J is for Jam Jams
I'm putting on the jigg's dinner now, would you run out and get a junk of wood for the stove? If you see that little jackeen from next door, send him home to his mother, he's nothing but a little jinker that one.
Jackeen - a mischievous boy
Jam Jams - moist, jam filled biscuits made by Purity Factories in Newfoundland for over 50 years. (pictured above)
Jigger - a weighted lure with two or more hooks, used to attract and snag codfish, squid and other fish
Jigg's dinner - a boiled dinner comprised of salt beef, potatoes, carrots, turnip, cabbage and sometimes parsnip, pease pudding and dumplings.
Jillik - to skip stones across water.
Jinker - a bringer of bad luck
Junk - a piece of firewood sawn off to fit a stove
Exam #2 at 9:00 this morning... come Thursday I'll have all my exams finished and only one remaining hurdle standing between me and graduation. So please bear with me, I will be catching up with with blog visits and comments very soon.
Again, thanks for visiting, reading and commenting. "I" was inspiring, today should be "J" jolly, Thursday I will be playing Katch up(ok, that's a stretch, I'm a geek).
