Avryle Wilson remembers winter traditions with the kids.
Avryle Wilson sits in side a house in front of a sideboard with candles on it. Her hands are folded in front of her.
[AVRYLE WILSON] As years went by we kind of raised each others kids if you will like if I had to go somewhere somebody on the street was going to be able to look after mine, and whatever and we had [raises hand] a telephone pole just off, so I had a nice long line for clothes drying and in the winter time, Doug would clear that whole…we had
a nice big back yard [moves hands to symbolize open space] and he’d clear it all out and build up the banks and when then the cold came, he started building a rink. We put a light on the clothes-line and we’d roll it out to the right to the middle so the kids could play hockey. So, we were always able to have them around and so that just became a tradition. And our three yards there were never fences between us.
