Acknowledgements: The author would like to thank the following people: Val Nicholson, for her assistance; June Thompson, dressmaker; and Shirley Gobiel, who encouraged me to write the original stories for the CBC.
Author’s note: Some of the people are real; some exist only in my imagination. And while some of the stories are based on actual events, others come from “mind-the-time” exchanges at family gatherings or from my mother’s remembrances.
