50 YEARS AGO ! * August 20, 1954

Today it is exactly 50 years ago that my Mom, Dad and my older sister Ineke, had emigrated from Holland to Toronto.

Wow... time flies!

Sadly only my Mom can celebrate as my Dad passed away last February.

It’s really neat to think what Toronto might have looked like 50 years ago.
I remember my mom saying her first impression of Toronto was not the greatest, as she thought it looked very ugly with all the telephone poles lining all the streets, it looked cluttered and not pleasing to the eye.

I’m going over tonight to see Mom and bring her a celebratory meal to mark this special day !
