It's my photo, so no copyright problems. My daughter in her mid-teen years. A sailing ship. A philanthropic event. My old truck. A sea captain. A high school principal whom was disliked by everyone he met.

In her Grade 11 year, my daughter organized a book drive to collect school books, school supplies, and encyclopedia's to donate to a literacy society which was providing such books to remote South Pacific islands. The sail-training ship Picton Castle would deliver the books to the Islanders during one of it's globe-circling voyages. In the picture, left to right, is Capt. Dan Moreland, owner and captain of the Picton Castle; my daughter Gwyn; the representative of the NS Literacy Project whose name I cannot remember, and the principal of Gwyn's high school. In the background is the Picton Castle on the marine railroad at Lunenburg Foundry Plant No. 2, ready to be re-launched after a preparatory refit for her voyage. The date was May 26, 2003.

And, we assume, the bacon is hidden somewhere

Well... did he say 'everything'... or didn't he?

Are Canahoodians 'literalist' sympathizers or aren't they?

Is today International Ridiculous Day, or ain't it?


p.s. The bacon is likely not obvious. Probably hidden where I store MY bacon - at my waistline...

With that bowsprit sticking out like that you have to ask where the unicorn is? Sheesh - talk about literalists!
