Episode 300 – Eileen Gould McGinity – Our Mom is back on the show
Seanorama and FastFret have their mom on the show. Mom talks what it was like once she and Dad took on that first move away from home, where they travelled first to Winnipeg, then Montreal, (then Winnipeg again), Argentina, and Prince Albert. Mom and Dad lived life like a grand adventure and Mom has stories to tell.
Mom covers a lot of ground, and this is sprinkled with lots of stories of an infamous block party, the courage to leave their birthplace and the chances Dad had to take for our family. That first move to Winnipeg opened opportunities for Dad and opened the world for all of us.
(12:20) The move to Argentina was built on a lot of steps and the eventual move there changed the game for Mom and Dad. Mom has lots of stories of their time there, of the change in culture, language and way of life.
(30:08) Eventually, Mom and Dad moved back to Canada, which set up another series of adventures. The boys discuss the film they made they scared the daylights out of Mom that almost prompted an intervention.
(36:16) Next Dad was able to move onto a job in Florida while working remotely from Winnipeg, which included travel to South America in Chile and Brazil.
(42:52) The infamous story when Todd went missing and some other stories from New Brunswick, including late night visits from random strangers to our home in the middle of nowhere and other stories of back home, and the place Todd grew up in as a baby.
(52:48) Once upon a time, Mom and Dad were in a band called Pieces of Eight. Mom shares some memories of them and her other band Gentle Touch that used to perform at La Cave A Pape.
(57:04) During the summers, Todd and I would go to our uncle Paul and aunt Carole’s while dad worked the night shift. We share stories of Mom’s brothers (the Gould Brothers) and share some theories on our roots and patriarch of the Gould family, Bill.
Gang, this was a real fun time.
