For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt? And No, he’s not Adolph”s brother
We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, ‘You don’t know Jack Schitt!’
Well, thanks to genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.
Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt.
Awe Schitt was married to O. Schitt, the Indian fertilizer magnate, and owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc.
They had one son, Jack

In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt.
The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.
Against her parents’ objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout.
After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced.
Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name.
She was then known as Noe Schitt-Sherlock.
Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition who was nick-named Chicken Schitt.
Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.
The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials.
The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.
Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world.
He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.
Now when someone says, ‘You don’t know Jack Schitt,’ you can correct them.
God Bless and keep reading

Stolen Valour – Treatment of Veterans

It seems we see more and more of these phonies popping up these days. Stolen Valour appear to be doing a good job spotting them, but what about the legion branches?. Are they just so intent on recruiting new members they don’t care what their backgrounds are or if they actually served.

Why does the legions not require some form of proof of service before accepting these people.

I can’t recall having to prove my claims of service I was never required to furnish proof, show my service docs or anything else, I was taken at my word.  I could have easily claimed I’d been Admiral of the Fleet or some similar ridiculous rank and nobody would have check!!!! (well maybe if Admiral of the Fleet!!).

I have no recollection of ever being asked for proof of service when I joined the legion some thirty years ago. Or more recently (2014) when I transferred my membership to the Wellington branch. I was asked to fill out a couple of forms listing my legion history and military service. No one, to my knowledge checked?

I left the Wellington branch at the first meeting in January 2016  I was appalled to learn they applied a double standard for veterans. Example WW2 and Korean vets and their wives eat free at remembrance day banquets, all other vets paid for their wives. I raise this issue as being blatantly wrong, all veterans should be treated equally. The response surprised and offended me. The president said, “We can look into it, but there is no rush remembrance is a long way off” I tried to explain this wasn’t about a free dinner it was about recognizing all veterans equally. The president then turned to Gilles Pinchaud the Provincial Command rep at the meeting. He decided to give the members his definition of what/who qualifies as a veteran. Egads!!! did he really think I or other veterans needed him to tell us if we were really veterans???? Anyway, nothing changed that night, I put it down to the fact one could have counted the vets in attendance on one hand. I left the meeting and never returned, I never renewed my membership the following year or since.

How about this!!!!  If you go to the Motor Vehicle Registration office on PEI and request a Veterans License plate, they ask you for proof of service, service records etc.

Can this RCL continue to exists the way it operates and treats real veterans?????

A Last Promotion before Surgery!!!!!

I have to get up at 4 am on Monday morning,  in order to be at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by 6 am. Cataract surgery on my right eye. Have been waiting almost three years, it will be nice to see clearly again. In the meantime I cant read but you can so why not pick up a copy of my book????

Chapter XXI Armageddon. My latest work and first one of fiction.
Back cover Bio
Adam opens the Holy Bible to the book of Revelations chapter 21. The year is 4013. You might ask how he came to end up two thousand years into the future. This is an exciting story that follows a nuclear submarine across the North Atlantic. A disused Second World War army research base situated in the Highlands of Scotland. An ultra secret meeting held deep in the bowels of the Vatican. It is a fast pace and exciting story that takes the reader on a long and mysterious journey. Follow the strange events that lead to the disappearance of an empty Johnny Walker whisky bottle and the suspicion of a spy in the inner circle. Meet Angus the fiery old Scottish preacher who likes a wee dram and is at the centre of this fantastic mission. Hold your breath as a Roman Army advances on our two heroes’ as they attempt to escape.
I’m afraid that is all I’m going to tell you about this story,
However, if you decide to read my book allow me to first recommend you find a comfortable seat, a glass of single malt, then you will be ready.
Review by: Syrphian on Jan. 10, 2015 :
I really enjoyed reading this book! It is a great story with many twists and turns while giving you something profound to think about. The author has a real talent and I believe a future in fiction. The book starts off interesting right from page one with the big mystery in the sand! The author’s writing style is free-flowing which makes it easy to read. This gives the reader a more pleasurable reading experience while with some author’s styles it is more like a text book experience than a novel. I believe that this book has film potential, too.
Somehow he combined a whiskey bottle, time travel, Hunter River Prince Edward Island, a Naval submarine, Jesus, complex machinery, a spy, a world terrorist crisis, the Vatican, Islam, Adam & Eve and a great mystery story all in one book! You have to read it to see what I mean – you will not be disappointed as it is well worth it.
So, in summary, a ‘good read’ as they say… I enjoyed it from page one until the final page. I must admit that the ending was a surprise as I figured that it would conclude the way I thought it should. I am sure that is what the author wanted me to believe. The actual ending was rather different, and a complete and thought-provoking surprise. A very clever ending indeed!
I would recommend this book to anyone who desires a good story, well-written, exciting and a pleasure to read. You will not be disappointed and you will be wanting more from this author when you finish this book!
(reviewed within a month of purchase)

Can be ordered on line at Amazon, as an ebook at Or directly from me.

