Poison Tea
Growing up in Conception Bay, Mom and the older sisters weeded the vegetables on Saturdays. This particular Saturday, around three o'clock, Mom wanted a snack. I was chosen to go home and get tea and molasses bread. I found an empty Crush bottle in the pantry, rinsed it out, and put the tea in it. Mom enjoyed the snack, but got sick afterwards.

The girls told Dad what had happened at suppertime. When the Crush bottle was mentioned, Dad, looking pale, jumped off his chair and went to the pantry. He returned shortly after and said, "I had poison in that bottle for the cabbage grubs."

If I hadn't rinsed out the bottle, I wonder what might have happened to Mom?

Craft & Bake Sale

It was in the fall of the year when I sent Mr. and Mrs. Warren a meal of fresh codfish, potatoes and corn. Mr. Warren is an elderly gentleman who dabbles in Newfoundland music, writing his own songs and then making homemade CDs. He's the kind of musician you see from time to time set up at your local mall with a table and a chair, music blaring from an
