My sister and friend were chatting while I was on a phone call. As I hung up the phone, I heard my sister say "...get happy." Instantly, I said, "Isn't it 'be happy,' like in 'Don't worry! Be happy!'?" "No," she replied, "you know, that leader in the Middle East - my husband calls him Get Happy!" "Oh, Gaddafi!" I replied as we all exploded with laughter!
One Smelly Drive to School
My daughter-in-law Liz was driving her son and daughter to school one morning. It was spring and the farmers were out in full force getting fields ready. Soon an awful smell filled the car. Liz explained that farmers spread manure on fields to make crops grow better. Isaac, who is four, asked what manure was. Liz told him it was poop. "Oh Gross," he said. "The farmers are putting cat poop on the fields."

My five-year-old grandson came into my room one morning asking me what I had on. (I had on a purple night shirt). Oh I said it's my night shirt. He stopped for a moment then said, "Well could you put on your UP shirt and come play with me?"

Usually my brother Mike, who also lives in Nova Scotia, goes the same time. During one of these visits we, along with my parents, decided to take a trip to St. John's. My brother thought he might fly out of St. John's to Nova Scotia instead of taking the alternative of driving back to Port aux Basques and then the boat. Our trip to St. John's wasn't on a schedule, we planned it as we went and wasn't sure when we'd reach our destination. On the way my brother made inquiries at the airport about schedules, etc. Because of our "lack of a schedule" and the need to be at the airport on a schedule, when I asked my brother if he was flying he said "Probably not, everything was too up in the air." ...
