Lynn, just rereading the last few strips & comments - you are forgetting your North Van roots! St. Georges & St. Andrews are not "streets," they are "avenues" - they parallel Lonsdale Ave, the great "Main Street" of North Van. It's the numbered ones (1st, 2nd, 3rd etc) that are "streets" - and none of this Toronto nonsense of "3rd Street West/East", it's "West/East 3rd Street" thank you very much! I know both St. Georges & St. Andrews very well indeed, having grown up very close to them both, just further up the hill from you! Thanks for the great memories of hills of North Van!
Michelle, Rockies BCOK, Avenue! It's been so long since I lived at 249 East Fifth Street, I'd forgotten. I might have forgotten the exact names of the streets, Michelle...but the place is indelibly engraved in my memory. People, friends, schools, events - growing up in the 50's and 60's on a hillside that was often wet and always glorious with colour. Forgive me this error and give me credit for loving a place I will always call HOME! Lynn Johnston All this talk about hide and go seek has brought up a bad memory from about forty years ago. Y'see, I was in first grade and decided to hide in a sort of toy chest that was shaped like a cartoon frog. The idea was that I'd leap out. Didn't work out that way, though. They had to force the lid open after what seemed like forever. Long story short, I haven't liked enclosed spaces much ever since.

The car was John's prized 1962 "Bushwhacker" (see ID #s 9100 through 9105--August 2001--for the arc where John buys it from Gordon). What's curious about the splash image is that it's reversed--notice how Liz appears to be driving a UK car!
