Hello everyone
Shirley and I and my brother Ray, (and his wife Patti) just returned from a great weekend in Kingston, ON. It was arranged by Brat Bill Brown and his wife, Juanita. They did a great deal of work setting things up for us and it was a wonderful mini-reunion. Thanks, Bill & Juanita. Keep on keeping on and let us all know about any up-coming reunions. We'ed love to return to Shilo again. Also thanks to Otterkins.

I just had 24 great Shilo Brats to visit me in Kingston. I arranged for a 3 hour Thousand Island Boat ride. We had a great lunch on the boat,then we went back to the hotel they were all staying at. We mingle around chatting for a couple of hours and then had dinner at the hotel.
The next morning most of us got together for breakfast.
From the comments I heard from everyone they had a good time, I know I did. It is always nice to see Shilo Brats
When are you western and eastern brats going have a get together?

Hi, I'm 45 and I lived on the base until I was 9 years old. My family moved just as my 3rd grade ended. I have many fond childhood memories of Camp Shilo and Waggle Springs. No one here believes me when I say there was a place there with sand dunes called the Carbery Dessert!(forget the spelling but I rember the sand!)I love your site. Keep up the memories!

Ken - Zoe - Bill ..........Sure does bring back memories doesn't it! Oh, by the way Bill, believe it or not, (not saying I'm a pack rat) but I still have all of my 45 records. Plus I still have my dolls and a teddy bear that I got from my parents in Hemer, Germany when I was 7 yrs plus I also saved all the books my parents ever bought me (which I saved for my only daughter to read and now they are in her hands for my 3 grandchildren). Guess I am a pack rat, but it's nice that I saved this stuff to pass down! Take care everyone!

Kathie, Ken & Zoe: Now I remember that I got $1.00 weekly allowance on Fridays which was plenty. Get on the bus to Brandon on Sat. morning--go to that record shop that was on Rosser...can't remember the name..anyway, buy the latest 45 record..catch the bus back to Camp...go to strange Hall--shoot a couple of games of pool or go bowling...go back after supper to the movie for 25 cents..maybe go for a swim too. We were rich!!

Hi Kathy,
I've seen this many times. One day I sent it to my 28 yr old son.. thought he would get it.. he didn't! Came back with.. what's this? I don't get it.
So... if my kids don't understand and believe it, my grandkids sure won't.
It is truly amazing how fast the world is turning since we lived that life.
Does anyone remember Elmer the elephant?

Thanks for that Kathie,

Last year when I was 58, I recounted to my mother's grandaughter that when I was growing up in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia the house my family rented was only thirty-two dollars a month. We cooked on a wood burning stove, with the wood pile taking up the back yard. The ice wagon would come around every day and the man would hand chip a block of ice to fit the ice box, and I used to help the milkman in the morning when he delivered fresh milk in glass bottles with his horse drawn milk wagon. I was five at the time.
Six years later when we moved to Shilo, every Saturday at the Ubique theatre a movie, popcorn and a drink were twenty-five cents total. When the theatre moved to Strange Hall, the movie price jumped to a quarter alone, but hey it was a brand new theatre. Two years later when the price jumped to a whopping forty cents, there was a huge public outcry and everyone threatened to pay with pennies.
Haircuts were twenty-five cents, hamburger, fries and a drink were a quarter, bus rides to Brandon were FREE! and priceless, for everything else there was (oops) no Mastercard!
