A few weeks ago (yay rainy days) Michael had a brilliant idea...(yes, in addition to washing clothes in the bathtub, being a great cook and you should see him handle a machete he also comes up with a brilliant idea on occasion...ok...frequently:) We keep finding (yay rainy days) neat stuff - on the beach, while hiking around and in the many used furniture and antique stores we like to explore, garage sales etc - so he thought I should write a post called "Catch of the Day" which also has a seaside flavour to it. Brilliant right?
However, there is one little problem with this otherwise terrific idea...the DAY part. See, it implies (yay rainy days) that there is a catch every day and that I'm going to post about it everyday but with infrequent internet use I just can't manage that, so perhaps it should be "Catch of the Week" but that doesn't sound quite as catchy (hee hee hee).
Anyhoo, (yay rainy days) today's CATCH is truly our most wonderful catch so far this summer. While happily browsing in Coulson's used/antique store on the waterfront in Summerside I happened to glance up just as a man was walking past me holding a bunch of magazines in his hands. I recognized the cover and the name - Family Herald - Canada's National Farm Magazine because my mother had several of her children's stories published in them when I was a little girl. I literally shouted that out to the older gentleman and he gamely assisted Michael and I in searching through them. They were dated in the l950's and 1960's - the time period my mother was writing for them - could I be so lucky?? YES!! We found four magazines with her stories published in them!!
I think these qualify as the "Catch of the YEAR!!"
