I apologize for any errors or omissions.
And 75 years ago on the Woeste Hoeve in the center of Holland 140 imprisoned citizens were executed as a reprisal of an
operation by the underground on a Military Staff car. A memorial Service was held this weekend.
This fellow in Northern Ontario made a Sea aquarium but needed some seawater but did not know where to buy it. So, he drove to Halifax with his pick up and saw a Nova Scotian fishing at the beach and asked him if he could fill up his barrel. The fisherman said “Okay but it costs $5.00”.
When he got back home he was still short of seawater because he had spilled some along the way.
So he made another trip back to Halifax and the beach but this time it was low tide.
So he saw the same fisherman and told him “I see you have sold quite a bit of water since I was here!”
To all our Comrades sick at home, in the hospital or nursing homes you are in our thoughts and prayer and we wish you well.
