    Hey zontar. If life were fair, I would be living in Newfoundland/Labrador. Peaceful. I don't think I would ever tire of the scenery. Folks are pretty cool too. If you can understand the speak.

    Thanks wardo1219. Just been taking in strays for 'boot a year now. Last time I tried to thin the herd, I shed one (D-28p), and three more slipped in. I think I'll have to thin more often.





    The '05 Larrivee OM-03, '84 K. Yairi (thin), and the Stella parlor are recent. So much more comfortable that the rest of the herd are pretty much case queens now. Love the OM. ☮

    Edit: Oh! And one for doublewah.

    I've met people from Newfoundland that only have an accent on a handful of words--or if they get excited & others that you have to listen carefully--but most were in between.
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    It's tough to understand how Newfoundland is the only province in a time zone that's half an hour different than everybody else. Sometimes the words are tough to understand too.

    The time zone thing is just their thing...
