H is for...


St. Lawrence Harbour



"He's some hard ticket. We sprung a leak in the boat, and had to hug the shoreline, but that harbour tom cod wouldn't even sit down, I had a like to hove him over board and teach him a lesson."

-------
Had a like to - almost.

Harbour tom cod - an immature codfish.

Hard ticket - a hard case or impish person.

Hove - {rhymes with stove} - threw or tossed

Hug - stay close to the shoreline.

  17. Came from away to visit yer blog after you visited mine (sudden alarm of donkeys) way over on the other coast.
    I thought I'd return the favour and glad I did. It's nice to have a wee refresher on Newf-speech; I tend to think of it of as similar Franglais in that it is one of the country's unofficial languages most of us speak or at least understand when we hear it...

    I'm enjoying your posts, girl, keep 'em comin...

  19. I haven't heard "hard case" since I left Dublin - it was fun to see it being used to explain "hard ticket".

    Thanks for the excursion into the Newfoundland alphabet, and a great "H" entry.
