When I was about 13, I took a bus from Orillia to Montreal with a friend to see the Canadiens for my first time. It was the original Forum before it was renovated in 1968, there were pillars throughout that caused obstructed views, and I remember thinking that I was glad I wasn’t sitting behind one. I also took a picture of Toe Blake’s Tavern on Ste. Catherine, which is now long gone. (The tavern, not the street.)
On the bus ride back to Orillia, much older guys were passing booze around and when my dad picked me up at the bus station, I was drunk. And he didn’t say one word about it.
