I had always thought it was a combination of my folks chasing their dreams and me using radio to pursue mine that was responsible for me having lived in a lot of places during my life. I was born in Winnipeg but headed to Australia with my Mom and Dad. (pictured going through the Panama Canal) After a couple of years there we moved back to Canada and Vancouver then on to the prairies to live in Bowsman and Swan River. Next we were off to North Kildonan and finally to Transcona.
Now it was time for me to begin my own journey and the first place I moved to was Elmwood then right back to Transcona where I bought my first home. Now it was off to places like Saskatoon, Sudbury, Ottawa, Mississauga, Gilford. Toronto, Indianapolis, Coronado, Austin, La Jolla, Boston, Ft. Lauderdale, Pompano, and finally West Palm Beach where I have spent the last 18 years keeping an eye on my Daughter Cami.
I never thought much about all the moving around I did because at the time it just seemed necessary. But Bill Gardner’s father in law knew exactly why I moved around and according to him it was in my blood. Bill was miffed at me one time because I had not returned his call after he had called me from his in laws in Hawaii and left a message. I assured him that I had called him back and left a message with the dude who answered the phone. Bill said that would have been his Father in law who was usually pretty good with the message thing, so he was going to check my story OUT with him. A couple of hours later Bill called back laughing, he said when he asked his father in law if he remembered a George Johns calling a week or so ago his Father in law said absolutely! Bill now being a little confused queried him about why he never passed the message on. He said was pretty sure didn’t want to talk to any undesirables like me and when Bill asked why he thought I was a bad person he claimed I had to be because my name was Johns and everybody knows Johns is the name most used by Gypsy’s, so I threw the message away because I knew you had no time for no damn Gypsy.
