at the

time, and Gran had knitted and sewn

others. She was beautiful! I instantly

named her ‘Sylvia’ after my current

best friend.

Naturally I wanted her in bed with me

that night, even though Mother and Gran

gently advised against it in case Sylvia

caught measles too. My pleas won out,

and her golden head lay beside mine

on the pillow, the need to keep my new

friend close to me selfishly overriding

the risk of contagion.

Next morning, though, when I woke

up, the china face was covered with

red spots! Mother, Dad and Gran raced

in at my initial shout, but instead of

saying “We told you so,” they burst

out laughing. Gran took a wet cloth

and wiped the spots away, and Dad

grinned as he showed me the smeared

red palette and wet brush he’d used

from the new paintbox Santa had left

me. Sylvia’s remarkable recovery was a

make-believe medical miracle. My little

brother, though, when unfortunately his

turn came, was most upset that his red

spots couldn’t be erased as quickly as

the dolly’s.

Sylvia eventually succumbed, as

dollies do, to too many years of

undressing, dressing and hair-brushing,

but I like to think that the story of

her remarkable recovery has brought

smiles to many a measle-marred

little face over the generations since

it happened. It’s a tale this grandma

dusts off and brings out of her store of

memories whenever she gets the call

to go and help the latest victim of the

childhood malady.

At Grandma's House

I like the taste of turkey,

Any time throughout the year.

But it never seems to taste as good,

As when Thanksgiving's here.

Could be all the trimmings,

That are cooked with it to eat,

But I think it's eating at Grandma's house,

That makes it such a treat!

Toys That Almost Killed Us

Part 2

In the summer issue of “Welcome To

The Club” we heard how firecrackers,

pocket knives, and empty spray cans

were common playthings in the “good old

days.” Tired of “explosive” and “cutting

edge” experiences, in this edition,

Lee explains how she decided to ditch

playing with the boys, and opt for less

dangerous activities with the girls.

Enjoy. (Read Part 1 by visiting

welcometotheclub.ca, Summer

issue, page 34)

First up: Chinese skipping.

The girls had long pieces of

one inch thick elastic used in

waistbands from their mom’s

sewing baskets. They’d knot it

together and then two girls would stand

about four feet apart, elastic around

their ankles. The “jumper” would start

at “ankles” and there was a pattern to it.

First you’d jump on the elastic on one

side, then the other, then in between,

inside and outside. Then you’d do a

crossover, hooking the elastic at the

front of your ankles and jumping over

the other side and repeat. Every move

had a name: hornet, Yankees, wildcat,

etc. Once you’d finished the first cycle

at ankles, you’d move up to calfsies,

kneesies, thighsies, waisties. If you

messed up, it was the next girl’s turn

and you’d switch places. Well, being

a competitor, I thought, “this will be

easy because I can jump like a boy.”

Sure enough, I advanced to thighsies,

but when I went to do the crossover, I

stumbled, tripped over the elastic, and

ended up sprawled, red-faced, knees,

hands and chin scraped bloody.

While the girls played with “Indian

Rubber” balls, I and most of the boys

preferred Wham-O SuperBall. The

black, synthetic rubber ball, when

thrown to the pavement with all one’s

strength, could bounce higher than a

three-story house. In a tie-in to my

current home of Sarnia, Ontario,

it was made with polybutadiene,

hydrated silica, zinc oxide,

stearic acid and other goodies,

most of which continue to

be produced right here.

Dale’s older brother, Jack,

the de facto leader of the

boys because of his size

and strength, wound up and

almost left his feet hurling the rock

hard ball onto the pavement. Up...

up….up it sailed, all of us craning our

necks skyward, trying to spot it in the

sun. Dale yelled out that it had sailed

to Heaven. Jack briefly turned his head

sideways to call him stupid and the

falling sphere caught him square on his

forehead, careening off his noggin’ way

up in the air again. Jack was felled by

the blow and developed a goose egg the

exact size of the ball right between his

eyes. I read in Wikipedia that in the late

By Lee Michaels, Sarnia

1960’s Wham-O made a SuperBall the

size of a bowling ball as a promotional

stunt. It fell from the 23rd story of a

hotel in Australia and destroyed a

parked convertible on the second

bounce. All I know is that a SuperBall

fell onto the roof or Mr. Smith’s cruiser

and put a huge dent in it and we all

ran like the wind because he was

a constable at the local RCMP

detachment. (He also made

a kick-butt outdoor rink,

complete with boards and

lights in his backyard every

winter where we almost killed

each other with slapshots with a

frozen solid puck).

