Message to my Canadian Readers....
Mike is looking for the kids doing kids’ movies in Canada in the late eighties with Rock Demers.
The kids who tried out for the movies are all grown up now. Mike is trying to find them, and give them a copy of their audition from long ago.
Mike's friend, Lois Siegel, who helped at the time, is standing by in Ottawa, ready to help.
You can see the photos at The Life of Riley......so pop over there and see if you can help out with the search....
and wish Olive a Happy Birthday......
