I grew up with the Pennie clan in Ralston in the 1950s and early '60s, and my young wife and I stayed with Archie and Barbara for several weeks in 1977 when we came to Ottawa for my graduate studies. Three memories come to mind. The first, when I was about 10 or so, our families were summer holidaying together in the Cyprus Hills park. Archie, as a prideful Scott, was truly chagrined when I came in after supper with 11 fat (and not so fat) trout, which trumped his early morning record and so somewhat restored honour for my father, who had been skunked. The second remembrance was in 1977 when upon arrival at chez Pennie, my wife and I were handed sweaters (the furnace not being required till a proper snowfall) and paint brushes, with which to earn our mince and tatties. The final was about the same time when we were all up to the Pennie/Smith camp in Quebec and Archie bearded one of Barbara's cousins, an M.P. into offering me a day job as a constituency assistant. I negotiated a polite decline, but appreciated the earnest sentiment behind Archie's motive.

One of a kind indeed. Condolences to Barbara, Ross and Sheena from Bob and Irene Groves.