By far, the toy that caused me the most

pain was the set of “clackers” that were

all the rage. Two heavy tempered glass

spheres (later changed to hard acrylic

plastic), each attached to a separate

string. You’d put the tab attached to the

strings between your fingers, and start

swinging them, your wrist moving up

and down, trying to get them to “clack”

together both on top of and below your

hand. Doing so, though, took a lot of

practise, which in turn led to black

and blue arm forearms on most of

the kids in the neighbourhood. And if

that wasn’t dangerous enough, they’d

shatter, sending shards flying in every

direction. They were eventually pulled

from the market in both the United

States and Canada after being classified

as a “mechanical hazard.”

I haven’t even scratched the surface

of toys that no parent of today would

allow their kids to play with: electric

Easy-Bake Ovens that could

shock or burn you, BB guns

that left red, welted miniorbs

on your skin, and lawn

darts that impaled many a


But after playing with

knives for years, it was the most

benign toy that I remember

piercing the skin. I was playing

pick-up sticks (a “girl’s game”)

on the wooden front porch of the

three Ruf sisters’ house when Jack

and Dale sauntered over. “That looks

easy,” they said. “We want to play,

too.” So after explaining the game, we

began. Mind you, these weren’t the

flimsy little twigs kids play with today.

These were thick, heavy duty, very

pointy pick-up sticks. Jack’s pudgy,

clumsy fingers were no match for his

little brother’s slim digits. When Dale

handily won the game, Jack picked up

the last stick and furiously slammed it

pointy end down on the deck, impaling

the webbing between Dale’s index

finger and thumb to the deck. The girls

shrieked, Dale cried, Jack ran away and

I pulled the stick out. Give me a safe old

ivory jack knife anyday.

FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE in Greater Sarnia Area!

Sarnia’s Kevin Allen doesn’t want to

see good food go to waste.

He also likes to see seniors eat

nutritious, affordable meals.

Driven by those two principles,

Allen has prepared a whopping 50,000

free meals in the past 18 months,

often spending 70 hours a week in

the kitchen and organizing dozens of

volunteers to deliver meals to those

who need them.

He calls his project Sarnia Blessings

and is hoping to establish it as a

registered charity that can be sustained

in the longterm.

It all began in March 2020 when

Allen cooked for a function at his

church and had a few meals left over.

“I knew some seniors who might

appreciate them and offered to

deliver,” he said.

Then he found a spare roast in his

freezer and cooked that up too, after

learning older residents were having

difficulty getting groceries during the

first pandemic lockdown. Many were

afraid to go outside.

“I found older couples, where the

wife was sick and he didn’t know

how to cook anything. I realized

there were so many people who need

good, nutritious food,” said Allen, 55,

a professional chef who has cooked

many years for a large summer camp

in Algonquin Park.

With those first meals delivered,

Allen was surprised by more requests.

Most were from family members

worried about elderly relatives

struggling through the pandemic.

Volunteers began chipping in to help

organize and the number jumped to

90 meals a week. Demand continued

to surge after the group started a

Facebook page.

“I always said this was all

backwards,” said Allen, who is

described by friends as a very humble


“Most organizations see a need

and try to meet it. With this, I started

cooking and then uncovered a need.

“You wouldn’t believe the number

of people waiting to get into nursing

homes who shouldn’t be using a


It was only a matter of time before

Sarnia Blessings began taking referrals

from Bluewater Health for people

going home post-surgery, and from

community organizations like the

Alzheimer’s Society.

At their busiest, Allen and his

volunteers delivered 795 free meals a

week to about 160 people. That’s five

meals per person per week.

“We were going to cut it off at 100

but just kept going when the need was

there,” he said.

Allen, his wife Jan and their team

worked tirelessly to organize it all and

started a screening process. From the

beginning, he didn’t let the food bills

worry him even though it was costing

thousands of dollars.

“I always said I’d keep cooking

as long as donations came in, and

they rolled in week after week from

churches, individuals, businesses… so

many contributed,” he said.

“I think God primed me for

something worthwhile. If I can cook

for 500 rich kids a day at summer

camp, I can do it for this.”

His church, Lighthouse Community

Church, was a big support, as were

other churches and service clubs. One

local woman made bread. Another

baked 600 muffins a week. A Canadian

Red Cross grant secured by the French

Community Centre covered food costs

for 12 weeks.

