Newfoundland Journal - Mackerel Trapping

Halloween in Florida

My Grand nephew and niece dressed up as a ninja turtle and a baby turtle. At 4 1/2, he has gotten the idea of Look Cute - Get Candy. She is only a bit over a year so so hasn't quite gotten the idea. On the other hand when offered a bowl of sweets, she was not shy about taking one or two or....
