That photo is wild!! It reminds me of when I was a kid and the parking lot at the train station was all dirt with no GO stuff there. We boarded the train bound for Quebec a few times in the late sixties and early seventies.

I remember when they built the GO station. I lived a five minute walk away at the time. My brother and I were very young (10 and 7, respectively) but we jumped on the train at the GO debut free ride opening. We probably shouldn't have. We arrived in dowtown Toronto and got off the train. A short time later we were unsure of which train to board or when. As the one train was about the close up, a guy greeted us and told us to board. He was a teenaged French guy from around the block that recognized us because his family knows my mother. Saved our butts.

Jeff,

The John Street bridge. I went through that bridge probably thousands of times on foot, bike and car. The sign once was graffitied to read "honk if your horny". There was a lady who cross-guarded the tunnell for the kids in the morning and after school. She lived in the neighbourhood too.

Cool story Mike. I used to catch the train when it was going through town late at night. The train had to slow down so me and some friends would run and climb on a box car ladder. Later when we were ready to go home we'd catch a train going the other way. Once got caught on the bridge over the credit.

Are you kidding me? You hitched rides?

Me and a friend when we were kids, 9 or 10, crossed the trussell over the credit in the hot sun. Halfway through we noticed a train coming, so we truned around and moved fast trying not to fall. We jumped off to the side when we reached the end of the bridge with about 10 seconds to spare. We were lucky.

If you go to the bridge you will notice an area were the bridge jets out (I guess for a workstation) with some railing. We didn't have time to get off the bridge so we got on that area and held for dear life. That bridge shook so bad I thought we were going to die. I never went near that bridge for some time. The person I was with was named David Campbell. I went to school with him and his twin brother Dean. Really cool guys.

Here's another one:

Because we lived at the Mushroom Plant, we had a lot of exploration possibilitites as boys. The plant was on top of the hill but halfway up the hill was a boiler building and two large rooms for storing soil and sand. These rooms were about 100 feet high which included a top compartment. The lower soil rooms when filled with soil contained huge mounds. We would sneak into the rooms and try to climb the mounds. It was incredibly unsafe. One time, me, my brother, and the French guy's younger brother got caught by my father and he scolded us.

Dean and Dave Campbell? Is one of them into body building? I think I know them. Do you know Blain Atwell?

If they are missing it's ok. I was just having some fun with the google posts. I know you have to clean up once in a while. I'm not mad Don. I'm just messing around. Don't spend too much time looking for the posts. I'm sure we'll make more! :D

Yes ... it did occur to me that perhaps Don was "sharing" some of his past "nefarious" deeds .. Only the Don Patrol knows. <cue "The Shadow" music>

You'd better get rid of that attitude mister. Or else you'll go in the corner for 10 seconds.

Corner, ten seconds? Geez, you tried to send me to a BOX and I bet you had a lot more than 10 seconds in mind. Some much for blood being thicker than water! :wink:
