Who you longs to?
Not sure if I mentioned this one in my sayings post, but this was a common question back home, essentially asking who your parents are.
Well the sarcastic portion of me was likely to respond, I longs to me mudder bye!
My mother, like a lot of Newfoundland mothers was and is parent to many more than her own. The door was always open, a crowd was always welcome. We’ve been know to have to take shifts eating to make room at the table.
We never had a lot, but it was shared, and many people called my home theirs, as I did with many others. We don’t ask for anything when at these extended mudder’s houses, we go to the fridge and take it, cause their home was ours, and ours was theirs.
So to my mudder, my sister, all my extended mudders, and to all the wunnerful mudders I’ve never met, happy mudders day!
- Settlements of the PastJust a short post to followup on my mention of the cemetery at the brickyard in Snook’s Harbour. Years and years ago it appears there was a settlement here called Sooley’s Brook. I can’t really recall it being talked about in my generation, but like a lot of things, the …
- Handy Andy Entertainment StoreHandy Andy Associate store was located on Marine Drive in Clarenville, and sold camping and fishing gear, bikes, and automotive parts. But I think the biggest draw there was entertainment. It was always a favorite spot to go to look at new fishing rods and reels, as well as tackle. …
- Trick or Treat, Smell My FeetGive me something good to eat Not too big Not too small Just the size of Montreal I remember chanting this old rhyme in school, but I’d never think of actually saying it at the door! I don’t think the old timers back home would have been very amused! But …
If you follow the tech scene at all, and likely even if not, you’ve probably heard a lot of buzz about Mastodon lately. I’m actually perhaps a little late to the scene, but I joined the bandwagon this past weekend, and thought I’d share my thoughts and tips. Sorry for any incoherence. And I’ll update […]
Was watching (or trying at least) to watch some sports last night. Harkening back to my love of curling, there’s a tournament in Toronto, and I was expecting coverage. Apparently they aren’t deeming to until Thursday, so be it. But for the love of god, between them TSN and SportsNet have 10 different feeds. Last […]
I can’t say I watch wrestling much anymore, but when I was younger I remember going to some bar or another to watch almost all the major events. I have a memory of this one motel bar out by what used to be the beginning of the divided highway, which was nearly into Kenmount road […]
The NHL announced today it won’t be participating in the next olympics. I get some of the reasons, but I really think it’s short sighted. Yeah it’s in the middle of the season, yeah some of the players could get injured. But they could get injured walking to the rink too. To me the the olympics […]
I’m currently watching the men’s world curling championships. I know a lot of people laugh at the game and can’t seem to follow it, but to me it’s probably my favorite thing to watch. It sounds simple, get your rock as close to the center as you can, and prevent the other team from doing […]