God Bless and keep reading

A Little Sunday Humour

Overheard at a Walmart Checkout
Posted on July 22 nd 2018
by irishroverpei


‘Lisa, hello! How’re you?’‘Good. Yourself?’‘Where’s your friend Madison today? She alright?
’‘Yeah. Well, no, not really actually.’
‘Oh? What you done?’
‘Well, we had a bit of a falling out yesterday. You know, a bit of a misunderstanding.’
‘That’s not like you two. Thick as thieves usually. So what happened?’
‘Well, I was in the kitchen having a coffee when my youngest came running in all flushed in the face and with eyes like saucers. “Mom,” she stuttered as she tried to find the words, “what do you call it when someone sleeps on top of another person?”
I tell you, I nearly dropped the coffee all over my lap. My good God, had she reached that age already? My little baby – where did the years go? Was she really ready for this? Of course I knew the day would come, and I dreaded it. Where was her father when I needed him? He told the boys all about it – you know – life. But this was my little girl, so it was my responsibility. Anyway, I sat her down and got her a drink, and I did my best to break it to her as kindly and sensitively as I possibly could, explaining how the mum lay down on the bed and the dad lay on top of her, what he did and what she did, stressing all the time that it was a natural thing to do because they were so much in love. It was called having sex. And to my surprise she wasn’t the least bit disturbed by it all, and when I finished she gave a huge smile and bounced back out of the door.
Then shortly afterwards, as I was on my third cup of strong coffee, she flew back in the doors beaming all over her face. “Mom,” she chirped, “it isn’t called sex. It’s called bunk beds and Sally’s mum wants to see you …”
Out of the mouths of babes??? oops Will that be charge or cash? bye!!

Economics 101 British Style

Read to the end. 😀😉😊😆
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines 2 years ago, you would have £49.00 today.
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in AIG insurance company 2 years ago, you would have £33.00 today.
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers 6 years ago, you would have nothing today.
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Northern Rock 5 years ago, you would have nothing today
But, if you had purchased £1,000 worth of beer one year ago at Tesco’s, drunk all the beer, then taken the aluminum cans to the scrap metal dealer, you would have received £214.00.
Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle.
A recent study found that the average Briton walks about 900 miles a year.
Another study found that Britons drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.
That means that, on average, us Britons get about 41 miles to the gallon!
Makes you proud to be British!

Remembering RJ Mitchell

It is important to remember this very clever and dedicated man, for he designed the Spitfire. Without this amazing aircraft it is very possible Britain would have been invaded by Hitler and his Nazi hoards and lost the war. We would indeed be living in a much different world today if that had happened. The Spitfire played a very important role in winning the battle for Britain. Unfortunately RJ Mitchell didn’t live to see the wonderful success of his aeroplane . Still to this day pilots laud this amazing machine as one of the greatest aeroplanes ever.
It is worth a visit to the Air Show at Slemon Park (formerly CFB Summerside) The show begins on the last weekend in August, 29th weekend. The replica of the Spitfire will be on display at the show. It is, I believe a two third size scale model of the original and was created by John Hart.
Hope to see everyone there.
God Bless and keep reading

Changing Face of the Legion

I wonder why I bother with issues regarding the legion, I’m no longer a member so why should I care? Well, maybe because I’m offended by todays legion members. I see them strutting around at legion functions and parades wearing those completely phoney legion medals. I see the general public applaud them as if they were actual veterans. These people are simply wannabees pretending to be real military serving and veteran personnel. They march and salute wearing the legion uniform, and they flaunt their cheap tin medals for everyone to see. I will post a few examples of these pretend hero’s.

A Little Sunday Humour

A widowed Jewish lady, still in good shape, was sunbathing on a totally deserted beach at Cavendish
She looked up and noticed that a man her age, also in good shape, had walked up, placed his blanket on the sand near hers and began reading a book.
Smiling, she attempted to strike up a conversation with him. “How are you today?”

“Fine, thank you,” he responded, and turned back to his book.
“I love the beach. Do you come here often?” she asked.
“First time since my wife passed away 2 years ago,” he replied and turned back to his book.
“I’m sorry to hear that. My husband passed away three years ago and it is very lonely,” she countered. “Do you live around here?”, she asked.
Yes, I live over in Rustico , he answered, and again he resumed reading.
Trying to find a topic of common interest, she persisted, “Do you like pussy cats?”
With that, the man dropped his book, came over to her blanket, tore off her swimsuit and gave her the most passionate lovemaking of her life.
When the cloud of sand began to settle, she gasped and asked the man:
“How did you know that was what I wanted?”
The man replied: “How did you know my name was Katz?”

What a couple of months can change?

You might ask, why are we keeping that dreadful old dead tree trunk in our front garden? Well sometimes such things are deceptive, sometimes we need patience and a wee bit of faith. I realize a sneeze, a gust of wind or to simply lean on this old tree trunk and it would fall to pieces in a pile of dust . It is indeed rotten to the core and I’d agree its a bit of an eyesore when the snow disappears. I took this photo on the 18th May 2018.


I took this latest photo on the 18th July. See the beautiful transformation that nature so cleverly supplies. Now you can understand why we care for this old trunk, we brace it and protect it. It adds and provides beauty every summer to our front lawn. I only hope it continues to stand for many years to come

Speeding on PEI

I do not know the actual numbers of vehicle accidents, deaths and injuries on our provincial roads. However I’m quite confident in saying it is too many. My own experience of driving from Wellington to Summerside or Charlottetown on Hwy 2 is to say the least, dangerous. I drive the speed limit and vehicles tailgate and or pass like I have no right to hold them up.. I had a car pass me on the inside using the soft shoulder. Cars pass on double lines, on the crest of a hill and in the face of oncoming traffic. Police presence is minimal and I  understand why. Almost certainly it is caused by shortages of officers and lacking of adequate funding. So why do we not have photo radar? is it too costly, to difficult to operate? It would surely slow drivers down, and for those who fail to slow down, well, they’d be paying for the cameras.  This must surely be something for the Police Services  and the Provincial Government to consider
