  • I was restoring some old photos last week and came across a few with Art. Brought back some 60 year old memories. It was coincidental that Kurt called me and asked if I knew the Cheadles. I was just visiting my Nephew who is the fire chief in Maple ridge this week as well. Small world. Armin - Posted by: Armin Sachse (Brooklands school) on: Mar 31, 2013
