Johnny, a Bay Roberts man, was chatting with a good friend of his, Sheldon. Having heard that Johnny's wife was not feeling well, Sheldon asked, "And how's Minnie doing?"
Johnny responded with a question, "Didn't you know she's on the Southern Shore?" "No, I didn't hear!" Sheldon said. "When did she pass away?"
Of course, he thought Johnny had said Minnie was on the Other Shore, meaning Heaven.
