  • Notes 
    • When I was a kid, I spent most of my time at the curling rink in the winter with my parents. I knew Lorne & Madelaine from curling circles. Lorne was an avid curler and Madelaine would watch his games and bring her lapdog with her. I was fascinated by the dog. Lorne always had a treat for me and my friend Jean who also spent many hours at the curling rink with her parents. The treat was usually a chocolate bar or a pop out of the pop machine. They were always so kind to us.
