Hello to Court, Grace, Darla, Earon and the rest of "my" gang on

the wind-chill) and looking forward to the seafood chowder tomorrow night. Rob and I will have a cup of grog with a few toasts
to all our friends and family. Mom, I dropped some cabbage rolls off to Aunt Shirley yesterday, she sure was happy to have
them. Anyways, miss you all and love you even more. -- Glenda, Rob, Caliegh, and Morgan (Thunder Bay)

On behalf of my mother I am trying to locate Mr Eric Andrews
from Newcastle NB. He was a soldier in the Canadian army. He was in the Netherlands (Europe) in the summer of 1945. His brother
died in the war in Italy. My Mother, who is 81 years old, has a personal message for him (or his children): she wants to show
him her gratitude.
With kind regards,
Paul van Hooff

I saw in your article a reference to The Crust Man. My Mother would often
recite this verse to us children. I have tried to find the origin of it but have never had any success. Do you know anything
about it? It is the first time anybody has even heard of it!
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Grammie made reference to the Crust Man
in one of her columns. This rhyme had been passed down through generations of her family, however, she doesn't know where
it originated from. If any of our readers do know where this came from, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.)