It was truly a community

effort and a labor of love for

Allen, who was recognized

by the City of Sarnia for

going “above and beyond in

response to COVID-19.”

The Sarnia Sting and

Imperial Oil honoured him

and Sarnia Blessings with an

“Extra Mile” award in the fight

against the pandemic.

But eventually the 70-hour

weeks proved to be too much.

Seven months into the

project, a case of shingles

slowed Allen. In February,

tired and short on donations,

he put the full Sarnia Blessings

program “on hold.”

Yet he didn’t stop cooking

free meals entirely. Allen and Jan have

never stopped preparing 150 meals a

week for the oldest demographic on

their roster, mostly those aged 85 and


And work continues behind the

scenes to bring back the meal plan at

full capacity.

In the last few months, Sarnia

Blessings has incorporated and struck

a board of directors .

The group is working with the

new owners of Sarnia’s Central

United Church to firm up a deal for

permanent use of the commercial

kitchen there. London-based Xoana

Corporation intends to redevelop the

historic church into residential units

but Allen says Xoana representatives

are enthusiastic about donating the

building’s kitchen space.

“We’re working through a rezoning

at city hall that’s taking a while,”

Allen said.

Other community organizations

like The Inn of the Good Shepherd are

providing some of the food he needs.

“If the Inn has extra produce, for

instance, they’ll send it to me and

that’s wonderful. It ensures no food

is thrown out and that seniors who

really need it, those without family

to help them, or those who can’t

physically prepare their meals, eat

good food.

“And, trust me, I’m not doing this

alone. This is not a one man show.

It’s a team effort and 100 per cent


“It’s just amazing that God is

making this work.”

“I always said I’d keep

cooking as long as donations

came in, and they rolled in

week after week from churches,

individuals, businesses… so

many contributed.”

Mr. Morkin

My wife has been a grade one or

two teacher for 30 years now and will

retire sometime soon. That’s one of

the reasons why I had to start this

magazine now… I couldn’t very well

tell her I was going to start a new

major project weeks after she

finally has the time to relax. It’s

not uncommon to meet up with

her former students, many of

whom are parents themselves

now, and hear them say how she

was their favourite teacher ever.

I don’t imagine anything warms a

teacher’s heart more than that.

I’ve had a few favourite teachers over

the years as I’m sure we all have, but the

one I think back to now was not a teacher

at all but the principal at Sacred Heart in

Port Lambton sometime around 1978.

His name is Bill Morkin. Apparently I was

a kindergarten dropout, but I learned to

love elementary school after that. The

next eight years were spent with the same

classmates. My own grade was never split

up, and while new kids came in from time

to time, I only remember one ever leaving.

In a school this size you blend in pretty

seamlessly after a while, or at least I think

you do—I never lived their experience.

I don’t remember who the principal

was before Mr. Morkin came along and

no one could compare to him afterward.

He had a kind, wise face that was fatherly

but also very confident, and very much in

charge. This was a time when patriarchs on

television would’ve been Michael Landon

on the “Little House on the Prairie,” Mr.

Cunningham on “Happy Days” or Pa

Walton on “The Waltons,” and maybe that

played a role in seeing a friendly father

figure as a leader that you could really

trust and look up to. Or maybe it was that

Robin Williams was all the craze as “Mork

from Ork” and their names were similar

in a kid-friendly way. Who knows?

The strangest thing that I ever did in

school (though there is a vast collection to

choose from) happened one day when Mr.

Morkin passed by me in the hallway and

winked at me. I was a kid and didn’t know

what that meant, so I spit on him. I have

no idea what possessed me. He calmly

called me into his office and set me back

on the right path, while I’m sure many

others would have been much harsher.

The most amazing thing about Mr.

Morkin, however, was the annual school

play. He worked tirelessly and engaged the

entire school to put on large productions

in the neighbouring parish hall including

lights, sound, set designs, singing and

plenty of amateur acting. Some of the

Lambton County’s oldest

& only independent

family shoe store.

By Mark Moran, Welcome to The Club

most unlikely kids in that school took part,

and played critical roles, in productions

like “A Christmas Carol,” “Oliver Twist”

and “Jesus Christ Superstar.” I was in all of

them and I loved to sing. In Oliver Twist I

won the part of the Artful Dodger and sang

the parts for Oliver as well, in an English

accent to boot, because Kenny Johnson

didn’t want to sing. I brought the accent

back out for the role of Tiny Tim, and those

first opportunities to entertain people

have never left me. I am a professional

musician and play in a band to this day. I

can’t imagine the hours that must’ve gone

into those productions, that like so many

other teachers passions, fit under the title

of extracurricular activities. Eventually Mr.

