I had four girls--actually there were five--and they went to my neighbour's, Frankie Maclnnis over at the road. I was in town getting my hair cut. Lisa must've been in bed because she didn't hear the door. They asked her where we lived and they said, "Oh, we know"--you know, just neighbours. And they couldn't believe that neighbours this close--that we knew each ??other. Because in Montreal, you don't know your next-door neighbour. And they won? dered what kind of people Angus and I'd be like. And they said, "Oh, go over. Knock on the door." And they said, "Oh, God, we can't do that." So they left.

So, sure enough, I waited a few min? utes . One of them was opening the van and they didn't know wheth? er they should get out. So I went to the door and I said, "Were you looking for some? body?" "Would Ash? ley be home-?" They knew. I said, "No, Ashley won't be home." "Oh, it's okay, then." I said, "Would you like to come in?"
