Feature Letter of April 4th, 2020
Watson, William Douglas
We started to school Monday, and immediately they handed us computers and all the instruments along with an exam paper. You can imagine just how rusty we all are and boy! Did we show it, but things come back remarkably quickly, so now we're getting back into the swing of things.
After school, we all make a dash for Lady Ryder's where we get tea and peanut butter & jam sandwiches free. She really does a wonderful job of keeping us happy and on the go. Sunday she arranged it for Tommy and I to go to a doctor's for supper. It really turned out lovely.
The conversation turned to what their impressions of Canada would be, and I was truly amazed. The younger girls pictured Canada as a very wooded country with log cabins and cowboys riding miles into town-a place where you had to go out and shoot your meal and cook it over a campfire. They had never heard of corn on the cob, but their mouth's watered (as did our own) when we told them what nice huge juicy steaks we have.
