Unread post

Lori & Gino--We can also point out amusing things like the quote on p. 109. "The flesh of your mother sticks between my teeth." I laughed out loud while reading that. The quote is one passed through oral tradition by the islanders as something said to taunt one's ememies. I guess the phrase, "your mama" goes waaaaay back! LOL
