Kids and Pines and Nursery Rhymes ... by Archie Bigg

Thursday, January 30, 2020

One of Archie’s passions is encouraging the young people to speak the Norfolk Island language. To provide the children with a resource he has chosen a number of popular nursery rhymes and rewritten them in the Norfolk language also giving them a Norfolk Island flavour. 

Talented local artist Tracey Yager has complemented the nursery rhymes with her beautiful illustrations – poor Humpty Dumpty was found by the king’s horsemen down in the convict ruins at Kingston.  He had just fallen off Gallow’s Gate!

What a Predicament

Thursday, January 30, 2020

An older man lived alone. He wanted to spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who normally helped him, was in prison. During his usual correspondence with his son, the father wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his predicament.

Shortly he received a reply, "Please Dad, don't dig up the garden, that's where I buried the evidence!"

At 4 A.M. the next morning, a dozen police appeared in the father's garden and began to dig up the entire garden, without finding any evidence.

Confused, the older man wrote another note to his son telling him what had occurred and asking for an explanation. His son replied, "Now plant your potatoes, Dad. It's the best I could do at this time."
