Rugged Edge
My friend Craig Borden calls me every single morning on his drive to work. Craig owns Rugged Edge Sports in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. He lives in Humber Valley so he has a 20 minute daily commute and leaves the house anywhere between 5 and 6:30 to open his shop at 7. He’s a hard worker, for certain and tells me I’m the only other person he knows that’s up and willing to talk at this hour. .... Continue Reading this Post

It was a gift from my brother’s girlfriend (now wife Raylene) – meant for him but shared by all of us. In a family of four boys, all born within four years, the expression “First out best dressed” takes on a whole new meaning!” There was not a single morning that shirt didn’t leave our house, except wash day. And I can’t remember Mother running the Maytag more than twice a week. But boy did that shirt last! I’m betting it was on the circuit for 3 or 4 years before the elbows finally wore through. And even then we simply covered it with a V-neck sweater for another season’s use. .... Continue Reading this Post
