My folks come from an island in the Bay of Fundy. Island folk are rather insular, sometimes even xenophobic, and they have their ways.

Some of them are quite the characters, colourful like you don’t see everyday for sure.

One of these was Poopy Small. My uncle told me how Poopy got his nickname. I’ll leave those schoolyard details to your imagination, but it stuck even after he was all grown up and a grandfather to boot.

One time when Poopy was not feeling entirely like his nickname, if you get my drift, he was so uncomfortable that he visited the crusty old island doctor for relief.

The doc told Poopy to take some suppositories and come back in a week.

Doc: How’d those suppositories work for you, Poopy?

Poopy: (whiny old man voice) You know doc, for all the good they did me, I might just as well have stuck them up me arse.

That’s Island Folk for you.

You know, you don’t have to be insular to be xenophobic. I had to look those up. It’s too dang early for blogs requiring a dictionary.

Very very funny. Except I gotta wonder what he did do with them.

Yah. We used to have a kid we called ‘Stinky’. He’s in his 60’s now and it’s STILL what everybody calls him. And he even smells better now and everything.

while reading you, I clicked on your links and the desire to meet you for hearty chatter over a cup of coffee was growing deeper with each new verse. Your sites just put me under a charm.
I am not a psychic by profession, but psychic realm depicts my homeland – the comprehension of the above enables me to endure my today and blossom with the hot Hi! at a moment.
Hope to meet you soon again.
