    When I was in high school, Maria & I would stop at the Jewish bread bakery in Rathdowne St. the front door was never locked, we would pop in, we bought an onion roll each, which we ate for breakfast, on the way to school.
    I can still smell them sometimes.

    Harry Shuhtel was my best & only friend when I was 8, we played cowboys & read his comics together. We tried a caterpillar zoo in a shoe box, but they all died we had killed them, somehow, we felt guilty for a while.
    Arnold Zabel went to the same high school as me, after school, he would walk down Lygon St. with us sometimes .
    Esters mother & my mother were friends, they would talk, Ester would not wear a petticoat under her dress ( defiant/rebellious) & her mother was so upset & worried.
    Oh ! but that I should tell you the story of Mrs. Grotsky & her plight, you would not know what to think, I assure you.

    My mother spoke Polish/Italian/Yugoslavian & a bit of English.
    So did my father, his English was better, he spent time in a British prisoner of war camp, you see. He did not want to fight with the Germans.
    I speak several languages as a result of my parents bilingualness & association with my friends & neighbors, including the kids of today struggle to speak English properly.
    It's not that hard, really
