Nan's Sunday Supper
The last Sunday before Christmas last year, my brother took his son Alexander down to our parents' home to go riding his snowmobile for a couple of hours. On the way he picked up his friend Jonathon to go riding with him. They did this for a while until it was supper time. They went in to enjoy Nan's Sunday supper, which consisted of left-over dinner plus homemade partridge pie for dessert. Once Jonathon ate

Dear God
About two years ago our son Ryan was the typical three-year-old little boy who very much enjoyed wrestling. One day I removed my shirt after doing some work and he asked why. "To wrestle," I said. Within a minute he had his off and he said that he was ready. Just before we started he stopped, looked up and said, "OK God you can make be bigger now." He got the the 1,2, 3 that day!

Barred in Church
It was the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. My husband and I were home from Ontario to spend the summer (we are misplaced Newfoundlanders). My sister called and asked me to go to the church with her to drop off her contributions in giving thanks to God for his bountiful gifts.

It was around 4 p.m. The congregation had the table laden down with everything you could mention from the harvest - vegetables, jams, bread,

In a Pickle on the Shore
It was caplin season near our new home down around the cove. As a "come from away" I was excited to learn all the news things about old ways. I watched and asked questions and the answers mostly made sense, except "pickle."

"Yes maid, a little pickle along the edge of the caplin beach will sometimes draw them in." My goodness, I thought, I can do that! So down to the beach I

Funny Signs
Dear Sir; Here are a few signs that I've seen in my travels:

Optometrist's door: If you don't see what you're looking for, you've come to the right place

Car dealership: The best way to get back on your feet? Miss a car payment!

Funeral home: Drive carefully. We can wait.

Happiness is... a back seat driver with a

Spare Tire?
My wife and I were driving through Torbay on holidays. We saw a small foreign car drive past us with a small donut spare tire. She says to me "Look at Buddy over there. He's goin' on three tires and one bologna skin."

Birthday Surprise
Back a couple years ago I was trying to decide what to get my daughter for her tenth birthday. She, being the humorous, outdoor type and not really one for dolls or girly toys, made it very hard to find something she would like.

After weeks of asking her and receiving no response my patience was getting thin. Finally a couple days before her birthday I sat her down and made it very
