On the Third Day of Christmas

…My True Love Sent to Me Down at Florida Seaside Villa Judith: Oh those penguins are so precious dear, but better bring them inside. Too easy to carry them off. Lancelot: But I got them with little built in bells so we can hear them being moved. Nifty, eh? Judith: Over your snores? Better bring them […]

On the First Day of Christmas

…My True Love Gave to Me It might have been the cheap strawberry flavoured wine, or the candy I found left in a box that I thought was empty (what did those Nuns put in their caramels?) I dunno. I lay down for a minute and next thing you know I was transported to Christmas […]

Happy Jukeboxing Day

The jukebox, God rest its soul,and its minion, the 45 rpm record, have gone the way of the rotary dial telephone and the bite-sized electric chord organ. Back in the seventies there was a jukebox in any establishment in rural Newfoundland that had a sit-down eating table. And every pool hall where you wouldn’t want […]

Happy Coxing Day

Cox is short for coxswain. The coxswain is the little person who sits in the back of the boat and yells. I don’t have any of my own pictures of coxswains although I do have first hand experience. I rowed in a coxed four racing shell for a season in 1992. Our cox was named […]
