Have you ever met someone that instantly inspires you?
Last year at my grandma's 90th birthday party I met my sister's partner, Rob Fuller for the first time... or Henry as we called him!
Have you ever been to a place where you feel like you are at home, even though you were not born there?
For the past eight summers we as a family have visited such a place.
way by Rainy River's Canada Day fireworks display this year!
I have seen and photographed many many years of fireworks shows and it is my opinion that this year's was the best ever!
Last Wednesday I found myself remembering the class of 1985's graduation.
It was 30 years ago (wow time flies!).
Father's Day this year was an extra special one for me!
I began my day by calling my dad, Irwin Johnston, who is now residing at the Long Term Care facility in Rainy River.
Have you found yourself "tractor watching?"
Now that the big dig is underway on Main Street in Rainy River I find myself flashing back to the mid-1970s when I was a young kid.
Hard work... it does the body good!
Do you remember camping as a kid and who taught you the skills you need to camp?
Over the weekend I found myself remembering my childhood and the things my dad taught me.
On Tuesday the Record gave some history to the Rainy River Public Library.
How is that we can forget the simplest of things at times and then remember others from long ago so vividly?
