The letter D...

Directions - Signal Hill, St. John's



"Don't get your dander up b'y. The little devilskin don't know no better, just give me a second to grab the dough boys and throw on some duds, and I'll be there directly!"

---------------
Dander - temper

Devilskin - a mischievous child

Directly - right away, soon

Don't - doesn't

Dough boy - flour, water and baking powder made into balls and boiled, usually served with boiled dinner or pea soup.

Duds - clothing

  21. Dough boys sound the same as dumplings. I used to have an cassette of a musical group called the Dough Boys--I believe they were from Canada.

  25. We were in Newfoundland for our honeymoon last fall and had a wonderful time. What a gorgeous place! In fact, two of my favourite blogging buddies live there: Laurita at Calling Shotgun http://ringkeeper.blogspot.com/ and Alan Davidson at Conversations from Land's Edge http://conversationsfromlandsedge.blogspot.com/2011/04/silly-sunday-project.html
    You probably already know about them but, if you don't, they're definitely work a look.
