Today is the anniversary of my Gotcha Day on May 13, 1975. And today my brother Tyson is diary pick when accidentally Tabatha’s diary is in Tyson’s diary! Who did it; I think my Dad made the mistake!
My Dad thought about me Friday night. He was in Chatham, Ontario Friday night which is where he lived in a basement apartment when he got me May 13, 1975. Many of the photos of me on my page were taken in that basement apartment – I’m sitting in the window, on the couch, the chair, and so on. Of course I lived with him when he moved to two other cities afterwards, and was still with him when he returned to Chatham in 1987.
Friday night he was in Chatham to go to the funeral home of a theatre friend who died at the age of 81. Dad did community theatre with this man and his wife. It was nice for him to see his theatre friends who were also there.
As he was leaving Chatham he drove past his old apartment and drove into the driveway and parked where he used to park – in front of the window of his old apartment. Teens were roaming around so he did not get out of the car but he did want to go into the lobby and get the feel of the old place again.
But by just driving down the street in that area he used to live in, and into the parking lot, he had the old feelings of his theatre friends he did shows with, from 1975 to 1981 while living here, and feelings of me and him together, at a time in the past.
Thank you my Catster friends for pretty gifties and nice comments and pawmails. Tundra, Rory, Manytoes & Lynzee made me a special photo for my page - in Dramatic Theatre Colors – we love it!
Love Georgina xo
