    Notes 
    • (Tyndall Manitoba & Garson Manitoba are only 1/2 mile apart. Tynda ll is on the north side of the highway, Garson is on the south side of t he highway, they are "world" famous for the GARNITE ROCK - beauiful pi nk or white stone)

      To me my Grandparents were the very very best of people. They loved "al l" us grandkids, but seem to make each one of us feel we were their favori te.
      My Aunt's Doreen & Joey (Jo-Ann) are so like them, & they are the only t wo left of Grandma & Grandpa's family.
      We all grow up in Vermilion Bay, just a small town of about 400 peopl e, so we were a very close family. Each holiday we were at someone's hou se for the big "dinner". Aunt Joey lived in Dryden after she was marrie d, which is only 30 miles from Vermilion Bay, so we would spent lots of ti me with her too.

      My Grandparents lived in Garson, Man., until Aunty Doreen was about 11 yea rs olds.
      Grandpa owed & operated a garage. He was a very gifted mechanic & was alwa ys tinkering with small motors. From Garson they moved to Vermilion Bay, w ere Grandpa again had a garage, but in his later life he started the BAY T AXI service, I think he had it for about 9 or 10 years, before he sold i t. My Mom use to drive taxi for him. Grandma never drove a car at all in h er life that I know of.
      She was short, with the "barrel" figure, she made the most delicious short bread cookies, & if she had to give you a "slap", she would feel so bad, s he would get tears in her eyes.
      Grandpa was a real marshmallow! I can remember that Grandpa never raised h is voice. I have to tell you us "grandkids" were a trial, if one of us we re at Grandma's, them six more of us would show up. Anyway enough of that. .....