Morkin was moved to another school and

brought his leadership and his productions

to a new set of deserving students.

Many years later when my sons Ben

and Dylan were attending Holy Rosary in

Wyoming, their principal was Bill Nelson.

He brought similar productions to their

school gym and now, much older and

more experienced, I was able to help

him with some of the lighting and sound.

While working on one of the productions,

I mentioned that I had taken part in plays

like this as a child and expressed to him just

how much it meant to me and how much

I thought of my old principal Mr. Morkin.

He smiled and said he knew Bill very well,

that Bill Morkin was his mentor and the

reason he was bringing these productions

to a new generation of students. As much

as I play music for crowds, I’ve been far too

busy for far too long to find myself back on

the stage acting. Maybe one of these days

I’ll wind things down enough to rediscover

a love that was instilled in me by one of

the finest educators I’ve ever met. To the

best of my knowledge, Bill Morkin and his

wife Maureen, also an educator, are still

Lambton County residents. If you happen

to see them, please say hello, and thank

"Well, then you wont have to spend

You can even do your shopping online.

so excited about initiating him into

He asked "If I do that, I won't have

He said, ''Since I entered this bank

today, I have met four of my friends, I

have chatted a while with the staff who

know me very well now. You know I

am retired... this is the company that

I need. I like to get ready and come

to the bank. I have enough time, it is

the physical contact that I crave. Two

years back when I got sick, the store

owner from where I buy fruit came to

see me and sat by my bedside. When

your mom fell down a while back while

on her morning walk, our local grocer

saw her and immediately got his car to

rush her home as he knows where we

live. And your brother worked at that

store to make his way through college.

Would I have that 'human' touch if

everything became online? Why would

I want everything delivered to me and

force me to interact with

just my computer? I like

to know the person that

I'm dealing with and not

just any 'seller.' It creates

bonds of relationships.

Does Amazon deliver all

this as well?"

Needless to say, his words

helped me realize that

technology isn't life. It's

better to spend time with

people than devices.

In Praise of the Cookie

By Corrina Austin, St. Thomas

from Daytriipping March-April 2013

My mother used to make sugar

cookies. If she could get them out of the

oven on time, they were these melty,

sweet, buttery things. Most often, they

were as black as hockey pucks on the

bottom. The oven wasn’t very good,

and she would often get busy doing

other things and forget to take them

out. My brother and sister and I would

pinch large clumps of dough out of the

bowl when she was mixing them up.

Cookie dough… why is it always better

than the actual cookie? My mother lost

the recipe for her sugar cookies and I’ve

tried many recipes over the years, trying

to duplicate it. But, as of right now, the

search is still on.

Mom did not like to cook or bake.

It wasn’t her thing. She’d rather empty

the china cabinet and clean it all out, or

dig a garden. I loved to bake. It was my

desperate childhood wish to get an Easy

Bake Oven. Instead, my mother bought

me cake mixes and let me use the real

one. Every Saturday morning, I got out

of bed, went straight to the kitchen, and

made a cake.

I baked my own fruit cake for my

wedding. In older days (older than

mine), this was a common custom, to

give out fruit cake slices as wedding

favours. When it was “cured,” I cut

the cake into slices and wrapped them

in shiny red and green paper (I was

married four days before Christmas) and

trimmed each piece like a Christmas

gift, complete with a thank you tag. I

procured my husband’s grandmother’s

Rain on the roof with a sound like singing,

And here in the kitchen is something nice,

Patterned with flour and nuts and raisins,

Sprinkled with sugar, fragrant with spice.

Little boy’s round eyes stare at the oven,

Little dog’s tail goes thump on the floor,

Little boy’s hand goes tug at your apron,

It’s hours till lunch–please, just one more?

Crisp and warm with a fragrance of cinnamon,

One like a heart and one like a star…

Rain on the roof with a sound like singing,

Mother is filling the cookie jar.

Says it all, doesn’t it?

much-guarded recipe for light fruit cake

for the occasion. We still make it every

Christmas, almost 28 years later.

I’m certainly not a fancy baker–

fondant scares the heck out of me, and

my pastry is a nightmare. I bake simply:

coffee cakes, brownies, and cookies.

