This is how I looked in that year. It is someone else. I was at the Supreme Court of Canada that day, as a law clerk. Calumny and the Egg of Columbus

Phare de Cap au Saumon, La Malbaie, Québec
From what I understand, I was born on the second floor of this building. I was the elder: my elder sister died very young.
The house looks different. This is where I live until I was 5.

This was the family house. It was built by my father and uncles.

Asterix, French Astérix, French cartoon character, a small-statured cunning Gallic warrior who, with the help of a magical strength potion, defends his village and goes on comic globe-trotting adventures. Asterix was created by writer René Goscinny and illustrator Albert Uderzo and debuted in 1959 in the French comic magazine Pilote.

Asterix is one of the most beloved characters in French popular culture. He resides in a remote Gaulish village in the middle of the Roman Empire as does his best friend, Obelix. Having fallen into a vat of the potion when he was an infant, Obelix is extraordinarily strong. He is also rather clumsy and is the frequent (if unwitting) source of injuries and accidents in the village. He is not allowed to drink the strength potion for fear that it will make him even more destructive, and his attempts to sneak a draft are the source of many comic mishaps.
