Coming Home

Sept. 28th, 1972 has always been a special memory. My husband and myself spent the month of September in England and Europe. During that time, we took an 18 day bus tour of Europe for the “Under 30’s Group”. Oh to be once again under 30!! On Sept. 28th we were flying home from London to Vancouver with Air Canada. The game was on and the captain announced the score every time there was a goal. There was a lot of excitement on that plane! When the captain announced the winning goal, the people on board went crazy! We will never forget that moment. We have shared this memory countless times over the past 40 years. We just wish we were once again Under 30!