Lots of cookies. My recipes for Toll

House and peanut butter cookies are

etched on my brain–I haven’t used a

recipe for them in years.

I have a friend who keeps a beautiful

glass cookie jar on her kitchen counter,

always stocked with homemade

cookies. A few weekends ago, I went

and bought one for my house, and it’s

been kept full ever since. I love this

idea. It seems old-fashioned, but I like

the idea of people coming home after a

long day and smelling cookies baking.

I know it’s very 1950’s, but it seems

like a nice way to be welcomed home.

“Hi! I made cookies today.” Now, there’s

a way to get a tired, grumpy person to


Several years ago, someone gave

me an old brown cookbook from 1948

that they’d found in the back of a

drawer somewhere, published by a local

“Friendship Group.” The cover is so

faded I can hardly make out the letters

any more. It has recipes for everything

under the sun: “Steamed Ginger

Pudding,” “Under the Sea Salad,” “Ice-

Box Rolls,” “Husband Cake,” “Bachelor

Buttons,” “Apple Pan Dowdy,” “Jellied

Tongue,” “Nobility Sauce”–even “Cold

Saccharin Pickles.” There is even a

section for household concoctions, like

“How to Fill Floor Cracks” and “Mustard

Plaster.” While I’ve never attempted

to fix things around the house or

create home remedies 1948 style, I

have tried several recipes from this

book, and they’ve all been delicious.

The “Apple Pudding” and “Seven Day

Sweet Pickles” (made in my husband’s

grandfather’s old sauerkraut crock) have

been especially successful.

My favourite part of the old brown

recipe book is near the front, before

the recipes: a quaint, reminiscent poem

called “Kitchen Chant.” I’ve googled it

many times, and I’ve never come up

with an author.

Fall in the Garden

is Fabulous & Fresh

Courtesy of

Sipkens Nurseries

My favorite time of year is

enjoying the transition in the

garden from fall to winter.

Watching the plants and

wildlife in the cooler

seasons can bring

much entertainment.

Taking the cue from

nature, slowing down and

preparing for cooler seasons is a

great lesson for each of us.

You might find that the fall is less

flowery than spring and summer, but

if you slow down to observe, the subtle

changing of colours will lead into

a one last flare up before becoming

dormant for winter.

Listening to the birds as they

gather to make their journeys south,

cleaning out the last of summer’s

bounty from the vegetable garden,

relocating falling leaves to the garden

or compost from the yard, can be

enjoyed if you take the time to slow

down instead of feeling rushed to get

things done.

The things I like to do in the fall to

winter slow down are:

1) Remove all vegetation from the

veggie garden and add compost and

manure so the gardens are ready for


2) Plant seed garlic (use straw or

leaves to mulch for the winter).

3) Instead of bagging all your leaves,

mulch with your lawn mower as much

as possible to return the energy to the

lawn or gardens.

4) Put out feed for the birds

migrating and the ones moving here

for the winter - sunflower heads or

corn cobs hanging in the garden are

sure to delight the birds (or squirrels).

If you provide a reliable source of feed

and seeds, many birds will call your

garden home for the winter months.

5) Leave a ‘wild’ area in your garden

for overwintering beneficial insects to

call home and leave stems of spent

flowers and grasses to shelter these

until spring.

6) There is still time to add a few

winter interest plants to your outdoor

gardens such as red stem dogwoods

and evergreen plants.

7) As your fall flowering mums

finish out October, transition your

planters to winter cut greenery and

stems to keep your home looking

welcoming to your friends and family.

ill and the project was

Puddle Duck

put on hold.

By Tammy With Kenneth took the

project to his home in

from Daytripping Sept-Oct 2021 issue Toronto, but despite his

desires, he never got

around to finishing the

project. As an adult,

Ritchie took the pieces

with the hope to someday

finish the project with his

son Gregory. The pieces

moved several times

across Southwestern

During the early months of the Covid

19 pandemic, my father in law and I

enjoyed the sun and sounds of children

playing in our backyard. During one of

our afternoon tea dates, my father in

law, Ritchie, mentioned a project he and

his father had started back in 1945 when

he was 10 years old. It was a 6 foot long

rowboat to act as a tender to his family’s

boat, the “Black Duck.” They used the

boat each summer to get to their cabin on

Georgian Bay. Kenneth, Ritchie’s father,

felt they would benefit from having a

smaller boat to act as a tender, so he

purchased a pattern from a boat building

catalogue and enlisted the help of his son

to build it. The duo took the project as far

as cutting out the pieces and creating the

frame before Kenneth’s youngest child fell

Ontario before they settled in Wyoming,

Ontario with Kenneth, his son Gregory

and his young family.

