The 40 Year Old Yearbook

Tomorrow I turn 40.

I’m looking for 40 people with 40 dollars for my 40th birthday. No Facebook wall greetings or comments on this post. I’d like it if you stepped up and helped Team Diabetes with a quick and easy $40 donation.

To give you a giggle while you click the link and make the donation, I present the 40 Year Old Yearbook.

Starting the day I was brought home from the hospital to the day earlier this month when I picked up Charles at the hospital, this is 40 years of my life:

Lake Bonavista Hockey Tournament, 1981-82

1980-81

Calgary is the home to some pretty memorable events in my life. Even before I packed up my family and came east, I had been to Cowtown and created some long lasting memories. I shot a national tv commercial here, ripped it up at Stampede and had the greatest moments in my hockey career in Calgary.

Lake BonavistaIn the spring of 1981 I bought a denim cowboy hat and came to Calgary to play in the Lake Bonavista Hockey Tournament. As goalie of the Richmond Rep B Whites we won the tournament that year, and the next. In the first year I was named an MVP.

Here’s the freaky part – some 28 years after that event not only do I still have some pictures from climbing around the new houses being built in Lake Bonavista, I also have the tournament trophy and MVP medal.

As we’re packing up our North Vancouver house for the move to Calgary, I found the box with my hockey trophies and had Zacharie pose with the awards.

Hopefully it’s not a Stanley Cup situation and in a few years, if we’re still in Calgary, he can play in the same tournament as his father and win the same awards.
