Nice weekend after the late week blizzard on Friday.

I noticed this chap doing it tough with two heavy green junks of wood on hand drawn komatik. 

Got in a couple of shots before he was too fare down the road. Don't mean to invade his privacy but it reminded me of something persons from away mentioned recently.

The conversation was along the lines: they seemed amazed that they saw a guy carrying wood on his shoulder quite a ways from town heading back to town.

I reiterated that that sort of scene is quite common here. People hauling wood by hand on komatiks, in fish boxes and on shoulders, and not only men.

I figure they are either training for the worlds strangest person competition or are at the very bottom of the stream in the trickle down economy.

There is a prize for the correct answer.

I found this letter to the editor very moving, Regular lives in Goose Bay and has an adopted daughter who is from Nain.

good to know that there are people ready to help someone who is having a difficult time. I hope the lady is OK now.