When Ritchie told me the story I knew

this was something that needed to be

completed. Ritchie was now 84 years old,

so I asked if I could lead this project to

completion. He was delighted to hear of

my interest and encouraged me to enlist

my husband and four young children as

helpers in the project.

That afternoon I had my husband

retrieve the pieces from our garage attic

and the next afternoon the seven of us

took to the back yard to make Kenneth’s

vision come to life.

As we worked our way through the

pattern we realized that we were missing

several pieces of the frame as well as all of

60 might be the new 40, but 9 pm is the new midnight.

the written directions needed to complete

the build. All we had was a couple of

diagrams and the original catalogue to

guide us. We decided that rather than

scrap the project that we would use a

more modern method of boat building

to construct it, as building another form

was something we found very daunting.

We settled on using the stitch and glue


For the first few days my children

enjoyed working on the project, but as

happens with children, they became

uninterested in the project. From then on

I chose to work on the project each day

when my younger children were having

their afternoon nap. It was a slow process,

but steadily throughout the summer, I

managed to put the boat together.

Once the plywood was stitched

together, I enlisted the help of my father, a

professional fiberglasser to teach me how

to fiberglass the outside of the boat. My

father and I spent two weekends adding

layers of fiberglass and sanding the boat.

Working on this project with my father is

something that I will remember as one

of the most special moments he and I

have spent together. Once the sanding

was complete I painted the boat bright

yellow, added white gunnels with oar

locks and painted the interior white. All

that remained was the addition of a name

on the stern. Kenneth had named the

boat “Puddle Duck” when he started the

project, a name that suited her perfectly

with her bright yellow paint.

After 74 years and several trips on land,

Puddle Duck took her first voyage afloat

at the end of the summer. We gathered as

a family at A.W. Campbell Conservation

Area in Alvinston to watch her maiden

voyage. Richie said a few words in honour

of his father and christened Puddle Duck

with a splash of sparkling cider. My

husband and our son Sawyer were the

first to take a ride around the pond. I could

see the sheer delight in Ritchie’s face as

he watched his son paddle along.

I like to think Kenneth was looking

down on us that day as we paddled

along. He would have loved to see the joy

we all took in the tiny little boat he had

started as a young father. Puddle Duck

will be passed along to our children when

they become parents in the hope of her

becoming a family heirloom.

The summer of isolation was hard,

but having a project like this made it a

little more manageable. Had we not been

in lockdown, I likely would have found

distraction in other things, and maybe

Puddle Duck would have spent another

generation in pieces. It was a great

honour to be part of such an important

family legacy.

Welcome to ... FALL 2021

A little girl unkindly spread,

bad rumours of a friend.

But thought about it later and

thought she should make amend.

She went to Mom and asked for help.

Some Motherly advice.

Mother listened close then said,

“That really wasn’t nice.”

“If you want to make things right again,

then take this tiny sack.

Place the seeds along the sidewalk,

to your friends house and back.”

A Lesson In Life

By Joanne vanDam, Lucknow

From Daytripping Sept-Oct 2016

“Seeds representing ‘Friendship’ that

you wanted to see grow,

until you spread those rumours.

Now, let’s see how this will go.”

The little girl walked down the street

with the tiny little sack.

Placed friendship seed along the walk

to her friends door and back.

Ran back and told her Mother,

of the work that she had done.

Then Mother said, “Now, go on back

and pick up every one.”

So, out she went, with sack in hand,

to pick up every seed and

to get her friend’s forgiveness for,

her nasty little deed.

But, her seed & friendship, all were gone.

Of them there was no trace.

And any seeds the birds had missed?

A weed grew in it’s place.

Old Memories, New Beginnings

One last look, one last walk, I was

leaving my beloved home behind. The

last few months had been heartbreaking

and hectic. The unexpected death of my

husband of 54 years, a home invasion,

the disemboweling of sheds, the heartwrenching

disbursement of household

items, all culminating in this moment.

Goodbye cherished gardens, a home

swollen with treasured memories, a

woodland housing ten acres of native

trees, flowers and songbirds. I was in

despair, I was moving to a senior’s

community in the City of Sarnia.

