    Glad to hear you know about the cranberries because my brothers go there for meeting quite often! Better snow tHan frost for the crops. And most of all I'm glad to hear you haven't lost a camera! I hope I understood your response to my post,

    Sorry, but you posted after I responded to Andrew so I didn't see your post. Nothing personal, believe me!

    The Campus is called Oakland University.

I know there's little resemblance, it's just that your piccy of that beaut building on your campus stirred a memory The third photo out of the mag is me in the school's rifle shooting team. To my embarrassment I'm that blonde dude seated second from the right. Unbelievable how we all wore suits and ties in those days.

    Those are great pics, Andrew!

    I see the resemblance in the structure of both your high school and the Human Health Building! Love the retro look if you will.

    That's quite a handsome pic of you in the group shot, Andrew. Didn't know that there was such a thing as a rifle club, but sounds like your school focused on military form of education/teachings?

    Thanks ski, all this kerfuffle by me here is because I saw a resemblance, prompting memories, re your nice campus architecture.
    Interesting your comment about the military form of education. Not that really, it wasn't any kind of military academy, but this was about only 12 years after the war and I voluntarily joined the army cadets which every school had, I guess as a recreation. Weekly "training" with annual bivouacs in a real army camp were great fun. There was a separate, unconnected rifle shooting club there also.
    I guess Australia was still very much gun conscious then, certainly not today. The thing that would be mind blowing today is that we were able to take our rifles home (no ammunition), and even take them on public transport etc, wearing our cadet uniforms, with no one batting an eye.
    Today if anyone sat down in a bus with an army rifle between his knees the bus would be surrounded by the Star Force within minutes LOL. A more innocent naive world then. Sorry, long winded again

    I love your memories about that Andrew, as well as what was so easy back then and what is so strident today! I remember my Dad teaching us four kids learn to shoot the double barrel shot guns not far from the house with a target to practice with. How to dig the butt of the gun deep in to your shoulder so you would not get the kick back. And then using a pistol. I got good enough at that to shoot from the hip and shoot the same can three times while it kicked it along the ground! That was so much fun! a blast in fact,

    I see bicycle and some workbench tools in our backyard. Not a pleasant sight lol. My father is planning to renovate the backyard into a private garden where we would plant vegetables and fruits.

    About the guns and learning to use them! I think the more a parent can teach you stuff like that, when you are very young....it gives the child respect for guns. If i had kids and a gun in the house i would definitely teach my child how to use it for target practice and if you respect your parent you will respect the use of guns. There are so many little kids who have accidentally killed another child only because they found a gun and played with it.
    I would also like to add that when i was learning to use gun i was far, far away from any other people's dwellings!
