An Old Saying

(Elaine Woodford)

If you don't want to over sleep in the morning, ask a dead person whom you once knew to wake you and that person will do it.

Believe it or Not

(Cecil Godwin)

Cec's grandfather and family used to spend their winter up around Birchy Bay, Fogo Island. They'd go there to cut wood, build a boat, catch rabbits or whatever. The first time Cec's father went up there he went with his uncle. Cec's father said to him, "Do you know what your great-grandfather gave me for the whole winter? A fifty pound sack of rolled oats. That's all he gave me for the winter. Now what do you think of that?"
