Well, while being a teacher at a high school in the borough of Scarborough in Metropolitan Toronto, I moonlighted at night. Afterwards, before going home, I would drop in at Ramada Inn’s disco to catch the last show of a platinum recording band out of the USA.
This was where I met my wife's sister who became my dance partner. I told her my plan to publish the magazine; and, she told me her sister had split with her husband and could help me; so, she introduced me to her; and, the rest is history.
What happened to my Barbadian wife, you ask? Well, she finally divorced me, saying that she had never loved me; that she had had a boyfriend who was on a sports scholarship in the USA when her mother forced her to consent to marry me on December 31, 1966.

Barbara and I had a great wedding in a Presbyterian church. It was followed by a memorable reception held in a popular rented hall in the bustling city of North York.
