    The green copper roof as seen from the Park Plaza Hotel

ROM was one of my favorite haunts growing up in the '60's. Dad was executive manager of the Park Plaza Hotel across the street, and we lived on the 11th floor of the south wing. The rich green of ROM's copper roof dominated our view every time we looked out our windows. It felt like rolling from one part of home into another. Even now, my fascination with the place and people has never waned. There is always so much to explore, so many places to lose oneself! Happy 100th birthday to The Royal Ontario Museum from a proud and continuing member.
