Great, good work, well represented. The pictures of course add a lot. They help you get into the ambiance. Have read about 2/3 of the book and will read the rest + look at all the photos.

You have to book a visit to the Today Show and get an interview with Matt Lauer here in states...after that then the talk show circuit on late night television and you`ll be golden....

S.D.    <My comment: Said in jest but nice ☺)

I went to your site and I found it quite well done, not to mention   interesting.  Because I did not reside in the Dorval area when I   was in high-school, I always felt somewhat distance from the out of school life which you fellows enjoyed.  Your site helps me understand things better.  Nice.

Great undertaking Mike - congratulations!

In the Chapter about dental school _ just wondering if you meant the Strathcona building instead of the Leacock building ? It's a great book, Mike.

I could have easily run into you Mike and not have known it.I back-packed it alone all through Europe in 1970.Met a lot of bummed out American GIs in Amsterdam who were trying to forget Vietnam with Maryjane (which was smoked openly in Dam Square)  Great memoirs Mike. Fun to read.

Hi Mike, I have been reading your book and I can whole heartedly say that I am really enjoying it.  Great stuff!

GF

Good book, Mike.  Really enjoyed reading it.

  I have started reading and also forwarded the email to my father, LJ the founder of B.H.C
I visited Cyprus 8 years ago where I married and honeymooned for a month there, so that part especially is interesting to me.
I will continue to read when I have more time on my hands. :)
Thank you for the email,

KJ

 You've done a nice job with your book.  Very interesting.

I started to read it yesterday, I'm really enjoying it so far :)

    • tried to get to damascus last june - totally pissed at my cruise company which cancelled the stop just a month before the sailing date. just not fair - the fighting at that time was way outside of the city. we could have visited with no problem. of course, i might be a bit more brave than many of the other pax. :))

      My comment>>Probably wise move sadly :( look at the faces of the kids on the Syria page ..young and having fun, now in their 40's and who know what they have endured :(

       

 

Love your book, so informative and sometimes it made me cry and other times made me laugh out loud

C.M.

I have started to read your writings. Plan to print them, put them in a binder

Great job mike. The pics bring back the memories. Haven't read it all just Mexico and Spain. I remember well the electrical generator in the pub-macho men. Also the fact that if there was one balloon man or widget seller, there were a hundred- anyway to make a living. Bombing with the water balloons was fun too , as well as the bartering on the beach and them callin us "esta loco" when we gave too low a bid. And of course backing up over my wooden masks and calendar at the airport and ending up with 1000 aztec tootpicks. The low lite was I think when you had a bout of Montezuma's revenge at the bottom of the La Quebrada? stairs- a long way up back.
You have a phenomenal memory of all the happenings. When I have more time , I will peruse the other chapters.
Great leagacy you have going with the e book. Hasta luego, Pablo

"had a kick-ass seafood meze lunch in limassol on the boulevard next to the beach. fun."

It was a pleasure to chat with you this morning on my walk with Stella. Thanks very much for passing me your card--I've just spent some very enjoyable time reading parts of your book and meandering through your photos. As time permits I'll read more. Your stories are quite engaging, and the photos make me want to go see for myself.

Thanks for writing; it sounds like you've had some interesting travels!

As I see you're Canadian, I'd encourage you to consider depositing your
memoir with Library and Archives Canada. They've been collecting electronic
books by and about Canadians for some years now, and making them available
through a digital repository that should hopefully persist even if the original
websites they appeared on go away. You can find more information about
their Electronic Collection here:

You are a very patient soul Michael. So much work went into putting all this together!

Good for you.

 

Have a happy holiday season

 


I am traveling in Europe with someone you know XXXXXX.  and he has given me your book to read. It very interesting and brings back a lot of memories as I was in Europe about the same time as you doing the same sort of things. Unfortunately I have forgotten many of the experiences but you have reminded me what a great time it was. I have been back to Europe many times as an adult but as I am sure you know it is not the same thing - Europe is not the same (have you noticed there are no hitchhikers any more) and neither are we.

Thanks
 

I’m really enjoying your e-book.  Why don’t you get it published?  It sure does bring back memories of the 60’s etc.  Some pages make me laugh as having knowing you for quite a while.  I can read your soul in reading the pages.  Haven’t finished yet but I think I will start over again to understand your feelings while writing.  You have had quite a wonderful and colourful life.  I’m passing your site to our family and friends.  Many will enjoy this since they were in the military.
