In May, our minister at Walton, Rev. Gill, made it a point during Sunday morning announcements to assure the congregation that he still lives in the same location.
The manse that he lives in is not the original manse. Due to the original one’s location, they sold it as they were able to make money on the sale, buy a new manse and still have money left over.
But when the City wanted to keep the old manse (it’s an historical building now), they moved the building and then sold the land for a new development. However, the newspaper article about the move made it sound like Rev. Gill moved too.

I have so may school memories! When I think back, my memories are all tied to a teacher!
Kindergarten – Miss Brooks
No specific memory jumps out, but I probably remember her because she was my first teacher.
Grades 1 and 2 – Mrs Smith
I had Mrs Smith for 2 years. She is the one who introduced me to Shel Silverstien. I also remember her bringing her cat into our classroom and her giving us birthday spanks (Can’t imagine either of those things happening these days!)
Grade 3 – Mr Cashmere
He let my friend, Shannon, and I do our work sitting under our desks. We had created mailboxes that were on top of the desk and we insisted that if anyone wanted to talk to us the had to leave us a note! That was also the year that Shannon and I choreographed a dance routine to “Eye of the Tiger”
Grade 5 – Mr Zavitz
He read us Jacob Tutu and the Hooded Fang.
Grade 8 – Miss Barclay
Miss Barclay was my homeroom teacher. She was very funny. A lot of the kids in the school either loved her or hated her. She always gave you that little extra push to do your best and to work harder. I remember her taking her false teeth out in class one day. As the school librarian, she had Paul Kropp come into our school and he autographed some of his books.
Highschool – Mrs Wanless and Mr Gaines
Even though I didn’t continue studying music past high school, music was my life while I was at high school Mrs Wanless was my music teacher and choir director and Mr Gaines was also my music teacher and band director. They made music so much fun!

This is a claim that we don’t take lightly in our house. I have blogged before about Craig’s MSG-triggered migraines. We have used many “broths” and “mixes” in the past, with bad results. I was hopeful that Club House wasn’t going to let us down.
Sunday nights we like to have a good “family meal” with all the fixings! I grabbed the package of Club House Tuscan Chicken Flavourful Recipe Mix and checked what ingredients we needed…chicken, onion, red pepper, baby spinach and half and half. I had 3 of the 5. Spinach and half and half aren’t things we normally buy. No worries, I needed to do the shopping for the week anyway.
I started the roasted potatoes first and popped those in the oven.
Then I prepped all my ingredients.
I browned the chicken. Removed that and cooked the onions and peppers.
Add the milk, spices and put the chicken back in.
Toss in the spinach. Simmer for 20 minutes.
The potatoes were done at the same time!
Now, when the girls asked, I told them the spinach was lettuce. They ate it all up!
I’m looking forward to trying all of the other Club Club House Flavourful Recipe Mixes.
