It was the Thursday before Good Friday in 1972 when I said farewell to my first girlfriend Cathy. In fact, she was the first girl I kissed, way back then Grade 7.

I was riding on my parents’ car, heading east, over 120 Street and 107 Avenue when this song came over 630 CHED.[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COiIC3A0ROM[/embedyt]
And we have, over all these years: Cathy phoned me Wednesday before heading to Europe with her two daughters.
