I went over to my parents house today.  This is the house I grew up starting circa 1973. They are renovating again, and this is goodbye to the last memories of my old bedroom.

Off the side of my main bedroom, I had a small alcove for a desk. In this room I was allowed to paint, graffiti, and write phone numbers on the wall. Most of the “I love so and so has already been washed off, along with random telephone numbers. Whoever owned the phone number 477-7652, you’re the last number on the wall!

They are going to paint over the wall paintings I did when I was about 10-12 years old. They’ve been there a long time (approx. 1980-2013). Along with Disney’s Snow White characters, Dopey (although he looks Grumpy) and Happy, there is the magical rabbit and a **squirrel** in the upper left hand corner.

If you think there’s a chance I’m going to become mega bucks famous one day, call Heritage Canada ASAP, ’cause this sucker is about to be demo’d.