One first look, one first walk, I was

strolling through my new home, all

one thousand and eighty square feet.

Everything was sterile, no memories

lingered here. Hello little yard, barren

except for the newly laid sod. Well,

helloooo huge deck. Absorbing the

sound of cars whizzing by, planes flying

overhead and the blaring of the train

whistle down the road, I closed my eyes

and longed for the peace and tranquility,

now gone, but never to be forgotten.

However, I did have one consolation

and companion —my Jack Russell terrier,

Jackson. He would also have to adapt to

By Betty Popelier, Sarnia

our new surroundings. No longer having

free reign over a vast territory, now a

leash would limit his every movement.

I must say he adjusted admirably and

seemed to enjoy peering out the living

room window every time a movement

was sensed.

The first few months were difficult

as the move was made in July, and

the hard clay ground refused to yield

to my shovel. Sadly, the little gardens

I envisioned would be postponed until

the following spring. It was going to be

a long summer.

A gazebo that my wonderful daughter

and son in law erected on the huge

deck, and a kindly neighbour, was my

salvation that first distressing year.

Many a warm, hazy afternoon was

spent basking, drink and book in hand,

under the awning of my cozy outdoor

living area. On one of those afternoons I

looked up to see a woman approaching.

She introduced herself as Maggie, a

nearby neighbour. After a friendly chat

she handed me a brochure, and this was

an introduction into a world I thought I

knew, but would be proven wrong.

Lambton Wildlife Inc., an organization

Welcome to ...

dedicated to bringing those with a love of

nature together by means of excursions,

presentations and preservation. That

was me, I loved nature... after all, I had

spent the last 45 years living in the

country, surrounded by 10 acres of bush.

I gave great consideration to becoming

a member, and looked forward to my

first excursion.

The initial outing was viewing the

garden of a landowner within the city

limits. There, wildflowers and shrubs,

native to our environment abounded,

defying the urban setting surrounding

them. I was momentarily transported

back to my treasured, former home.

I was also, for the very first time, to

become more attune and aware of

Mother Nature’s natural beauty.

Since joining this dedicated

organization I have grown to appreciate

and value our environment, gone on a

fungi foray where, in one small forest,

a multitude of these fungi thrive. I have

learned how to identify a leafless tree,

just by examining its bark, but also

appreciating the life and beauty emitting

from the leaves on its branches. I look

at birds in a whole new light, listen for

Love Jen -

P.S. for much less than

a retirement home!

It doesn’t matter how old you are, life is always better

when you’re home. There’s a deep comfort that comes

from being in familiar surroundings, sleeping in your own

bed, and living under a roof that belongs to you.

Welcome to ... FALL 2021

The other day a young person asked

me how I felt about being old. I was taken

aback, for I do not think of myself as old.

Upon seeing my reaction, she was

immediately embarrassed, but I explained

that it was an interesting question, and I

would ponder it, and let her know.

Old age, I decided, is a gift.

I am now, probably for the first time

in my life, the person I have always

wanted to be. Oh, not my body! I

sometime despair over my body -

the wrinkles, the baggy eyes and the

sagging butt. And often I am taken

aback by that old person that lives in

my mirror, but I don’t agonize over

those things for long.

I would never trade my amazing

friends, my wonderful life, my

loving family for less gray hair or

a flatter belly. As I’ve aged, I’ve

become more kind to myself and

less critical of myself. I’ve become

my own friend. I don’t chide myself

for eating that extra cookie, or for

not making my bed, or for buying

that silly cement gecko that I didn’t

need, but looks so avante garde on

my patio. I am entitled to overeat,

to be messy, to be extravagant. I have seen

too many dear friends leave this world too

soon; before they understood the great

freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it if I choose to read

until 4:00 am and sleep until noon? I will

dance with myself to those wonderful

tunes of the 50’s & 60’s, and if I, at the

same time, wish to weep over a lost love,

I will. I will walk the beach in a swim suit

that is stretched over a bulging body and

will dive into the waves with abandon if I

choose to, despite the pitying glances from

the bikini set. They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful. But

there again, some of life is just as well

forgotten and I eventually remember the

important things. Sure, over the years my

heart has been broken. How can your

heart not break when you lose a loved

one, or when a child suffers, or even

when a beloved pet gets hit by a car?

