The person I'm interviewing is Debby Shaw. She's my grammy. I think you'll like her background story.
She grew up in Scotch Village. When she went to school it had one room for all Students from grades Primary to 9.
Growing up was very different from the way we grow up now. One time in winter my grammy got pushed off a hen house and broke her arm on a sheet of ice.
I'm glad you enjoyed my story. I enjoyed researching it!
