On our way to town today, we noticed a major disturbance in the force on Bluff Road. The Blackmore house is missing. Seems like it was just there yesterday! Because it was! Or at least, sometime in the past few days.
Mrs. Blackmore (Shirley) was the secretary at Old Mission Peninsula School when I went there during the 1960s and 70s. Always calm and reassuring in any crisis I might have conjured up in my childhood head. In later years, I’d see her out walking along Bluff Road every day, without fail.

The kids, who we went to school with, were always so nice. I believe Nancy Blackmore was in my sister Carol’s class. Donna was a few years older than me, but I recall one time when she helped get our horses back to the barn after they got loose. I don’t remember the details, but it was very much appreciated at the time.
Anyone know the whereabouts of the Blackmores now? And were there three girls in the family? Seems like there was an older Blackmore girl, but I can’t remember her name. Someone remind me in the comments below.
