“I grew up as a kid in what they called the Dirty 30’s. The Depression. Nobody had any money. But we made our own fun. We played a lot of basketball and baseball, and in the winter time, making a circle in the snow, cut a couple of pathways, and played tag. Nearly all of our activities were in the Parkdale School yard. Everybody was in the same boat. I knew a couple of kids whose dads had good jobs. I don’t think we had high expectations. We just accepted. Never was anyone hungry. Ever. Nearly everyone had a big garden. Fresh veggies and everything.”
