Comments:

Worked at shit jobs for a few years after high school and drank beer. Enrolled at U of Waterloo but dropped out in first year because I got involved in the student paper and finally found my passion. Spent the next 25(ish) years as a reporter, editor and publisher in community papers in SW Ontario and suburban papers in Vancouver.
Am now retired.

School Story:

Foreshadowing my life, I was a 'tweener in high school. I'm class of '76, but after Gr 9 I figured since we only needed 27 of 32 credits (or something like that), I might as well take courses from a year ahead. So after a couple of years I was in more of your classes than my own year's. In my Gr 13 I only needed 2 credits, so lots of time for extracurriculars. Mind by then most of you lot had left so the Lounge got kinda dull.

World-famous ice cream, apparently, in Parkgate (NW England, 2012). Tough to see me in my camo so I'm pointing myself out.

Shopping for outdoor wear at the big and tall store. g/f rolls her eyes and says she can't take me anywhere, but as I pointed out, I actually drove so she's technically wrong.

Also, it's not ME taking the picture :)