But broken hearts are what give us

strength and understanding and

compassion. A heart never broken is

pristine and sterile and will never know

the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long

enough to have my hair turn gray and

to have my youthful laughs be forever

etched into deep grooves on my

face. So many have never laughed

and so many have died before their

hair could turn silver. I can say “no”

and mean it. I can say “yes” and mean

it. As you get older, it is easier to be

positive. You care less about what other

people think. I don’t question myself

anymore. I’ve even earned the right

to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being

old. It has set me free. I like the person I

have become. I am not going to live forever,

but while I am still here, I will not waste

time lamenting what could have been, or

worrying about what will be. And I shall

eat dessert every single day.

Publishers note: I read a suitable quote in

an article by Eileen Cade-Edwards to sum

this all up. It went “May your life bring just

enough clouds, to produce a perfect sunset.”

Diabecs, Ingrowns, Corns, Warts,

Fungus & other common foot problems

I hated those rotten kids. Looking back,

maybe I was being a little heavy on them,

but at the time I felt quite within my rights.

You see, there were just two kinds of families

and they were part of the other kind.

I grew up in the east end of London,

Ontario, in the Ealing School area, and it

wasn’t exactly what you could call a hothouse

raising. Our summer feet never knew

the meaning of the word shoes and our

favourite playground was the Egerton Street

city dump. No, not a sanitary landfill site,

just a plain old city dump. Needless to say,

our boyhood ways produced a fair number

of war wounds and this brings us to the


Mv father, who referred to himself as the

Old Man and was affectionately referred

to by the same term, was tough. During

his life, he knew only two kinds of work,

- steel and construction. On my birth

certificate, dated just after the First World

War, his occupation was listed as “rougher,”

a person who, with hand tongs, fed red hot

steel through the rolls at the London Rolling

Mills. During the last half of the Twenties, he

worked construction - bricklayer, plasterer,

and carpenter. In his book, there was only

one remedy for cuts and scratches and if it

didn’t hurt, it wasn’t any good. We were an

“iodine” family.

Even the look of the iodine bottle

presented quite a spectacle. The bottle was

brown, matching the colour of its contents.

It always had a rubber cork (any other type

would dissolve) with a glass dip stick to

apply the remedy. The Old Man could never

be bothered with the dip stick. He held the

cut open with one hand, with the other he

poured a dollop from the bottle right into

the cut uttering the consoling words, “There,

kid, that ought to fix it.”

Even the label was one to remember. It

was usually well stained and pictured the

Jolly Roger above the plainly printed word

POISON. As I recall, it came in several

strengths and the Old Man always bought

the best, the large economy size that

improved with age and as it neared the

bottom of the bottle, there was no doubt

about it.

As a kid, I would have enjoyed a little

sympathy on some of those occasions, but

the summer tan mixed with a little dirt was

a matched colour for iodine and besides,

the Old Man wasn’t one to waste things.

He poured the remedy into the cut. There

was no free advertising. Sympathizers never

knew we were wounded, but we did, when

the Old Man applied the cure.

Then there were the other families. Their

kids came to school with their whole knees

painted vermillion red. They might as well

have carried signs reading “I hurt myself.”

These kids were from “mercurochrome”

families. They were usually rich kids. They

wore shoes and dressed like the kids in the

Eatons catalogue. Their families must have

been doctors or lawyers or owned a corner

grocery store. They probably owned cars

too, and had a radio at home with a loud

speaker and I hated them. I didn’t know too

much about mercurochrome. It sure looked

good and you could see it a block away.

Then it happened.

I was running down a street in a section

of better homes than ours, when I stubbed

my big toe. It was a dandy. I peeled off

most of the tread and some of the meat.

The blood started dripping and I started

to hobble home on my heel when lady

luck came to my rescue. Two nice little old

ladies from the verandah of a two-storey red

brick house took me in tow. They took me

into their kitchen and washed my foot in

warm water they got right out of the tap.

Then came the mercurochrome. I gritted

my teeth and took a firm grip on the chair.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. There was no

pain and they put plenty on, even on the

outside of the bandage. I liked that. They

gave me milk and fancy cookies. We never

had either at home. The milk at home was

just for tea.

As I limped home I knew there were just

two kinds of families - “iodine” families and

“mercurochrome” families, and ours was an

“iodine” family. And the “mercurochrome”

families? I hated them, yes I hated those

kids; imagine all that sympathy and no pain.

But as I look back, I have no regrets.

You see, we had something else. We had

love and we had the Old Man, and he was

something else. He was terrific.
