Hi Lori, My boss from Tilting said he knows Agnes Miller and her dad Paddy. Is Joe Greene a teacher? If he is, then he knows him too. He knows of the Dawes. SMALL WORLD!!!
His wife's maiden name is Dwyer.
It's -22 here today.....what's it like there?
Hi Lori, it is amazing that a country as large as Canada is and most of us have connections in almost every province. My mother in law is from Newfoundland, she grew up in an outport village Bay du Nord up the Lapoile River. She is going on 92 and we have had to recently place her in a long term care facility. I myself have never been there but several of my friends went to Quilts Canada last year and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Hi Lori! My name is Beth Sparkes-Dawe and I'm living in Holyrood! Its awesome to hear from another Newfoundlander! are you a part of a guild or anything? we just moved back to NL a couple of years ago! I'd love to swap ideas etc with you!
My boss's last name is Sexton. He is the oldest of 13. His wife is also from there,,,,10 kids in that family. I'll be darned if I can remember her last name....I'll have to check tomorrow. What was your maiden name? (If you don't mind me asking). How long have you been married? Your comment is so sweet!
