I've said it before...
I'm so old I can remember when Disney had an original idea.

Of course repeating ones self is also sign of growing old.

I can remember nickel beer on fridays in the mens mess at RCAF Station Winnipeg (Frankville). When i joined the army at 16, I was paid the princely sum of $58 a month. Women weren't allowed in a bar without an escort.

Frank, most of the time it was too cold for snow. a brisk walk to school in -40 to -50 deg F was invigorating. We didn't have school buses in the Peg

You went to Gorden. That was only a 4 block walk from your house. :-))

I went to boarding school for 5 years. I had to walk down 2 flights of stairs and up a couple of hallways to the classroom, after J_wish mass. I still can't forgive my parents, but then they paid for it, not me.

Frank
You must have gone to St Myron's, you must be 50 or 51 years old. St Myron's was the only Cath**c/J***sh school in Winnipeg. I Remember every morning at assembly they'd sing OyVey Maria.

That's the one. I recall my brother getting his mouth washed out with soap there once (or twice), by "Sister Grade 2." Another time she punched me in the kisser because I was laughing (at her).

And, you know, in that boarding school nuns did always travel in pairs, but the odd time they traveled in 3s, which I believe was so one could keep watch. This is where I learned how to eat fast and develop my boarding house reach. Bryan, you know why they travel in pairs, don't you?

No Frank, pray tell us, why do Nuns travel in pairs?

No one has guessed my age yet.

Nickle beer at the wets was a good deal. For 50-60cents you could get sh!tfaced. There was always a Molsons or Labatts sales rep that would buy you a beer or two. the tobacco companies and the breweries took care of the troops big time.

They'd walk up and say"what beer do you drink son?" It was always what they were representing ;-) Anymore war stories and I'll have to get my helmet. A fellow could get shell shocked.

Why do nuns always travel in pairs? To make sure the other nun doesn't get none.

It's what you see on City TV Friday nights or what everyone wants on, "Lexx." It also rhymes with the name of that strange space show. I ain't sayin' no mo'.
