Born in the second-storey bedroom of his parent's big brick Victorian home in Port Arthur (Thunder Bay), Old Bob recalls his childhood and the coolness of his mother's hands that were the result of her upbringing by the Barnardo Institution in England.

He recalls the stressful times of the Great Depression as a child in the city, before moving to the country, where life for him and his family became more gratifying with happiness, and where the wilderness could provide more gratifying comfort and knowledge.

He remembers the War years and the flaming guns calling for all Canadian boys eighteen years of age and over. Then the post-war years of his life and romance, and the bitter-sweet of it, along with the raising of his children.

If you are a senior, you will identify with the times and, if you are of a younger generation, hopefully you will learn a wee bit from this story.
